Talk about something giving you life!

Honey, if you’re having a Terrible Tuesday then you definitely need to check out Patti LaBelle’s recent performance on “Dancing with the Stars.”

The soon-to-be 71-year-old and her pro partner, Artem Chigvintsev, set it off Monday while dancing to 50 Cent’s 2003 hit “In da Club.”

Dressed in a silver fringe dress, Auntie Patti (c’mon, you know she’s your aunt in your head, too) shimmied, bounced and two-stepped with Chigvintsev in a club-like setting on stage.

The performance was so inspiring that “DWTS” judge Carrie Ann Inaba shouted, “All Hail Queen Patti LaBelle!” as she and fellow judge Julianne Hough bowed to her several times.

"I want to go to the club with you," they each told LaBelle. Carrie and Julianne, me too!

You know I love the AARP crowd, and seeing LaBelle, who endured a painful knee injury during the performance, get up and move is very inspiring. I believe that you can make decisions and take steps to have a very good quality of life whether you’re 25 or 85. I also believe you are as old or as young as you think you are. And judging from LaBelle’s performance, she’s no different today than she was 40 years ago strutting around the stage with Nona Hendryx and Sarah Dash singing “Lady Marmalade.”

Watch LaBelle’s “DWTS” performance below and then see her strut around as a member of Labelle singing “Lady Marmalade.”
