When it comes to iconic hit singles from the early 2000s - a few come to mind, including Sisqo's turn-of-the-century hit "The Thong Song." On Monday night (Feb. 15), the ode to booties and underwear that show them off returned to the mainstage on Jimmy Kimmel Live! with Sisqo teamed up with Panic! at the Disco for a new take on his song. And, you guessed it right, they performed it as Panic! at the Sisqo.

As a part of Kimmel's "Mashup Monday" series, Brandon Urie and co. took the stage with Sisqo and a crew of backup dancers for a fresh take on "The Thong Song." Urie took over the vast majority of the vocal duties, singing the song's unforgettable opening verse and chorus like a true #millennial.

Of course, Panic! at the Sisqo could not be Panic! at the Sisqo without the man himself. Halfway through the first chorus, Sisqo stormed onto the stage with a crew of cartwheeling men and sang some truly impressive high notes - proving that 16 years has not made him any less of a true showman.

The energy on stage was irresistible, as Urie jumped onto some rafters to belt out the chorus' underlying raps and Sisqo danced around the stage, giving "The Thong Song" its 2016 due.

Panic! at the Sisqo's performance was the latest installation of Kimmel's "Mashup Monday" series, which he whips out every so often. Other hybrid performances have included REO Speeddragon (REO Speedwagon, Imagine Dragons), Fall Out Boyz II Men (Fall Out Boy, Boyz II Men), Joss Stone Temple Pilots (Joss Stone, Stone Temple Pilots) and more.
