Just when you thought that Meryl Streep’s standing ovation was going to be the best thing to happen at the 2017 Oscars, Ryan Gosling and Justin Timberlake blessed us with another beautiful moment. The A-list stars, who got their start together as young performers in the Mickey Mouse Club, reunited on Sunday night, bringing sexy back to the Academy Awards.

Timberlake opened the show with his Oscar-nominated song, “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” dancing through the audience. Along the way, he passed by his old friend and gave him a little squeeze on the shoulder.

After finishing up his performance, JT made his way back to his fellow Mouseketeer to catch up, perhaps wishing him luck on his nomination. Gosling snagged one of La La Land’s record-tying 14 nominations for Best Actor, while Timberlake himself is up for a musical nod.

As for the blonde date standing with Gosling, that’s his sister Mandi Gosling, who filled in for Eva Mendes at the Oscars. And yes, she did get to witness this hip-shaking first-hand.
