On last night's American IdolJennifer Lopez shook off the judges' table to hit the stage and perform her new single with French Montana, "I Luh Ya Papi." 

But unlike her script-flipping video for "I Luh Ya Papi"—which brilliantly features J.Lo objectifying a sea of shirtless men—Lopez brought out three vocal powerhouses from American Idol history to help her with the track. 

Longtime fan favorite Allison Iraheta, season 11 runner-up Jessica Sanchez and season 10 standout Pia Toscano all joined J.Lo for a goofy, beautifully harmonious intro to her live performance. 

The scene opened with J.Lo, Iraheta, Sanchez and Toscano chatting on the stoop of a faux-Bronx apartment, all three sharing their thoughts on which guy from this season is the sexiest. 

From there, Lopez leads them in a flawless four-part a cappella run which eventually segues into her regular (but still astounding) on stage performance. Watch it below.  While Sanchez is still in the spotlight a bit (her debut album is in the works now), it was great seeing the return of the under-appreciated Toscano and the reliably brilliant Iraheta. It might be a lot to wish for an in-studio collabo between all four, but we can at least hope two of these four women might get together to put something hot on wax in the future.
