On Thursday, Piers Morgan used his "Only in America" segment to slide on his dancing shoes and pay tribute to Donna Summer.
As the singer passed away at the age of 63, Morgan concluded her legacy is undeniable:
"She was quite simply...the queen of disco," declared the host. "A young woman from Boston with an amazingly powerful voice, but more than that, the power to make people dance."
With a playlist that eclipsed nearly four decades, Summer's collection sent Morgan on a trip down musical memory lane:
"'Love to Love You, Baby,' 'I Feel Love,' 'Hot stuff,' 'On the Radio,' 'She Works Hard For the Money,' all classics in their own lifetime."
Thanks to remarkable staying power and infectious lyrics, the "Queen of Disco" proved timeless:
"Donna Summer straddled generations, whether they listened to her sing on the 8-track 40 years ago or an iPod today," assessed the "Piers Morgan Tonight" host. "One thing was always the constant. Donna Summer made you get up on your feet and party."
As Morgan's words faded into Summer's sounds, he allowed for a final encore performance:
"I'd like to leave you tonight with my own favorite of so many great songs. 'Last Dance.'"
