Martin added some Latin dance grooves to the Billboard Music Awards by performing the 2014 FIFA World Cup theme song to the Las Vegas crowd. Looking stylish in all black amongst his team of white-clad dancers, Martin tore through the soccer-themed banger, shouting out its stadium-worthy cries of ole! In between, the ageless singer showed off some dance moves of his own, leaving little doubt that he’s still in top form.

Previously, the Puerto Rican singer broke out the uplifting anthem at this year's Billboard Latin Music Awards.

This isn't the first time Martin has soundtracked the World Cup. His song for the 1998 competition, "La Copa de La Vida" (The Cup of Life)," propelled him into the global spotlight, taking off after he performed it on the Grammys. It charted at No. 2 on Hot Latin Songs, and went to No. 45 on the Billboard Hot 100.
