Walshy Fire and Jillionaire of the band Major Lazer perform during Day Two of 2017 Billboard Hot 100 Festival at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater on Aug. 20, 2017 in Wantagh City. 

It was a perfect night for Major Lazer. The mega trio's closing festival performance at the 2017 Billboard Hot 100 Festival was a star-studded spectacle that took place in front of a sold-out crowd.   

The group's fusion of big room and trap with reggae and dancehall had attendees jumping on their feet instantly. At one point, the headlining performance literally turned into a workout session that involved the audience doing jumping jacks to the beat. 

Major Lazer cooled downed the synchronized crowd later on, though, with a cover performance of their new single "Know No Better", courtesy of Camila Cabello -- the first of two special guests.

Up next was Colombian sensation J Balvin who Major Lazer brought out to perform his new hit "Mi Gente". The Hot 100 Stage turned into a full-on party that only became rowdier when the trio transitioned into their own hit, "Lean On".

Cue the pyro, sparklers and CO2 cannons on the track's eruptive drop. And that's a wrap!
