The 'Grey's Anatomy' star re-enacted a scene from her 2008 romantic comedy at an Emmy's afterparty, the party's DJ shared on Instagram
In a post shared to Instagram on Tuesday by DJ Benjamin Walker, Heigl, 45, can be seen dancing to the hit Elton John song "Benny and the Jets" in the bright red strapless Reem Acra gown she wore to the event — just like her character Jane did in the iconic rom-com.
Walker was well aware he was helping to create a nostalgic moment.
"I love a good rom-com so when i saw @katherineheigl , I knew IMMEDIATELY there was one song to end the night and one song only…. #IYKYK #27dresses," he wrote in the caption of a carousel of photos and video from the party.
In the 27 Dresses scene from 2008, Jane Nichols and her eventual love interest Kevin Doyle (James Marsden) bond over their love of "Benny and the Jets" at a bar, laughing about the fact that Jane once misheard the lyrics "she's got electric boots" as "she's got electric boobs."
Eventually, the couple dances so shamelessly to the song that they attract the attention of every bar patron. They shut down the bar much like Heigl shut down the party.
The film's title comes from the fact that Jane had been a bridesmaid in 27 weddings and had 27 hideous dresses to prove it. She's the epitome of the phrase "always a bridesmaid, never a bride," and Kevin wants to write a story about her... but things get complicated when they fall in love.
Heigl attended Monday's Emmys ceremony for the first time since 2014 to present the Emmy for outstanding supporting actor in a limited or anthology series or movie with some of the other original cast members of Grey's Anatomy: Ellen Pompeo, James Pickens Jr., Chandra Wilson and Justin Chambers.
While speaking with PEOPLE on the Emmys red carpet before the show, Heigl called the cast reunion an "odd nostalgic walk down memory lane."
