The 46-year-old entertainer took to the stage wearing a leather corset with a white bandana wrapped around his head, to mimic Pac's dress sense.

St. Louis rapper, Nelly, channeled Pac while he performed a jazz routine to Tupac and Dr.Dre's 1996 hit, “California Love”.

On Monday’s show, Nelly danced with his pro partner Daniella Karagach – who he impressed with back flips and super high lifts.

Nelly said "He was multi-talented," Nelly said of his admiration for Pac in a video that played before the performance.

"We all come with luggage, the good and the bad, but the passion behind his songwriting and ability to touch other people has inspired me."

"I'm actually re-doing my version of the song," Nelly added, as cameras showed him in the studio working on the track."

"The fact that I had a chance to re-do such a great song by such a great person, and the fact that I got the chance to display that on national TV was dope to me."
