Country superstar Carrie Underwood is a true ’80s baby, and of course that means she’s also a big fan of Karate Kid. The popular ’80s karate movie franchise has now been spun off into a Netflix series called Cobra Kai, and in the show’s new season, Underwood shows off her black belt in belting it out.

Appearing on season four of the show starring Ralph Macchio and William Zabka, Underwood took the stage to give an onscreen hiiii-yah!, performing a pure-’80s cover of Survivor’s “Moment of Truth.” Check it out below:

Wearing a red leather miniskirt and matching jacket, Underwood shows up at the 51st All Valley Karate Championship, where students of the original series are competing. In between flying kicks, blocked punches and karate chops, her powerful voice easily soars over synthesizers and beefy drums.

Underwood took to social media to celebrate the appearance, showing off her new martial arts friends.

Meanwhile, it seems like Underwood’s love of Cobra Kai is genuine, since she posted about watching the series with a nice glass of bubbly a few days earlier. Check out the one-of-a-kind gift she got from the cast.

“Tonight’s plans involve champagne and @cobrakaiseries !” she wrote. “I’m pretty sure @william_zabka stole this from wardrobe to give to me, but it’s being put to good use! 🐍 🐍🐍 🦅 🦅🦅 🥋 🥋🥋🥂🥂 🥂 cheers, everyone!”

Carrie Underwood recently hit Number One with Jason Aldean on their broken hearted power duet, “If I Didn’t Love You,” and earlier this holiday season released the fun loving “Stretchy Pants” comedy song.
