Julia Louis-Dreyfus celebrated her last day of chemotherapy Thursday with the help of her sons, Michael Jackson, and some enthusiastic lip-syncing.

"My beauty boys @henryhallmusic @charlie_hall made this for me today, my last day of chemotherapy," the 56-year-old Veep wrote on Instagram. "Pretty swell, right? Ain't they sweet?"

We'd say! The caption accompanied a video of Julia's two boys Henry, 25, and Charlie, 20, dancing and lip-syncing enthusiastically to MJ's 1982 hit Beat It.

Dreyfus announced she had breast cancer on Instagram in September. "1 in 8 women get breast cancer. Today, I'm the one," she wrote. "The good news is that I have the most glorious group of supportive and caring family and friends, and fantastic insurance through my union. The bad news is that not all women are so lucky, so let's fight all cancers and make universal health care a reality."

In the months that followed, she shared updates on her progress, as well as support she was getting from her family and friends.

Music seems to be a common thread among them, with Veep co-stars Timothy Simons and Tony Hale lip-syncing to Katy Perry's Roar in one video, while Anna Chlumsky, Clea DuVall and Gary Cole rewrote the lyrics to Queen's We Are The Champions in another.

Production on Veep's seventh season was postponed in November until Dreyfus is ready to return. The actress has won six Emmys for her portrayal of bumbling vice president Selina Meyer. 

After a challenging 2017, the actress didn't mince words when it came to bidding the year adieu. 


Goodbye 2017. Go fuck yourself. #happynewyear
