Dionne Warwick had the perfect reaction after being mistaken for Gladys Knight on TV at Wednesday night’s US Open.

ESPN commentators Mary Carrillo and Chanda Rubin mistook the legendary musician for Knight, 78, when the camera panned to Warwick as Serena Williams faced off against Annette Kontavate on the tennis court.

“We got more stars,” Rubin said. When the “Gladys Night” cameras caught Warwick, Carrillo said, and Rubin agreed.

Warwick, 81, teased the mistake on Twitter Thursday morning.

“Young gravy? Like food??????????” Warwick wrote. After misspelling the artist’s stage name, she posted the following tweet.
