The routine featured audio from news reports broadcasted on September 11, 2001, along with victims' voice mails left for loved ones and statements from then-President George W. Bush. Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the U.S.A." was the musical score.

But some weren't thrilled:

The cheerleading coach Lauren Sheffield told BuzzFeed News the squad has performed a 9/11 tribute routine ever since 2002.

“We do this because we believe it is very important to honor and remember the first responders, those who gave their lives, and those who still mourn the hole left by lost loved ones,” Sheffield said.

Tell us in the comments below what you think of the performance that's capturing so much attention this weekend.
