Benedict Cumberbatch sort of collaborates with R. Kelly

- December 5th, 2013

Benedict Cumberbatch can make anything sound proper, even some of R. Kelly’s verses.

While on Jimmy Kimmel to promote The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Wednesday night, Cumberbatch took a couple of minutes to read the lyrics of R. Kelly’s newest song, Genius.

Including lines like, ‘you got me like la la-la la,’ and ‘I’ll be good to you, while making love to you, promise,’ Cumberbatch had fans going crazy.

Kimmel said the idea for the skit was to bring his two eclectic guests closer together and unite them. Apparently, new-age R&B lyrics read by a British man was just the way to do it.

The love for Cumberbatch didn’t end there, either. When Kimmel brought him back on stage for the interview portion of his visit, the fan reaction was comparable to “Justin Bieber levels.”

Cumberbatch’s newest movie and the latest Hobbit installment is in theaters December 13th.
