“He thought Sexy Girl in Video From That?”: Hollywood’s Heartthrob Zendaya Received a Surprising Text From Bruno Mars After Her Lip Synch Video

Hollywood's Heartthrob Zendaya Received a Surprising Text From Bruno Mars After Her Lip Synch Video

Zendaya has been the talk of the town for quite a while for all the good reasons. The actor has been a part of some great movies and has made a mark in the industry. From her humble beginnings as a dancer in her early teens to landing her debut role in the famous television sitcom Shake It Up (2010–2013) on Disney Channel, the actor has worked her way up.

Zendaya’s fame and spontaneity on stage ended up in the Dune actor getting a call from none other than Bruno Mars, as the latter came across a lip-sync battle with Zendaya in it dressed up as the singer. Zendaya was performing 24K Gold and slayed her performance and Bruno couldn’t help but appreciate it.

Zendaya’s Impression Won the Internet

It all started in the Lip-Sync Battle where the adorable duo of Zendaya and Tom Holland went head to head against each other. At the beginning round, Tom Holland went on with Ride Wit Me by Nelly, while Zendaya covered Erica Badyu’s Tyrone. The battle went on to the second round where both the actors were to dress up as the artists they were mimicking with dancers and props.

Zendaya went on ahead as she performed on 24k Gold by Bruno Mars. Her impression was outstanding, to say the least with videos of the performance floating all over the internet, getting shared on all social media platforms. The wave of applause reached Bruno Mars himself, and he couldn’t help but get floored by her performance. The singer then didn’t hesitate to call up Zendaya.

The actor shared a note of that beautiful incident on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon as she said,

“they saw the lip sync battle so i i

Zendaya and Tom Holland Gave It Their Best

As Zendaya raised the bar with her performance in the second round of the Lip-Sync Battle, fans definitely felt they had a winner already, but as they say, it’s never really over till the curtains fall. The Spider-Man: No Way Home actor marked his entry into the stage. He began with a little tap dance on Gene Kelley’s Singing In The Rain and soon transitioned into what could only be explained as something the viewers never saw coming.

Tom Holland came in front impersonating Rihanna from her music video Umbrella dressed up similar to what Rihanna wore in the actual video. From his accurate lip-sync to his spot-on dance moves, the actor managed to woo the audience. Even Zendaya couldn’t help but groove to the song and the performance. No prizes for guessing who won the Battle.

The video of Holland’s performance received over 68M views on YouTube.
