Amy Poehler revealed that in addition to being a talented actor, comedian and author, she’s also a pretty decent singer. At Tenacious D’s third annual Festival Supreme in Los Angeles Saturday, the Parks and Recreation star joined Jack Black for a heartfelt rendition of Bette Midler’s classic song, “The Rose.”

It wasn’t a surprising song choice, since Poehler has revealed that she’s a huge Bette Midler fan. “So I first met Bette Midler in my head when I watched the film The Rose in 1979,” Poehler told Vulture last year. “And since then, her and I have been best friends, in my head. In my head, she and I travel together, we have cut an album, and we pranked George Clooney.”

Decked out in a Janis Joplin-inspired get-up, Poehler definitely did the song justice, so maybe this will bring her one step closer to a best friendship with Midler. To be fair, though, we’d think Poehler did an incredible job if all she did was stand onstage and giggle.
