Lust machine R. Kelly was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! On Wednesday, to promote his upcoming album, the soon-to-be-a-classic Black Panties. So was British actor, sex symbol and best-Sherlock-ever Benedict Cumberbatch. He was there to plug his voice work as the dragon Smaug in the new Hobbitt film.

Hmm, so how to bring these disparate cultural icons together? Kimmel found a way: getting Mr. Cumberbatch to recite the lyrics to Mr. Kelly’s single, “Genius”.

“You got me like la la la la.” Sheer poetry, Holmes.
