Brilliant human Anna Kendrick took the stage early Sunday night (Jan. 26) to present the Best New Artist award with Pharrell Williams (spoiler alert: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis won). The "Pitch Perfect" actress made a hilariously on-point joke about having intended to perform "Drunk in Love" with Pharrell, but unfortunately for her and everyone everywhere, she was too sick to rehearse and thus the academy had to scramble to find an adequate replacement.
Beyonce and Jay Z did okay, all things considered ... but here's what it would have looked like had Kendrick and Williams performed the sexy number:
All jokes aside, Kendrick actually got to meet Beyonce on Sunday and she freaked out.
Guys, it happened. I met Beyonce. And she is an angel. And I am not worthy. And I will never stop shaking. #PatheticFanGirlOfTheYear
