During a HeForShe conversation with Lin-Manuel Miranda, Emma Watson was asked by the Hamilton creator and star to beatbox. And she brought this upon herself.

"You're an amazing freestyler," she told Lin-Manuel, who continued "And you're an amazing beatboxer, this is great!"

"Oh yeah, English school kids, that's what we do all the time," Emma added. "Do I cover my mouth... So I don't spit at you?"

Lin, also a self-professed feminist, got the actress to choose whatever beat she was comfortable with and then went straight into a rap that rhymed every two sentences. Emma turned pink even before she started, and said "I'm so embarrassed right now. I'm literally the colour of a tomato!" after the number – isn't she the cutest?

The beatbox dream team, everyone.
