Awards season is well over and while we thought that's the last we heard of La La Land (and the infamous Best Picture mishap), Ansel Elgort has given us another reason to revisit the soundtrack. The Fault In Our Stars actor posted an Instagram video where he did a rendition of the movie's Oscar-winning song.

We must say, he gives Ryan Gosling a run for his money.

Ansel's got the whole brooding crooner thing down, effortlessly belting out the song with his smooth, jazzy voice. In fact, we think his voice suits Sebastian more than Ryan Gosling's (#sorrynotsorry). This is not the first time Ansel's dabbled in singing; just last month, he released the music video for Thief, in which he is shirtless and dancing – you're welcome. We also have to talk about the pair of starcrossed lovers printed on the bowling shirt Ansel is wearing in his La La Land cover; he's literally wearing a (City of) stars!

Well played, Ansel, well played.
