Benedict Cumberbatch Gave A Dramatic Reading Of R. Kelly Lyrics On ‘Kimmel’ And It Was Spectacular

By: 12.05.13

Jimmy Kimmel had an eclectic combination of guests on his show last night — to say the least — with Benedict Cumberbatch and R. Kelly both scheduled to appear. And he took full advantage.

Kimmel organized something extra special to capitalize on the very different methods his guests use to get sex appeal oozing from their respective pores (or so I’m told). He had Cumberbatch give a dramatic reading of the extra spicy lyrics from R. Kelly’s song “Genius.” “Genius” is also a good name for this bit, because it was spectacular.
