Rising bedroom pop star Clairo is currently on tour supporting Khalid. Khalid and his crew gave her a special, and somewhat creepy, surprise for her 21st birthday. Khalid and the rest of his crew dressed up in giant Sesame Street character costumes for the pop singer’s special birthday.

Khalid posted a video to Twitter of the surprise. Khalid and his friends, in full costume, sat on chairs in Clairo’s dressing room. When the newly 21-year-old walked in, she fell to the ground with laughter. “You’re scary,” Clairo said as Elmo, aka Khalid, walked over to give her a hug. “Happy early birthday,” Khalid wrote as the caption to the video.

“Khalid really just came into my dressing room as Elmo for my birthday,” Clairo wrote in her own photo.

On top of dressing up as a character out of a little kid’s TV show, Khalid gave the 21-year-old a gift that was a little more adult.

Khalid and his friends walked out on stage as Clairo performed later on in the night. Clairo took a pause in the middle of her song to laugh but was able to finish performing alongside the Sesame Street characters with a little help from Khalid.

Clairo recently dropped her debut album, Immunity. The 11 track album is filled with sweet pop anthems and shimmery beats. Clairo sings of friendship, heartbreak, and her first girl crush on the album produced by Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij.
