Darren Criss Reacts to Beyonce Singing the Song He Asked to Perform on 'Disney Family Singalong'

Darren Criss performed the song “I Wan’na Be Like You” from The Jungle Book during the Disney Family Singalong, but he originally asked to do a different song.

The 33-year-old Emmy-winning actor asked to sing “When You Wish Upon a Star” from Pinocchio, but was told that it was “impossible” to get the rights to the song.

Then, when Darren was watching the special, he discovered that Beyonce actually performed the song!

“Fun fact: asked if I could do When You Wish Upon A Star. They said ‘that’s impossible to get cleared’ which was either the nicest way to tell me ‘please don’t’ or it was actually true and it’s just nothing is impossible if Beyonce wants to do it,” Darren tweeted. “Either way thank GAWD it was her. My eyes were melting. So beautiful.”
