If you watched the Grammys on Sunday then you noticed a kid hitting the stage with Childish Gambino during his performance of “Terrified.” And that kid is J.D. McCrary aka young Simba in the remake of the Lion King! And holy smokes, can he sing.
Towards the end of Gambino’s performance, J.D. appeared on the stage (we didn’t expect him) and killed it with some major vocals! We’re sure everyone was as much in awe as we were. And though, we didn’t know who he was then, we surely are excited to know that he’ll be part of the Lion King remake!
Watch a clip of J.D.’s appearance on the Grammys’ stage below and tell us if you’re as excited as us to watch the new Lion King.
