Lin-Manuel Miranda keeps on finding ways to make us love him even more. 

The Hamilton star, who happens to have been a Weird Al Yankovic fan since high school, popped onstage for the parody artist’s concert Saturday night at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. He helped Weird Al sing the chorus to “Yoda,” a Star Wars twist on The Kinks’ “Lola.” After Weird Al gets the audience to sing a bit, that’s when Miranda appears at about 2:35.

And of course no collaboration like this goes without a great selfie. That night Miranda tweeted about seeing Weird Al perform “Yoda” when he was just a teen along with a pic with the hilarious artist.

So does this mean Weird Al will have a surprise role in Hamilton once it premieres in Chicago? We can only hope.
