Dressed in all white, and backed by a four-part band of musicians playing guitars, drums, tambourines and more, Childish Gambino delivered a pitch-perfect rendition of his Awaken, My Love! cut "Terrified" with wild wails and falsetto notes fit for a sex symbol. He also invited to the stage his 10-year-old co-star JD McCrary, who will be playing Young Simba (to Gambino's Adult Simba) in the upcoming live adaptation of The Lion King. Here's how Twitter went nuts.
