Jason Sudeikis and his old Saturday Night Live cast mate Will Forte were all set for a reunion duet at a Kansas City benefit concert over the weekend when one of Sudeikis’ more recent costars arrived to, musically at least, save the day: Ted Lasso‘s Hannah Waddingham.
Appearing at Steps of Faith’s Thundergong!, an annual Kansas City benefit event to raise funds for amputees, host Sudeikis began to sing A Star is Born‘s “Shallow” with special guest Forte when Waddingham muscled her way into the duet and stole the show.

Waddingham’s vocal chops might have surprised folks who only know the actress from her Emmy-winning turn as Rebecca Welton on Ted Lasso. In truth, she’s been nominated for three Olivier Awards for her West End musical performances in Spamalot, A Little Night Music and Kiss Me, Kate.
Now in its seventh year, Thundergong! 2023 raised more than $800,000 for Steps of Faith, according to Kansas City’s KMBC. In its seven-year history, the variety-show event has raised more than $2 million.
Check out the performance of “Shallow” above.
