UK talk show host Jonathan Ross has a knack for getting celebrities to show off their special skills.
And when it came to America's Sweetheart Sandra Bullock, Ross got her to offer a "Rapper's Delight."
The actress admitted on Ross' show that she initially learned the lyrics to the hip-hop classic to impress a guy in high school.

Ross, of course, wanted her to prove how much she remembered, and gave the "Gravity" star the option to rhyme a capella.
Sandy B. - which should be her rap name, obviously - wouldn't stand for it.
"If I'm going to humiliate myself, I need some beats," she joked. "Give me some beats, yo!"
Ross also got her to do this with Tom Hanks in an homage to "Big":
