We’ve heard rumors of Sarah Paulson‘s killer karaoke skills, but now we get to see her in action. The Emmy winner of The People vs. O.J. Simpson grabbed the mic from Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show and perfectly rapped along to “Shoop” by Salt-N-Pepa.

“You’re not gonna make me do this right now,” she told Fallon when he brought it up. But when The Roots started playing back-up, the rhythm took over.

Paulson previously told EW that singing karaoke style in a private room “is the only way I can do it because I’m a really bad singer. My sister’s a big karaoke person, and she’s never been able to get me to do it.” Bobby Cannavale, who co-starred with Paulson in Cupid, added, “Sarah does a mean Salt-N-Pepa, though. You got to hear her do her Salt-N-Pepa.”

And now we have. Watch her perform in the video below.
