What’s better than watching Lin-Manuel Miranda freestyle about gender equality? Watching him do it over the pretty decent beatboxing of one Emma Watson. The video is a follow-up to an interview Watson conducted with Miranda about his musical Hamilton for #HeForShe Arts Week, which she posted on her Facebook page on Thursday morning.

It’s definitely pretty adorable how Watson gets all red and embarrassed before and after dropping the beat, and it’s definitely hard not to imagine her doing so as Hermione Granger. Watson might be all grown up but she’ll always be stern, studious Hermione to us — and it’s hilarious to think our favorite bookworm might have such a hidden talent. We’re sure Harry and Ron would’ve gotten a kick out of it.

The vid is a delightful mashup for fandom nerds — we’re getting major shades of rap battles from it. Miranda posted the beatboxing vid to his own Facebook page a few hours after, so all in all, it’s been a good day for Harry Potter and Hamilton fans. It doesn’t hurt that Watson and Miranda are just fun to watch together. One fan even hit up the comments section to ask when they’ll be getting their morning show, and we’re kind of wondering that ourselves now. We might even skip the snooze button just to catch such a show.
