Vin Diesel Sings Sam Smith’s “Stay” Rather Nicely: Watch

Regardless of what possessed Hollywood musclehead Vin Diesel to croon Rihanna‘s “Stay” and dance all seductive-like in front of a camera to Katy Perry‘s “Dark Horse” and Beyonce‘s “Drunk In Love” earlier this year, the Guardians Of The Galaxy actor now has quite the reputation for being up on all things pop music. Hence him being asked during an interview with London’s Capital FM to sing Sam Smith‘s “Stay With Me” on the spot.

Granted, the interviewer did give him a laptop with the song’s lyrics. And despite Diesel’s faux protests at first of not being up on the song, he appeared to catch on pretty quick once it began playing. All in all, Vin was a great sport, and, you know, actually didn’t sound too shabby. What a Renaissance Man.

How do you think Vin did while hamming it up and singing along to “Stay With Me” in the clip above?
