In case you didn't know: Rachel Bilson can sing!

Entertainment Tonight snagged a clip from Nashville’s upcoming episode in which the O.C. alum shows off her pipes during a local karaoke night—and we must say, we’re impressed by what we heard.

In Thursday’s episode, Bilson’s character is encouraged to take the stage, and after reluctantly agreeing, she sings a charming rendition of Ray Charles’s “You Don’t Know Me.”

Girl can carry a tune!

We’ve been seeking spoilers about the actress’s guest arc since she posted a cute reunion pic with her current and former co-star, Chris Carmack—the pair shared a set on The O.C.’s first season as well as Nashville’s fifth.

Bilson, 35, teased the possibility of her character singing on the show to ET in July, telling the source, “My character might get drunk enough to [sing]. That might happen.”

Encore, Rachel! Watch it above.

P.S.: Nashville execs, if you’re listening, next time Bilson’s character gets drunk, how about belting The O.C.’s theme song? "CALIFORNIAAAAA!"


[MUSIC] I came to Africa on behalf of In Style, as a correspondent to check out the diamond industry, and see how it has influenced and affected the region that they're in. [MUSIC] I had the opportunity to visit Swalu, and they had these really amazing things going on, like the cheetah conservation, which, there may be only 2000 left in the world. I visited the mine. It was a huge pit, which was surprising to me. I went to Swanning mine hospital, which is fully funded by Deb Swano, which is a partnership between De Beers and the Botswanan government. I went to Acacia Primary School. Children of my employees can go to this school for free. At the feeding scheme, I helped distribute food to the mothers and their children. I was fortunate enough to meet a couple of the students supported by the Diamond Powerman fund. I was very impressed with them, and I wouldn't be surprised if they changed the world, or at least Africa, some day.
