If you had any doubts about Tom Holland’s ability to front a new Spider-Man franchise, this clip will put them all aside. The actor took on Zendaya for a special episode of Lip Sync Battle before the MTV Movie & TV Awards, and he absolutely nailed Rihanna’s “Umbrella” with some expert choreography.

His Spider-Man: Homecoming co-star Zendaya, who put on a mighty impressive performance of Bruno Mars’s “24K Magic,” was floored by Holland’s dance moves so much so that she literally fell off her chair and onto the floor. Yeah, he was that good.
The Internet rightfully responded with shock and awe, with one Twitter user even proposing that it might have topped Channing Tatum’s Lip Sync Battle performance from last year that brought out Beyoncé.
