By now, we're sure you've heard Justin Timberlake's AH-Mazing new single Can't Stop the Feeling off the Trolls soundtrack.
Well, obviously one song isn't enough for JT — he also performed a special duet with costar Anna Kendrick!
Kendrick is totes adorable grooving to JT's beats in the Can't Stop the Feeling music video, but this time around the Pitch Perfect star showed up and showed off her own pipes to help cover Cyndi Lauper's True Colors for the soundtrack!
Ch-ch-check out the most gorgeous trolls you'll ever see performing the duet live at the Cannes Film Festival (below)!
OMG, yes! Cyndi Lauper forever!
The '80s kween and Kinky Boots creator stopped by The Late Late Show Monday night to sing a very special version of her classic hit Girls Just Wanna Have Fun!
But the James Corden duet wasn't just a silly spoof — this parody had a serious message about the gender gap!
Ch-ch-check out the new girl power anthem Girls Just Want Equal Funds (below)!
Trans people just wanna have access to the bathroom. They just wanna.
Cyndi Lauper is without a doubt one of the most influential gay icons of the 1980s, which is why some fans questioned her decision to not cancel her shows in North Carolina despite the state's anti-transgender bathroom laws.
The pink lady already explained that she was going to donate all proceeds from her concerts to local LGBT-friendly charities, and now she's speaking out again!
Cyndi stopped by Late Night with Seth Meyers on Thursday to share her take on the controversy, and she actually made some really good points!
For one thing, she believes it's more supportive to physically be in North Carolina and to rally against resident bigot Gov. Pat McCrory than to voice your concerns from the sidelines.
In fact, the True Colors singer even shared a touching story about how deciding to play shows in Florida when Trayvon Martin was murdered actually helped the community!
We still think musicians cancelling their gigs sends a strong message, but we're glad artists like Cyndi are willing to slum it down South for the betterment of our transgender peers!

Though The Voice is a singing competition show looking to crown a winner, it does an incredible job at paying tribute to several different genres of music.
That's why it's no surprise the coaches took a moment Monday night to honor the late legend Prince and talk about their personal experiences with the icon.
The episode started off with the stage and set lit with purple lights as Adam Levine talked about the Purple Rain singer, saying:
It's been about 4 weeks since North Carolina's Governor Pat McCrory signed the bigoted House Bill 2 into law, taking away LGBT employment discrimination protection and keeping transgender students from using the bathroom associated with the gender they identify as.
Since then, entertainers have been raising their voices to stand up for what's right; Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr, and even Cirque du Soleil have all canceled shows in the state to protest the bill.
Now another act is following in their footsteps — Pearl Jam have decided to cancel their Wednesday night concert in Raleigh, NC.
The band wrote a lengthy, thoughtful statement on the matter, saying:
Meet Dex Lauper, y'all!
He's a rapper, producer, and songwriter, and he just happens to be Cyndi Lauper's son!
Judging by his Instagram feed, he's also very fond of smoking weed.
The 18-year-old, whose full name is Declyn Wallace Thornton, has been working on his album ALGO (As Life Goes On), and can't wait to release it into the world.
Here's a sample he posted online:
They're both doing what they think is right, and we support them either way!
Celebs like Bruce Springsteen, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jimmy Buffett, and Bryan Adams have already publicly condemned the state's government for allowing such a bigoted law to pass, and now two more icons have joined them!
The former Beatle was first to cancel his upcoming show, saying:
