Penn Badgley is Gossip Girl no more!
The former CW star took to the NYC stage at The Village Underground for open mic night and turned up the heat with his sexy rendition of D’Angelo’s Brown Sugar! He even had The Twinship singing backup!

Ch-ch-check out Penn’s soulful performance …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
