Amy Poehler showed off some impressive vocal chops at Tenacious D’s third annual Festival Supreme in Los Angeles Saturday, performing a duet of Bette Midler‘s “The Rose” with Jack Black.

Poehler, clad in an ensemble reminiscent of Janis Joplin, kept her sunglasses on as she dove into “The Rose.” Towards the end of the song, actor and Tenacious D frontman Black joined her on the chorus.

Parks & Recreation star Poehler has made no secret of her love of Midler – or The Rose. Last year, she admitted that she pretended that she was best friends with the iconic singer after seeing the classic film.

“So I first met Bette Midler in my head when I watched the film The Rose in 1979,” Poehler told Vulture. “And since then, her and I have been best friends, in my head. In my head, she and I travel together, we have cut an album, and we pranked George Clooney.”

Poehler, who last appeared in this summer’s hit Netflix series, Wet Hot American Summer: First Day at Camp, will next be seen on the big screen opposite Tina Fey in Sisters this coming December. As for Black, he stars in Goosebumps, which hits theaters Friday.
