Ariana DeBose gets up close and personal with Andrew Garfield during Tony Awards

Academy Award-winning actress Ariana DeBose killed it as this year's 75th Annual Tony Awards host and, at the same time, lived out the dream of many when she got up close and personal with fellow actor Andrew Garfield.

While singing a song about the moment during a musical when the actors leave the stage and go out into the audience, DeBose slowly made her way over to Garfield as she sang, "I am close to you/ Oh so close to you/ I am touching you/ there's not a lot you can do," as she proceeded to poke Garfield in the face. The Oscar-nominated actor couldn't help but to bashfully laugh and even played along by giving DeBose a big bear hug when she sat down right in his lap singing, "I am sitting on you/ 'Cause what they say is true/ 'Cause there is no escaping us in the audience!"

Meanwhile, DeBose also got a little playful with Samuel L. Jackson as she bravely scratched his face while singing, "It's like Cats, sir. Cats!" And DeBose wasn't the only one who got Jackson to participate in their musical number.

Earlier in the night, Billy Crystal performed a scene from his musical Mr. Saturday Night, during which he got the audience, as well as Jackson and Lin-Manuel Miranda to sing "yiddish scat" with him.

Of course, it's no surprise that the entire night was filled with incredible performances. However, one other memorable number that had viewers buzzing on social media was when Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster performed for The Music Man and tap danced like it was no big deal, which had viewers on Twitter living for the moment.
