2016 Emmy Awards: The Kids from ‘Stranger Things’ Have Sang ‘Uptown Funk’ During the Pre-Show

at 9:41 pm | By

Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, and Millie Bobby Brown brought down the house at the 2016 Emmy Awards.

First, the Stranger Things castmates arrived on the red carpet looking like small adults in attire that your 12-year-old self would not even conceive of wearing because it’s just so cool. McLaughlin (M) nailed his entire ensemble with a patterned suit jacket and Brown (R) accessorized her Red Valentino(!) gown with a clutch embroidered with her first name so that you never forget that she’s here to stay.

Though it was not broadcast, the Stranger Things junior castmates performed Bruno Mars‘ “Uptown Funk” for the audience members in the Microsoft Theater during the pre-show. Attendees paid their social media dues accordingly:

Matarazzo documented the aftermath backstage:
