Lizzo is manifesting her Broadway dreams. The "About Damn Time" singer took to TikTok on Sunday to belt out a standout hit from "Moulin Rouge! The Musical."

The 34-year-old singer belted out the chorus of "El Tango de Roxanne" from the popular musical, which is based on the 2001 film "Moulin Rouge!"

The track has gone viral on TikTok, with users fawning over Broadway star Aaron Tveit's vocals.

Tveit won a Tony Award in 2020 for playing the musical's male lead, Christian.

Lizzo embraced her inner Christian by flexing both her vocal chords and acting chops to put her own spin on the song. She captioned her video, "I think I need to be in a musical now. I've been on broadway tiktok and I can't get this song out of my head."

The official TikTok account for "Moulin Rouge! The Musical" replied to Lizzo's cover in the comments, writing, "Great work, Bohemian! Now do it up the octave." Of course, Lizzo responded with a wide-eyed blushing emoji.

Musical fans also praised her performance in the comments of the video, with many encouraging her to make her Broadway dreams come true.
