Remember your middle school talent shows?

After-school activities could be a hit-or-miss, but if a hometown celebrity is in attendance, you better believe every seat will be filled. 

Grammy-nominated R&B singer Miguel proved that stardom has not made him forget where he came from. The "Adorn" crooner headed home to his old stomping grounds, Dana Middle School, in the Los Angeles neighborhood of San Pedro, to treat some lucky students to a surprise performance at their third annual talent show.

Miguel sang two of his hit singles, including "Adorn" and even presented awards to the talent show winners! Honestly, too cute.

Watch what happens when the "Simple Things" singer performs for the middle school students, who went crazy for their hometown hero, having no idea the R&B performer was to participate in their talent show. Disclaimer: You may want to keep the volume down. We learned the hard way. 

Miguel,

We don't blame them for being excited—Miguel is definitely a star in his own right, fresh off the Grammys 2016 stage where he performed "She's Out Of My Life" in honor of the late Michael Jackson, where he was also nominated for two awards.

The newly engaged Miguel is an alumnus of both the middle school and the Boys & Girls Club, the organization that put on the talent show. The 30-year-old artist recorded some of his first songs in the audio recording program at the Boys & Girls Club, so it's easy to see why he would want to give back to the people who gave him the opportunity to record.

Judging by his Instagram post, he seemed genuinely touched to be back at his old middle school. 

Thank you Miguel for participating in the Richard Henry Dana Middle School Talent Show tonight! You made a lifetime of memories for these students! #superstar

And of course, his kind work did not go unnoticed - Los Angeles councilman Joe Buscaino shared photos of Miguel visiting his old school on his Facebook page, writing, "Thank you Miguel for participating in the Richard Henry Dana Middle School Talent Show tonight! You made a lifetime of memories for these students!#superstar.

It's always so refreshing when artists stay true to their roots.
