Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt star Tituss Burgess has so many talents we can barely keep track.

Earlier this year, we saw him own the stage as Sebastian the crab in the Hollywood Bowl production of The Little Mermaid, and tonight, we learned that the Emmy-nominated actor has another secret ability. 

"I can finish an entire bottle of wine by myself," Burgess revealed to E!'s Jason Kennedy on the red carpet at the 2016 Emmys

And when Kennedy pressed to find out what Burgess would do if he ran into Beyoncé, who is nominated for Lemonade, on the carpet tonight, he put all of our shower singing totally to shame with a pitch-perfect rendition of "Halo." 

Burgess is of course nominated for best supporting actor for his role as Titus Andromedon in the Netflix series Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, which is also nominated for best comedy tonight. Titus is also a talented actor with pipes to die for, but unlike Burgess, he hasn't quite made it in the entertainment industry yet. 

"I mean I certainly know what it is to experience a version of what he's going through," Burgess says of whether he ever went through the same "frustrated actor" phase that Titus is currently struggling with. "But I think Titus is just frustrated that he's not famous, not so much that he's a frustrated actor. He wants to skip that part." 

This is the first nomination for Burgess, who shares his category with six other actors, including Tony Hale, Matt Walsh, Ty Burrell, Andre Braugher, Louis Anderson, and Keegan-Michael Key
