Academy Award-winning actress Ariana DeBose absolutely killed it as this year's 75th Annual Tony Awards host and, on top of living out her own dream, she also lived out the dream of many fans around the world, when she made herself right at home on Andrew Garfield's lap.

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," while 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!"

Garfield fans were losing it over the funny moment as they took to social media with comments like:

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 Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster performing songs from The Music Man while tap-dancing like it was no big deal, which had viewers on Twitter living for the moment.

The 75th Annual Tony Awards aired Sunday, June 12 at 8 p.m. on CBS.
