The usually reserved Fox News host, Bret Baier crushed it on stage with the Rascal Flatts at the country music band’s concert in Bristow, Va., over the weekend.
Baier posted images of himself on Instagram, showing photos of himself performing with Rascal Flatts after they asked him to come up on the stage.
Fox News reported on Baier’s performance – Baier told Fox News’ Guy Benson how “Rapper’s Delight” has been his “go-to” song since high school, and how Rascal Flatts had seen him perform the song at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in 2017.
The “Special Report” anchor said he and his wife were invited to come backstage at the Virginia concert, where he jokingly told Rascal Flatts bassist Jay DeMarcus midshow, “If you ever need anyone with Rapper’s Delight,’ I’ve got you covered.”
Here’s a video of Bair performing.

This wasn’t the first time Baier’s performance of the iconic 1979 hit went viral. At the “Special Report” holiday party in 2018, the Fox News anchor performed it alongside the actual Sugarhill Gang while sporting suit festooned with Christmas trees.
