Kelly - R. Kelly Delivers Benedict Cumberbatch's Star Trek Lines In New Skit Song

R. Kelly has turned the tables on Benedict Cumberbatch by singing script lines from Star Trek Into Darkness after the actor recited sultry lyrics by the R&B singer on Tv last week (04Dec13).

The British actor showed off his reading skills on U.S. chat show Jimmy Kimmel Live! by performing a spoken-word version of R. Kelly's new track, Genius.

The video of Cumberbatch's dramatic recital has gone viral and garnered almost two million views on YouTube, and now Kelly has got his own back by turning lines uttered by the actor's character Khan into a new tune.

During an appearance on U.S. show Big Morning Buzz Live on Thursday (12Dec13), R. Kelly used his signature smooth voice to recite Cumberbatch's pivotal line in the Star Trek sequel: "John Harrison was a smoke screen to conceal my true identity. My name is Khan."

After his dramatic song snippet, R. Kelly exclaimed, "I got him back! I got him back!"
