Watch Amy Poehler Sing Bette Midler's "The Rose" with Jack Black

Amy loves her some Bette!

Joyce Eng

Some say love... is Amy Poehler belting out Bette Midler.

In a performance that would put many Lip Sync Battle champs to shame, the Saturday Night Live alum surprised fans at Tenacious D's third annual Festival Supreme Saturday to duet with Jack Black on Midler's classic "The Rose."

Poehler's rock star look? Super bohemian, complete with sunglasses, a fur vest and a cigarette, natch.

The actress appeared during the comedy portion of the show, but make no mistake, this was no send-up. Poehler's love for Midler is for real and well documented.

"So I first met Bette Midler in my head when I watched the film The Rose in 1979. And since then, her and I have been best friends, in my head," she told Vulture last year. "In my head, she and I travel together, we have cut an album, and we pranked George Clooney. She's the godmother to the children of mine that she has never met, and once, Bette turned to me in a dream and said, 'Amy, you are the most talented person I've ever met. I hate to say this, this kills me, but you're more talented than me. God bless you and I release you to God,' and then she turned into a million doves and flew away."
