It’s good to have friends who are into music.
During the second period of Emily in Paris‘third season, Lily Collins took the stage for a performance of the classic 1966 song “Alfie”—in honor of boyfriend Alfie (Lucien Laviscount), of course—much to the surprise of her friends, including her singer BFF Mindy (Ashley Park).
As it turns out, Lily enlisted Ashley’s help when it came time to prepare for the big moment and sent her a bunch of different demos, as Lily exclusively explained to E! News, “I went to the bathroom and I was like, ‘I’m just going to record five different ways.'”
Ashley, who started in Broadway musical productions such as The King and I and Girlscould not believe his ears.
“He sent me three different versions,” Ashley said. “I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is my new ringtone.'”
Lily explained that Ashley told her to “just live and be me” before the show, which eventually included Mindy backing Emily up on the keyboard.
