Benedict Cumberbatch is a jack-of-all-trades: superhero (Doctor Strange), space villain (Star Trek Into Darkness), international rogue (The Fifth Estate) and, of course, the greatest private investigator of all time (Sherlock).

But did you know he's also kind of a singer?

The actor hopped onstage Wednesday night, on the third night of Pink Floyd leader David Gilmour's five-night stand at London's Royal Albert Hall, for a run through the 1979 Floyd classic "Comfortably Numb."  

It's not the first time Gilmour has invited a guest vocalist up to help him out with the parts originally sung by departed Floyd bassist-singer Roger Waters. And Cumberbatch appeared to hold his own.
