During his concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York on Saturday, legendary parody singer Weird Al surprised the crowd by bringing out Lin-Manuel Miranda to sing a bit of the Weird Al classic, "Yoda." Adorableness ensued.

Here's the video of @Lin_Manuel singing Yoda with @alyankovic at @RadioCity!!!

"OK, just Lin-Manuel!" —Weird Al

Lin-Manuel tweeted a sweet story about seeing Weird Al when he was in 9th grade...

......And how he and his friends were convinced that they were responsible for the "Yoda" encore that night.

And now, Lin-Manuel had the second best moment of his life, joining his hero on stage for that very same encore.

"It was, at that point, the best moment of my life. Today was a VERY close second."

This was meant to be all along.
