    The series finale of Downton Abbey recently aired, and Jimmy Kimmel asked Legend to perform the lyric-less theme song of the show.

    John rose to the occasion and added his own lyrics, lightly poking fun at how overwhelmingly white the cast was...

    ...like, there was no color on the show save for the elaborate gowns some of the characters wore.

    Then he honed in on the formidable and shady Dowager Countess of Grantham...

    ...and suggested she was due for a ~romp~ in the sheets.

    And did we mention the stellar vocals he delivered?
