Grace VanderWaal just proved herself to be the biggest “New Girl” fan, right in front of Zooey Deschanel.
Deschanel, who starred on the hit sitcom as Jess Day for all seven seasons, joined Billboard for its video series “Quizzed” to surprise the “I Don’t Like You” singer, 15, and to test her knowledge of “New Girl”.
After the actress, 39, crashed VanderWaal’s soundcheck at the El Rey Theater in Los Angeles, Deschanel quizzed VanderWaal and gifted some iconic “New Girl” props like Jess’ silver hat from when she got fired, her sunglasses and has her knitting project on the table. Deschanel even pulled out a travel-size “feeling stick” for VanderWaal.
To finish off the episode, the pair joined together for an epic rendition of the series’ theme song, which was orginally sung by Deschanel.
VanderWaal is currently wrapping up her U.S. tour in support of her latest single, “Ur So Beautiful”.
