When you think of comedians Amy Poehler and Jack Black, we're sure you don't think of Conway Twitty, but you will now. 

Jack Black, one-half of comedy rock duo Tenacious D, was performing with is band at their third annual Festival Supreme over the weekend and special guest Amy Poehler jumped on stage.  

In true rockstar style, Poehler wore aviator sunglasses with a cigarette in hand and delivered surprising good vocals of Bette Midler's "The Rose". Black joined in with the harmony and it was actually very enjoyable. 

"The Rose" was originally recorded in 1979 for Midler's movie of the same name. It won Midler a Grammy Award and writer Amanda McBroom a Golden Globe. In 1983, Conway Twitty recorded a cover version, which went straight to No. 1 as his 30th No. 1 single. 

Poehler, who is a known Bette Midler fan, has expressed her love for the talented actress. 

"So I first met Bette Midler in my head when I watched the film The Rose in 1979," she said in a speech. "And since then, her and I have been best friends, in my head. In my head, she and I travel together, we have cut an album, and we pranked George Clooney. She's the godmother to the children of mine that she has never met, and once, Bette turned to me in a dream and said, 'Amy, you are the most talented person I've ever met. I hate to say this, this kills me, but you're more talented than me. God bless you and I release you to God,' and then she turned into a million doves and flew away."

Take a look at the funny, yet entertaining performance below!

Lyrics Below

Some say love, it is a river
That drowns the tender reed.
Some say love, it is a razor
That leaves your soul to bleed.
Some say love, it is a hunger,
An endless aching need.
I say love, it is a flower,
And you its only seed.

It's the heart afraid of breaking
That never learns to dance.
It's the dream afraid of waking
That never takes the chance.
It's the one who won't be taken,
Who cannot seem to give,
And the soul afraid of dyin'
That never learns to live.

When the night has been too lonely
And the road has been too long,
And you think that love is only
For the lucky and the strong,
Just remember in the winter
Far beneath the bitter snows
Lies the seed that with the sun's love
In the spring becomes the rose.
