Ariana DeBose Sings From Andrew Garfield’s Lap At 2022 Tony Awards

Ariana DeBose made herself at home in Andrew Garfield's lap as he wrapped his arms around her while laughing hard.

Ariana DeBose hosted the 75th annual Tony Awards and proved she is the best in everything! Apart from hosting, the actress and the singer performed a hilarious audience-celebrating musical dance during the 2022 Tony Awards, interacting with members of the crowd, including Andrew Garfield, who looked introverted from his seat in the audience as DeBose approached him.

DeBose belted Garfield saying, “I am close to you, oh so close to you / I am touching you, there’s not a lot that you can do.” She also poked the Spiderman actor with Garfield laughing hard. She then made herself at home in his lap as he wrapped his arms around her and she continued singing, “I’m sitting on you / ’cause what they say is true / ’cause there is no escaping us in the audience!”

While DeBose and Garfield have not appeared in any movie or series together as of yet, they have at least two big things in common, they were both nominated for Oscars this year, and both have a connection to the Spider-Man universe. Garfield recently reprised his role as Spider-Man aka Peter Parker in Spider-Man: No Way Home, while DeBose is set to appear as Calypso in the upcoming Sony/Marvel film Kraven the Hunter.

Kraven the Hunter will follow Sergei Kravinoff/Kraven (played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson), an enemy of Spider-Man known for his tracking and hunting abilities. Apart from Kraven the Hunter, DeBose is next set to appear in the space thriller I.S.S. alongside Chris Messina and the star-studded spy film Argylle with Henry Cavill, Sam Rockwell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara, John Cena and Samuel L. Jackson.

Ahead of her Tony hosting gig, DeBose shared to People that her mom Gina, partner Sue Makkoo and best friend Jonathan Cobrda would be attending the show to cheer her on. “Miss Gina will be there! My best friend, Jonathan Cobrda, [who was] my prom date, goes to everything,” the actress said. “My partner will be in the house as well. She has designed the costumes for the opening number.”

DeBose added, “She’s a very talented costume designer. I’m excited for her work to be seen on stage.” All three were on hand when DeBose took home the Oscar earlier this year for her performance as Anita in Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story. Her mother was the first person she hugged before taking the stage to accept her award.
