It's not everyday we get to hear Benedict Cumberbatch do a live-reading of one of R. Kelly's hyper-sexual songs and recite the words, "I can feel your body flowers."

The British actor's hilarious segment on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night might have gotten some of his groupies, aptly named "Cumberbitches," excited. He read lyrics to Kelly's "Genius" track and made a number of "promises" about his bedroom behavior.

Hmm, though hearing all these sexy Kelly lyrics reminds us of his sketchy past.
