Evan Peters and Frances Conroy singing Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers' Islands In the Stream? Poetic cinema.
At long last, American Horror Story: Double Feature is back on our TV screens – and so is Evan Peters, who returns to the series after taking a deserved break from the show.
AHS: Double Feature kicked off with a double episode offering last night (Aug 25) and it's already promising an exciting (and terrifying!) storyline. The show is absolutely packed with brilliant performances from the cast, particularly from newcomer Macaulay Culkin.
But in the first episode, there's one specific moment that fans can't stop talking about: Evan Peters singing Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers' banger 'Islands In the Stream', with Frances Conroy at karaoke. Yes, really. And yes, it was amazing.
Evan Peters plays Austin Sommers in AHS: Double Feature. Austin is a seasonal resident of Provincetown, a writer, a friend/associate of Belle Noir (played by Conroy) and, as we soon learn, a pretty shady yet hilarious character.
Austin is introduced around 25 minutes into the first episode in a scene that sees Finn Wittrock's Harry Gardner, a newcomer to the community, hit the local bar. As the piano starts playing, we see two people pick up a pair of microphones before the camera then pans out to reveal Austin and Belle Noir belting out the iconic country duet to a room full of people.
It's officially the second best Evan Peters bar scene of 2021. (If you watched Mare Of Easttown, you'll know.)

Of course, this is not the first time Evan has given us a musical number in American Horror Story. Fans will remember when he performed Nirvana's 'Come As You Are' as Jimmy Darling in Freak Show.
But honestly? Evan Peters and Frances Conroy giving us their best Kenny and Dolly harmonies at karaoke? Talented, brilliant, incredible, amazing, show stopping, spectacular.
