And now, more magic from our generation's greatest interpreter of popular song.

On UK radio station Capital FM this week, Vin Diesel gave a heartfelt rendition of Sam Smith's hit "Stay With Me," a song he claimed, unbelievably, to be approaching for the very first time.

Like Sinatra singing Porter, Warwick singing Bacharach, or Nilsson singing Newman, Diesel brings unparalleled nuance and emotional depth to the material, hugging the melody's curves, gently plunging its depths and scaling its peaks.

It's a performance topped in recent memory only by Diesel himself, whose transcendent rendition of Rihanna's "Stay" last year shattered preconceived notions about what pop singing—nay, the human voice itself—is capable of doing.
