What is the Grace Kelly challenge on TikTok?

The challenge involves TikTok users posting their rendition of the famous lines from Mika’s 2007 song - called Grace Kelly.

The trend sees users perform the harmonies from the song.

In different pitches, they sing the iconic chorus of the song with the lyrics - I could be brown, I could be blue, I could be violet sky, I could be hurtful, I could be purple, I could be anything you like.

The TikTokers then have their voices, in different pitches, overlapping as they move to even higher tones.

They go from the lowest note to the slightly less low part, then move to the high note, until they finally try to hit the extremely high vocal note.

In the end, they finally try to reach the famous high note Mika used in the tune.

Who has done the Grace Kelly challenge on TikTok?

Ryan Reynolds, 44, and Will Ferrell, 54, who have been working together on the Christmas musical film Spirited, hopped on the Grace Kelly challenge bandwagon.

At first, it seems like Ryan is the only one doing the challenge.

But as he tries to hit all the notes correctly, Will suddenly enters the picture from the right and hilariously sings the high note.

Will goes on to add more of his own harmonies as he hits higher notes while Ryan pretends to be annoyed.

In the caption, Ryan said: “Late to the Grace Kelly Tik Tok trend but WAY early for our Christmas movie musical.”

Who is Grace Kelly?

Mika’s song is titled after the Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly.

Grace was an American film actress.

She starred in several big films in the early to mid-1950s before becoming the Princess of Monaco by marrying Prince Rainier III in April 1956.

The actress gained stardom from her performance in John Ford’s romance Mogambo, for which she was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.

The star died in Monaco at the age of 52 from injuries sustained in a car crash the previous day.

She is listed 13th among the American Film Institute’s 25 Greatest Female Stars of Classical Hollywood Cinema.

Her son, Prince Albert, helped establish the Princess Grace Awards in 1984 to recognize emerging performers in film, theatre, and dance.

Award-winning actors Ryan Reynolds and Will Ferrell decided they too wanted to join in on the “Grace Kelly” challenge, with Ryan sharing their rendition across his various social media platforms.

The video starts off innocently enough, with just Ryan singing the first part of “Grace Kelly.” However, as the Deadpool star advances through the song and attempts to hit the high notes, he gets a little help from his longtime friend, Will.

Se ha provato perfino Ryan Reynolds a cantare Grace Kelly di Mika, non potete esimervi dal farlo anche voi.

Si potrebbe creare un account social e chiamarlo “Ryan Reynolds che fa cose”, giusto per centralizzare ogni buffoneria in cui l’arguto attore si esibisce su Twitter, Instagram o, meglio, Tik Tok. Anzi, propabilmente già esiste un profilo del genere creato da uno dei suoi innumerevoli fan. Se così fosse, ci sarebbe da aggiungere l’ultimo video postato da Reynolds che è, come sempre, piuttosto esilarante. La star di Deadpool ha accettato la cosiddetta Grace Kelly Challenge che sta spopolando su Tik Tok e che consiste nel cantare il ritornello del celebre brano Grace Kelly di Mika per mettere alla prova la propria estensione vocale.

Siete a vostro agio con i bassi? Bene, ma quanto bassi? E per gli alti dovete ricorrere al falsetto? Ryan Reynolds si è esibito nella sfida a modo suo, come potete vedere nel video qui sotto nel quale compare a un certo punto il sempre brillante Will Ferrell. I due attori sono insieme sul set per le riprese del musical natalizio Spirited.

La challenge è stata lanciata da Nicole Reynolds (nessuna parentela con Ryan), una pianista 26enne che crea video musicali sui social (più in basso il suo video originale dello scorso febbraio). E nel caso vi chiediate perché Ryan Reynolds sia su Tik Tok, che è un social con un target di riferimento anagraficamente molto basso, è bene che sappiate che il social network è lo sponsor principale della squadra di calcio Wrexham AFC (che milita nella semiprofessionistica National League britannica) di cui l’attore è comproprietario.
