Glen Powell and Sydney Sweeney recreate 'Anyone But You' scene

Glen Powell and Sydney Sweeney just recreated their "Anyone But You" scene at the 2024 People's Choice Awards. The two co-stars performed Natasha Bedingfield's "Unwriting," based on their 2023 romantic comedy, live at the February 18 awards show.

In the movie, Powell's character, Ben, overcomes vertigo by singing along to a nostalgic song that was also the theme song to MTV's "The Hills ."

During his comedy performance at the awards show, Powell appeared nervous on stage. "Are you okay, Glenn?" Sweeney asked. "Yeah, there's just too many people here. I don't know, I'm a little nervous," he replied. His partner was doing "things to calm you down."

Bedingfield's surprise performance

With the crowd's help, Sweeney began singing "Unwriting" to help calm Powell's nerves, as seen on "Anyone But You." "It's time to bring out the big guns," she added as Bedingfield joined the pair on stage.

Bedingfield's "Unwriting" is the third single from her 2004 album of the same name. The song peaked at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 and stayed in the top 10 for 13 weeks.

Viewers were quick to comment on the trio's surprising performance, with one fan calling it "iconic".

"Not only are 2000s songs making a comeback, but romantic comedies in general are making a comeback as well. This is so awesome to see," another user commented, while one fan joked, " Hills fans are gonna puke right now !”

"Anyone But You " is adapted from William Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" and tells the story of a seemingly perfect couple, Bea (Sweeney) and Ben, whose initial attraction begins on their first date. Then it changed. However, the pair decided to keep up appearances and pretend to be a couple while attending a destination wedding.

The romantic comedy directed by Will Gluck was nominated for the 2024 People's Choice Award for Comedy Movie of the Year, and both Sweeney and Powell were nominated for Comedy Movie Star of the Year.
