Performance part of untelevised pre-show entertainment
Three of the Stranger Things child cast performed at the Emmys on Sunday night as part of its untelevised pre-show entertainment.
Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo and Caleb McLaughlin took to the stage as guest found their seats, covering Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars‘ hit ‘Uptown Funk’. Watch footage beneath. See the full list of Emmys winners.
It’s not the Stranger Things cast’s first show of musical prowess either. Gaten has appeared on Broadway before and Mille Bobby Brown recently rapped Nicki Minaj’s verse from ‘Monster’.

Stranger Things is the American supernatural science fiction horror series set in 1980s Indiana, written and directed by The Duffer Brothers and executive produced by Shawn Levy and Dan Cohen.
Netflix finally confirmed that it has renewed Stranger Things for a second season earlier this month. Season two will feature nine episodes – one more than the first – with co-creators Matt and Ross Duffy returning alongside executive producer Dan Cohen.
“We’ll be doing more than just a rehash of season one,” Cohen has now told Yahoo!. “We’re coming back with a few new characters, expanding storylines and mythologies, so it’ll feel like the stakes are raised and more is going on and really delivering on the promise and pushing for more.”
