If tennis doesn’t work out for Serena Williams (sarcasm), she may want to consider being a professional karaoke singer.

In preparation for the U.S. Open, which starts Aug. 31, Williams blew off some steam and performed karaoke at Delta Air Lines’ U.S. Open pre-event, the second annual Delta Open Mic.


Williams, 33, performed “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid, complete with dance moves and Caribbean accent.

“We just kind of wanted to celebrate just kicking off [the] U.S. Open and having fun and relaxing and enjoying it,” Williams told Billboard.

The event was hosted by Orange Is the New Black’s Laverne Cox, and Williams was joined by Cox’s cast mate Uzo Aduba, Saturday Night Live's Jay Pharoah, singer Estelle and The Good Wife's Alan Cumming.

Needless to say, Williams was the highlight of the event, but the others didn’t do too badly themselves.
