Dare we say Vin Diesel is a bigger Beyonce fan than Anna Kendrick?!

The 46-year-old actor took to his Facebook page on Tuesday, Jan. 28 to share some excited news with his over 60 million fans, but instead of just posting a status update, he decided to share a 7:30 clip of himself dancing alone to both Beyonce and Katy Perry...and it's even more awkward than you could imagine.

Pulled from the "Vin Book" vault, the clip begins with "The Fast and Furious" star dancing to the 29-year-old pop star's hit song "Dark Horse"--the same tune the raven-haired beauty performed at the Grammys. He sings along to the lyrics, placing his face all too close to the camera before he begins bobbing his head uncontrollably as the music builds.

He then dances all the way through Juicy J's rap, and just when you're wondering whether the one man dance is ever going to end, Diesel takes a moment to talk to his fans.

"Guys I'm just, I'm excited I'm happy, and calling you guys or shouting out to you guys to say thank you. Universal just called me and told me that "Riddick" is no. 1 on the EVD charts. There's no way in the world "Riddick" would have been made without you guys, you know that...remember how arduous of a road it was to get them to make it rated R and to do it with such a low budget," he says with a giant smile.

 

"And it's a win for all of us, and really really really thank you so much," he continues. "Yeah, I'm excited. Of course, Universal is also saying they want to develop the next one!"

He signs off by kissing his two fingers and making a peace sign as he sings Juicy J's lyrics, "There's no going back" before he proceeds to dive right back in to his wonderfully awkward dance.

Diesel then pauses the music again before he begins discussing the Grammys with his loyal fans.

"Did you guys see the Grammys last night?" he asks. "Like I said I couldn't go because I had to work, I had to do just all the work that goes into getting ready to get back up and shooting 'Fast and Furious 7' so I couldn't have the luxury of going and checking out all the cool performances but some of them were kinda..." he says as he turns up the music, playing Beyonce's song "Drunk In Love" (the singer opened the show with a sexy performance of the song with her hubby Jay Z).

Unfortunately (or fortunately?) Vin hasn't perfected any of Bey's signature sultry moves as he continues to sway awkwardly from side-to-side in a manner similar to his dance style for Katy Perry's "Dark Horse."

The actor even sings along and claps to the music while getting amped up by Queen B's hit tune, bouncing around the room before he mouths the lyrics closely to the camera with a giant grin on his face.

But the "Fast and Furious" star's best move by far was his nod to the singer's "surfboard" lyric, which saw Diesel waddling around the room in the most adorably clumsy manner.

It's nice to see the stud with a smile on his face, considering he's still healing from the death of his "brother" and former costar Paul Walker, who tragically passed away in a fiery car crash on Saturday, Nov. 30.

Diesel most recently shared an epic 18 and a half minute video on his Facebook page which is full of his interactions with his best friend over the years. He captioned the emotional "Vinbook" clip, "A glimpse... of Dom and Brian... off screen."
