Crazy Ex-Girlfriend addicts fell in love with main character Rebecca Bunch pretty much the moment they saw actress Rachel Bloom perform, with no apparent embarrassment or reticence, perform “The Sexy Getting Ready Song,” an ode to the truly disgusting things that go into looking hot as hell for a first date (think: cramming into Spanx, bleaching one’s mustache, etc.). And in real life, Rachel Bloom is just as willing to share the warts-and-all behind-the-scenes experience of getting into a Golden Globes gown with a truly hilarious “cover” of the initial song.

In “The Sexy Golden Globey Song,” Bloom gets her groove on in her corset and Spanx, changing the lyrics of her the song to reflect the seriousness of her big night — after all, she’s a Best Actress nominee for the show, which isn’t just her first big starring role, but it’s also a show she co-created and executive produces. So she knows a little something about choreographing memorable dance numbers (as seen below).

Bloom is hardly the first star to attribute her killer red carpet curves to a good pair of Spanx — Kim Kardashian has introduced us to the wonders of the Double Spanx and Tina Fey debuted the full look on David Letterman — but she might be the first to set it to music. But, the star tells the LA Times, she’s so excited about the show’s success she just can’t contain herself (unless you would call being being sucked in by boning and spandex to the point of saying “I can’t breathe” contained).
