It's been almost a month since Netflix dropped Regency romance Bridgerton and brightened up our 2020, but the internet's obsession with the series is still very much real. As well as our unbridled love for the Duke of Hastings and his spoon, Eloise Bridgerton and Penelope Featherington's friendship, and all the incredible costumes, we're also now totally into the idea of a Bridgerton musical thanks to a few geniuses on TikTok.

It all started with TikTok user Abigail Barlow making a song titled 'Burn For You' about Daphne and Simon's honeymoon. "If this is what you call a honeymoon, pacing round our separate rooms, running from our elaborate ruse, we're doomed," she sings. "Please, forgive me Your Grace, can't even look me in the face and now I must lie in the mess you made."

As well as 'Burn For You', Abigail has also written a track from the perspective of Penelope and another one just about the Duke of Hastings.

And, thanks to the TikTok function that allows others to duet with you, Bridgerton fans all over have been singing Simon's part in 'Burn For You', using the hashtag #BridgertonMusical.

It's so good, Netflix shared the TikTok of Abigail duetting with singer and actor Nick Daly, writing: "Absolutely blown away by the Bridgerton musical playing out on TikTok. Standing ovation for @abigailbarloww & @nick_t_daly."

While Bridgerton creator and showrunner Chris Van Dusen, who also spotted the TikToks, tweeted, "The #Bridgerton musical is blowing. My. Mind."
