Tinder users beware – your carefully worded dating profile could become fodder for late night television!

On Thursday night’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Grammy and Oscar winner Jamie Foxx performed musical renditions of some real-life Tinder user’s profiles.

“If you’re on Tinder you’ve probably seen some of the crazy Tinder profiles,” said host Jimmy Kimmel of the dating app, before segueing into Foxx’s live performance.

Accompanied by a pianist and a guitarist, the 47-year-old actor/singer turned several men’s profiles in pop, R&B, country and even theatrical tunes. As the blurred out profiles projected behind him, Foxx crooned things like “I’m not here for hookups. Unless, um, you are. Then we should talk.”

Foxx even got the audience to join in while singing the description of Patrick, 34. “Please don’t be vegan,” he belted while dancing, before adopting a very-convincing Southern twang.

Other hilarious victims included Kareem, 38, who wrote “6 foot 4. And yes, you’re welcome.”
