Monday night's 2019 NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament Championship game was captivating television, but the real spectacle was actually happening on Darren Rovell's Twitter account.

Rovell wears quite a few hats when it comes to a job title, but he's pretty much the polar opposite of a pop star. Well, at least that's what we believed until this Monday, when he was filmed singing and dancing to CBS Sports' classic March Madness theme song, "One Shining Moment." Rovell's rendition has already received more than 1.2 million views, making it even more viewed than CBS' actual video.

As of 7 a.m. EST this morning, CBS' "One Shining Moment" video was hovering around 244,000 views, while Rovell's version was already nearing 1 million views.

With pipes like a young Justin Timberlake, and dance moves that would even make Usher jealous, it's not hard to see how Rovell went viral here.

Rovell filmed this video while he was waiting around for last night's title game between Virginia and Texas Tech to begin. If that's not an argument to start next year's title game before 9:20 p.m. EST, then I don't know what is.

However, fans should take solace in the fact that Rovell chose to cover this, and not Adam Levine's halftime performance at Super Bowl LIII, because I think we can all agree that would've been a little more jarring.
