Christina is a reporter based in Boise, Idaho. She's a veteran vegetarian, a political junkie and a huge grammar snob. On the weekends, she can usually be found binging on Netflix, playing the piano or petting her cats, Daisy and Dandelion.

Did we miss the memo on this hot new trend?

Here's a celebrity trend we fully endorse: stars going undercover and busking on the street.

It's not a new concept — Erykah Badu did it as a social experiment once. A Washington Post reporter won a Pulitzer for doing it with a world-class violinist. However, this week, it's trending once again — and with vigor! — because a handful of stars donned costumes to play music in the street for unsuspecting passers-by.

First, there was Harry Potter star Tom Felton, who strummed on a guitar and sang some soft acoustic ballads on the streets of Prague's Old Town. In the video he posted on Instagram, you can clearly see people passing by none the wiser. That's not too surprising — it's been a few years since he played Draco Malfoy, and he doesn't really look like the character anymore.

Miley Cyrus and Jimmy Fallon had less luck. They both put on wigs and costumes to perform in a New York City subway as part of a bit for Fallon's show. From the video, it's hard to tell if people knew exactly who they were, but it was clear the crowd knew something was up because enough people gathered around for their rendition of Dolly Parton's "Jolene" that the entire platform was blocked.

Definitely watch that full video, because the moment when Fallon and Cyrus rip off their costumes and perform "Party in the USA" is delightful.
