If you follow the breakout star on her social channels, you would have also seen Rodrigo's videos of her watching the skit in her Instagram Story, literally "losing her mind" while the event was unfolding.

Proving just how hard it is to escape its catchy grasp, Friends star Monica... err.. Courteney Cox also provided her own rendition of the heartbreaking love song. Sitting at a piano, Cox and her musician friend Joel Taylor on the guitar covered the track and captioned an Instagram post saying, "even my dogs love this song,"
