British (and Hollywood) royalty Helen Mirren and “Late Late Show” host James Corden faced off in one of his most impressive “Drop the Mic” segment’s to date last week and, of course, the “queen” left victorious.

Though she was apprehensive about doing the sketch, Mirren now thinks she could totally keep spitting hot fire, and possibly even record a Grammy-winning rap album.

“Well, it wasn’t very freestyle, but all the people on the show are just incredibly sweet and helpful and encouraging because it was something that was so far out of my comfort zone, basically,” Mirren told Vulture. “I’m like, ‘Oh, no! I can’t do that!’ But I’m always up for doing something that scares the s— out of me.”

When the reporter suggested the “Winchester” star could win potentially win a Grammy, Mirren was excited about its potential possibility.

“Oh, wouldn’t that be cool? Good idea,” Mirren said. “Absolutely, do a sort of rap Shakespeare album that wins a Grammy. That would be fabulous. It might be a step too far, but I would love that.”

Mirren is only a Grammy win away from becoming the latest person to the enter EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony) winner’s club.
