Disney star Zendaya Coleman may have snagged the role of Aaliyah in the Lifetime Original TV Movie “Aaliyah: Princess of R&B,” but she wasn’t the only celeb who auditioned for the part. This morning, entertainer Teyana Taylor’s friend Tyrone leaked clips of Teyana’s audition tape on Instagram and we can’t front, they weren’t bad. They were actually pretty good (just kinda embarrassing…haunting images of Tyrese’s “Django” tape come to mind).

“I know Teyana is gona be mad at me for posting her audition clips but I honestly feel no one deserves this role more then her,” Tyrone wrote on Instagram. “She embraces Aaliyah dancing , acting and singing. (Which I’ll be posting all 3parts) but unfortunately @teyanataylor heard that Aaliyah’s family isn’t involved & she no longer wanted to be apart of the film. Here’s part 1 The dancing,” he added.

Here’s the second part:

And the third:

Teyana was just one of many women who tried out for the role. “106 & Park” host Keshia Chante, who we thought was a shoo-in for the role, also auditioned.
