For most travelers, a six-hour flight delay is a major hassle. But when the Broadway casts of "The Lion King" and "Aladdin" are present, it's cause for celebration.

The performers from both shows were stranded at New York's LaGuardia Airport Sunday night, when they decided to treat their fellow passengers to a spirited sing-off, which included favorites "The Circle of Life" and "Arabian Nights."

This isn't the "Lion King" cast's first impromptu concert. Last August, they surprised New York City subway commuters with another rousing rendition of "Circle of life," taking a cue from the musical's Australian cast, who sang the song aboard a flight from Brisbane to Sydney in April 2014.
