The title says it all, doesn’t it? Max-Arthur, our favorite Roomba-riding cat, is back to celebrate the season by parading around in “Aladdin” garb. I’m going to assume that the YouTube copyright police are the reason “A Whole New World” isn’t playing in the background (I mean, why else!?), so go ahead and mute the video and blast the tune on your own — I know it’s in your iTunes library!

If you’re like me, still singing “A Whole New World” into your hairbrush while you twirl around your room like a seven-year-old, hold on to your magic carpets, because this is freakin’ amazing.
Lea Salonga, the Broadway legend who was Princess Jasmine’s singing voice in the Disney classic “Aladdin” 22 years ago, teamed up with Il Divo to sing the famous tune again, and HOLY CRAP is she good. Lea’s live version sounds exactly as it did over two decades ago— maybe even better. Watch her flawless performance above and get those hairbrushes ready, because it’s about to get all nostalgic up in here.
