I’ve seen some great impersonations in my day, but this guy… THIS GUY is the real deal. Not only has he come up with an awesome, catchy original song, but he manages to impersonate 29 celebs with almost perfect accuracy. From Sir Ian McKellan to Bono, Rob Cantor, who just released his debut solo album, is on point when it comes to his impression game. I’m afraid he might actually sound more like Shakira than the real Shakira, if that’s even possible. (I know it’s not, but he’s that good). Check it out for yourself and find some inspiration for your next karaoke night.
How would it sound if Celine Dion sang “Total Eclipse of the Heart”? What if she sang it and then passed the song off to Adele, who then passed it off to Barbra Streisand, Christina Aguilera and Shakira? Singer Christina Bianco has a show called “Diva Impressions,” and during a recent performance she sang the classic Bonnie Tyler hit as 19 different famous singers. Her Zooey Deschanel is so spot on. The whole thing is pitch perfect. [YouTube]
I’m proud to be an American, especially today, when I heard this utterly tone deaf 10-year-old in a zesty sequin American flag vest butcher the lyrics to “Proud To Be An American.” With patriotic hand gestures. He filmed his medley for a Dallas cable access channel in a tribute after 9/11. God bless you, Tyler Busby. See you on “American Idol.” [VideoGum]
