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]

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]
is so freaking hot I’d watch him do just about everything. Yes, even karaoke. Jude starts singing the Chuck Berry classic “Johnny B Goode” about 44 seconds in — a little tone deaf, but in a hot way. [YouTube

If you think the mouse squeals you can hear between your walls are gross, just wait until you listen to the ones that are normally (and luckily) inaudible to the human ear. Sure, over hearing a neighbor or roommate having sex can be quite traumatizing, but male mice screech higher than Michael Jackson when theyâ€™re getting tail. Researchers at the University of Toronto, have discovered that boy mice actually have feelings and real emotions — itâ€™s in their genes. For example, when a male mouse encounters a female or even simply smells one, it gets so excited that it will chirp in a special way based on its individual genetic make up. Basically, male mice sing sweet ballads to show their softer side — remember Fieval from American Tail? [New Scientist] Keep reading »
