Okay, I think I'm the only person on the planet that does not watch American Idol. I heard all this hubbub about Celine doing a duet with Elvis last night and I thought...oh they're going to do another "Unforgettable" like when Natalie Cole sang with her father. Fancy editing. Big Whoop. So I didn't watch it. I got enough Elvis videos and documentaries in my collection to keep me occupied for years, why would I watch Celine fuck up his songs? Nope. nope. Not even the promise of Madonna's "taped message" got me to watch last night.
Then I YouTubed it this morning and saw ELVIS walking out with CELINE. For a minute I thought..."YES! The scientific community finally received my many letters, obtained Elvis' DNA and cloned him!!!" I was about to break the bad news to Brad that sadly, the mothership of all hillbillies has returned and that I must heed the call.
But alas, it was just SUPER fancy editing; however, I have to give it up to AI. That was brilliant. So brilliant, I started trolling Ebay for a time machine.
I have the 1968 Comeback Special on DVD. (Where they got that Elvis performance from)..and I have to tell you all that I could have done that duet better than Celine considering, I've sang along to the entire DVD
...and I have his moves to that song (and many others) memorized...
and if you get me drunk enough, I will put on an oversized suit and amaze you with how a Filipino chick can turn into Elvis with one shot and a glass of rum and coke. Its a little disturbing.
Seriously, no one is hot now like Elvis was hot. White suit with that hair, the perfect face, the swagger..oh jeebus.. I screeched like a groupie inside and I think my panties went down a notch.
