I came across this video on ifilm.com the other day. It's probably unfair to criticize a 35 year old performance in light of more modern sensibilities (how will people react to, say, a recording of this year's Madonna's Grammy Award appearence in the year 2040?)
That being said, this is at once, a spectacularly painful and hysterically funny performance of William Shatner "interpreting" Elton John's song, Rocketman. Man, can that guy smoke a cigarette. (I think that's Bernie Taupin introducing Shatner. He looks particularly uncomfortable; he must know what's coming.)
Check out this amazing artist in action here.
