Let the song parodies roll! NewsRevue featured numerous parodies along with their comedic sketeches this past Sunday night. The first song was “Be Our Guest” from Beauty and the Beast transformed into “Who’ll die next?” Though a morose topic, the song about which A-list celebrity will perish next was hilarious. Later, they performed “The Real Slim Shady” by Eminem transformed into a funny bit about Prime Minister David Cameron. “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen became “No One Respects the Monarchy”. The entire cast dressed up as members of the British Royal family and sang with great energy. They even included a puppet for the baby!
The best song of the evening began with a couple sitting together quietly. The man is looking at his phone and the woman is looking disgusted. The piano player plays just a few chords and the audience is already laughing. It’s “Hello” by Adele. The female vocalist is impressive as she sings the chorus with emotion: “Hello from the other side (of the table)!” The crowd roared with applause at the conclusion.
