Random funny videos from the world of musicals

I was feeling down tonight so I decided to make a post to up my mood. This is basically a bunch of videos that always make me happy no matter how many times I've watched them! All of them happen to be related to musical theatre.

Christina Bianco's Diva Impressions
This one is a fairly new discovery I made, all thanks to Being Alive, a great Finnish musical blog! Christina Bianco is really funny and talented. It's such a great accomplishment to be able to sing well in your own voice, let alone trying to imitate about a dozen other singers... My favourite impressions here are Julie Andrews, Céline Dion, Britney Spears, Judy Garland and Kristin Chenoweth!

John vs Killian - Phantom Twister
John Owen-Jones and Killian Donnelly are both extremely talented West End performers whom I love to listen to, but on these John vs Killian videos, instead of singing they do funny challenges – because the Phantom of the Opera fandom is always pitting the Phantom and Raoul against each other.

Samantha Barks wins role of Éponine
Okay, anyone who's stalked on Les Mis film related videos will have seen it, but I have to mention it because it always puts me in a good mood. About halfway through the video Cameron Macintosh walks on stage with the cast of Oliver! and surprises Samantha :)

Colm Wilkinson is Back
Another Les Mis film featurette which I love for two reasons: 1. It has Colm Wilkinson in it and he's one of the most adorable people ever, 2. We get to hear his divine voice. Seriously, how many people can still sing so beautifully at the age of 68?

Neil Patrick Harris and Hugh Jackman at 2011 Tony Awards
Both of these guys are so handsome and talented and seem like such nice people I'd love to meet them... And here they are on the same video!

Les Mis Bloopers
One more video I added after I'd already published this post – I can't believe I forgot this one, it is amazingly funny! Vikidál Gyula, the Hungarian Valjean starting at 3:32, is absolutely priceless!

Have a great day everyone!


  1. Agreed – Colm Wilkinson is the most adorable grandpa. :D

  2. I've already seen most of these videos before but since they're all so awesome it's great to see them again : )
