ELPHABA WHO?

WATCH: Broadway Stans Freak During Mika And Kristen Chenoweth’s “Popular” Duet

We didn’t think Mika could get any better (or gayer), but the British singer-songwriter truly out-gayed himself last night by calling on gal pal Kristen Chenoweth to join him in a surprising on-stage cameo at Le Poisson Rouge.

According to Broadway.com, the sold-out audience went “absolutely insane” as the Tony Award-winning performer joined Mika in singing the hook from “Popular Song,” a track from his recent album, The Origin of Love. Broadway fans in attendance went from absolutely insane to losing their shit when Chenoweth sampled “Popular,” a show-stealing song made famous by her originating role in Broadway’s Wicked.

These two together are everything. Elphaba ain’t got shit on Mika.

    Broadway Stans? Is that a typo or someone I have yet to hear of?

  • skcord

    @pfp It is a reference to the song “STAN” by Eminem. Basically it is a super-fan or someone who borders on obsessive.

    I really like a lot of Mika’s stuff (including this song) but he seems to be having a really hard time here. To anyone who’s seen him in concert: is he not very good live or was he just off his game in this clip?

    @Kevin B: usually he’s insanely good live. First time I saw him live I was completely blown away by his performance, and that does not happen to me too often. But I admit that doesn’t come across in this video. My guess is they didn’t rehearse a lot and he was a bit too busy trying to accommodate her and let her shine, because she was obviously doing him a favour by being there.
