In the growing canon of dirty Disney, save a spot for this great new video by one-time American Idol finalist and current YouTube sensation Todrick Hall. In it, he takes iconic Disney villains and puts them into the seedy world of the Broadway hit, Chicago. Cruella De Vil, the Evil Queen, Ursula, the Queen of Hearts, Maleficent, and Scar (played deviously by Hall himself) are reimagined as the "six merry murderesses" in "Cell Block Tango," with lyrics cleverly reworked to suit each of their conniving deeds.
As is typical of Hall's online creations, "Spell Block Tango," is an elaborate affair full of familiar faces—fellow AI alum Adam Lambert, Broadway star Shoshana Bean, and Amber Riley of Glee are among those here—and a testament to his love for the Disney oeuvre. See also "Cinderoncé," which is exactly what it sounds like, but even better than you could possibly imagine. And enjoy.
