An unlikely battle ensued in one of jazz singer Michael Buble’s concert, and it’s with the help of a surprise guest.
Michael Buble began with a confession. In front of a large audience, he announced that he wanted to quit singing jazz. This is coming from a singer whose work includes hits like “Haven’t Met You Yet”and “Crazy Love”, and renditions for famous big band songs like “Save the Last Dance For Me” and “Fly Me To The Moon”. Fans have dubbed him to be “This Era’s Frank Sinatra” and yet, Buble was insistent on his plans.
His worried audience was a bit confused by the sudden turn of events, and Buble seemed to get a wind of the mood. He continued his show as he assured his fans in the video:
“Is he kidding, is he serious? I’m serious! I don’t even like jazz to be honest with you.”
He even offered them to get their money back. Then he continued to chastise jazz, even went as far as saying that jazz is a blues band that fell down the stairs. But of course, all of these were part of the show. And this showmanship was something that his fans knew.
Then, he shared his future intentions in music, boldly stating that instead of doing big bands, or jazz, or the blues, he said he wanted to start off by kicking Josh Groban’s “little butt.”
But Groban isn’t just any “little butt”. Being one of the most recognizable voices in music, Josh Groban went on to become a Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter, while also appearing in comedy films and television shows. He is most known for his songs “The Prayer”, “You Raise Me Up”, and “Evermore” from Beauty and the Beast.
This didn’t stop Buble and his challenge, though. He then asked his band to give him something up to “Groban’s level” only to end up with an operatic version of Gloria Gaynor’s 1978 hit “I Will Survive”.
In fact, it was so hilariously well done that it was more than enough to summon Josh Groban himself to the stage.
Wearing an unimpressed look, the comedian and singer stood up the stairs behind the stage and judged Buble from a distance. The crowd roared into cheers for the unexpected treat with Buble having that “He’s right behind me, isn’t he?” look painted all over his face.
Groban finally joined him on the stage, arms around each other as they both greeted the lights for digicams. It must’ve been a crazy moment for these fans because even Buble didn’t know Groban was coming.
And since they were already there in the moment, Buble offered to finally settle the score by asking his fellow artist to sing one of his jazz songs and him singing one of Groban’s songs.
The quips didn’t end there, though. When Buble began impersonating Groban, he was met with a hilarious critique:
“Am I Kermit the Frog? What’s going on here?”
Groban even gave him a tip to get Buble’s opera voice on as the jazz singer belted out “You Raise Me Up”.
To return the favor, Groban snapped his fingers to the rhythm and copied Buble’s moves, before singing his impersonated rendition of “Fly Me To The Moon”.
And even if he doesn’t know the words, Michael Buble was there to help him out. The two singers even held hands during their duet and sang the words “I love you” at each other.
These artists did not only show their talent for singing but also their hilarious sides that left their fans in stitches.
