Apparently, EW.com now has a Department of Karaoke, and Slezak is its secretary. Last week, he forwarded me an email announcing that Alanis Morissette is holding a contest on MySpace Karaoke (now through July 13). You press “record” and perform one of four tracks from her new album Flavors of Entanglement (read EW’s B+ review here), then enter to win tickets to an Alanis concert and an autographed microphone. Alanis herself will pick the winner. Funny? Sad? Or Funny-sad? I can’t decide.
BUT, when I went to MySpace Karaoke for “research,” I poked around and stumbled onto Mychael With a Y!!’s awesomely bad rendition of Aerosmith’s “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” (pictured). You’ll want to click this link, and stick it out until 1:07. You will not be sorry. I had to call people into my office to listen to it. It was that “good.”
