What's That, Emmys? You're Having Josh Groban Cover The Rembrandts? So here's something we're going to have to sit through on the night of September 21st. It's been announced that Josh Groban will perform a sizeable medley of classic TV themes on this year's Primetime Emmy broadcast. I can't think of too many TV themes that really lend themselves to classical voice, so this is easily my early prediction of the night's most horrifying moment. It's going to be like when the AMDA kids show up to karaoke bars in Manhattan and belt out "You Raise Me Up" with zero irony. For all you non-New Yorkers, just think of that community theater girl you know who always massacres "Come on Eileen" by refusing to move out of her head voice when you play SingStar -- it's like that. All of the above is so annoying it actually makes me yearn for the grizzled crooning of Michael McDonald. I mean, jesus, Clay Aiken would be less inappropriate than this. Though I guess I never thought the Primetime Emmys could actually make me yearn for Michael McDonald or Clay Aiken so, well-played, Groban.
