Seth MacFarlane, we get it: you like to sing. You really, really like to sing. You sing in every single episode of Family Guy. As several difference characters. Sometimes at once. You released an album of your singing, Music Is Better Than Words. Your song from your film Ted (Everybody Needs a Best Friend) is nominated for an Oscar.
“I thought it would be over by now, but it won’t stop.” — Destiny’s Child, Survivor.
Instead of ending the show with the award for best picture like it’s always been done, Oscar host Seth MacFarlane is going to treat us with a musical number. I’m guessing he’s also going to open with a musical number. And I’m guessing he will find a way to put another musical number in the middle. Also Barbra Streisand is going to sing and you know Anne Hathway is going to find a way. Where there’s a will… there’s a Hathaway.
Okay, anyway… Oscar producers said in USA Today:
After the Best Picture award has been given, Seth and Kristin [Chenoweth] will perform a special number and we think it will be a ‘can’t miss’ moment…There are going to be some big surprises that no one will see coming.
Yeah, I can totally miss it. The audience that has to sit there and watch it though? Probably not so much. Can you imagine having just lost and then Seth MacFarlane not letting you leave because he has to sing for six minutes?
Whatever, I hate the Oscars and there’s probably nothing he could do that I would like. Unless he said, “Ladies and Gentlemen, DAVID BOWIE!!!” and that was the surprise. That would be cool.
