Boy George, Rufus Wainwright, David Byrne And Others Sing 'Summer Nights' From 'Grease': VIDEO

Grease

A terrific combination of famous male singers joined forces at the "If I Loved You: Gentlemen Prefer Broadway" concert last weekend, serenading the audience with a wonderful rendition of the "Grease" classic "Summer Nights."

John Travolta and Olivia Newton John were not present, but Boy George, Rufus Wainwright, David Byrne, Josh Groban, Steven Page, Brennan Hall, and Ezra Koenig handled the material just fine (including some superb falsetto work). I only wish Stockard Channing had made an appearance...

Check out the fun, AFTER THE JUMP...

  5. Um this kinda sucked. Seriously, these guys are supposed to be pro's but it came off like bad karoake/high school playish.

  7. Also Brent Carver on the right.

    I missed the show, but it sounds like it was an interesting night of broadway love songs sung man to man. I did get to see Rufus, Josh Groban, and Stephen Oremus talk with NYT music guy Jon Pareles. I saw a clip of Carver and Rufus doing Every Day a Little Death, looked pretty good.

  9. No way in HELL I'd ever listen to anything with Josh Groban and Rufus Wainright in it. Goat Boy and The Whiner - yikes !
