♪♫ Vladimir Putin finds Blueberry Hill

By Melissa Bell

This should be watched without any introductory comment:

Okay, then. That happened. Yes, it really is Vladimir Putin (I have to say, Putin shows up Clinton's saxophone stylings). The Russian prime minister took to the stage to sing "Blueberry Hill" in one of the odder things to occur this weekend (and there were plenty of odd occurrences).

The singing took place at a charity event in St. Petersburg to raise money for Russian cancer centers. Even more peculiar than the prime minister's vocal prowess is the random guessing game of U.S. celebrities who attended the event. Sharon Stone, Goldie Hawn and Mickey Rourke are all caught on tape rocking out. It feels a bit like a follow up to the Best Music Video of Last Week -- And Maybe Ever.

I don't even know what to say.

I didn't spot Mickey Rourke but I did see Kevin Costner.

Can anybody here read lips? I'm just curious if Goldie Hawn was really just singing along or was she saying some other stuff to Kurt as well?
