Isn't that the Todrick Hall of previously and previouslier? Seems to be making a living off Disney.

I was completely on board until they put Li Shang in a kabuto.

But hey, Japanese, Chinese, whatever, right?

From your link: "the style of these ancient helmets came from China and Korea" so in this case kinda.

Are they still making Disney movies with fabulous songs like these? Or am I gonna have to shell out for the DVDs? Alan Menken, where art thou?

This is amazingly relevant to my two guilty pleasures (boy bands and disney princes) and I apparantly haven't seen any of his other videos, so there goes the rest of my day :(

It's a neat concept but..
1) the harmony/chords don't always match what they're singing. Did they do a copy-paste of minus-1s from existing boyband songs? (seems like it...)
2) oh man the Autotune... the Autotune...

it was fun to watch, just wish they'd bothered to do the music properly!

What I never knew I wanted until this moment: a boyband to cover Kiss the Girl, for real. With five-party harmonies and cheesy hand gestures. Somebody make it happen!

I loved Ariel hopping away.

aielen: the harmony/chords don't always match what they're singing. Did they do a copy-paste of minus-1s from existing boyband songs?

To the best of my ear, three songs are mash-ups with classics, one is a mash-up with a current boyband song, and one is a straight cover.

Song: Kiss the Girl from The Little Mermaid.
Music: My Girl by The Temptations.

Song: So This is Love from Cinderella.
Music: I Want You Back by The Jackson 5.

Song: Beauty and the Beast from Beauty and the Beast.
Music: In The Still of the Night by The Five Saints.

Song & Music: True to Your Heart from Mulan.

Song: A Whole New World from Aladdin.
Music: What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction.
