Holy crap! That's the most amazing gem sweater I've ever seen. I love Leslie Hall.

I know what I hate, and I don't hate this.

hmm.. "tight pants / body rolls" is the first thing of hers that I don't like.

Please stop rapping cross between m.i.a. and molly shannon woman. Or at least learn how to rap. Don't make me call in Goddess Kring. I will do it, I swear.

I had the pleasure of seeing her open live last year, thanks for the reminder!

I know what I hate, and I really hate this.

She's got just an average voice, was introduced (in one these clips) by the novelty-act connoisseur Dr. Demento (which is saying something), and she's definitely not easy on the eyes.

My friends, our savior descendeth from heaven, wearing a golden tunic which cleaves closely to her alabaster skin and spectacles like large windows, through which her thickly blue-daubed eyes survey the desolation and decay which has now beset our land. I have no doubt that this dear woman, with a voice like some miraculous love child of Stephen Malkmus and Kim Deal, and with the deep and subtle aesthetic sensibility of St Yankovic himself, is the true cosmic warrior that the prophets have long foretold: the golden, gleaming hero whose fabled coming shall save us from the hoary beast Gah-Gah.

very "funny"

"Funny"? No. This performance of "Islands in the Stream" at that greatest of American venues, the Grand Ole Opry Mills Shopping Mall Karaoke Booth in Nashville, Tennessee, is not funny. It is genius.

My Sister knew her in highschool! Ames, IA. represent!

The fact that 60% of the comments on youtube pertain to her "doability" only makes me love her more. Fashion magazines tell me that boys don't notice when a gal wears mascara or blush, but that he responds positively to her improved complexion. Guess these dudes don't notice that she's wearing gold spandex, blue eyeshadow, the mother of all doofy hairstyles and granny glasses but are puzzled by the existence of a singing dancing woman who just doesn't turn em on. But cantcha at least see that she's hilarious? Thanks, finite! Love this.

The Dance/Rap styling reminds me of The Bloodhound Gang a bit, which is why I especially enjoyed the non-TBG "Gravel in my shoe." Though I liked them all, so thanks to the OP!

If Leslie Hall and Lady Gaga ever collaborated, the resulting genius would be devastating. We are not ready.

I was thinking Tim and Eric are kinda borrowing her moves.

Also, I guarantee you that Gaga is fully aware of Hall, adores her, and would collaborate with her at the drop of a "hat".

In fact, we should start one of those FB pages to make this happen, just like the Betty White SNL thing.

I would totally friend/like that.

Yes, get on it hermitosis.

And Tight Pants/Body Rolls is absolutely hilarious.

I like it, yet I cannot watch any video to the end.
