"Saturday Night Live" Does Sinatra In Their … Style

PlayBlog   "Saturday Night Live" Does Sinatra In Their … Style
 
Looks like Twyla Tharp and her Come Fly Away dancers, who moved to the sounds of Frank Sinatra, may have some competition.


A skit during “”Saturday Night Live”’s April 24 episode imagines Sinatra’s life story as a new musical, direct from the Danish Repertory Theater, called I Did It In My Style: The Story of Frank Sinatra. Danish star Aki Hanenrud (Fred Armisen) does his best to bring Ol’ Blue Eyes back to life despite that pesky Danish accent, and being forced to sing the same original tune over and over because his writers couldn’t get the rights to any of Sinatra’s songs (which must explain the show’s title).

Okay, maybe Twyla and her gang are safe. But since they had to change their show's title, too, who knows? (Tharp's was originally called Come Fly With Me.)

The episode’s host, Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe (“Precious”), makes a cameo appearance as a jazz singer.
