Bizarre, but I kind of enjoyed it. Beats rap.

Anyone remember David Gates and Bread?

Can't say I care for the music all that much, but the notes the guy hits....and the timbre of his voice when he does it....is awesome.

Wow, and I thought Freddie Mercury's full voice high D in "Who Wants to Live Forever" was impressive...

...woulda thought...but his voice is too low at the start.

Castrati, perhaps? Or Milli Vanilli-ski? And WHAT was up with the black-hooded orchestra? They look like something out of an islamofascist "beheading video".

I can think of only one thing that could make a man hit a note that high....and it's not pretty.

My wife thinks it is a "he-she"... a woman pretending to be a man. Notice the scarf covering up the throat. Whatever it is, this person has an above-average vocal range for sure!

His name is VITAS. He is a Latvian-born Russian singer, with classical training, very popular in Russia and China.

Possibly...but I think the first vocals sound too masculine.

I liked it except for the shrieking part, the rest was great, gay, but great. BTW, I think he is really a she.

Great voice, but he lacks Klaus Nomi's stage presence.
