It’s hard enough to impersonate one celebrity well enough to impress friends and family. Imagine doing 25.
Meet actress and singer Christina Bianco, who sang CeeLo Green’s “Forget You” like 25 different celebrities at the Hippodrome in London on Sept. 7. Each time a star’s name is called out, she switches voices. Watch her go from impersonating Drew Barrymore to Kristin Chenoweth to Bette Midler, all in one breath.

From this morning’s Pop Watch, EW: As Jerry Seinfeld prepares for the fifth season of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, he’s enlisted the help of an old neighbor to boost the show and its host Crackle’s presence.
In the video, Seinfeld rushes to a meeting with the president of Crackle, Dick Corcoran. A thin mustache, slicked-back hair, and cigar smoke can’t hide that Corcoran is actually the actor’s Seinfeld co-star Michael Richards. Corcoran is concerned, however, that Crackle may never rise to prominence because it’s being held down by Snap and Pop. Snap and Pop! Read the rest of this entry »
