Leaving on a midnight train - Woo Woo!

One of the problems of being in the UK is that American Idol is on a piddling little digital TV channel, and it's very easy to forget its on. In fact, I was surprised to find they only chose the winner a week ago. Didn't they start the auditions back in - what was it now - 2003?

Anyway, there is now a new Idol, who will have little to no impact on the UK charts as far as I can see. But the final had a moment of comedy gold when Jack Black, Ben Stiller and Robert Downey Jr (stars of forthcoming film Thunder Road) were digitally manipulated into a 1973 performance of Gladys Knight and the Pips' Midnight Train To Georgia.

Here it is on youtube (youtube):

For reference, here's the original performance:
