‘Just a Friend’ Opening With Rita Wilson [WATCH]

Rattling that tv, what a nasty image!
Don’t get upset, it’s not a serious catastrophe.
There’s nothing on tonight, he stated, I don’t know what’s the matter!
Nothing’s ever on, she stated, so I don’t know why you hassle.

That’s a terrific song concerning the energy of tv (kudos if it by reminiscence) that the Emmy Awards did not use to kick off its 2021 ceremony, as an alternative riffing on the extra mainstream “Only a Pal” by Biz Markie to unite the lots of of nominees braving the pandemic to get some trophies. Host Cedric the Entertainer, Billy Porter, Jonathan Groff, and a radiant Rita Wilson all make karaoke appearances to sing about their love of TV, as does, amazingly, an ecstatic Michael Douglas, who’s having fun with the razzmatazz within the background together with his spouse Catherine Zeta-Jones. As M.C. Wilson raps:

Who knew that they had a lot TV?
This HBO Max I acquired without cost.
And this rap wouldn’t be full.
I would like to present a shout out to Sesame Avenue.
So many characters I like, the truth is.
That’s Bert and Ernie’s enterprise, we don’t care about that.

You simply know Chet Hanks is fuming that he wasn’t requested to be there.
