Hey, Princess Diana got a famous musical elegy: Elton John’s “Candle in the Wind”. Why shouldn’t American royalty get the same sort of tribute?

What do you mean Oprah is still alive? I thought this extravagant three-day orgy of worship was a memorial to the passing of a legend. She’s just wrapping up her show? Never mind.

Oprah’s status doesn’t make this song spoof from Jimmy Kimmel Live (see video, below) any less funny, or less genius.

Kimmel enlisted in Boyz II Men so he could serenade Oprah…Philly style.
