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?

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.
