                        It looks like a copy of Neil Patrick Harris his opening a few years ago! And that was brilliant! This was.... not original.. sorry

                                                    He would sing a lot better if he would to lose weight. Plus, he's English with that accent...couldn't understand anything. When you have seen one opening, you've seen them all.
