The song was originated by another Broadway vet, Ken Page of Cats and Ain't Misbehavin'. James delivers a super charming version of Oogie Boogie's number. Our ultimate moment is when he calls out to the audience to help out with some background vocals at 0:57. Oh! Then there's 1:37 where he really gets to show off his fantastic voice! Awesome performance, James - we can't wait to see you and your pals this Halloween!
