Modern day musical mix-ups

Post by Dufflecoat Supreme »

The musical finales from Season 2 were a gem, but if they were going today, what would there be.

This occured to me last night and I could not think of anything, it's harder than you'd think.

The best I could come up with was Rob Thomas from Matchbox 20 and having a song sung by St Kilda Footy coach Grant Thomas.

That one is lame I know, too Melbourne-centric (Not that being Melbourne centric held them back from using Ron Barassi, Ted Whitten or Tim Watson for various things.)
....can anyone think of any good ones.
