In an "American Idol''-style competition, stars and singers ranging from William Shatner to Donald Trump to Frederica von Stade will perform themes from TV series, with viewers able to pick their favorite song via online or text-message voting.
William Shatner ("Boston Legal'') and opera's von Stade [will sing] the theme from Shatner's 1960s series "Star Trek.''
Merciful $DEITY. This is horrible on two levels:
Shatner is no singer. If you don't believe me, just hunt up his version of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. <shudder>
Yes, there are lyrics to the Star Trek theme. They're bad. Really bad. It was a service to society when the final theme was recorded for the show without them.
