Cool Videos: Singer performs Diva Plavalaguna opera from The Fifth Element

11.19.2010

With the exception of Ruby Rhod, Luc Besson's epic sci-fi concoction THE FIFTH ELEMENT had plenty to like: Bruce Willis kicking ass, Milla Jovovich looking gorgeous and kicking ass, funky costumes, outlandish aliens, Gary Oldman gnawing scenery, a huge orb of space evil, Tiny Lister as the President, and a show-stopping vocal performance by a giant blue tentacle-headed lady.

At the time, singer Inva Mula reportedly claimed that composer Eric Serra's music for Diva Plavalaguna's "Diva Dance" was not humanly possible to achieve -- Mula's notes were strung together digitally for the scene. But Badass Digest dug up this vid from a couple years ago, in which an extraordinary singer essentially proves the impossible to be otherwise. Wild. (Original scene below for comparison.)

My roommate and I love this movie to a near healthy degree.

This chick's awesome. Wish she included the first part.

She's really cute, too.

great!

Wow that was pretty cool! I always wondered if anyone could really do that. She has another video on You Tube where she does singing impersinations. She does people like Whitney Houston, Julie Andrews, and Barbara Streisand.

Anyone else misinterpret the title and think that they would see Bryan Singer doing something?

Actually, that's not an answer. That's a question. And to answer your question: ME. I give a shit.

Run along, hater.
