WATCH: Weird Al Yankovic's Surprise Emmys Performance Was, Predictably, Weird—And Wonderful
There's a reason Weird Al Yankovic has earned himself the professional nickname of "Weird," right? The 54-year-old singer-songwriter has been in the music business since the mid-'70s, and as something of a loose cannon, Yankovic's never exactly been a hot commodity as far as awards shows go.
But, hey! The Emmys decided to make that work to their advantage this year with a surprise performance that, naturally, parodied a number of popular shows including Mad Men, Game of Thrones and Scandal. The jest's three minutes were anything but cookie-cutter, and intentionally so, I'm sure—but give me Andy Samberg dressed as Prince Joffrey Baratheon, and I'm sold.
