    I can see him getting the Burl Ives intonations down pretty easily, though!

    Nice promo for Scotty.  Wow, 4 takes?  Well I suppose the important thing is getting it right.  haha It looks like from the twitpic that there was a fairly large crowd there. 

    Hope all involved had fun.  Can’t wait to see it on tv!  Thanks mj!

    Hey, It could be becoz of anything….the set, the microphone tuning up, sound, audience & etc. This is taped so it can be anything and this is coming from an obvious non-Scotty fan when he said ” NOT REALLY FOR ME ” . It can be 10 takes. I dont mind because I love Scotty. But from someone who doesnt …. well you can say anything untasteful. But everybody is entitled to his or her opinion. It is perfectly fine. LOL

    I hope we get video of all this before the parade, it sounds like a blast. I’m also excited to see what China from Disney performed. She’s got a good voice on her. 

    So jealous of them being in Disney World too.

    Someone who was at the taping of Scotty singing “Holly Jolly Christmas” stated all of the performers had multiple takes. They do that so they can have different camera shots. A video of Scotty singing at the taping, is on Scotty’s News, Fansite. Its really good, except sometimes hard to hear, because of the screaming fans.
