Mika: Live In Cartoon Motion

Big girls, you are beautiful. And so is Mika, in the new DVD release of his Live in Cartoon Motion performance. The performer Mika is ambiguously gay, campy and falsetto and it thankfully reaching his stride in the United States. His crossover hit, Grace Kelly, put him on the map and now you can’t turn a corner without hearing Mika’s high pitched squeals in Relax, Take it Easy or Love Today.

 

The concert presented is Mika and his band live at L’Olympia in Paris. Mika’s international flair is evident as he sings in English, speaks in French, and dances with his trademark tight-ass skinny trousers with suspenders. The performance covers all of Mika’s songs from his album and even some covers of popular oldies that fit perfectly with his style.

 

The special features included on the DVD several of Mika’s music videos, including Grace Kelly, Love Today, Big Girl, Relax (Take it Easy), Happy Ending and live videos including Grace Kelly, Everybody’s Talkin’, and Love Today. The second terrific bonus is an entire documentary on Mika, his background and his band called A Long Way From Home. The documentary is entertaining, and is interspersed with the same songs as the show, making this the perfect DVD for any Mika fan.
