Rebel Wilson Bewitches ‘Little Mermaid Live’ Performance as Perfectly Nasty Ursula

Subscribe to PopCrush on

With sky-high blond hair and a dress only a sea witch could sport, Rebel Wilson delivered a perfectly nasty rendition of “Poor Unfortunate Souls” as part of Hollywood Bowl’s The Little Mermaid Live on June 4. In the clip above, and in front of a full orchestra, Wilson shimmies, shakes and barks out the song’s famously evil sentiment.

If you want to cross the bridge, my sweet, you’ve got the pay the toll / Take a gulp and take a breath, and go ahead and sign the scroll,” she warns between cartoon interludes straight from the 1989 Disney cartoon classic.

And from darkness to light, Sara Bareilles shined as the story’s adventurous protagonist, Ariel. With a series of crimson extensions and a sea foam gown, Bareilles delivered a beautifully naive take on “Part of Your World” in the segment below that finds her up and away from her typical piano perch. “When’s it my turn? / Wouldn’t I love, love to explore that shore up above?” she pleads.

Tituss Burgess also shined as Sebastian, John Stamos charmed the crowd as Chef Louis and Darren Criss made for a perfectly buttoned-up Prince Eric.
