Group of 20 Idol

Politics, smolitics, let the next Group of 20 Summit be a concert with world leaders on stage.

Russia's Prime Minister Vladimir Putin took the stage the other day to sing the Fats Domino hit Blueberry Hill.

Japan's Prime Minister Yukio Hatoyama made the charts last year when a song - Take Heart - he recorded in 1988 was re-released.

We've seen Canada's Prime Minister Stephen Harper play piano and sing the Beatles tune With a Little Help From My Friends.

and former U.S. President Bill Clinton does a mean version of Elvis Presley's Heartbreak Hotel.

The power of music.

As John Lennon and all of the casualties of Toronto's G20 would have said, imagine.

  1. What did Harper and the Conservative Party pay for the performance rights to that Beatles' song?
