Some say love is a river… we say love is watching Amy Poehler doing this rendition of Bette Midler’s ‘The Rose’.
She is brilliant!
And then she is joined by Jack Black… what more can you ask for.
That is what attendees of the Festival Supreme were graced by – we’re guessing it made the cost of their tickets seem well worth it!
The Parks and Recreation actor nails it.
She has opened up in previous interviews that Bette Midler is in fact one of her idols and she no doubt made her proud.
“I first met Bette Midler in my head when I watched the film The Rose in 1979,” Amy told Vulture in an interview last year.
“And since then, her and I have been best friends – in my head.
“In my head she and I travel together, we have cut an album, and we pranked George Clooney.
“She’s the godmother to the children of mine that she has never met, and once, Bette turned to me in a dream and said ‘Amy, you are the most talented person I’ve ever met. I hate to say this, this kills me, but you’re more talented than me. God bless you and I release you to god.’, and then she turned into a million doves and flew away.”
Well, we always knew Poehler had a vivid imagination – her comedy would not exist without it!
