Disney Family Singalong Volume II: Idina Menzel and Ben Platt sing 'Whole New World', fans say they 'ruined' it
Idina Menzel and Ben Platt joined the Disney Family Singalong for Volume 2 but their adaptation of 'Whole New World' did not satisfy the fans
'Disney Family Singalong Volume II' had everyone eagerly waiting for their favorite songs to play and it seemed like the adults had the child in them coming out just to singalong with some of the best singers. For today's (May 10) show, Idina Menzel and Ben Platt decided to come and show their vocal skills as they decided to sang 'Whole New World'.
Menzel is known for her voiceover for Elsa on 'Frozen' while Platt has shown some of his incredible singing skills on movies like 'Pitch Perfect', 'Pitch Perfect 2', and others. The two got together to sing 'Whole New World' but it seems like fans were not too happy with how the song turned out to be.
Many thought they weren't the best singers for a song that is iconic as one comment read, "Idina Menzel singing “A Whole New World,” just really ruined my night," read one comment. Another wrote, "Dear Idina, you’re ruining this song. I said what I said."
Some thought that Platt should have not been in the song as the comment read, "A Whole New World is not the song for Ben Platt." Another wrote, "My goodness that was the worse rendition of a whole new world I’ve ever heard."
Meanwhile, others gave options as to who would have been the perfect person to do a song, "Ok as much as I love Idina Menzel & Ben Platt... where is the live-action Aladdin & Jasmine?! How come Hakuna Matata was done by their live-action counterparts?!?!" Some hoped for Menzel to stick to her famous songs from the 'Frozen'.
"I was hoping Idina would do Show Yourself or Into the Unknown but honestly I’m not even mad. So good," read the comment. While there were many who did not appreciate the singing, there were others who thought that their performance was magical. "Ben Platt AND Idina Menzel singing A Whole New World...together...AMAZING. I needed this so much in my life today," read one comment.
Another added, "I fully SCREAMED when Idina announced she would be singing the A Whole New World duet with Ben Platt." While there might be some who hated the song, there are others who loved it as well. Looks like Menzel and Platt have left the internet divided.
