FUSE TV - Father John Misty Croons R. Kelly's "I Believe I Can Fly" on S.S. Coachella

For regular people, karaoke means tormenting your friends with a singing voice you'd never unveil if not for the liquid courage coursing through your veins... and probably splattered all over your shirt. 

That's why most karaoke joints aren't dry—no one wants to remember how many times their voice cracked while singing "I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me)." Cruise ship karaoke, in particular, can be an especially grueling experience. But thanks to the inaugural voyage of the S.S. Coachella, that just changed.

The definitive video proof is above. It's a clip of slinky indie singer Father John Misty—whose Fear Fun album was a Fuse 2012 favorite—tackling R. Kelly's immortal cheese anthem "I Believe I Can Fly" and absolutely killing it.

"I believe that I can metaphorically fly," FJM ad-libs toward the end of his legitimately impressive performance. "I'm gonna put a couple wings on this cruise ship and sent it up in the air even though its heavy as hell!"

And yes, that's Har Mar Superstar singing backup for him, not Jon Lovitz. Though anyone might reasonably make that mistake.
