In order to combine the talents of both of his guests, “Late Night with Jimmy Kimmel” host Jimmy Kimmel asked Emmy-nominated actor Benedict Cumberbatch to read the lyrics from R&B singer R. Kelly’s upcoming song, “Genius.” The results are hilarious.
The animated project will also feature the band's original songs, as well as soul and blues classics, and new material recorded specially for the series, which Aykroyd will help to develop alongside "Saturday Night Live" writer Anne Beatts.
John Lennon's handwritten lyrics, Lady Gaga's first piano and an angry note from Kurt Cobain discussing the possibility of disbanding Nirvana after an unflattering magazine article are among the top items being offered at an upcoming auction.
