Shaq Conducts The Boston Pops: A Little Christmas Delight

This Mon­day, the great Shaquille O’Neal, now play­ing for the Boston Celtics, made his con­duct­ing debut, lead­ing the Boston Pops Orches­tra and Tan­gle­wood Fes­ti­val Cho­rus at the Hol­i­day Pops Con­cert. You’ll imme­di­ate­ly rec­og­nize the tunes: the Christ­mas stan­dard, “Sleigh Ride,” lead­ing into Queen’s pow­er bal­lad “We Are the Cham­pi­ons.”

  • The big guy sure does have his fun, does­n’t he? Seri­ous­ly, love him now. But where’d he get that tux so big??

    Does this prove defin­i­tive­ly that the con­duc­tor real­ly has no bear­ing on the per­for­mance once and for all?
