Russell Crowe Still Trying to Make Russell Crowe the Singer Happen, Sings 'Folsom Prison Blues' on Fallon

By Dustin Rowles | Videos | March 28, 2014 | Comments ()

For some reason, yesterday I was actually poking around YouTube and trying to find amusing instances of Russell Crowe singing performances, and for the most part, they were dull. He does actually have a little-seen music video in which he duets with Chrissie Hynde, and the juxtaposition of her voice and his, uh, non-voice is grating, borderline painful. Here, he duets with Patti Smith and is smart enough to be mostly a supplemental voice instead of a lead one. He doesn’t acquit himself much better here, singing a Les Mis song with Hugh Jackman on an Australian Awards Show, although they at least seem to be having a great time.

Last night, he continued his proud tradition of substandard singing performances by taking up a Johnny Cash classic on Fallon. It’s not so much that it’s bad, it’s just uninspired, although Fallon can do wonders on the harmonica.
