Anderson Cooper was absolutely bewildered when Dr. Conrad Murray, Michael Jackson's doctor, serenaded him in the middle of his interview from prison on Tuesday.

Murray gave a two-part telephone interview in which he maintained his innocence. He is currently serving a sentence for involuntary manslaughter in Jackson's death. At one point, he began, "You know what describes me? Let me sing something for you."

He proceeded to deliver a rendition of Nat King Cole's "The Little Boy that Santa Claus Forgot" in a falsetto voice, singing, "In the street he envies all those lucky boys, but goodness knows he didn’t want a lot. I’m so sorry for that laddie who hasn’t got a daddy, the little boy that Santa Claus forgot."

"That song tells my story," Murray concluded. “That’s how I grew up.

The best part was probably when Cooper, dripping confusion, glanced off-camera; presumably, he was looking at his producers as if to say, "WHAT IS GOING ON?"

The show declared on its website that it "was the first time someone broke out into song during an interview with Anderson."
