Perez Hilton Strips And Samples Show Tunes With The Skivvies

Posted: Updated:

So this is what Perez Hilton has been up to lately...

The celebrity blogger and television personality took to NYC's 54 Below over the weekend to perform a selection of show tunes and other tracks with The Skivvies. Part of band's aesthetic is taking off their clothes in order to play "stripped down" covers of pop songs -- and Hilton was more than ready to join in on the fun.

Throughout his set, Perez performed samples of songs from "Rent," "Rock Of Ages," "Chicago" and "Grease," along with a selection of funny stories.

"Who would have thought a few years ago that Perez Hilton would be singing on stage in his underwear? NOT ME!" Hilton said in a statement sent to The Huffington Post. "I was so nervous to perform with The Skivvies at 54 Below, but I'm so glad I did. It was one of the best rides I've been on all year -- the excitement of the moment! The getting ready for the performance! It was all so much fun. And such hard work! I put in the hours with my vocal coach AND with my fitness coach! I did my daily vocal exercises, countless sit-ups and I didn't drink or cheat on my healthy eating for four weeks leading up to my performance. It was all worth it! The reaction I've gotten has been so positive! I can't wait to do it again -- and hopefully on Broadway soon!"

Check out Hilton's performance above.
