Kevin Hart Channels James Brown in Mind Blowing Performance on SNL

Kevin Hart challenged Eddie Murphy’s delirious impression of James Brown on Saturday Night Live the other night and blew Murphy away. Kevin is a dancing champion and had no issues moving like the king of funk. Kevin sung ‘Get Up (I Feel Like Being a) Sex Machine’ with nearly the entire cast of Saturday Night Live on stage.

The king of funk, James Brown, died on Christmas in 2006, but his fashion still influences celebrities’ stage garb today. He was known for his eccentric style that was loud, funky and extreme. James Brown was considered a style icon in the late 60s and into the 70s.

Watch Kevin Hart’s James Brown Impression:

The single ‘Sex Machine’ was released in 1970 and recorded, like many of Brown’s singles, in just two takes. The song clocks in at over ten minutes long and had Mods learning new dance moves all over London.
