By Matt Dolloff (@mattdolloff)

On October 2, 1976, Joe Cocker sang on Saturday Night Live as the musical guest. He performed his classic “Feeling Alright”, pieces of which you can see in the video above. But Cocker wasn’t alone on the stage, as another special guest joined him for the performance: John Belushi.

No, it wasn’t the Blues Brothers doing a duet with Cocker. It was Belushi doing his incredible impersonation of the famed British singer. Despite having a distinctly gritty voice and strained singing style, Cocker is also well-known for his odd mannerisms while performing, as well as almost painfully contorted facial expressions.

Well, Belushi nails all of it as he “sings” guest vocals for the song. Perhaps the best part is that Cocker doesn’t miss a beat, maintaining a straight face and continuing his usual on-stage antic as Belushi copies them – while standing right next to him.
