Lion King vs. Aladdin: Casts from the Two Disney Broadway Shows Battle in Airport Sing-Off during Flight Delays

Circle of life or Arabian nights? Last week, the respective casts of Disney Broadway shows Lion King and Aladdin each experienced the same frustration: a six-hour flight delay in LaGuardia Airport in New York.

But what initially caused irritation also produced something beautiful. The two casts held an impromptu, a capella battle.

It began with the Lion King cast singing “Circle of Life” and blew up into an all out sing-off. In no time, the crowds gathered and the two casts had a full-blown audience. One performer from Aladdin even broke out into a freestyle rap, which the crowd absolutely loved.

Too bad trips to the airport aren’t always like this (minus the delay).
