Shatner "sings" "Total Eclipse of the Heart"

William Shatner's over-the-top rendition of "Rocket Man" back in 1978 turned him into a singing (if speaking is singing, that is) sensation, and he hasn't stopped hamming it up musically since.

On last night's episode of Lopez Tonight, Shatner teamed up with Lin Yu Chun, whose performance of Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" on a Taiwanese TV talent show has been viewed almost 6 million times on YouTube, turning him into an Internet sensation.

Check out the musical mayhem below when Capt. Kirk comes face to face with the Taiwanese Susan Boyle.
