 During the 2011 Emmy Awards In Memoriam segment, a group sang a four-part version of "Hallelujah" over the montage of the deceased entertainers. And if you are anything like us, you were sitting at home going, "Who the heck is that singing? Show more Jill Clayburgh." (Well, maybe not that second part.)

The group is none other than the Canadian Tenors, a group hailing from all over Canada, including Toronto, Quebec and Vancouver. Members (above, l to r) Fraser Walters, Remigio Pereira and Victor Micallef have been together since 2006, adding Clifton Murray in 2009

At its worst...yet another hijacking of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," this time for the in memoriam section.

I am happy that in this morning's edition of the Los Angeles Times on the front page of the Calendar section, the wonderful television critic, Mary McNamara acknowledged Leonard Cohen and the persistent hijacking of his Hallelujah.

As for me, this song was the highlight of the Emmy show, especially after sonLeonard aka "the other Leonard" didn't win an Emmy for Best Drama Series as Co-Executive Producer (writer) on "The Good Wife".

sonLeonard teases me a lot about my Leonard Cohen passion.
So when this came on, I texted him, while he was sitting in the Nokia Theater watching them sing it live,
"hope you are enjoying the canadian tenors singing LEONARD COHEN's hallelujah"
