Katie Holmes sings and dances on 'Eli Stone'

October 22, 2008 | 10:00 am

Katie Holmes made her Broadway debut last week in a revival of Arthur Miller's classic play "All My Sons," drawing lukewarm to respectful reviews. Of course, those who want to experience Mrs. Tom Cruise's stage prowess may not be able to just hop a plane to New York and score one of the hottest tickets on the Great White Way.

Last night ABC offered the next best thing for Holmes fans in need of a theatrical fix: During a guest appearance on "Eli Stone," the actress performed a sultry version of the Duke Ellington-Don George song "Hit Me With a High Note and Watch Me Bounce" during an Eli vision sequence. (Remember George Michael?)

For people who forgot to set their TiVos, Culture Monster comes to the rescue with a video clip. 

From what we're hearing so far, Holmes is drawing raves for this performance. Hey, Katie, we hear Broadway's "Chicago" is always on the lookout for new Velmas.
