Lance Bass & Todrick Hall as Prince Charming & Cinderfella

Season 9 "American Idol" semifinalist Todrick Hall has practically created a cottage industry for himself as a premier creator of viral videos--among them a Target flashmob dance that won the praise of Beyonce; a "Beauty & The Beast" parody starring Antoine Dodson; an online "Glee" audition that Ryan Murphy really should have taken seriously; and an LMFAO medley with "Sing-Off" winners Pentatonix shot in a public restroom. But Todrick's latest epic allstar effort, "Cinderfella," may be his most impressive and ambitious yet.

Janice Dickinson as the Evil Stepmother

In the hilarious video, Todrick takes on the classic Cinderella story and rewrites it as a pro-gay marriage morality tale, with openly gay *NSYNC member Lance Bass cast as "The Artist Formerly Known As Prince Charming." Additionally, Janice Dickinson plays Todrick's evil stepmother, "RuPaul's Drag Race" alums Willam and Shangela portray his mean-girl stepsisters, and pop stars Kimberly Cole and Aubrey O'Day perform at the midnight ball as "Aladdin's" Jasmine and Alice In Wonderland.

Yes, this is actually a thing.

The six-minute mini-musical features fun, fierce remakes of familiar Disney singalongs mashed up with Katy Perry, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Chris Brown hits...and it's going totally viral as I type.

Gee, imagine how much more exciting "Idol" Season 9 would have been if Todrick had lasted longer on the show! I have a feeling even new "American Idol" judge Mariah Carey would dig this. Check out Todrick's modern-day, absolutely fabulous, absolutely bizarre fairytale above. It definitely has a happy ending!
