Robin Thicke is such a wild card.
On Wednesday, the crooner was in court to defend himself against claims that Blurred Lines is a plagiarized version of Marvin Gaye's Gotta Give It Up.
To demonstrate that the hit is not a rip-off of Marvin, the singer chose a UNIQUE way to prove his point.

In front of the ENTIRE court, Robin played and sang a medley of U2's With Or Without You, The Beatles' Let It Be, Alphaville's Forever Young, Bob Marley's No Woman No Cry, and Michael Jackson's Man In the Mirror, to demonstrate that many popular songs share similar chord progressions. Oh, and the singer even danced a little!
Ha! Smart move but also kind of…awkward.
We imagine the court stenographer was like…
Man, we would have LOVED to be a fly on that wall!
In addition to the inneresting free concert, the 37-year-old told the jury that he "was not present when the song was created," and that "I was living in revisionist history for my own benefit."
Thicke's admission supports earlier accounts that he was too drunk and/or high to have written Blurred Lines let alone plagiarize the work of someone else.
The trial is projected to last 8 days and Paula Patton, Pharrell, and T.I. are all expected to testify.
We can't wait to see what happens next!!
