About Her Cat Concerto Performance
One of Tans most popular videos, one that saw her rise into the public eye was her cover of the classic Tom and Jerry skit “Cat Concerto.” In the video, it shows Tan fully bedecked in pianists’ garb, drawn on whiskers and cat tail perform an awe-inspiring rendition of the amusing episode, which features Tom and Jerry have one of their classic comedic fights, all whilst playing along to the Hungarian Rhapsody No.2 by Franz Liszt.
Tan mimics Tom’s actions as he sits to play the piano, flapping out her coattails just at the right moments, giving the show a warm, nostalgic and comedic feel; that is of course until she starts playing. Tan begins playing note for note the piece, in perfect synchronized motion with the animated episode.
