Vox Gets Into Treble: The Slashie Awards

Back when No Doubt was still producing music and VH1 was culturally relevant, the television station co-hosted a fashion awards ceremony with Vogue that was forever commemorated in the 2001 movie Zoolander. From IMDB.com:

Inside, Fabio accepts the “Slashie” award for the “best actor ‘slash’ model and not the other way around.” When the Male Model of the Year is announced, Derek mishears the announcement and embarrasses himself by trotting up to accept Hansel’s award. In the audience, Mugatu tells Maury that Derek is just the idiot he’s looking for to resolve the Malaysian situation. Maury sadly agrees that Derek, now washed up, is “ready.”

This week, Vox is celebrating a whole new kind of Slashie award: actors who sing. There was one basic criterion that Vox used: namely, the song cannot have been made for the purpose of a movie—it needed to be a standalone song. Without further ado, here are the nominees for this week’s “Slashie” Awards, featuring the stars of everything from Hannah Montana to Degrassi to 2 Fast 2 Furious and, of course, the original “Knight Rider.”
