Circle of Life
From the 1998 Tony Awards. Sung by Tsidii Le Loka and the chorus, this is the closest thing to the actual musical that has ever been shown on TV. They literally went all out in this live performance, including not only most of "Circle of Life", but also performing the ending reprise of the musical.

Circle of Life
From The Rosie O'Donnell Show. Not nearly as good as the version shown at the 1998 Tony Awards. It sounds like a partly-finished version with a lot of rough edges. However, it was performed back in the very early days of the musical, so this is to be expected. It's still not a bad clip.

Endless Night
From The Rosie O'Donnell Show. Jason Raize performs "Endless Night", a song sung by Simba to his father when he's grown up and very lonely.

Thanks to Greg Ludwick for sending me this tape!

From The Late Show with David Letterman. Heather Headley strikes an amazing performance of "Shadowland", the show-stopping song by Nala just before she goes off into the unknown.

They Live in You
From The Rosie O'Donnell Show. Samuel Wright, Jason Raize, and Tsidii Le Loka perform an incredible mix of the two songs from the musical, combining them in this fantastic performance of "They Live in You".
