Tilda Swinton Leads Awesome Dance-a-Long to Honor Roger Ebert

Tilda Swinton needs to live forever so she can do this for all of us when we pass away. Tilda led about 1,500 Ebertfest 2013 members in a dance-a-long to Barry White's "You’re the First, the Last, My Everything,” in a kind of "spiritual service" for the late critic Roger Ebert.

Ebert's widow, Chaz — who rocked out on stage — introduced Tilda. “We’re not dancing up here," Tilda told the Virginia Theater crowd in Champaign, Illinois. "We’re coming down to dance with you — because if we dance up here, you’re just going to sit and watch us and laugh. So, no observers allowed. Participants only.”

Then the actress danced through the crowd to the music. What a way to go! There's no way Ebert's resting in peace after that — he's dancing in heaven.
