David Hasselhoff Performs an Interesting '80s Medley on 'American Idol'

If you're looking for a wedding singer, look no further than The Hoff.

In a bizarre unique way to end last night's '80s themed episode of American Idol, David Hasselhoff took the stage to sing a medley of hits that were, in his own words, "fun" and "cool." We can think of a few other words to describe his take on the catchy tunes... 

"I wanted to put a little humor in it and a little fun," the former Baywatch star told PEOPLE. "Sometimes people just get up there and sing and they've got a great voice but who cares, you've got to entertain people. I wanted to do a little of the Freddie Mercury. I like to put humor and fun into everything that I do – and also passion. I just put that together yesterday with [Idol's music director Ricky Minor]. It was hard to choose just six songs. I wanted to do, like, 30."

Whatever floats your life preserver, Hoff.
