In 1966, Sammy Davis Jr. had two very special guests on his show: the Andrews Sisters and the Supremes. The Andrews sisters were a beloved group known for their hit songs and movie appearances during the ’40s, while the Supremes were in the midst of their peak popularity. With such iconic guests coming onto the show at the same time, Sammy was naturally excited to hear the hits; although, he had a different idea in mind.

This clip provided a once-in-a-lifetime moment where two legendary musical groups came together to put on an unforgettable performance; and let’s not ignore Sammy Davis Jr.’s famous charm and wit, which was on full display as well!
