Top Videos: Kimmel Asks About Fake Bands at Coachella, Kate McKinnon and Ellen Dance

This week, Jimmy Kimmel interviewed fans at the Coachella Music Festival about some hot new bands — the only problem is, the bands don't actually exist. But that didn't stop festival-goers from gushing about them. Elsewhere, Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon did her best Ellen DeGeneres impersonation in front of Ellen herself, and Boardwalk Empire's Steve Buscemi discovered a family connection with the band Vampire Weekend. Also, in random celebrity strokes of genius, Tilda Swinton led the audience at Ebertfest in a dance to Barry White in remembrance of Roger Ebert, and Buscemi's Boardwalk castmate Michael Shannon did a dramatic (and NSFW!) reading of a nasty letter from a sorority president. Check out those clips and more in our weekly roundup of Top Videos:

Roger Ebert's Cancer Returns; Says He's Taking "Leave of Presence"

Roger Ebert says that his cancer has returned, so it's time to slow down and take a "leave of presence."

"The immediate reason for my 'leave of presence' is my health," he writes on his Chicago Sun-Times blog.  "The painful fracture that made it difficult for me to walk has recently been revealed to be a cancer. It is being treated with radiation, which has made it impossible for me to attend as many movies as I used to... What in the world is a leave of presence? It means I am not going away. My intent is to continue to write selected reviews, but to leave the rest to a talented team of writers handpicked and greatly admired by me."
