They have a hit show together on the Las Vegas Strip, but Donny and Marie Osmond’s old sibling rivalry is still simmering. Marie came in third place on the fifth season of Dancing with the Stars but bragging rights belong to Donny, who won the show’s ninth season. Now, Donny and Marie Osmond open up on the important things in life such as Elvis, time travel, the Powerpuff Girls and, yes, even Justin Bieber.

If I weren’t an entertainer
Donny: Out of a job.
Marie: Sane!

In my next life I want to come back as…
Donny: Elvis.
Marie: A spirit. After thousands of hours spent on plane rides and bus tours, it would be great to just “appear” wherever I needed to be next.

My most recurring dream is…
Donny: A nightmare of dancing with Marie onstage. Oh, wait! I guess I’m living the dream.
Marie: That I could actually get enough sleep to have a dream.

If I could be any superhero I’d be…
Donny: Captain Purple
Marie: The Powerpuff Girls—all three of them. It would be great for me as a multitasking single mom.

If I owned a time machine I’d…
Donny: Go back and forth in time, duh!
Marie: Never be late again.

The person I would want to play me in a movie about my life would be…
Donny: Justin Bieber.
Marie: Kathy Griffin. I know she does an imitation of the way I laugh in her comedy act, which is hysterical.

My favorite hangout in Las Vegas is…
Donny: Anywhere in the shade.
Marie: Home with my kids.

When I order from the room service menu at 3 a.m. I get…
Donny: Heartburn.
Marie: Frustrated because they don’t deliver to my home.
