great show last night....every number had super merit, but IMHO a performance by Ariana Debose knocked me out.
i had never seen her, did not know her work, never even heard of her....but boy, i will NEVER forget her. she sang
'a lot of livin' to do' from bye bye birdie....yeah, i know the song, but her rendition was the best thing all night.
she has the star quality that a star needs, and she has it. can't wait to see her next. did not think of BROADWAY BACKWARDS
as an introduction, i love seeing my favorites in the unique setting, but this was quite an introduction & audition, too!
