A confession and a song

I eschew reality TV in most all forms, but that kind of ended last year when I happened to catch the first episode of American Idol and I’ve watched every episode since. Most of it is pap and watching a show requires fast forwarding through almost all of it, but once in a while you get some magic moments. Here’s Fantasia’s song from last night’s show (which I got from Caroline‘s site). It was easily the best performance of the last two seasons. It wasn’t just singing it right, the way she presented it onstage made it look like it was ripped from a Broadway show. This is what you get when you totally commit to doing something creative, it’s freaking amazing.
