Boop boop be doop, boop!

I don't really go to YouTube that often, but I like it because when I do, I'm usually looking for something obscure and can find it. Like, when I was looking for some old Betty Boop cartoons because I had a conversation with my 3 year old daughter about her and realized I didn't know what I was talking about because I'd never actually seen a cartoon. Or when I want to go see a routine from So You Think You Can Dance to share because I just loved it so much. It's grainy, so you won't get the full effect because their faces really portray a lot of the emotion of this piece, but it gives me chills. It's from a previous season and was nominated for an Emmy, so the dancers came back on last night's results show to perform it again and it was even more powerful. And there's a part in the opening credits from the routine and every time I see it, I am reminded of the powerful emotion from the performance. I just think it's that good. And it makes me happy, in a sad kind of way, to see it. And share it with you.

Love this song! I like how they interpreted it. Now I'm going to go buy it on iTunes and try to recreate this choreography in my living room :)
