Well, two weeks ago Stacey Tookey used this cool song, “Jar of Hearts”, in her routine for Billy and Kathryn.  I liked it a ton, looked it up afterward, and had trouble seeing it anywhere outside youtube.  Well, that’s because it turns out the singer, Christina Perri, was a waitress up until two weeks ago, and now because of the show, she’s on the itunes top twenty and has sold a hundred thousand copies of her song.  And now that I know it’s up on itunes, she’s going to sell one more.   She sits at the piano and sings, accompanied by two violins, a cello and an unseen backing singer.  Allison and Neil dance in the contemporary standard – flowy white.  She’s in a floaty dress, he’s got an open shirt to whip around in.  The costumes might as well have been culled from previous performances.

Anyhow, I really like the song, although the studio version is a bit better than the live one.  I love the backstory, though.  Christina Perri, you’re talented (if a little hyperbolic.)  I hope you can make this work, particularly without losing yourself in the process.
