I make ‘favorite performance’ lists every year, and I get that these lists, more than the rest, are the most subjective one can make. Because it’s really about what you see in each performance and what you respond to; There’s no objective way to truly rate a performance as better than another.

But just listening to this song, she’s gonna go on for a lot longer than that. What an amazing talent.
