Singular Simpsation

For Throwback Thursday yesterday (May 30), Jessica Simpson tweeted a link to a video of her performing “The Music and the Mirror” during a high school production of A Chorus Line. And it’s really good!

I have two younger sisters who were big into musical theater, so when we were growing up I had to go to all of their school productions, which means I’m very familiar with that particularly grating stage kid style of singing. You know, the hammy, over-emotive, uber-Broadway thing. And while Simpson certainly shows shades of that here, her voice is strong and you can tell she was a true talent.

Watch the video up top, and head below to see her tweet calling it “The ultimate.”
