Each day, the Bbox team trolls YouTube for the hot clip—sometimes it's a brand-new moment and sometimes it's a throwback to an oldie but goodie. No matter what praise hands are shot up, pearls are clutched and the repeat button is hit.

"The Wizard and I" from Wicked (Bonnie Milligan)

Ulterior Motives: We have a real treat for you this Friday. Tomorrow is National Vision Board Day. Without skipping a beat, the lyric "and I just had a vision almost like a prophecy" came into our heads immediately. Gather your favorite magazines, scissors, glue, markers and while vision boarding your goals, hopes and dreams this weekend why not use the Wicked Broadway Cast album as the soundtrack to your day? Additionally, before you start vision boarding, take five minutes and twenty eight seconds to completely fall in love with this outstanding performance by Head Over Heels' Bonnie Milligan of "The Wizard and I." Bonnie's acting choices are as marvelous as her effortless riffs.

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Choosing one moment was VERY difficult. We would be absolutely remiss if we didn't applaud the commitment of Mr. Matt Doyle's special guest appearance from this coheadlined cabaret with Bonnie. We love a prop moment. However as we shift back to Bonnie, 1:56 - 2:09 her acting choices were so honest and then ends the phrase with her beautiful, rich alto. Then the acting beats from 2:53 - 3:26 ending on her gorge vibrato on "de-greenify you." But our ultimate moment that gave us goosebumps is 4:33 - 4:44. Go on and push play to see why we're having a celebration all to do with Bonnie!
