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.

"Rock Island" from The Music Man (Hugh Jackman)


Ulterior Motives: It might be a minute or two before we see Tony winner Hugh Jackman's spin on the legendary Harold Hill in Broadway's revival of The Music Man now that they announced previews will begin in December 2021. However, a few years back Jackman explained how special the musical was in his young acting career on Jay Leno's late night show. The greatest showman also celebrated his birthday yesterday! We can't wait to see you in River City, Hugh!

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: The triple threat wowed the crowd singing all 8 traveling salesmen parts in the opening number of the musical. 2:36 - 2:44 is our ultimate moment as Hugh masterfully maneuvers the fast paced Meredith Willson lyrics. Did Jay Leno predict the future at 2:53!?
