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.

"Evil Woman" (Jackie Hoffman, Mary Testa and Original Broadway Cast)


Ulterior Motives: Prudy Pingleton. Grandma Addams. Mrs. Teavee. Emmy Award Nominee for Feud as the scene stealing Mamacita. It is the hilarious Jackie Hoffman's birthday! The incredible funny lady has appeared on Broadway in Hairspray, Xanadu, The Addams Family, On the Town and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It was in 2007's Broadway roller skating extravaganza Xanadu that paired with Mary Testa delivered this Electric Light Orchestra tune and made it completely her own with all the amazing Jackie-ness only she could! Those riffs!

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Without a doubt 1:37 - 1:47. We love an improvised moment with Jackie. Honorable mention goes to 2:00 - 2:07, when framed by feathered fans she rightfully so, channels Cher.
