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.

"Can't Take My Eyes Off Of You" / "Walk Like A Man" / "Who Loves You" from Jersey Boys (John Lloyd Young, Christian Hoff, Daniel Reichard, J. Robert Spencer and Original Broadway Cast)

Ulterior Motives: 15 years ago tonight, Jersey Boys officially opened on Broadway at the August Wilson Theatre. The four time Tony Award winning musical gave audiences an inside look at the creation of the incomparable 60's/70's singing sensations The Four Seasons with lead singer with a heavenly vocal range, Frankie Valli. Audiences were moved to singalong to "Sherry," "Big Girls Don't Cry," "Walk Like A Man," "December 1963 (Oh What A Night!)". The show went on to win Best Musical, Best Lighting Design, Best Featured Actor in a Musical for Christian Hoff's dynamic portrayal of the late Tommy DeVito and John Lloyd Young for his outstanding performance as Frankie Valli. John went on to play Frankie in the 2014 Warner Brothers film adaptation directed by Clint Eastwood. His performance of Frankie's signature tune "Can't Take My Eyes Off of You" was fabulous on film and thrilling live on Broadway. After ten plus years on Broadway, the show moved Off-Broadway to New World Stages.

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: John Lloyd Young's spin around at 1:07 followed by his stellar perf of the song's chorus is so exciting. Those vocals! We also love 3:16 to the end because those harmonies are divine.
