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 Confrontation" from Les Miserables (Joshua Colley and John Rapson)

Ulterior Motives: It was incredibly difficult to only pick one video for our Easter Bonnets article for the year 2015. We found a reason to highlight this other BC/EFA 2015 benefit entry!

Seventeen years ago today in 2003, the original production of Les Misérables ended its monumental Broadway run. As the show sings "for love is everlasting" which is fitting because since its 2003 closing there have been two Broadway revivals in 2006 and 2014. The latter showcased the talent of the two stars of our Hot Clip of the Day. Joshua Colley, one of two of the revival's original Gavroches at just 13, sings "The Confrontation" as Valjean with company member John Rapson as Javert.

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: Colley's acting FROM. THE. JUMP. This performance is rich. It's very difficult to pick only one moment but 1:33-1:44 is out of this planet amazing.
