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.

"I'm Breaking Down" from Falsettos (Stephanie J. Block)

Ulterior Motives: The moving musical Falsettos returned to Broadway opening on October 27, 2016 starring Christian Borle, Andrew Rannells, Stephanie J. Block, Brandon Uranowitz, Betsy Wolfe, Tracie Thoms, and Anthony Rosenthal. This incredible Broadway revival bestowed Broadway audiences with an outstanding William Finn written Act One showstopper delivered by Tony winner Stephanie J. Block as Trina. The lyrics of the song explain Trina's plight perfectly.

Ultimate 🙌 🙌 moment: One ultimate moment? This song is FULL of them! It's going to be a list, how can we not! The comic timing at 1:34? Brilliant. The reaction at 2:21? Let's also not forget the phenomenal vocals throughout! As if the performance is not brilliant enough, Stephanie then delivers 4:18 - 4:22 and the clip ascends to another spectacular level when she nails that high E! Go Stephanie!!
