12 Days of Christmas, Day 2: 2 Music Videos

The Christmas season is a time of gifts given and received, a time of family and kings, frankincense and myrrh. In keeping with that idea, these 12 days of Christmas I offer some little trinkets that have been special to me this year.  I hope in different ways they will bring you Christmas joy and wonder.

Maria Aragon
Last spring a l0 year old girl from Canada taped herself singing "Born This Way", a new Lady Gaga song that had only just hit the charts.  It was a huge sensation -- to date it's had more than 48 million views -- and what's more a truly moving performance.  

Glee Sings Adele
Whether or not you love or watch Glee, when the stars align their performances just leap off the screen.  So it was with this recent number, which mashes up pop star Adele's great songs "Rumour Has It" and "Someone Like You".  If you love great choreography, I have two words for you: shoulder rolls.
