By now we shouldn’t be surprised when anyone decides to sing a song from ‘Les Mis’ on British reality TV. (Remember Susan Boyle? No? Let’s reminisce for a moment about everyone’s favorite dark horse.) I understand that there is only a very small subset of people who will freak out over this, in that small venn diagram of theater kids who harbor torrid desires for Harry, Zayn, Niall, Lou… why do I know their names? Anyway, this performance by Collabro is like if One Direction decided to show Russell Crowe how to properly sing ‘Stars’, and my God, it is heavenly. No, you’re giggling and crying all at once and it’s all so beautiful. Really, the only way this could be any more of a guilty pleasure is if Channing Tatum burst out onto the stage with a puppy or a baby (or both), and one of these guys sort of looks like Magic Mike if you squint, so we’re all good here.
