One of the highlights of the concert showed just how spontaneous this series is. Jessie and Seth were talking about how the concert was completely live and how anything could happen. Suddenly, Seth started the opening notes of "On My Own" from Les Miserables and Jessie launched into her best Eponine. Neither of them rehearsed it, or even had the music, but they got through the whole thing brilliantly with Jessie claiming that all she could hear in her head was Lea Salonga!
