Vera Farmiga Wows With CABARET's 'Maybe This Time' On BATES MOTEL
One of the most unexpectedly awesome musical moments on TV in 2014 arrived last night, coming from one of the unlikeliest sources - the newest episode of A&E's hit PSYCHO-inspired horror-themed drama series BATES MOTEL.
Show star Vera Farmiga launched into a memorably passionate and emotionally enacted rendition of Kander & Ebb's "Maybe This Time" from the hit 1972 movie musical CABARET, there performed by Liza Minnelli, in a powerful a capella take.
Farmiga sang the song as part of a community theater SOUTH PACIFIC audition on the ep, titled "Shadow Of A Doubt", which also featured son, Norman (Freddie Highmore), observing the audacious audition in understandable awe.
After all, not since Mama Rose has there been a maternal figure quite like Norma - and she's showing off yet another reason why!
BATES MOTEL airs on Mondays at 9 PM on AMC.
