    I love Ben Folds. Thanks for posting this MJ. It popped up on my facebook and I lost it before I had a chance to go listen.

    I can’t wait for the next Singoff just so I can watch him judge. Classiest and most fun of all these singing competition shows.

    Ben Folds is amazing as a judge, and I dig almost all of his work.

    I have no idea who this is. But it sounds like a song from Rent. ;)

    Love, love, LOVE Ben. He was the main reason I checked out the show to begin with and ended up liking it(and his witty judging! Please idol get judges like Ben who have a clue!)

    I’ve seen the man in concert three times(seeing him in October with an orchestra for a fourth) and I’m consistently blown away every single time by this man’s skills.

    Love the song as well. :)
