Jar of Hearts

by Christopher Paul on July 20, 2010

On June 30, two dancers competing on the show So You Think You Can Dance did a routine that propelled someone to stardom: it was the virtually unknown singer/performer Christina Perri. Since then, the song – Jar of Hearts – has been in the iTunes Top 20 downloads… I’m sure its on Billboard’s charts somewhere, too. I found the song by browsing the iTunes charts and, on a lark, thought her voice was good enough to pay the 99 cents. But after listening to the song a few times, I’m glad I did – I really like it.
Here’s the original version as seen from SYTYCD’s website:

She later came back to perform live and its a good performance by both Perri & the two dancers.

Entertainment Weekly already did an interview with Christina. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more from her.
