Recently I decided my favorite YouTube genre is “teenagers getting pulled on stage to perform with their idols and melting everyone’s faces off,” and so here are some videos in that vein that you may enjoy

Here is a 14-year-old boy who loves the musical "Waitress" and gets to perform "She Used to Be Mine" on stage and it's so powerful that the cast behind him is visibly unsettled 

Here is a 17-year-old girl who loves "Wicked" and gets to perform "For Good" with Kristin Chenoweth and manages to achieve harmonies so pure that Chenoweth looks as if she thinks she's been pranked 

And here is a boy who convinces Bruce Springsteen to let him duet on "Growin' Up" and you see the kid literally grow up in front of you but also Bruce briefly becomes a teen again and your heart explodes
