#2 Don’t Rain On My Parade - Sectionals
If you didn’t fall in love with Rachel Berry even a little bit during this number, you were never going to. Everything about this performance was spot on and breath-taking: the emotion, the intensity, the vocals. In a sense, this was the ultimate choice for a Rachel Berry ballad; it exemplified everything at the core of the character, celebrated it, and threw it in the audience’s faces, and for many, all we could do was sit back and watch in awe. Moreover, Don’t Rain On My Parade was the kind of anthemic, inspiring number that reflected the inner voice and ambition of many of the underdog characters.
