ONA Live: Ingrid Michaelson

The grand finale is upon us, and what better way to end this year's roundup of live videos than with a few good laughs?

To which some music critics would retort, "Laughs? Because Ingrid Michaelson's music is a joke?"

But not me! If you read my XPN festival blog, you know how and when I became a card-carrying Ingrid fan. Well, actually there's no card, but maybe there should be. One thing I love about Ingrid is her sense of humor. Another is her down-to-earth charm. In these performances of her hit "The Way I Am," both qualities just pour out of her like water out of a.....thing that you carry water around in and that thing got a hole in it and the water started pouring out.

And that does it for this year's edition of One Note Ahead Live. Like what you saw? Dislike what you saw? Wonder why your favorite wasn't included? Please send me some feedback. After all, the feedback I got last year inspired me to do this again.

Thanks for watching! We now return to your regularly scheduled One Note Ahead.
