Agreed! I'm not wild about the original, but for Rachel, in that moment, it was the perfect choice.
Absolutely! For me this performance is right up there with "Take a Bow", and I loved how "Firework" referred to that scene with Rachel singing in her room. It really shows how far Rachel has come since the beginning of the show. Best of all, this time she sang because it's something she loves to do for herself - she wasn't singing for a guy. I cried.
