So, I saw a clip of "On My Own" during the extended preview that aired during Top Chef the other night, and this was my very snap judgment based on about ten seconds: Samantha Barks has a beautiful voice, but I'm mildly concerned she went for Broadway in her performance, as opposed to raw, emotional naturalism a la Hathaway and (reportedly) the others. But regardless, until the end of time we will appreciate her because she kept Taylor Swift out of this part, which would have been a big old mess. Also: Samantha looks stellar here. So well done, Eponine. Take my love, for love is everlasting.
