Bettye LaVette: Love Rain O'er Me
Here's a display of understated power unlike anything you'll ever see on American Idol (not exactly a safe house for understatement). All from a Metamucil-aged granny who could otherwise be watching reruns of Sanford & Son under an afghan at home ... if she weren't so goddam cool! Watch as Roger Daltry and Pete Townsend shake their heads in disbelief (and that may be a tear in Townsend's eye, there was in mine).
And, yes, in fact old people DO rule!
