Given that David A.'s blood is 98% schmaltz to begin with, we probably could have saved a few minutes and just given him immunity for Inspirational Week. That said, the Robbie Williams songemotional but not sappyis a fine choice, and David doesn't oversing it (OK, he doesn't OVER over-sing it). Though it kills my cynical soul to say it, it's a good, affecting performance. There, I said it. Now excuse me while I go kick a puppy to make up for it.
