!! OMG, plug your ears: Jewel sings ‘Foolish Games’ !!

Don’t ask me why I was watching Jewel‘s really terrible 1998 SNL performance of “Foolish Games,” but I was, and I felt the need to inflict it on all of you.
Make sure you make it to the truly agonizing ad lib part that begins around 2:42.
To be fair, everyone sounds a little worse than usual on SNL, but wow. If this was American Idol, I’m not sure even Paula could be nice.

    This is Not from SNL — It is from the Tonight Show. Still horrible either way.

  4. always considered that slag devoid of any talent. this only helps to confirm it.

  5. Having liked the radio edit of this song, I actually bought this album back in the day. It continues to rank as the #1 worst CD purchase of my entire life. She is absolutely and completely talentless. This video is good proof of that.

  6. I’m less disturbed by the quality of her singing than the drunken crazy exgirlfriend faces she’s rocking through most of the song. I especially like the transition between tearful little girl and “I’m gonna set your car on fire” psycho.

  7. I got about 2:30 into it and was thinking, “He’s crazy, she actually sounds great.” Then she got to the end of the second verse, and I died. What the hell was she thinking?

  8. damn you!!!!!
    my ears are bleeding!
