- The even bigger deal: she’s singing the entire album, front to back, including a stirring recitation of the UPC code and a special ballad about the shrink-wrap
- If you’re lucky: she might perform some of the unique covers she’s recorded in the last few years, including her takes on Arcade Fire, Kanye West, and Metallica
- Really?: yup, she made Metallica sexy
- Movies that made you say, “Whoa, that’s Macy Gray!”: Training Day, The Paperboy, Spider-Man, For Colored Girls
- Macy’s guilty pleasure: Britney Spears’ Blackout album, which she sometimes plays before her shows<p>
