2014 Best Musical Performance Winner



This isn’t exactly a perfect scene within the context of the plot of Whiplash.  It has a certain Purple Rain/8 Mile quality to it that feels a bit like wish fulfillment and doesn’t really feel earned.  However, as a scene unto itself this is an awesome performance scene which combines both some blistering jazz and some very good work by the two actors involved to sort of convey a pair of complicated character turns without words.
