From 1988: Lea Salonga Auditions For MISS SAIGON

Lea Salonga, 17 years old, auditions with Claude-Michel Schonberg for the leading role of Kim in Miss Saigon.

Not much can be said about this clip, other than to direct you to watch the reactions of the three men standing at the other piano. They are, left to right, Nicholas Hytner, Cameron Mackintosh, and Alain Boublil. And I think you can tell what they were thinking: We've found our Kim.

(If you have the chance to see Miss Saigon, go! It is my favorite musical.)

Do you see Kim's face?
