If you ever thought it was impossible to feel emotions other than jealousy or lust while watching The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, think again.
A Great Big World’s Ian Axel reduced us to tears with his touching performance of the duo’s smash hit “Say Something” during last year’s show. Yes, we did feel a little weird about getting sappy while supermodels walked up and down the runway in lingerie but no,we don’t regret a single tear.
Have you heard the version that features Christina Aguilera?! That song would make even the strongest, most hairiest, the most manly of men weep tears of loneliness.
ANDPOP’s Simon Mohos caught up with A Great Big World’s Ian and Chad Vaccarino when they last hit Toronto. The New York City-based duo go Way Back When and spill on their first kisses, the posters that were plastered all over their childhood bedrooms, and their first conversation. We also recreate Ian’s bar mitzvah video just because.
