If you missed last night’s episode of ABC’s Nashville, entitled, “I Can’t Get Over You To Save My Life”, Jonathan Jackson (Avery) showed viewers just why he has those five Daytime Emmys to his name!
In the perfect vehicle to showcase his talents as an actor and singer, Jackson’s Avery who has been heartbroken over finding out that Juliette (Hayden Panetierre) had a fling with Jeff Fordham (Oliver Hudson) has been trying to cope with the betrayal through plenty of booze and sex! Only there is so much one can to do dull the pain until it finally overtakes you! And that is just what happened to Avery at the end of the episode! Finally, he realizes just how much he loves Juliette and how hurt and devastated he is by her actions.
Jackson’s Avery launches into performing the song “The Most Beautiful Girl In The World”. While Jackson is singing, the show intercuts the drama of Deacon (Charles Esten) who is still pining away for Rayna (Connie Britton) – he hit the sack with someone else too – and then there is Juliette, who caught Avery kissing another woman as she was about to tell him she is pregnant with his child! Avery still does not know! Oh, the drama!
Now watch Jackson’s touching performance in the key scene as he goes into the song after the jump! Then weigh-in! Makes you miss GH’s Lucky Spencer … doesn’t it?
