Number 23. Just seeing the pic makes me uncomfortable. It's so horrible, but so strong and beyond brilliant acting. She will be missed. How will Meredith deal with losing her person I wonder.

This show needs to end. Or if it continues, at the very least the in-house band needs to stop ruining classic songs with their horrible make-overs.

Cristina sings "Like a Virgin" during a procedure

I would very much prefer if she sang "Like a Surgeon", by Weird Al Yankovic.
