After hearing about doggie auditions for Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill and seeing Audra McDonald sing Yahoo! Answers with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show , you might reasonably have thought that was as adorable as this week was going to get. But McDonald is having The Cutest Week Ever, and it has delivered yet again, with actual tail-waggy footage from the dog-audition event.

In this video see McDonald, the beautiful and distinguished owner of five Tonys, hold, cuddle, and kiss some of New York City's cutest puppies, hoping, just hoping, to appear onstage alongside her.
