A brilliant cover of Cyndi Lauper's 1986 song (written by Billy Steinberg and Tom Kelly) by the cast of Glee, an intelligent musical comedy.

The original was amazing, but in the context of the 'Hairography' episode, the cover was extraordinarily meaningful. Tina had her first real solo with this number, and the lyrics relate well with her past and present experiences.
Cathy: I want to be like Tina when I grow up.
Tom: What have a stutter HAHAHA?!
Cathy: No, to be comfortable with who I really am, to show my true colors, to find ways to connect with those I cherish.
Tom: Wow, you're beautiful! Like a rainbow.

The season 2 finale of Amphibia. Known for two things: completely shattering the status quo, and the controversy surrounding its delay and subsequent leak.

King Andrias is evil (well we already knew), Sasha betrays Anne, Marcy had betrayed both from the beginning, King Andrias betrays all three, Marcy does more to redeem herself in five minutes than Sasha ever did during two seasons, Marcy dies (as in, out in a pickle jar by Andrias for whatever evil purpose), Sasha is stranded in Amphibia, Anne is stuck on Earth. Also Anne is in denial about Marcy's death (even though she's not dead and she doesn't know that but...).
True Colors A: *exists*
Person: Yeah Sasha betrayal was coming and we knew the King was evil but cool.
True Colors B: YES
