The single tear at 1:16 seals it.

The original version is genuinely moving though, and a song that simply explores the pain of others is not what makes a Shut Up And Sing nomination. It's a performance that is really about the singer's moral preening that qualifies. And so Lisa Marie gets it, while her father doesn't. The best rendition, of course, is Cartman's (and Dina's).
