Dream Come True
"Polly Dunning, a teacher at a school for disadvantaged boys, had written us a heartfelt letter saying Jay-Z was a role model for her students. As luck would have it, he was in Australia opening for U2, so we asked him to surprise her kids. They erupted in joy when he walked into the school courtyard, and Polly had one of the best reactions I've ever seen in my 16 years working on the show." —Tara Montgomery, supervising producer
