Given that tonight’s episode of The Originals centered around a fabulous masquerade, the music was totally on point for the Vampire Diaries spin-off. We knew that we were in for some major moments between Klaus (Joseph Morgan), Rebekah (Claire Holt), and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), but we weren’t bargaining for all the juicy drama that we were presented with.

And the vampire-filled gala delivered numerous memorable musical moments during tonight’s episode, and we’ve got them all here for your enjoyment. This is perhaps the best music usage of The Originals thus far, and we can’t get enough. But beyond the party, there was plenty of drama on the streets of New Orleans — giving us some of the most intense moments of the show yet.

Check out the music from tonight’s episode below and then hit the comments and let us know which moment was your favorite.

Underneath my innocence
