    She got off to a nervous start, but finished strong icon_biggrin.gif

    It looked like her breath was off when she began and her voice and projection was weak. Only after the break in the song was she able to get it together. Of course, a lot more is expected of her this time.

    Interesting that she chose a song that Elaine Paige is so closely tied to.

    Her support was not there to start with, but kicked in, especially after about 3.40. The voice really does have a shine to it, but she does, I think, need to go back and spend a bit of work on making sure that the breath is right under it. It was in the earlier recordings of Cry me a River which has been on the net, but she stopped singing for a few years, and it would be worth spending a month or two sorting that out or she won´t be able to sing musicals as there are 8 performances a week.

    I read it was good enough to get her into the finals this Saturday. Best of luck to her....icon_biggrin.gif

    One of the acts in this semi-final was a synchronized dance group. They obviously had to work very hard to perfect their routine. I think it was really bad luck for them to be competing in this year against her.

    Yes, she was off at the beginning
    That song is difficult to start because it starts in an odd key
    I knew she was going to do that song
    just because Elaine Page is so identified with it .... she had said she wanted to be like Elaine Page the last time she was on
