    This performance gets me. You need to watch the whole thing. Maybe I'm imagining things, maybe not.

    No doubt, she was great. Am I right in remembering that she actually was in rehab when they shot this? Couldn't go to the grammys in person so they set up a stage to broadcast from in England.

    Don't worry, I've got it under control.

    A pity and a waste.

    Sorry, but I always thought she was over rated.

    It's a shame that she seemed to buy into the whole industry lifestyle facade. Undoubtedly she thought she could stop anytime she wanted and was surrounded by a bunch of sycophantic enablers. I feel for her parents who seemed like they tried to take her out of that lifestyle.

    Musically, when she was hitting on all cylinders she was the real deal.

    She's alright, and this is a cool performance, but I've always thought of her as a less talented, pop version of Nora Jones.
    Same Etta James/ whiskey voice.....less actual musical taste.


    Trully a shame to lose her though, its just sad. Great pipes, fun to watch.

    At least it didn't involve ping pong balls.

    Seriously? Norah Jones? Not hearing much resemblance.

    She reminded me of 'Retha at the end. The girl had a sound, and good phrasing.

    She wasn't up there being all cute and trendy - she was testifyin'.

    Maybe this will be up to TB's standards.

    Well on my list I have Eva Cassidy and Karen Carpenter at the top, then a biiigggg gap and then ... everyone else. Decent female singers are even more common than blues guit*r players with a str*t.

    It takes someone crazy special to blip my radar.

    I can't say anything negative about her. She had a talent and went somewhere with it. Sucks the way it ended. Like so many before her.

    she is one of those things you get or you don't
    she was fearless live-either she sucked or she went for it and sometimes genius and sometimes not but at least different every time.
    she had great musicians surrounding her. if you dig enough, you will find a wealth of rare b sides and demos that were brilliant.
    she had problems but she was one of the best singer / songwriters of the times. her take on the standards blew everyone away in my opinion.
    the media made her famous for all the wrong reasons but she was the real deal.
    in jazz circles, she is highly regarded as one of the best that ever was.
    her best performance is the Dingle Ireland one at the small church in 2006. doesn't get much better than that. she was hitting on all cylinders for that one.
    and yes, that his her in my avatar

    People are mighty quick to put her down.

    From a vocalist's standpoint, she was similar to Hendrix in her live performances. Both had plenty of very good and not-so-good shows, and others that were just plain amazing. Either one could be OFF or ON, but when ON some serious **** was goin' down.

    She didn't just priss around, she MEANT it.
