Her singing actually stresses me out it sounds so bad .
Please Lisa give up that singing career you sound like a rejected female Bob Dylan.

Not great. I do think she can sing better than that though. She's making a conscious decision to take that approach.

If that song don't convince you, she has many others that will on that CD , taken a good listen, and block out of your mind that she is Elvis' daughter, and you will wish you had a judgement seat on the Gong Show if she were there.

And I think I heard Jools say, over the applause, that he will be chatting with her on the Friday broadcast.

Just saw and heard (unfortunately) it and I know it's Elvis' child but thruth be told, she can't sing period. And it's always suicide music she's singing and indeed she has no stage presence. I wish it was different but alas.

No I was expecting someone who can sing, very simple. What did you think was brilliant about it?
Did you hear Neil Sedaka? Now that was singing.

Despite my hatred for Laughter In The Rain (don't ask me why, no idea!), Sedaka sang very well and is in remarkable voice for his age - one of the very few singers whose actual sound has barely changed as he reaches old age. The extremities of his range are no longer as assured, but other than that he is as good as ever. What's more, he still performs in the main with just a piano - there's nowhere to hide as a vocalist with such bare accompaniment. Compare that to Elvis who, when more than thirty years younger than Sedaka, was hiding under virtually a complete orchestra and still wasn't coming out sounding good.

As I've said elsewhere, Sedaka's performance style is not for everyone and can be somewhat saccharine, but he always seems to be enjoying himself on stage and, without doubt, is one of the most versatile pop songwriters we have ever seen. Off to see him next Wednesday at the Royal Albert Hall - hoping for a good time.
