  5. Her best work is her rendition of Oh Holy Night with the German symphony. Wow. She is amazing!

  12. Hope CBS eventually posts the names of the operas; I can't for the life of me remember what Lyric #2's music is from, and it's driving me nuts ... got the other 9 though!

  13. I love her, but those "lyrics" could have been written by high school students. She did a wonderful job with some really cringe-worthy material. That old Gilligan's Island episode did a better job.

  19. Opera snob here: she sounded great.
    The Pagliacci/Miley Cyrus twerking one was superb!
