I’m cringing while I’m listening! lol She looks hot but she sounds pretty awful. Sounds like a little kid putting on a play for her family just very average if that makes much sense. Just not digging it too much. Maybe some other parts are better?

# 2

OMG Amazing …

# 3

vanessa this fantastic
loved the video
I’m proud to be your fan

# 4

WOW. She really butchered that song! Too bad… it’s a great number of the show.

# 5

so freakin’ good. great job, nessa!!!!

# 6

Her voice was never right for Mimi! I don’t like it. Sorry “Vaneesa” fans lol

# 7

2mrw she will be even better!

# 8

how can people say shes good. That by general standards is **** let alone by theatre standards.

# 9

That was really bad. Sorry, but she can’t sing. I thought on Broadway you actually had to be talented. I can’t even bare to listen to the entire thing.

i can’t be more proud :’)

She sounded amazing on Light my Candle. Should’ve posted that instead of this lq vid. You or your interns or watevers are morons.

bad audio. wish i could;ve gone and seen it this weekend :(

What imbeciles some of you are. I was there. This is a bootleg video and not a very good one and frankly it doesn’t represent the show well at all.

So unless you were there I’d stop my commentary based on a poor video and wait and see if there actually is a better one.

She sounds so out of tune and just all out of place


What does the poor picture quality have anything to do with her bad voice?

LOVE light my candle!!!! please people upload more to youtube, and i heard she killed! Goodbye Love, and without you!! please JJ upload those!! they are the best ones!! and to all you V haters…well she’s in front of 17,000 people its her first night on stage since she was 12!! give the girl a break to me she was AMAZING!!!

peggy 13
you were there
how was it?

Not EVERY TALENTED broadway actor can knock out Out Tonight. It has high notes, tons of movement.
We can’t forget the kind of stage she’s on. The lights ARE BRUTAL. Trust me, being a dancer for 10 years, lights are what wear you out. She really pulled through.
‘Light My Candle’ was much more pleasant because she wasn’t dancing all over the place. I’m sick of this negativity towards this girl. She works a lot harder than most of you and a TON more talent than you. Not everyone can just jump on the stage at the Hollywood Bowl.
Just sayin.

wow. that. was. bad.

She’s got more guts than me to get up in front of that amount of people, so good for her, and people always sound different when they sing live.

Someone who was there said that at the end they gave the cast a standing ovation and got a encore to sing ‘ Seasons of Love’ again, so obvioulsy the people at the show enjoyed itPlease post ‘ Seasons of lover ‘ JJ that’s a great song.

Wonder where Zac was sitting? Bet he could’nt keep his eyes of her.

Amazing job Vanessa! Best of luck for the other two shows :D You are awesome!


Thank you. Everyone is like “OH MY GOD SHE IS SO BAD” all over Twitter because of this video this moron decided to put up with his crap LQ camera.
