Liza‘s father is Vincente Minnelli, who was Judy‘s second husband. Lorna and Joey are the children of her third husband and manager, Sid Luft. The three kids haven’t always gotten along in the past, but they are reportedly on good terms right now.

    I don’t care for her voice personally. Too husky or something.

    Amazing talent. She truly got a set of pipes.

    I can’t for the life of me figure out why they would ask her to sing to perform this song at the Oscars. It was embarrassingly awful.

    let’s spell MINNELLI correctly, shall we??

    When they said Judy’s children would be present, I thought it was because they or at least her daughters would be performing it.

    Well at least she wasn’t flying around the place on a trapeze for once. I agree with the other comments. Weird choice to have Pink sing this classic pretty song, her husky voice just doesn’t fit. She should stick to singing about how badass she thinks she is.

    I wanna know when it’ll be available on iTunes!

    This was an embarrassment to Judy Garland’s original. This is just one of those songs NO ONE should attempt to sing…period. Pink is out of her league in attempting to bring justice to this song. Her voice cracks and goes silent at certain points, and she doesn’t have the vocal style or power to sing it the way Judy Garland did. In my opinion, they should have played this video on the big screen behind the stage –
    Had they done so, the song would have kept it’s dignity.

    Thought she sounded great. I’d LOVE to hear all the haters belt it out any better….. just saying. That being said no one will ever do it better than Judy Garland.

    She Absolutely Rocked! Says:

    Some of you folks need hearing aids. Pink’s voice was spectacular! She did an excellent job with that song. Her voice is not too “husky.” It’s powerful. Also, she has the perfect voice for rocking out. Seriously, I can’t believe any of you could have the audacity to come here and attempt criticize Pink’s singing. My oh my! I’ve heard it all!

    What?! Says:

    @Disappointed: An embarrassment? OMG! Judy Garland is gone and her version of the song is old. I was very pleased with Pink’s performance. Pink sings “effortlessly” every single time — and that was live.

  14. 14
    Disappointed Says:

    The song is a classic and should be left unsung by all. Those who like the original classics can appreciate them for what they were. Pink may be fine for her brand of music, but she is out of place in her attempt to do justice to a song that is a classic and that was done by one of the greatest entertainers in movies and music. Pink is NO match for Judy Garland. If you watched the video I linked to, you would have heard Judy Garland’s daughter make a profound statement, “There’s one song that truly belongs ONLY to my mother’….I agree.

    FussyB Says:

    Pink was stunning! Can’t sing? Pulleaze !! You can’t compare Judy Garlands version of this song and Pinks , each has its own place in time!

  16. 16
    uh huh Says:

    @FussyB: I agree with YOU! I loved Garland, but I love Pink too, and Pink’s version did not irritate me one bit, bc at the end of the day, she’s still an excellent singer.

    Nancy Says:

    As a musician, Pink ‘s voice was the wrong choice. While the song requires vocal power, it also requires dynamics, not silent pauses. Judy’s voice was emotional, Pink’s is not. These new singers mistake melismata and loudness for emotion most of the time.
    Surely in all of Hollywood, there was a better singer for such a momentous tribute. I’m sure Liza and Lorna felt the same way.

    Methinks a few of you bloggers basically don’t like Pink at all. If that’s the case, your arguments are MOOT!

    Diedre Says:

    So, nobody should sing ‘Over the Rainbow’ ever again now that Judy is gone? Ridiculous.
    Pink rocked it. She is an amazing lady with an incredible voice…a true performer.
    The dimwits passing judgment while hiding behind their computer screen scarfing pork rinds and slamming Red Bull need to get their eyes and ears checked.

    She was great. Loved the tone of her voice.

    When I peruse the comments section on these things I always try to keep in mind that old saying about opinions being like ___holes….
    That said, it seems the majority of us realize an excellent performance when we hear it, and Pink’s was just that. If there is one singer today that can tackle any genre with ease it’s Pink. And tonight, she did what she does best; she gave us a stunning performance worthy of the standing ovation she received.

    Disappointed Says:

    Oh my!! You accuse others of ‘passing judgment’ then you do the same in stating ‘The dimwits passing judgment while hiding behind their computer screen scarfing pork rinds and slamming Red Bull need to get their eyes and ears checked.’

    There is NO need to get into a knock- down- drag- out over this, we all have a right to state our opinions. Let’s do so with respect shall we? Attacking and belittling others will certainly not help matters.

    Nancy, when you said ” Judy’s voice was emotional, Pink’s is not.” you nailed it. Thank you for your insight.
    I don’t think anyone here stated Pink cannot sing, that isn’t the issue. Neither of Judy’s daughters have sung ‘over the rainbow’ {to my knowledge}, and rightly so. I reiterate the statement from one of Judy’s daughers, “There’s one song that truly belongs ONLY to my mother”.
    Pink does a fine job in her own style of music, which is rock. She just doesn’t fit with the musicals of the 30s, 40s and 50s when MGM was in its heyday and musicals were wildly popular. That era has past, some things are better left untouched. One day, Pink’s fans will understand and appreciate wanting to keep things original and untouched.

    Pink has an amazing voice and for a lot of the things she does there is no topping her. But she falls into this thing that sounds like she’s trying to prove something with the gymnastics.

    If you listen to the Garland version from the movie, the song just comes out of her like she’s breathing – effortless, wistful, her singing totally supports the lyric.

    It’s not a question of Pink having the chops, or the emotion. I just kept thinking “Just sing the song already! You don’t have to prove anything to us!” That reverse yodel thing was interesting the first 1000 times I heard it, but it’s not speaking to me anymore.

    Even Garland in her later years, didn’t sing it with same ease as in the movie. Voices and styles change. But you can over do the gymnastics, physical and emotional.

    I can’t believe she was chosen to perform such an epic and beautiful song. Now she’s a good singer when it comes to her “badass” don’t mess with me style , she was just not fit for such a pretty and feminine song. Her voice is just harsh and sounded strained. You shouldn’t have to push so hard on such a whimsical song.
