This is how you command an entire stadium full of cheering people.
Moments like this are why she was considered to be the new Streisand back in the day.
Very few own a stage like Liza.
Watch and learn. It's how it's done, kids.
The new Streisand? Wasn't Streisand the new Streisand back then? They're only 4 years apart in age.
R4. Liza has won an Oscar, three Tonys, an Emmy, British Academy Film and Television Arts and a Grammy Living Legend Award and a Grammy Hall of Fame Award. I think Liza has proven herself even if the Grammys were awarded and noncompetitive.
Maybe for really old gay men but nobody else cares about her. She's actually a bit of a joke OP.
that was Cheesy-tastic.
She was a great singer and stage presence when she was young. She could knock it out of the park without fireworks and backup dancers and other theatrics.
And Halstons costumes were Amah-zing.
That was thrilling. Thanks,OP.
I have a question that I've wanted to ask here at the DL for the longest time. I was here when everybody, including me, gorged ourselves over her marraige to David Gest. Good Times.
Ok, I'll stop beating around the bush..deep breath...
Did Liza marry her husbands knowing they were gay before she married them?
"New York, New York" is truly an original Liza Minnelli song. And as much as I like Frank Sinatra, it's not his song. He sort of mangled it. Liza does it overwhelmingly better.
R10, she did, Dorothy, she did!
Thanks for posting that OP. Sometimes I forget why I like her. I saw her live at the Winter Garden back in the 70s when she did Liza with a Z.
THIS, however, was a pull-out-all-the-stops, truly amazing performance. Even in full throat, you could hear each word distinctly. Imagine being up there and being the recipient of all that love and applause! You could practically sense the ghost of her mother up above rooting for her to pull it off.
And she did.
I loved her then. I've seen the movie Cabaret more times than I can count. I even bought the album, back in the day.
I know this is heresy, but I really this she was a much better singer in her prime than her mother ever was.
Yup, that's how it's done...
In her day no one came close. No one gave a live concert like Liza. Truly thrilling. Sadly those days are long gone. The voice is shot due to years of drug, alcohol abuse and smoking. Liza lives to perform. If she didn't have that, I think she'd die. She will continue to perform even though what she had is long gone. Bless her for that.
She's never looked taller.
The Sky Arts Channel in the UK has been broadcasting all the episodes of The Judy Garland Show and they aired the one the other day when young Liza made her first solo television appearance singing, I think, Put On A Happy Face, singing and dancing all over the place. She's amazing. I should find it on YouTube.
She should have worn heavier blush in a darker shade.
In such a big stadium with the audience so far away, she needed stronger make-up to contour her cheekbones.
She was never a better singer than her mother. Never.
She's very good at over-the-top Mama Rose type Broadway numbers like this, but doesn't usually sound that good when she attempts straightforward pop. But there's no problem with only be great at one specific type of music. When was this concert? I didn't know she was ever popular enough to do stadium concerts, she's lucky to get 5,000 at a concert now.
I just want to point out that Liza was never really considered the new Streisand because she never had the recording career component. That's not to take away from her brilliance on stage, screen, and concerts, though.
Her makeup is awesome!
I never really cared for her music, it just wasn't my taste, but recognize her talent. Always thought this was amazing. Talk about holding a HUGE arena in the palm of your hand. This amazes me.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
