Judy and Liza should be the winners.

“I Can’t Do It Alone” isn’t even the best Catherine Zeta-Jones number in Chicago. “All That Jazz” is a better showcase for her, and “Cell Block Tango” is the movie’s showstopper, even though the eternally young Miss Zeta-Jones doesn’t dominate.
And I don’t think “Hindi Sad Diamonds” is the best, but I’m glad R5 mentioned it. It is a fantastic number.

Maybe this time is dramatic and advanced the story- cabaret is perhaps the best movie musical ever. But Liza’s voice (for me) is kind of ugly- she goes a half note flat within a a wide vibrato- and pushes rather than soars.like her mother and Streisand. Great sound pours and flows out of Judy and Barbra. Liza!s a great performer without a great voice, although she carries herself as though she has a great voice. That’s what she has not had a successful recording career. She is a performer, like Merman, but not a great singer. Judy and Barbra’s voices and artistry are for the ages.

Who forgot Bette Midler’s “Stay with Me Baby” in The Rose - absolutely gut wrenching ( of the ten offered, Liza doing “Maybe This Time” 👍👍👍👍. These are two of the BEST !

For me, it's Whitney singing Dolly's song "I Will Always Love You"
But I voted for Judy's Rainbow in WoO -- they originally were going to cut that song out of the movie! But thankfully, they changed their minds.

What’s the main criteria OP? Since we are discussing films, if you’re scoring primarily on jaw-dripping visualization and camera-work then Don’t Rain On My Parade is hard to top - it seems much less impressive now in the age of CGI, computer controlled steadi-cams and drones but the train & tugboat shots were done with a just a helicopter, an incredibly skilled camera operator and an army of people getting everting in exactly the right place at exactly the right moment.
If choreography and a supreme sense of effortless perfection are most important, then I’d go with Kelly’s Singin’ In the Rain.
If the vocal performance & emotion are paramount then I’d vote for “Somewhere Over The Rainbow.”

Oy, Tropical Nights- my case closed… had no idea how bad it got- and Whitney’s version of Always Love you is like being hit over the head with a hammer, repeatedly. Pipes without musicianship display 1. Dolly’s version much better.
