johartuk, thanks for the links. In fact, pretty much all of her performances have the same rushed tempo. Whenever she performs on TV, Twitter is inundated with complaints about her timing. But it's interesting that she seems to have had no problem before BGT, when she was in a less pressured environment -
The Power of Love, 2001
Cry Me a River, 1998
- and both of these are beautifully nuanced, as well.
For the sake of her art, she should perform ONLY in situations where she can produce these results. But Syco, and her manager, and ultimately Susan herself, have chosen big bucks over artisitic integrity.
