    she sang “Without words” beautifully, oceanup is always not complete.. justjared is better

  • Leah

    I ALWAYS said that Vanessa wasn’t made for singing live, and that’s just it.
    She can’t sing while dancing and moving around like that, she’s always out of breath, seems like she doesn’t even control her voice…
    I have NOTHING against Vanessa, but even if you love her, be honest, she can’t sing live. Look at her performing her songs, and you’ll see…
    She can sound good sometimes, but she’ll never be amazing in live.

    As a Rent Head, I am actually offended by this performance.

    This is the most atrocious thing i’ve heard in a very long time, and as a Renthead I’m officially, truly and deeply offended by this AWFUL interpretation.

  • Leah

    Oh, and by the way, she has never been great in live. Look at her “old” concerts, and you’ll see that, well… it’s scary.

    She ruined the song.

    Thank you.

    And I feel so bad for Johnathan Larson. He just rolled over in his grave.

    tell the truth…or be nice? gahhh. alright that wasn’t great. but hey, she’s pretty. there.

  • EmmaLC

    I don’t think you should compare her to Rosario Dawson. All the vocals in the film were digitally manipulated. Singing live is way different. Even listen to Adam Pascal live versus in the movie. He doesn’t sound the same.

    Maybe you should compare her to Daphne Rubin Vega. For all you ‘Rentheads’, she was the original Mimi.

    I was hoping this was from a show before HSM … cause the vocals arent great…

    Im sure she could sing it really well if she wasn’t running around and dancing at the same time… but oh well

    This is not good. Her phrasing’s off, she has almost no emotion, and she just flat out sounds bad. I’m almost offended by this :|

    She sounds terrible. She ruined the song. Patrick O’Neil you need to hire talented singers for Broadway.

  • all for me

    wow compared to when Rosario Dawson played Mimi sorry Vanessa but you suck!

  • Jasmine

    I’m sorry but that was just horrible. She looks the part, but definitely could not sing the part.

  • Belle

    I’m a rent-head and I am disgusted by this performance. So bad I couldn’t even finish the video. This was just upsetting to people like me.

    She sounded horrible.
    This is a disgrace to Jonathan Larson.

  • dj

    sorry, dude. i love ‘nessa but that was the worst performance i have ever seen! i’v seen better people play mimi and she has to be the worst! she looked awkward in her dancing and her movements where all over the place! sorry but she has to do better than this! that’s just NOT acceptible! terrible! sorry, V. and i’m not a hater, and u ppl can say, “she was live and she hasn’t performed in like over 5 years” or bitch about my comment, but this is from MY point of view. And i’m sorry, but all you nessa fans who say she’s amazing, she really was NOT! aknowledge the fact for once, no matter how hard it is!

    p.s. I AM SO WATCHING SUCKER PUNCH!

  • dj

    did u guys hear nicole sherzinger!? she was way better than baby v! v sucked but nic was soo funny! her voice was strong and convincing. she seemed fearless as for vanessa you couldn’t feel her presence like you could nicole’s. and v’s voice was weak as fuck! sorry, v! nicole owns you!

    -_-
    she still can’t sing. i would have hoped she’d have gotten some more training before playing such an iconic characer. Jonathan is probably cursing this performance from his grave. she ruined Mimi.

    Vanessa was bad.

    This wasn’t good at all.
    Saying that Vanessa had only ten days, was nervous etc. is a pathetic excuse.
    Her performance lacks emotion and talent and through out it you can hear the band awkwardly trying to adjust to the pitches that she is singing.
    Nicole Scherzinger killed it though.

  • EmmaLC

    I gotta agree with you there; while Vanessa was passable, Nicole was FIERCE.

    she plays mimi :)

  • N.

    She was actually pretty good!
    In HSM, she was squeaky and her voice was really high,
    but I enjoyed her singing live!
    I liked it!

  • Rent Head

    OH NO! Do I have to be tortured again by listening to this? I was there last night! ACK! HORRIBLE!

  • pceloveguitar

    mimi! :)

  • Anonymousssss

    come on dude!
    why didn’t you post the good videos where she sounded even more AMAZING!
    Srsly You posted the ONLY kinda bad video there is of her from Rent!! :/

  • Allie

    They posted these videos because at the time these hit as the show happened and I gave them to OU. Had the sound been better in another clip I would’ve sent those in.

  • candance

    uhm…hi? were you there? this is exactly how she sounded. horrible. i’ll give her credit on doing somewhat decent on the ballads, but besides that…wow, i hated it.everyone else saved the show.

  • zanessalove327

    Wow I love it! Vanessa did amazing from what I’ve heard! I wish I could have been there. :(
    I wonder what Zac thought? :)

  • RENT <3

    It was alright but she was nervous. You could tell by her voice. She will get better. The music seems to weird though like it’s not the same as the orignal. Just listen to Light My Candle. The tempo sounds weird.
