Post Heather Headley's rendition of "Memory"
I was a bit disappointed that this was the only "Cats" song performed, but I really enjoyed the performance, Athough Heather Headley makes a few funny faces.

Thanks for posting, I heard about this! Her facial expressions were indeed hilarious, but what a a voice. Did she ever play Grizabella?

I'm 99% sure she's never played Grizabella, but I COULD be wrong... ;)
I watched the whole show yesterday and was also amused by her funny faces...although at least they were better than Nicole Scherzinger's occasional "pop-izing" of notes in Don't Cry For Me Argentina :x

Not a fan of Heather's rendition. Her voice on this sounds wrong. No real emotion and some weird faces as well as sounds!

I agree. It just didn't work for me. :(

I watched the whole show on youtube and to me Heather Headley's performance was one of the only song well performed. Though I agree that her jaw movments did not really pass with the mood of the song ... :)

No Comment on the rendition. However, I must point out that vocalization of a song's lyrics sometimes creates facial movements (benign to extreme) to facilitate the consonants and vowels. Some singers can do this and not detract from the presentation, while others cannot. In this video, the latter is true....
