I agree that Lea will always be Kim... and lots of other Kim's will always be compared to her.

I've heard both Lea and Jo sing, Lea on the OLC and Jo live and I think both are just great. Different actress brings different qualities to the character.

But I'd go for Lea, if I really have to pick. It's tough not to love the original. :wink:

I'd go for Lea Salonga. I've never seen either artist performing live and only heard Lea through OLC, and Jo through a few music clips. But I like Lea better in projecting's Kim's image, she sounds very sweet, and innocent, and that's how I would picture Kim as a character in the beginning, and how strong and emotional she was, when she's protecting Tam.

Though, somehow, I'm naturally partial to the original cast, even if the latter singers might have better voices. Or maybe, I just like Lea's voice better, but I thought Miss Saigon was one of her best roles, if not, most memorable.

I would still prefer Lea Salonga to portray Kim.

Joanna was excellent, but Lea will always be the best in that role for me.

Lea Salonga. I wept the first time I saw her as Kim.

Dear "Miss Saigon" Fans,

I voted for Joanna Ampil, but that may be because my favorite "Miss Saigon" soundtrack is the Complete Symphonic Recording, on which Joanna portrays Kim.

Thanks in advance for your replies.
