She wasn't last time I saw her, couple of months ago - she was completely emotionless about it. But then, she didn't impress me in the slightest, so perhaps she was having a very bad night. I've seen her in other shows and I know she's a better singer and actress than I saw in her Glinda.

The only thing I disliked about her was the squeaky, fake voice she put on. Fortunately, I've heard she's slowly making it lower and more like her normal voice.

I just saw Kate Reiders on this video when she just started to play the part of Glinda and suprisingly she wasn't as jumpy and overduing as normal. 8O

Annalene Beechey and Christina DeCicco are so underrated. It's sad.

I think that Christina is now underrated but when she was playing Glinda a lot of people knew about her. She was a very good Glinda. :D

I don't doubt that she's good, just I haven't seen her on form. I've only seen Dianne once, and that was on her 3rd ever show in the role, so she's probably eased into it a lot better by now.

When I saw her, she was dreadful right up until the last scene, when suddenly she was wonderful. Looked a lot like bad direction to me.

Overrated: Kendra(i like her but she's kinda one note through out the entire show except for popular and the worst glinda singing voice out of all of them!!), Kristen(again love her but others have proven better), JLT i was Bored to tears she is too subdued and old looking to play glinda, and Helen too old and not funny! Stacie Morgan Lewis

Luv em': MEGAN, CHRISTINA, ANNALEIGH ASHFORD, KATIE ADAMS!!!, DIANNE!!!

underrated: Katie Rose Clark, Christina (she is often forgotten),...
