She certainly has one of the purest soprano voices I have heard in the role, and I'm no expert in German, but her acting seems to be good.

I think:

Kate Reinders, Helen Dallimore and Jennifer Laura Thompson are underrated.

And

Megan Hilty, Kristin Chenoweth and Annaleigh Ashford are overrated.

Overrated: Megan Hilty, Cheno(much as I love her) and Annaleigh
Underrated: Dianne Pilkington definately, I quite like her.
Lucy Durack: I am shamelessly name-dropping but at the same time being the Aussie Glinda she doesn't get much attention from other fans. Having seen her live her comedic timing and her singing is on the mark. She can hit all the high notes too.

I agree with Pilkington being underrated, I saw her late last year and I found her just as good if not better than Chenoweth. I don't see why everyone loves Kristin so much more than the other glindas.

I really, really enjoy Kendra's performances, from what I've seen on youtube. She's just amazing, and she is totally what I always expected Glinda to be.

I also really like Annaleigh's "Thank Goodness", but I'm not sure about her other stuff.

I'll also add that I adore the Australian Lucy Durack.
When I saw her live, she was fabulous, and delivered all her lines gorgeously.. AND her speaking voice is PERFECTLY Glinda. Seriously.

Check out her Popular

I hate to disagree, but IMHO Kate Reinders is absolutely awful in every role she touches. With that said, Helen and JLT adorable :)

I thought she was good as Dainty June and I'd go as far as to say she was truly excellent as Glinda at the "Yellow Brick Road Not Taken" event.

One of the most vocally perfect Glindas is Annalene Beechey. YouTube her. Her soprano is absolutely flawless.

Oh God, her Dainty June was AWFUL in almost every single way. LAL was perfection in that role.

The stuff I've seen of her, her acting is wonderful. So realistic.
