What I am most impressed by is that Michelle absolutely avoids delivering a note for note copy of Barbra's performance. Amazingly she refrains from lingering indulgently on some notes mid-line. She sings the big show-off lines, without overly adorning the notes.

I watched the clip of her "opening night" version of "Don't Rain On My Parade." She just made up a whole bunch of noted and rhythms, ignoring a good deal of the syncopations and melody that Styne wrote. Never mind imitating Stresiand - she essentially made up the song. Why would anyone be impressed by that?
