Notre Dame de Paris - Musical Dannii!

I vividly remember seeing Dannii perform in Notre Dame de Paris. I was living in Germany at the time and I flew into London on the pretence of visiting a friend but really with the sole purpose of seeing Dannii strut her stuff on stage. It was quite bizarre sitting in the audience for the simple fact that I recognised so many faces. I experienced the same phenomenon at Dannii's "Hits & Beyond" live spectacular last year and at Kylie's "Showgirl Homecoming". Minogue fans are nothing if not dedicated!

From the moment the curtain went up, I was transfixed by Dannii's amazing talent and otherwordly beauty. Dannii's years of training on Young Talent Time really showed, she knew how to communicate with the audience with the skill of Broadway veteran. However, the most satisfying part of the entire performance was the strength and range of Dannii's voice. She really belted out the ballads and remained note perfect.

I have always hoped that Dannii's performance would one day be released on CD or DVD. That looks increasingly unlikely but thanks to the lovely Bruno, we can listen to Dannii's stunning live rendition of "Live For The One I Love". This performance gives me shivers. I hope you all enjoy it.

What an awful dirge! Though Dannii does sing it rather well - if she put that much effort into singing her own material (by actually promoting it: singing it live and doing club PA's etc) then she might not be seen as such a joke...

I saw notre dame de paris without dannii and it was very weak. we walked out before the interval. Someone I know who is a big minogue fan went to see Dannii and she was ill that night or something like that.
