Dancing on Ice Video
Oh boy, I can't remember the last time I was that nervous, I was physically shaking on my sofa. I can only imagine how Rachel must have felt having to perform such a demanding song in front of a TV audience of millions and in high definition too!
Well I needn't have worried, Rachel was SPECTACULAR!!
Performing on a raised platform - usually used by presenters Phil and Holly - Rachel looked sensational. She was beautifully green and dressed in full witch costume. Not actually the costume she wears for Defying Gravity in the show but my favourite, the one she wears in Act 2.
Her performance was simply breath-taking, hitting notes that most can only dream about and emitting every emotion Elphaba is feeling perfectly. As Emily says in her comment, Rachel's ability to act in such a pressurised and totally different environment to usual all by herself shows her true talent.
There might have been the tinniest wobble on one word near the start of the song but it was barely noticeable and what followed was so mind-blowingly incredible that quite frankly, who cares?
MASSIVE congratulations to Rachel for a spellbinding performance that will surely have all Dancing on Ice viewers visiting the Apollo Victoria very soon.
They've already started visiting the blog, with a record number of hits recorded since Rachel's phenomenal appearance on prime time TV. Seems like the artichoke stole the show.
I've just added this lovely picture of Rachel with Phillip "Silver Fox" Schofield I found on her Twitter page.
