  1. I really liked the lady singing it. She really got in to the song. I feel like she made it hers. It was like she owned that song. Though there were parts like in her runs how she would pause. I didn’t like that. Overall it was great in conclusion.

  2. I really liked how she sang this song live. It seemed like she really got into it. I didn’t feel she was smiling as much as she should have, but she still did at some points. She has great tone, and she kept it for the whole song. It might just be me but I felt that the song was cut short, in a way. Otherwise, this was a great performance by her.

  3. I very much enjoyed this performance. Brenda Lee sang this song very upbeat and joyful. It was a fun listen and entertaining. The only thing I wasn’t crazy about was how she would cut some notes short and pause. If she held them longer I would of enjoyed it a tad more. I also really like the saxophone solo and the overall vibe of the whole song.

  4. Brenda’s performance is great, for the most part. I like how she is positive and passionate about singing the happy, jolly song. She was so passionate, but too passionate. I personally enjoyed the song live, but she puts too much passion which makes her want to add a lot more than just a song, which i do not like. The performance is great. She made it seem like it was just her and no one else. The live performance overall was great, she did put a lot of effort and passion, which i liked very much.

  5. I really liked the way she made the song hers. She seemed like she was having some sort of fun with it. She made this song really upbeat and interesting. She didn’t seem to bore the crowd either. This version was very unique and I liked it a lot.
