First lady of song. Audience is so hipnotized you could hear a pin hitting the floor. Probably the most haunting interpretation Ella ever gave to Summertime. It's just... untoppable.

soave sia il vento
tranquila sia l'onda

^ That's gorgeous, Festat, thanks for sharing.

I'm trying to pick one favorite performance by Jeff Buckley but it's tough! I wish I had been old enough to attend one of his shows.. you can only imagine while looking at these videos what an inspiring experience it must've been.. he had such a powerful and emotional voice.
I love this one.. and he looks quite handsome there too.

And the entire set of his performance in Chicago in 1995.

The best live performance I have ever seen though, was this:

Not only I was there and was my first time seeing Radiohead but it was also such a mind-blowing show, I still get goosebumps every time I see bits of it.. the video doesn't do it any justice, I wish I could find a better one.. (this was in 2003 and security was tight hence the lack of good videos!).

I’ve wanted to do this for a while. I narrowed it down to my three favorites. I could post dozens of performances by Christina Aguilera, Alicia Keys, Kings of Leon, etc because they're always amazing live but for my Top 3 I picked the performances that were most memorable and outstanding to me.

Bon Iver – Skinny Love Live on Later with Jools Holland
There just aren’t enough love performances of Bon Iver (or Justin Vernon for that matter) on YouTube but this one is beautiful enough to be amongst my very favorites

Tamia – You Put A Move On My Heart Live @ Quincy Jones Celebration 1995
One of the most underrated artists. Tamia’s an AMAZING vocalist. I don’t like all of her own songs but her voice is just too brilliant. She was 19 years old at this performance, btw. PERFECTION.

Thomas Godoj - Chasing Cars Live @ DSDS Season 5 Finale
It's sort of embarassing that my #1 is a casting show performance but this is just amazing on so many levels. That guy has the most beautiful voice and he is so charming. He won the 5th season of Germany's version of 'American Idol' some years ago. Love it so much.

I saw Rammstein in 1994 opening for KISS, their set was short but OMG such an spectacular show! even if you don´t like their music, it was very entertaining
the singer caught on fire and he throw an arrow with a bow LOL good times...

Jay Z featuring Alicia Keys - New York State of Mind at the VMAs, 2009.

One of the best openings I have ever seen and a s*** ton better than the album version.

Rammstein!! Seeing them live at the Big Day out this year was the best performance of any band I have seen ever! But as the vid's aren't that good (the only ones I can find on You Tube are iPhone wobbly ones haha), I'd like to share some from their greatest live DVD, 'Volkerball'!

'Du Hast'

'Mein Teil'

Metallica for their Damaged Justice tour back in 89, this was in Seattle, the reason I particulary like this version, is because is one of the last times he sang the chorus instead of making the audience sing for him, and Jaymz voice was still in great shape, after the Black Album they were never the same unfortunately.
