Her favorite songs from the golden age of film and theatre fused with her outstanding vocals from the ethereal to the dramatic, the music showcases the voice the world fell in love with.

Format: Audio CD
This is Susan Boyle’s 4th album: Standing Ovation: The Greatest Songs From The Stage. As the title implies, all the 11 songs are taken from stage shows. The songs are well chosen, and well known to all of us, and Susan Boyle put her own stamp and interpretation to them (like Somewhere Over The Rainbow). She is in top-form, and her voice is crisp and clear, smack in the middle. The orchestration is very smooth and refined. The bonus is of course having her childhood idol, Donny Osmond, to do two duets with her, plus the phantom himself Michael Crawford doing The Music of The Night. The audio is very well remastered. Although the sale and chart position are not at the same height as her first powerful output I Dreamed A Dream, this disc peaked at #12 on Billboard 200 and #7 on UK Album Chart. Of course, Susan being Scottish, it reached #1 on Scottish Album Chart.

The song listing (plus source of stage show) is as follows:
01 Somewhere Over The Rainbow (from Wizard of Oz)
02 The Winner Takes It All (from stage show ABBA)
03 Send In The Clowns (from Stephen Sondheim’s A Little Night Music)
04 The Music of the Night (featuring Michael Crawford)(from The Phantom Of The Opera)
05 Bring Him Home (from Les Miserables)
06 Memory (from the stage show Cats)
07 As Long As He Needs Me (from Oliver The Musical)
08 All I Ask Of You (featuring Donny Osmond)(from The Phantom Of The Opera)
09 Out Here On My Own (from Fame)
10 You’ll Never Walk Alone (from Carousel)
Encore:
11 This is the Moment (featuring Donny Osmond)(from musical Jekyll & Hyde)

As you can see, there is a great variety of music. Michael Crawford’s voice is still oh so smooth and he can still hit the high note.

Susan Boyle's interpretations of the songs she chooses to record are usually excellent. Most of the pieces on this disc are no exception. "Bring Him Home" from Les Miz was exceptional. I wasn't sure what to expect as this song is not one that is sung by a woman but Susan sings this with incredible feeling and interpretation. Bravo! The only disappointment was "Over the Rainbow". This is not a song that I would think could be totally mangled but Susan did it. The phrasing of the song is very peculiar and doesn't make much sense. Had this song been left out, the CD would be outstanding.

Saw her singing on Britain's got talent on Youtube singing from Les Miserables (I Dreamed a Dream) and I was hooked on her interpretive style and voice.
While there are many singers that may be vocally better, she definitely has something special in the way she sings the selections on this album that is hard to describe.
In this album, "Standing Ovation", she does a beautiful arrangement of "Somewhere over the Rainbow" (similar to Eva Cassidy's version)...slow and very melodic. "Winner takes it all" by Abba, "Send in the Clowns"(by Stephen Sondhiem), while the piano arrangement is not quite as pretty as with Streisand or Judy Collins, Susan manages a respectable rendition of this one. "Music of the Night" (Phantom of the Opera), a duet with Michael Crawford is very good, "Bring him home"(Les Miserables). "Memory" from Cats is done very well, "As long as he needs me" (from Oliver), originally sung by Shirley Bassey, "All I ask of you (Phantom of the Opera), duet with Donny Osmond is very nicely done, "Out here on my own" (from Fame) is good, "You'll never walk alone" is one of those inspirational songs that has been done by many, but Susan manages to make it even better especially on the notes in the upper register without showing any effort, and this is a demanding song of any singer. "This is the moment" (from Jekyll and Hyde) is a duet performed by Donny Osmond and Susan.

This CD is definately on my Christmas Gift giving list. I like the fact she makes the songs her own, does not copy the original artists. EXCELLENT!!!

This CD is Susan Boyle's best yet! Her heart is in theatre music and that is what Standing Ovation is all about. Susan puts her heart into every song, bringing great emotion to her work. You can't listen once. You'll find yourself playing this one over and over. This CD deserves high marks. Susan's voice and her interpretations are absolutely beautiful.

This is Susan's best album to date. I loved the selection of songs and absolutely loved her duets with Michael Crawford and Donnie Osmond. The men's voices blended in beautifully with hers. I would like to see her do some more duets with other male singers, preferably more hit Broadway tunes. That is her forte.

This CD is very lovely. If you love Susan's beautiful voice you will find this CD of old favorites very pleasing. He mellow voice is a pleasure to listen to. She sings these songs that are well known but she sings them her way and are very nice and very interesting to listen to.

A softer Susan Boyle. She now has emotion in her voice, and she does a great job with Anthony Newly's Send in The Clowns. Track 9, Out here on my own, gives us the Susan we expect to hear, strong and rich. Donny Osmond is fabulous on the album as well. A fine collection from Susan Boyle.
