It's not even fair. I bet she's even fabulous at underwater basket weaving. Sutton Foster can actually do anything and it's like, "woah, my expectations for any future ideal has been shattered by what I just witnessed this woman do". She is outrageously perfect.

In many musical numbers like this over the years, you have a fantastic lead singer who sings then stands off to the side while the dance ringers do their number.  Not here.  Doing the singing and the entire dance number, too?  I won't insult her by merely calling that "talent".  That's talent + hard work, folks, and the result is outstanding.  Bravo!

Dear Gaga fans saying Gaga sang it better: "See, on Broadway we don't need extreme close ups to prove we're singing live. We sing live 8 shows a week. Check it." ~Neil Patrick Harris

Brilliant. The choreography is impeccable too and the dancers who tap and sing at the same time are unsung Broadway heroes!

It's almost like Sutton was born to tap at the Tony's and then win for said tapping.

She is just too perfect to handle. So glad she won the tony for best actress in a musical. Still think she should have won for Violet and Drowsy...

GAGA & TONY SLAY THIS

She actually was singing live in this, there's a bit of an imperfection when she starts singing "goes!" In the end of the song. Also, you can tell she's singing live. It's just obvious. And how she leans back at the end shows she's trying as hard as possible to hit that note. Gaga has nothing on Sutton. I do love her version but Sutton is the real deal

Okay just to have a good opinion on this i just listened to the gaga version. I mean she is alright but i dont get why everyone says she sings it better than sutton foster. I wouldnt listen to gagas version again. But suttons version i could listen to on repeat. Gaga sings it in a more pop kinda way which doesnt really fit the song. Her voice doesnt really convince me either. And also sutton has won the tony for this for a good reason.she kills this performance. She is an amazing performer. I am not saying that gaga isnt. Its just not her genre at all.

Gaga doesn't have that strong a Broadway voice, she's singing it in a very jazz style. She started singing jazz at the age of 13 and it was put on a jazz album.

I like Patti Lupone's version better.

I'm seeing a lot of people comparing this to Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett. I don't feel like you can compare this performance to that. They are completely different.

Is it me, or is Sutton Foster Broadway's answer to Balanchine? She's tall, incredibly fast on her feet, and utterly charming.

She is good, but not quite the talent level of Lady Gaga...or even Ashley Simpson.

+Maggie McDonald​ Yes... I can't decide... I mean... I copied this Video's audio because I couldn't find it on Google Music and I played a little bit with my equalizer and... This one? It sounds amazing - Patti is all classic and stuff but... I think I should change my mind - Sutton Foster is either AS good AS or better THAN Patti Lupone :3 ... I hope you like reading 😄

cool inspiration if you have young boys/girls studying tap and point. Yeah its worth the lessons!!

DAMN. She truly is a Triple Threat. Stunning voice. Magnificent, gorgeous, amazing dancing. DAMN. I'm assuming she's a wonderful actress, too. Haven't had the pleasure of seeing her in a show. Never watched Bunheads. I think she's in a new series I will need to check out. Her dancing, though, blows my mind.

Matter of opinion, but I think Sutton Foster sounds like shes got a cold in this show, shes very nasal, I thought it was her usual voice, but she sounds great in Violet & if anything, she makes me want to see it, just to watch her.

This performance is a disappointment if you watch it right after you saw Patti Lupone's performance
Report spam or abuse
+Kianny Rodriguez I must respectfully disagree. I am in awe of Ms. Lupone's voice on any given day; however, in her version she mostly stood back and watched everyone else dance with small exceptions. Ms. Foster is front and center dancing her butt off (with more intricate and demanding choreography) for pretty much the entire almost-8-minute production, and she still manages to belt it to the back row at the end. Both women are ferociously talented. but Ms. Foster's performance is far from a disappointment.

It's mostly a difference in audio and video quality. Although broadway voices haven't really changed much, there is a difference from 25+ years ago.

It makes me sad that people are shitting on this now that Gaga has a version. Come on guys. This is AMAZING. Just because this is on youtube and so is Gaga's version doesn't mean there needs to be this weird competitive jealously.

+fantasticpancake YES, fantasticpancake! Tall is good! Still, teensy-tiny (per Kristin Ch.) is also very wonderful. EMBRACE the size/shape/height YOU are. (but, yeah... I have to be honest. Now, that I am way, waaayyy past my teen years, I do love being tall.) Hell, any day above ground is a good one.

Yeah like if you listen to 30's, 40's and 50's music listen to there voice, there quality, their tone Patti Lupone actually has that quality if you listen to her song. No body does that anymore and Anything goes is from that time period! SHe has that old time record sound to her voice like they would have in someone from that time Frankie Lymon, other people its so rare yet no one values that today so of course they woudlnt respect her voice because they dont understand the uniqueness of that time and 50's time vocals!

+brittany ritenour yep! you can tell patti gave her all and really tried..shes not half assing it and thats why shes great.

Why do people always like Sutton Foster better then Patti Lupone in Anything goes, like shes good Im not going to say sh isnt, but Patti Lupone has a voice nobody hasss anymore and the personality, Sutton Foster is the idealized thats why everyone likes her. BUt Patti Lupone actually has a vocal tht nobody has anymore and old classic voice of that of the oldies singers nobody understands the quality and value those singers use to havem, and I respect Patti Lupone for that. I think her personality is much more like Reno her sarcasism her voice matches that time. But no one likes it because no one respects that time. THis is very modernized as what i would say. I love 50's performers and anyone who can sing like that I admire and Patti's got it and anything goes isssss closerr to that time! Shes alot more like ethel mermin then she is.

Lupone stands there and does her usual Fog Horn rendition. Maybe that's why people like Foster's version better.

Maybe the song, but while Gaga and Bennet did a cover, Sutton did a performance, and you can't compare them as it was the same, Sutton sang, danced and acted live! Gaga and Tony recorded a track and video.

+Itzel Oropeza Tony Bennet is pushing 90 and his voice is shot. He gets respect because he truly is a legendary performer and in his prime he was nothing short of brilliant. Lady Ga Ga sucks crusty ass. She screams through the song.
