Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Very disappointing and significantly below past performances.

Mechanical Barbra who sings with no genuine emotional quality and poor musical dynamics. Phrasing is off and she seems to be just going through the motions. Voice quality is okay, but she is not singing from the heart. The musical soul is sadly missing. Arrangements are mediocre and there is too much irrelevant, unnecessary chatter. The use of profanity is totally unacceptable and unprofessional. This performance is nothing like her early performances which were exceptional.
