    I think the real reason why Glenn has had more success with this musical than Patti is because of this: 
    First, Patti is good, really good. It's no surprise she has a better singing voice overall than Glenn does, and I feel that her dry and sarcastic manner actually fits more closely to Gloria Swanson than Glenn ever did. However, unlike Patti, Glenn didn't try to imitate Gloria and her sarcastic, bitchy nature. Granted there is some of that clearly present in Glenn's Norma, but what I mean is that she played her as a more sad and desperate character, almost like she was much more aware of how tragic her life was rather than simply living in cold denial, like Patti's Norma was. As a result, she was much more successful at making the role her own and standing out than Patti did. At least she got a swimming pool out of it.

    There aren't words to define this lady. All i can Say is: thank you Glenn

  3. Glen Campbell

    Top notch.

  4. Jeff Davis

    She could easily have just stood there and sang the song. But not Glen Close! She was acting the part just like she did on the Broadway stage. Magnificent!!!

    With one look, I can break your heart
    With one look, I play every part
    I can make your sad heart sing
    With one look you'll know, all you need to know
    With one smile, I'm the girl next door
    Or the love that you've hungered for
    When I speak it's with my soul
    I can play any role
    No words can tell
    The stories my eyes tell
    Watch me when I frown
    You can't write that down
    You know, I'm right
    It's there in black and white
    When I look your way
    You'll hear what I say
    Yes, with one look, I put words to shame
    Just one look sets the screen aflame
    Silent music starts to play
    One tear from my eye makes the whole world cry
    With one look they'll forgive the past
    They'll rejoice, I've returned at last
    To my people in the dark
    Still out there in the dark
    Silent music starts to play
    With one look you'll know, all you need to know
    With one look, I'll ignite a blaze
    I'll return to my glory days
    They'll say
    Norma's back at last
    This time I'm staying
    I'm staying for good, I'll be back
    Where I was born to be
    With one look, I'll be me

    MAGNIFICENT! and hats off to Andrew lloyd Weber who in every show creates something that stops my heart. I ask myself how does one write music and lyrics that capture the imagination like this song and then I think of Alma Deutcher and I understand they have a very special gift. Genius.

    I was honored to have seen Glenn Close in Sunset Boulevard on Broadway . I was overcome by emotions. She is truly one of the greatest actresses of all time.

  8. D O

    Had NO idea she could sing too. All the legends will soon disappear and we will be left with stale talentless performers.

  9. Zafnat Paneaj

    PURE MAGIC, PURE TALENT !!!

  10. timvitkuske

    really good. but no Betty.

  11. Rene Dulnuan

    Sunset Boulevard Rebekah !

  12. Renan C. Maia

    I hope they use this clip in her Kennedy Center tribute.

  13. Fº Javier Eleuterio Jimenez

    Glenn Close ganará por fin el Oscar cuando hagan el remake de "Sunset Boulevard".Ella es Norma Desmond.

  14. Prithvijeet Sinha

    The lines couldn't be more suitable for Ms. Close. With one look, she can convey multitudes. Watch her movie MAXIE, a beautifully created farce in which she essays the role of a dead 1920s star who enters the body of an 80s lady. As the '20s star, she was magnificent, especially while singing and enacting the part of Cleopatra. Glenn Close is spectacular as the iconic Norma Desmond.

    Bravoooooooo!!!!!

  24. Jason Lee

    Brilliant….

  25. Zimatar

    Magnificent actress. Truly great and truly a legend.

  26. Azrael666Azazel

    Love the performance, but I have a random question. What is that scarf/headdress that Close is wearing? It seems to be the default thing "aging actresses" wear in a lot of period pieces. Is there a name for it, or is it just a head scarf?

  27. Catherine Margolis

    Stunning! I saw her in this role on Broadway last year. She was still awesome!

  28. Queen C

    Can't believe this woman didn't get the academy award, again.

  29. Jim Perretta

    If nothing else, she was born to play Norma. Exquisite in every nuance.

  30. Jefferson Borges

    Such an iconic performance. Can't wait to watch Glenn on big screen as Norma Desmond. It's going to be HUGE! And please, Paramount, we need Jake Gyllenhaal as Joe Gillis,  John Malkovich as Max and Amy Adams or Rachel Brosnahan as Betty Schaefer. Thanks!

  31. swaralipi

    Love you Glenn. Waiting for the film version

  32. YENS_Manny Chang

  36. bmw320i2

    Watching this you can see Norma Desmond was as mad as a meat axe. Superb performance.

  37. Karen Baumgartel

    Totally impressed! Didn’t know Glenn Close can sing so well!

  38. Malcolm w

    Incredible. Got shivers down my spine. She acted the hell out of that song

  39. sford557

    My dream role on stage…in 20+ years, way too young at the moment. I have been in this musical though.

  40. Ninian MacMillan-Keith

    For some strange reason this song makes me sad. It the realisation that I too am growing old. Ones looks are fading

  41. Ed Michael

    Cruela should win Oscars and Kennedy Honors

  42. L. George Jr.

    One of the most underrated actresses EVER.
    Saw her in 2017, and she made my first ever musical experience extra special. I can’t wait for SB movie remake and I want her to FINALLY win her long overdue OSCAR. Also, pls try to see her latest movie The Wife, just give it a try ❤️
