Comments

Taka Ono : I still can't decide whether I like this rendition more or Laura Benanti's.  Granted, Laura's clip on here is only audio, but her voice sounds so right on the song.  Lea's edge is that her acting is mesmerizing, and the fact that she never pushes her voice too hard throughout just drives home the emptiness and vulnerability she's feeling in the moment.  Stunning performance.   

Jake Gadomski : She has so much control during this piece and does not at all over sing.  She gives the right amount of vocals to the song. Just stunning.  

Nikki Rikki : I'm the guy at 1:28 "NICE."

carlo456622 : watching this makes me feel heartbroken even if im not. hahaha

Les Turla : I turned this performance into an MP3 and it's become the most played song in my iPhone. I bet if YouTube had a counter on my most played video, it would be this one too.

Lea Mintonette Styles : Her rehearsals can be for concerts already! Bravo!

Bianky Flowers : Had the privilege of hearing and watching this live when she performed here in Osaka along with 3 other musical legends, and goodness, I've drown in feels. I've never heard of the musical "The last five years" before and I'm not familiar with the songs or the story but Ms. Leah gave a really heartfelt performance. By the end of the song I was weeping and asking what the hell is wrong with Jamie?

Stephy Reyes : She is this great even during a rehearsal

yvie : Minimal makeup, minimal but powerful expressions with such an emotionally charged voice. Queen is Lea is queen <3

Tooth Fairy : brilliant vocal. on point and with right emotions. clarity.... gosh .... one thing that this girl has and a lot of singers does not posses. she's so beautiful. I'm in tears. this will be played in my house all the years to come.

banana2510 : I felt EVERYTHING she was portraying!!! OMG her acting and emotions are just left out to dry. Absolutely perfection. Simple and effortless, yet so impactful and effective.

chaps bryan : This isn't oversinging..just as it is.. it is PERFECT... Great job Lea..

peterpan57ify : This version is just beautiful. The emotions and vocal control are there. It wasn't over the top nor it was overacted. It's just right.

Naomi Corpuz : Just amazing. I am speechless. This is the best rendition of "Still Hurting" which has been sang so many times by a lot of singers. LEA. NEVER. FAILS.

Lilly Of the North : Lyrics. Jamie is over and Jamie is gone Jamie's decided it's time to move on Jamie has new dreams he's building upon And I'm still hurting Jamie arrived at the end of the line Jamie's convinced that the problems are mine Jamie is probably feeling just fine And I'm still hurting What about lies, Jamie? What about things That you swore to be true What about you, Jamie What about you Jamie is sure something wonderful died Jamie decides it's his right to decide Jamie's got secrets he doesn't confide And I'm still hurting Go and hide and run away Run away, run and find something better Go and ride the sun away Run away like it's simple Like it's right... Give me a day, Jamie Bring back the lies Hang them back on the wall Maybe I'd see How you could be So certain that we Had no chance at all Jamie is over and where can I turn? Covered with scars I did nothing to earn Maybe there's somewhere a lesson to learn But that wouldn't change the fact That wouldn't speed the time Once the foundation's cracked And I'm Still hurting

Maria Curry : This girl is sooo pretty even without makeup!

Jamaima Banasen : i don't know why there's an ache within my heart, i don't even know the story! great as always Ms. Lea! :)

I so love Lea! :)

Ez Waygood : My favorite rendition, her voice is so clear! I would pick her over Anna Kendrick any day!

King Albesa : I will never get tired of listening to this video. I can always feel the emotions and the realness.

mariah : always gives me chills. she is my QUEEN. 

Ninz Metran : i can almost feel as well as hear the rawness of the emotion behind the story of this song. what was great about this performance was that Lea was able to connect with this song and its message. it brought me back to the time that i was really hurting from a broken relationship.

cdcotr : the raw quality of this setting makes it even more special and moving

daniel smith : That last line...God i was torn to pieces and i was crying....

dankichi07 : has anyone seen the play? you guys should see it. this is one of my favorite musical. It starts with this song while Kathy was reading Jamie's letter telling her he's leaving. So those asking what the hells wrong with jaime, you guys should see it. Its really heartbreaking.
