Studio version of Stars

I really like this version of Stars. Just Russell and piano in a studio...

No he is not, but I feel that it does not matter. I prefer this version over the movie, but no matter what, I like his singing and cannot quite understand why the critics came down so hard on him...

I think it is just trendy to do so. They are even stooping so low now as to call him a bad actor as if his past history with the Oscars has never happened.

Yes, guess so. None of them would ever be able to deliver performances like he does. Some of their attitude must be envy.

I really like this version.. much more intimate. I admit when I saw the movie I didn't care so much for his voice, even though I've listened to him on other songs. I was thinking back to the stage versions I'd seen.
His voice is just different as it's not an operatic type voice. Since the movie, I've read some articles and even got a chance to see the 25th Anniversary Concert on PBS.
For me, I've come to embrace the fact that the movie has to stand on its own. I hope that this changes other features to use living singing as it was just so REAL...
The one who really surprised me was Eddie Redmayne - he had me gutted with "Empty Chairs".
