Hannah Waddingham performs the new song written by Rice and Webber for the new London Palladium production and it will be released as a single in the coming weeks.
I believe she sang this on Piggy Paige's radio show on Sunday.

Hannah is as always fantastic. But the song, I'm afraid, bores me witless.

Totally agreement with Bob for once, usually love Hannah but that was super dull.

So many of the reviews said she had a great, belt out, bluesy number, I'm guessing this isn't it.
He really has lost it hasn't he!

Are you going by the video clip or the recording, mama? Cause its the last verse that really wows, the start just gets kinda monotonous without the rest of it.

But if you listen to the whole thing, its a really fantastic number.

I know as always it may be down to personal tastes and the clip does not include the final part of the song. But for me, "boring from start to finish" or "boring from start to almost the finish" is still "boring" lol.

Boring, simply boring and insult to the original writers when Webber said he would 'compliment' the original score!

Very dull- the producers of Wicked must be laughing their asses off at how quaint it looks by comparison.

And that wig and make-up for the witch really makes me appreciate the skill and style of Elpheba!

Hannah Waddingham could sing me the alphabet and I'd be in awe!
