  1. I think the gold standard is Renee Fleming because she’s the only one who sings the song exactly as written. I find Jennifer Hudson’s extra runs extremely distracting. And with the exception of Whitney, everyone else on your list sings the word “banner” incorrectly. It’s “ban-ne-er” and not “ba-an-ne-er”. The “ban” part is just one note, not broken into 2. Also, almost everyone mispronounces “perilous” as “perolous” or “perulous”. It’s especially obvious and annoying with Jennifer Hudson because she “perROLLus” (emphasis on the “roll”). Correct pronunciation is “pehr ih lus” and Fleming is about the only one who does it correctly.
