From 2000 to 2001, but not yet in 2009 and nowhere near my exam revision, I can’t tell if this is hilarious or devastating.
Hilarious: Michael Jackson‘s godlike acknowledgement at the beginning.
Devastating: The sense that Liza’s not quite with us, savouring a comeback moment that’s not quite happening.
Hilarious: The final high note.
Devastating: When she flashes some leg.
Hilarious: When the gospel choir emerges in the background.
Devastating: A pervasive feeling of tragedy and decline.
