Lyle Lovett and kd lang

Lyle Lovett always puts on a good show, especially when he brings the Large Band along (and it is large in both size and talent level), but kd lang was stunning. I was tremendously impressed with her singing and her stagecraft, although I sympathize with those who'd prefer her to be political the way she used to be. She did the sit-down-like-a-talk-show-host thing, but all she could manage was a risque joke about enjoying the thought of Paris Hilton in jail. Nonetheless, she managed to take on songs by everyone from Neil Young to Peggy Lee and made them her own, even managing to do a riveting version of Leonard Cohen's over-covered "Hallelujah."
