Best: Music's Biggest Voices Vie for the Championship Belt

Sunday's telecast was teeming with ballads, but on the bright side, slowing things down allowed vocalists to show off their chops. Lady Gaga's robust, confrontational alto amped up the power of "Million Reasons"; Kesha fueled her vocal power with raw emotion during "Praying"; Pink stayed earthbound and let her voice do the soaring on "Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken"; and Elton John and Miley Cyrus offered up a spirited singalong of "Tiny Dancer." Perhaps the presence of Patti LuPone, a Tony- and Grammy-winning vocal powerhouse who lit up Evita's torch song "Don't Cry For Me, Argentina" in a tribute to composer Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber, inspired other singers on Sunday's bill to step up their collective game, but no matter the reason, the vocal prowess on display was a serious treat.
