She's delivering a Tony-nominated performance eight times a week in If/Then. She's appearing on magazine covers like it's no big deal. She's saving the world. So, what does Tony winner Idina Menzel do in her downtime? Just what we all would: make her Radio City Music Hall debut in a one-night-only concert. The show is sure to have a stellar setlist, so we asked fans to choose the one song they think Menzel must sing live on June 16. The results are in, and here's what you had to say! Spoiler alert: Tony-winning performances and Oscar-winning tunes are very popular choices!
1. "Defying Gravity," Wicked— 27%
A surprise victory! OK, not at all. But hey, that’s fine. Menzel won a Tony for her performance as the greenified, misunderstood witch Elphaba in Wicked, and the act one finale has become a musical theater staple, so it makes sense that fans want to see her perform the showstopper live at Radio City. However, which version should Menzel sing? How it appears in the show? Her acoustic solo version? As long as she's belting her face off, it doesn't matter to us.
2. "Let It Go," Frozen— 20%
The number of times we’ve heard this song in the past month never bothered us, anyway. We’ve come across countless covers of the Frozen pop anthem, from Mr. Jeremy Jordan, to a couple dozen international beltresses to everything in between, but let’s face it: no one beats the Frozen queen herself. What we would give to hear Menzel perform the Oscar-winning, Billboard-topping, bath time favorite live!
3. "The Wizard and I," Wicked — 7%
Guys. “Defying Gravity” and “The Wizard and I?" How about “No Good Deed,” “I’m Not That Girl” and “Something Bad” while we’re at it? We kid; fanzels love their Wicked, and there's nothing wrong with that! This song may not scream “one-night-only concert” material like the two choices above, but it’s a powerhouse vehicle nonetheless, and Menzel sounds just so darn good singing it.
