it was a beautiful rendition of the song. I know some people think that no one can do better than celine but this girl hits it right out of the park.

ES MUY DIFICIL DESPUES DE ESCUCHAR A CELINE PODER COMPARARLA CON OTRA CANTANTE. CELINE ES REALMENTE UNICA,PERO SYLVIA ESTA HACIENDO UN ESFUERZO POR CANTAR ADELANTE.( CELINE ES INCOMPARABLE ).

I was personally baffled to know that they even let this song be on the air. I was excited to know someone was playing a tribute to Celine Dion, but when that girl opened her mouth I was in utter shock to hear what I was hearing. Her voice does not suit this song very well -- needless to say, it was very pitchy. Not impressed at all. This song is suited for a very soft powerful voice. Very few people posses such a combination.

She's a finalist on The Voice, right?

I'd like to thank her for singing that song and reminding us that Celine is truly THE best singer on this planet.

lol sorry, but that cover was..... sigh...

I DON'T LIKE IT.

Everyone check out carly rosesonenclar version of my heart will I on I never like anyone who sings celine songs but this little 13 year old girl is amazing and Sylvia should stick to anything but celine songs period !

She really needs to take some singing lessons...stick with the notes and don't vibrate so much!! I also don't like her voice and tone...yuck!

I don't even want to listen to it! No offence to the artist but for me this is "Celine's song" No-one else will ever compare!

Sylvia Yacoub,this song is CELINE'S ! So -So. She is no Celine , and NO ONE ever will be. This is CELINE'S, no one else should touch it !

She is good, but Nobody sings like Celine,
Celine is perfect Smile

Definately not Celine and not as good as 13 year old Carly Rose Sonenclar on The X Factor this year. Here is the link....

As far as I'm concerned this song is "sacred ground" it's very personal and it belongs to Celine, she owns it and I think every other want a be should avoid it completely...I do not want to hear anyone else sing it...sorry but I fell very strong about it

Arranjo diferente, linda voz, parabéns!

Different arrangement, beautiful voice, congratulations!

It's a really range-y song, and it has this horrendous modulation halfway through. To be able to do this you have to have a very strong voice and a sure voice to be able to sing it. There's that point two-thirds of the way through where there's that big key change, and she hits that big note, and that's it, and this girl, Sylvia, she didn't have enough range and you can hear some pitch. I'm just saying that if you are going to sing a song like this you better be good at it (from the beginning through the end). But I'm really happy that she try her best and of course, her nerves took out the best from her. But at the same time is really difficult when you do a classic song like this and not compere with the original. I'm proud of Sylvia to do this classic song, is a big risk but now she can continue in the competition, thanks for that risk she took. good luck to her!

I agree with @shash2105!!!!!!

My humble opinion the girl destroy one of the classic song.
Queen Celine own this song.
No one can come close to our beloved Celine

some pitch problem at the end

isa

She is really good!!!!!! Smile
