If she would have left all that embellishment out it would have been pretty good. Why complicate a beautiful, somewhat simple piece.....

Sounds like a poorly recorded demo for a Liberace contest.

Donny, That could be said about anyone commenting and giving an opinion on ANYTHING. ... I watch sports and do not hesitate to comment on what I might think is a bad play by an athlete, and I would think that you have done the same when watching the E-girls or especially when you were watching our beloved Yankees fall to the Astros ... And they all are far better athletes than I am ...
It's part of what makes the world go round ...

She certainly is a trained pianist. I don’t know how this relates to entertainment...but it is definitely a poor recording.

I guess you're right to a point Tony but these demos and judgments are out of control....

Many have already said that she's technically on a very good level. I think her arrangement makes the impression that showing her technique is in the focus here, and in relation to the melody it appears a bit of an exaggerated style.
What makes it a little annoying to listen to it is the acoustics of the room, the recording and the detuned grand piano, also it's too much forte playing especially in the left hand, could be due to the piano responsiveness, too.

Back to the original question.

“Does good playing equal good entertainment?

My answer: Yes, but only to a very limited audience. The question being answered here is another view. Can she play good arpeggios and scales? Yes, reasonably well. Does her playing have the emotions that this song needs? --- the title is Feelings; no, she does not.

The only reason for posting these opinions is to help those who are not aware about the emotional part of music. They are not to discredit the young lady who is playing.

I finally listened to it ... all I could think of was 'variations on a theme' ...

John C. I’ll always remember when I was working at the piano my teacher said “anyone can play notes, you need to play with expression.”

Crossover you hit the nail on the head that piano is “detuned “ and does not really sound as good as it should.
