Default Jon at Billy Joel Concert

Two things struck me in the clip:

1. Jon looks really animated and enjoying himself more than at his own concerts

2. Whilst the song is fast paced, he doesnít seem to have breathing issues

Nice to see Jon looking like he enjoys being on stage, and sounding good too.

I agree; and that's not an easy song to sing, either. Lots o' words for someone who seems to have timing issues with some of his own songs. But he seemed to have a good time with it.

I wonder how many songs he did. I'd like to hear more of "Big Shot".

Jon sounds good and looks like a full blown front man. Probably a ton of factors at play here - knowing that Billy could take over if he stumbles on a line; being on somebody else's stage and that being exciting and new; doing it 'cos he wants to and not because he's on tour and the date has been booked... and maybe also because he really loves the song. Who knows.

Perhaps we can also add not willing to bet on an unfamiliar crowd giving him a pass as his own crowd would.

Sorry, but it's only "good" because the song is easy and you still barely hear him.

These days Jon sounds good when singing other people's songs than when he tries to sing his own songs. That's been the case for the past few years now.

He actually moves around instead of staying planted behind the mic, again unlike when he's singing Bon Jovi songs.

Personally I am out regardless but isn't passable now the standard most people are hoping for? We're never getting great so being able to say "well, that wasn't a disaster" is the barometer for success. I guess the Billy Joel fans were not coming away commenting on how awful Jon was, so chalk it up as a minor win. Looking at the performance on a more granular level (again, it was passable), he still looks awkward even when attempting to do the front man schtick. I believe he has just lost it, whatever "it" may be.
