Folks, let's not get hung up on Judy vs. Ethel--there's room enough for both of these mega talented ladies. Ethel was all superb technique--she wasn't that emotional--but her voice was like a laser beam--so you forgave the first because you were blown away by the second--hers was a force of nature. Judy was ALL heart. Two different type of performers, and BOTH valid in their own ways. Certainly more talent in their pinkies than the rafters of today's no talents paraded out before us.

This was real show business mistakes and all and thats why it will last forever. It was about having fun and you can tell these ladies are having a ball.

I know Cole Porter wrote a lot of song just for her.

AMAZING! They just don't make them like that anymore. Plus it's so great - they aren't half naked and humping a background dancer - just incredible talent!

They may have compromised on key, but they blend just great.  They are equals and you can hear each of them strongly.  It is really a great combo.

When I watch at these two monsters of the seventh art and the theater singing together, I say myself in spite of any bad moment of the life, is worth the trouble to live it, when seeing these so spectacular and wonderful moments that this it offers us, where it wants that to be, Juday and Ethel to have existed thanks.

They were both so beautiful inside and out. They are two talents that will never be able to be replaced :)

People are jealous of Mermen to this day. She WAS Broadway, they wrote songs FOR her.
She is 100x better than ANY foamdome that dares to walk the B-way stage now, they are NOTHING in comparison to Merman--NOTHING!!!

@waif55 Ethel Merman was the greatest star ever to appear on Broadway. She appeared in no fewer than fifteen hit shows in her career, a record that no one else comes even close to matching. She was never in anything but a hit, and that speaks for itself. Her record on Broadway was unique.

It's hard to believe there was a time when these living legends, appeared on a weekly variety show ( I was born too late)

The song is called 'You're Just In Love (I Wonder Why)' by Irving Berlin, from the show 'Call Me Madam'

@karlakor It sickens me there is no Broadway Theatre named for her. Merman was the greatest musical comedy star of all time, the queen of Broadway.

Every time I watch this great moment in TV history I am awed at these two incredible women. We are SO lucky that they got together on this magical night. I love it when Judy makes a mistake during You're Just In Love. The two of them keep the ball in the air and elevate the duet to an even higher level of spontaneity.

@waif55 I love Ethel. Quite honestly she reminds me of my grandmother. Classic. Different era I guess. More talent then most people theses days. Like Judy in the early days. Everyones life leads them down a different path. Some better than other. Either way, gald there is a Merman fan out there!!!

Everytime I watch this, I find myself with a silly grin on my face by the time they're finished, it's so enjoyable.

Discovering this made my day. I saw it was Judy and Ethel on the side, and I knew I would love it...then it turned out to be Cole Porter...can life be any more glorious?
