Yes, an outstanding performance and I think you're right Jillian, there were some quite low notes. I love Hayley's version of this song - as we suspected, she hasn't tried to copy Celine but created her own sound.
Loved her facial expression during the closing vocalese. WOW!
She did amazing! I'm not so sure that the "whereEVER you are" notes really suited her voice that well, but that's just because she's not Celine Dion. She doesn't have a powerhouse voice like Celine does. I wonder if she had somehow made the notes softer, not tried to be powerful, maybe it would've been better for her, but she still did really well. She did as best as she could.
Here's that last photo again, but I managed to make it so she looks normal, not all narrow, LOL:
I made it smaller in the official forum, and when I copied it from there, and pasted back over here, the normal flatness translated over to here. I wonder if anyone knows what I'm talking about. Anyway, it looks better now than it did on the last page.
Okay, here's the small version of the photo I was talking about:
The only way to make it bigger is to click on it on the website, and it comes up, but when it does, it loses its jpg format. Oh and of course, now there are a bunch more photos posted there, but the same problem. If I try to post them all here, they'll be too small, so it doesn't seem worth it. So if you would like to see them, go to here for the time being: hayleyonline.net/index.php?page=galleryview&n=Beijingfilmfestival
Hopefully somebody will find them wherever he found them, and can post them here.
Spiderman, on Hayleyonline has found some press reports (about 100 he says). Most seem very similar. They are very favourable. Like this one
The closing ceremony is the most striking is that on the stage five face a giant multimedia screen, the British Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Hayley the Witherspoon Tela (inset) in the scene under the re-interpretation of "My Heart Will Go" extremely shocking force.

In addition to the portrait of playing of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, a number of Chinese and foreign singers sing the evening concert, an important Aspect. The concert halfway through last year to help out concert Bocelli 2011 Miracle of the New Zealand soprano Hayley Witherspoon Tela "leading role" on stage, live accompaniment in the British Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under sang the classic theme song of "Titanic" "I Heart Will Go On Hayley wearing dressed in golden Bra-style knee-length fishtail skirt that night, with a beautiful blond complement each other, and made it very tender and charming on the stage, and her singing affectionate, elegant, with the British Royal Philharmonic Orchestra passionate and elegant performances, won the warmest applause of the audience.

Sometimes these automatic translations get things right. Hayleys rendition of "My Heart Will go On" was described as
"very tender and charming on the stage, and her singing affectionate, elegant"
Couldn't have put it better myself. That's jhow she made it different from the iconic version of the song by Celine Dion, which I'm glad she didn't try to compete with.
