Matt and I have imbedded a few of the youtube videos on Hayley Online
These are just the lower quality videos that are on youtube, but they are laid out a little easier, rather than having to search through youtube...I direct your attention to the "The Moon Represents My Heart" video because it has the English translation along the bottom.
That is my favourite video/song of the opening ceremony at the moment....it's Beautiful!
I just realised that Hayley participated in 6 songs at this event! Why so many? Of course, no one can ever get enough Hayley, but I just think that it is fairly remarkable. How many songs did the other participants sing?
I just watched Nada Sou Sou and Pokarekare Ana on Youtube. They're great also! I really like Pokarekare Ana -- which is a big deal for me as I've sort of listened to that song so much I became sick of it --- but Hayley and Russell really brought it back to life for me! Superb!
'We Are The Champions' was fun -- I think that the Taiwanese singer Shin stole the show in that one.
Hi Jillian, thanks for all the screenshots, I knew i could rely on someone to do them!
Don't overdo it though, or people won't be able to find the videos they came from!
I've decided to do (or re-do) all the main songs in 1280x720p high definition now I've figured out how to do it (YouTube doesn't recognize the existing 960x540 ones as HD, though they are really because SD only goes upto 720 wide) but I will spread that out over the next few days. There's no rush in view of the mass of them at standard definition on YT already.
Don't worry, Dave, I'm all screencapped out! Time for some sleep, I think! I've been so busy this week and I was looking forward to collapsing into bed -- but I came on here and got so excited that I forgot all about sleep!
Anyway, Bravo Hayley!! What a great performance! It must have been a very exciting night for her.
Hayley had the privilege of opening The World Games 2009 Kaohsiung yesterday at the eco-friendly Main Stadium Taiwan. It is the biggest sporting event the nation has ever hosted. President Ma Ying-jeou announced the official start of the games in front of 4,800 athletes from 105 participating countries. Hayley opened the ceremony with Amazing Grace and dueted with local Taiwanese star Shin and British Tenor Russell Watson.
It is also on YouTube in high definition and it works, I've just played it (on YT) in HD and cannot tell it from the original! Yo'll need a fast computer and fast broadband, though, to see it properly in HD on YT. www.youtube.com/watch?v=t3gVYH7hw8c come on, let's get the viewcount up, we are late!
My favourite is the next one, Nada Sousou, but unfortunately, there are some glitches on the video satellite stream, which I want to fix before I upload it.
