At a memorial service for Dame Joan Sutherland earlier today, Julia Gillard, PM of Oz, proclaimed the dead opera singer the greatest singer of the 20th century.

I've never been able to listen to her singing for more than 30 seconds or so ... Joan that is, not Julia. I could listen to Julia sing for minutes.
Dame Joan greatest singer, blah, blah, blah
