I have listened to it numerous times now... (singing all day pahpa-pahpapada...
) but I still am very certain she does NOT say his name. I would like to think it was random that she chose him to sing.
She does know however that it indeed is the VIP part of the venue, and that there can be people of the music business in it.
What is far more important to me is the very notacible surprise on her face when she realises that Joe really can sing. Her words "somebody's got some pitch here" and "you sound beautiful" is amazing, I can not believe how Joe must be feeling.
When I imagine Barbra Streisand saying that to me, I would not say, I could die a happy man now.....I think I just died on the spot
