Not because I’ve stood before an upright, hand clapping audience, but because I should do things without wanting human praise. I understand that now, besides that’s way too much pressure to put on any one person. I don’t need a standing ovation, nor do I want one, there is far more important goals and wishes in life. 2 months ago

I’ve gotten standing ovations as an actor.
Obviously it’s more likely to happen if you’re cast as a lead role.
I wish there was more to say, but it’s mostly just how much effort you put into your craft. 6 years ago

I was the MC of a cultural show during college. It wasn’t a ton of people, but I did get a standing O at the end of it. 7 years ago
My friends and I were in the talent show my 10th grade year of highschool. We decided to sing Beethoven’s ‘Joyful Joyful’ acapella. Being a shy girl who wasn’t in the ‘in crowd’ at our small school, I was pretty nervous—especially because we were up against ‘popular kids’ who were playing loud rock and roll most teen agers prefer, and also because I had a solo in the very beginning of the song. To our surprise, when we finished, the audience rose to its feet and filled the room with whistles and applause. We won first place in our school talent show that year. It’s a special memory I’ll never forget:) 7 years ago
Killer QueenNot as an accolade to me as a person, but as appreciation for taking an audience for a thrilling ride
I don’t need to “get” a standing ovation, but to induce a standing ovation, not as an accolade to me as a person, but as appreciation for taking an audience for a thrilling ride that requires the release of energy that a standing ovation allows an audience to have. 8 years ago
