The very first thing that sprung to mind was that Last Night On Earth video. Absolutely flawless.

I'd also say the studio version of Jesus Of Suburbia, particularly the first part, is pretty special.

I always thought his performance on Good Morning America in 2012 was very solid. Holiday is a great example.

I thinks it's silly to post recorded version because his voice is allways fixed with tecnology.

Live versions are better to discuss

All BIAB. I worship this dvd live but I mean, his voice is so much better in live and the AI era is perfect to me.

Also, I think we're all connected because I, too, immediatly thought about the LNOE performance posted above.

I've always loved this one, all three songs sounded amazing :wub:

 

That one's great as well:

 

Or more recently, this performance of Brutal Love:

 

Or this one:


 

And not to forget his performances on Broadway, of course :)

I must say, I don't see why you all refer to the Last Night On Earth video as a good example. He's not really pushing his voice, using power, and it's not perfectly sung either tbh. What am I missing?

When he sings the high note on She's A Rebel it's incredible:

This is one of my favorites. Green Day performing 80 in 1991 -- even though the recording isn't the best quality, Billie's voice is absolutely spot on the entire time. Performance starts at around 1:15.

I was just going to post this! I always seem to re-realize how amazing his vocals really are when I hear him sing with other people, like here or on Foreverly.

21 Guns live in Japan. 

 

I love his voice in this, really emotional in my opinion.

Also, the not-video version from AAF is even more amazing. The quiet, piano-only interlude before the final chorus is beautiful.
