Here are some reports from people who saw Tori on VH1's "50 Greatest Women of the Video Era":

From Mike Fisher and Richard Handal:

    Mike and Richard tell me that they actually show Tori later in the program talking about she Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders who is #13 during the program. So you want to make sure you see that part of the show too, during the second hour or Episode 2 of this program.

From marco nieves:
    On the Greatest Women in the Video Era countdown, Tori ranked 36. Melissa Etheridge and Lisa Marie Presley (who is know working with Eric Rosse, *hint hint*) were two of the people that spoke sweetness about Tori. :)

From Kristy:
    Tori came in on the countdown at number 36. The segment about her opened with the song "God" and showed some clips from the music video. While showing the clips from the video the narrator introduced her: "This annually poetic singer/songwriter Tori Amos isn't your typical preacher's daughter. Creating melodies and other worldly videos, Tori's created a sound which rivals pops convention.

    Then more clips from Tori's various videos and live performances are shown. The first person to comment on Tori is Melissa Ethridge, "You get these amazing pictures in her songs. She's sooooo talented!"

    Then some music and clips from "Cornflake Girl." The next person to speak is Jorja Fox from CSI, "Who would have thought that one woman and her piano would break into the top 40 charts over and over and over again?"

    Next some music and clips from "Caught a Lite Sneeze." The next person to speak about Tori is Lisa Marie Presley, "I've never seen anyone play the piano more beautifully and it just does something...(she stutters a bit)'s almost inhuman!"

    More clips of Tori's various music videos are shown as well as photographs of her. The next person to speak on her is Jenny Eliscu form Rolling Stone Magazine, "She's obviously a beautiful woman, the face the hair."

    More music and clips from "A Sorta Fairytale." The next person to speak is Sla Michel form Spin Magazine, "She's very ethereal. She definitely seems like she's, you know, in her own universe a lot of times."

    More clips from various music videos and the last person to speak was Melissa Ethridge again, "I look forward to her being around for a long, long time. I think she's wonderful!

    This was a nice little tribute to Tori!
