Her and her husband also performed both ending songs.

Anyone else going to Anime Midwest to see her?

I have to say, I honestly don't understand why everyone seems to ♥♥♥♥♥♥ over the voice acress.

All she did was speak her lines in monotone, and then had it(her voice) effected digitally. Autotuned, if you will.

There really isn't anything spectacular or amazing about her lining GLaDOS.

Well, true, but she's really sweet in person too. Her voice wasn't necessarily entirely monotone for them to edit it, the basis of the voice is still distinctly hers.

She built her character wonderfully. The character arc in Portal, from passive-aggressive to desperate and insane until she finally became utterly unhinged and evil, was executed perfectly. She delivered her lines with razor-sharp precision.

In Portal 2 her character arc was even more complex and she handled it brilliantly, injecting pathos into a character that we previously knew as pure evil and yet still keeping the essence of the character. Brilliant.

Exactly. The writers were superb too, but the tone and intonation was hers.
It's things like this that make me wish I was in America...

Ellen and John are wonderful at acting.

The character, a robot would be expected to speak monotone most of the time.

But she's Team Fortress 2's the announcer too. That's hardly monotone.
