I would not quibble with the word "miracle."

Yes, Netrebko's attempts to sing an E flat in 'Lucia' preserved on YouTube
are miraculous all right -- in that they did not result in her being booed
off the stage.

And the woman touted as the next her is simply dreadful.  I've never heard a
singer who could make a portamento that was out of tune, but she has that
trick down pat.  'O tempora, O mores!'.
