* It is not uncommon for the actor playing Fyedka in productions of FiddlerOnTheRoof to see how long he can hold the "''Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaa''zaaaaaaar" in "L'Chaim (To Life)" - with said actor usually holding it until the audience starts applauding. It is also not uncommon for betting to be going on backstage about when said actor will pass out.

* The end of Music/WeirdAlYankovic's song ''Film/SpyHard'', has him singing an incredibly ''high'' note for so long, that '''his head [[YourHeadASplode explodes]]!''' Apparently they were originally planning to extend the note digitally, but then they discovered that [[MomentOfAwesome Weird Al could actually hold the note that long all on his own]].

* "And I Am Telling You I'm Not Going" from ''{{Theatre/Dreamgirls}}'' is one of the best-known examples in modern theater; it includes not one but '''two''' Incredibly Long Notes at the end, back to back. This is the reason Jennifer Holiday won a Tony in 1982 and Jennifer Hudson an Oscar in 2007. ''There is no mediocrity with this song.'' Performing it is either a singer's MomentOfAwesome or biggest {{Epic Fail}}ure.

* Happens a few times in the EurovisionSongContest, though due to the maximum length rule they don't last as long as most of the other examples already listed. The longest note in the contest, according to its creative team, happens at the end of Mary Spiteri's 1992 Maltese entry [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oP4LkOoRdcE "Little Child,"]] in which the last note lasts for 13 seconds.

* In ''{{Chowder}} Grows Up'', Chowder holds the last note of his [[IWantSong "I Don't Want To Grow Up" song]] so long that a TimeSkip occurs in the interim. He, in fact, grows up over the course of holding that note.
