Essential Viewing:

Every aspiring singer in any reality show past, present or future should be taken into a room, the door locked and not released until they've watched at least three time a recording of: Shirley Bassey at the Electric Proms as shown last weekend. And told this...is your goal.
Sadly I missed it, but at this very moment (14:15 28/10) it is on a kind of endless showing on the BBC1 red button.
I'll forgive her the botox (I wouldn't do it for everybody!!) and a few of the more difficult notes, especially in the ballads, she is after all 72 years young. She did little more than stand behind a microphone, there were no half-naked boys and girls prancing about, but she had her audience eating out of her hand.
Fabulous...
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Re: Essential Viewing:

I missed it too so will see if the red button can help.  She's a great performer. Smiley  I've seen her twice and she puts everything into her act.  I think she's 72.
She is at the Royal Albert Hall on 12th November for anyone interested.
