I will make this exciting if it kills me grin

I saw Cleopatra Coming Atcha on the breakfast news, saying how much she and Will-He-Go? have in common hmm. She reckons their careers have been similar - what with him being in an internationally successful band, having a solo career and being a producer.
And her having done a song with her sisters and all.
It's just the same really.

Also, this is the first week they let the stylists have a crack. Shall we play wrap-dress bingo?

I think all the has beens should step aside! I love the Voice though my ds and dp laugh every time they see Tom!

Is it only her, from the Has Beens? I can't remember who got through. I need a list of teams, I will go look.

No there is a boy who kind of made it in the US I think and another couple,I like the girl from northern ireland

Pics of tonight's battlers here - I don't think we know/care about actual names, do we?
48 to whittle down this weekend, bloody hell. It's like the Jesus Marathon all over again.

Cleopatra was one of those annoying groups/singers that had to name check themselves in their songs, just in case we didn't know who they were.
See also - Craig David, and... Jessie Jgrin
It's on tomorrow as well,isn't it?

I think ear plugs are in order, as it will doubtless get very shouty grin

And yes, wrap dresses for the Adele tribute acts are a must. And lots of pleathergrin.

Did Cleopatra have a show on Citv or am I dreaming?

I missed the girl who is partially sighted, I think she is the neice of a 'country' singer from over here called Philomena Begley.
I can only hope to god she is vastly different from her.

cocolepew Sat 11-May-13 16:19:57

Good grief, I've just seen it's on until nearly 10. DH will be delighted.

Raahh Sat 11-May-13 16:27:31

coco- yup

Cleopatra

didn't realise how long ago it was!

afternoon all

Over here cocolepew? Where are you again?

Arf Raah at the name checking. Also Fresh Prince of BA and Five. Or 5ive who are now 4our.

So, one drink, or malteser, for all of the following:

Wrap dress
Sparkly tunic
Giving it any more than is mathematically possible.
Pleather
Stomping and pointing at the floor in a Street sort of way. (Much stomping in the battle rounds last year)
Air grab
Jessie J singing
Danny taking any excuse to hug his new Fwends

Any more?

N.Ireland. we have a long history of crap country singers.

I was too old for the Cleopatra tv show. It must have been knockibg about when DD1 was small.

Crotch grabbing.
Waving finger in opponents face, head shake optional.
Standing looking incredulous at opponents.
Most, if not all of these, will be done by her with the mohican.

Of course you are, I forgot.
Joe Dolan? Or worser still?

Her with the mohican is singing orf against CleopatraComingAtcha

cocolepew Sat 11-May-13 17:16:49

Worse. Her and Hugo Duncan, The Wee Man From Straban <shudder>

Ohhh lots of attitude then. Probably even a couple of neck wiggles.

noddyholder Sat 11-May-13 17:26:13

I went to a country fair with philomena begley singing when I was a child Hideous!

cocolepew Sat 11-May-13 17:31:34

Noddy sad

Poor Noddy. With some therapy, you may one day forget.

YY, necksnaking and Hip Showbiz Fingers all over the shop.

cocolepew Sat 11-May-13 17:36:21

And singing in American accents.
Like they come from South Central LA instead of Brum, or wherever. guuurlfriend

We're all expecting to be in a drink or sugar-induced coma by ten.

Raahh Sat 11-May-13 18:27:01

I will drink copious amounts of water instead (and go for a wee during JJ's comments)grin
