4 of Diamonds are back, I'm a little disappointed in Honey Fucking G's choice.

I am here in body this week, but have a cold that is making me a bit deaf. I'm thinking this can only be a good thinggrin
See y'all later. I have lemsip, and rhubarb crumble. (if it lasts that long).

The80sweregreat Sat 15-Oct-16 16:34:07

Rhubarb crumble ! ( save us some for later!)
hi, hope we're all well and ready to rumble. Not heard of Honey G's song before, but might 'know it when I hear it'
Dh and I went to a music quiz night last night - out of 15 tables ( of various size quizzers from 2 ( us two) to about 15 ) we came 3rd from last. not happy. mind you, I know I;m old, but some of the songs were from the 50s early 60's so had no hope at all, never heard of half the groups or singers in each round. I tend to do better on quiz master with Ken bruce in the week... Glad that the diamonds are back. That's a good call. see you later on.

Raahh.... sorry you have a cold BUT being a bit hard of hearing is really going to work in your favour. grin There's some songs in that lot I really like and they are going to be decimated!

NoisyBrain Sat 15-Oct-16 17:59:28

Raahh I agree partial deafness could be a distinct bonus based on what some acts will do to those song choices - hope you're not feeling too rough though.

The80sweregreat Sat 15-Oct-16 18:04:00

Everyone i know has a cold or cough. Not sure where these germs all come from.
Not over keen on Motown myself, but i like Freddys song and i know its going to be pretty bad!

gunting Sat 15-Oct-16 18:06:46

It was shite last week but I do like four of diamonds..

Dillite2 Sat 15-Oct-16 19:52:30

I would love to have a cold that makes me deaf. Might make them sound decent.

I will be here, just need to put DD to bed and to fetch my laptop from upstairs.

EmmaMacGill Sat 15-Oct-16 19:57:50

Wish I was a bit hard of hearing tonight, am not drinking as I'm feeling very tired hungover and I only enjoy X Factor when I'm a bit Shazza'd

EmmaMacGill Sat 15-Oct-16 19:58:55

Looking forward to seeing 4 of Diamonds though, liked them in judges houses

Raahh Sat 15-Oct-16 20:02:39

Thanks, everyone. I'm not feeling too bad. A bit sbotty and my throat is rough. Coughing is dangerous tena pads at the ready.grin

It seems 4 of Diamonds are a very popular choice.

TheFairyCaravan Sat 15-Oct-16 20:03:35

Evening everyone.

Sorry about your cold Raahh. I'm at the tail end of it.

Raahh Sat 15-Oct-16 20:04:15

Bad idea to have an opening act that are better than the actual acts are going to be grin

NoisyBrain Sat 15-Oct-16 20:04:46

I liked 4 of Diamonds too. Motown week should be perfect for them

The80sweregreat Sat 15-Oct-16 20:05:17

Thank god for tena pads eh? Fun being a woman. Not.
Nicole's knickers!
Are they drunk yet?

NoisyBrain Sat 15-Oct-16 20:05:55

Pleather alert!

TheFairyCaravan Sat 15-Oct-16 20:05:58

God they've been pleathered!

NoisyBrain Sat 15-Oct-16 20:06:19

Fairy snap grin

nancy75 Sat 15-Oct-16 20:06:25

Evening all, reporting for duty.
I think it's about time we had some mumsnet names for the acts!

Raahh Sat 15-Oct-16 20:06:41

Fairy- hope you get rid of it soon, fairy. I've not had it too bad, I blame it on close proximity to small children.

At least this lot have more personality than the Brooks' brothers. They were rather dull. and definitely only picked because they fit in with Louis's identikit idea of 'pretty boy'.

EmmaMacGill Sat 15-Oct-16 20:06:42

Oh Rahh Hope the rhubarb crumble is helping, do you have custard?

TheNorthWestPawsage Sat 15-Oct-16 20:08:06

I like 4 of diamonds but why is the 2nd girl wearing my grannie's bra?

The80sweregreat Sat 15-Oct-16 20:08:28

Yes, need nicknames.
They are v mid class yah?
Reakon his mates with the Middletons

nancy75 Sat 15-Oct-16 20:08:31

Freddy a mummy definitely strikes me as someone that lives on the breadline

NoisyBrain Sat 15-Oct-16 20:09:25

nancy we have been slacking a little on the nicknames haven't we?

TheFairyCaravan Sat 15-Oct-16 20:09:49

This song is too big for him.
