My MIL just told me....
David Walliams is dying on stage but Girls ALoud were good, catchy old number which DS was dancing along to!

jessiegeesusinamanger Mon 03-Dec-12 19:56:42

I have it on and think it's awful! Walliams not funny, Bill Bailey, not funny. Kylie sounds whiney and nasal. Girls Aloud average. If I were Her Maj, I'd be ringing my maid to bring me a Kindle in to alleviate the bordedom

Who have we missed. Going to put it in plus one but dd wants to stay up to watch Matilda cast.

jessiegeesusinamanger Mon 03-Dec-12 20:07:14

You've not missed much imo pictures - Girls Aloud, Kylie, Bill Bailey and One Direction on as we speak.

I tuned in just as Brucie appeared so switched over quick. grin

Picturesinthefirelight Mon 03-Dec-12 20:08:36

Thanks. Want to see the bodyguard cast too to see what its like.

MrsChristmasVamos Mon 03-Dec-12 20:09:08

Variety ? Ha ! What variety ?

Unless it means they sing a different song than what we've heard all year. smile

jessiegeesusinamanger Mon 03-Dec-12 20:12:44

I'm only here for Ashleigh and Pudsey!

MrsChristmasVamos Mon 03-Dec-12 20:21:11

One of the best things I have seen was a couple of years ago I think...Nicole Schwarzerchops sang Phantom. It's on youtube.

Blardy brilliant. Although it's still singing. grin

Pictures - any idea when matilda are on? DD wnats to watch.

Picturesinthefirelight Mon 03-Dec-12 20:36:16

Can't find the running order anywhere I'm afraid

Can't stand the Jenkins woman.

Perhaps controversial, but I really don't understand Robbie's success, he really doesn't have a good voice!

Hulababy Mon 03-Dec-12 20:47:09

Maybe not but he has a very definite stage presence. Have been to a few of his concerts and they are always excellent. Dragged DH to a couple and even he, as a non fan, couldn't fault his stage shows. Guess he has what ITV would call the X factor.

cardibach Mon 03-Dec-12 20:47:47

His voice is nothing to write home abbout, but his comedy appears even worse...

Katla Mon 03-Dec-12 20:49:25

I read in the paper that Prince Philip said at the end that he and Queenie are deaf as a post - probably just as well.

Roll out the oldies eh- Ronnie Corbett, Brucie...

Robbie Williams reminds me of my ex, cocky and esp now he's getting more chunky.

Yes, I do agree with that Hulababy, he has charisma.

Picturesinthefirelight Mon 03-Dec-12 20:50:54

He is great live- really puts on a show.

I also like the fact he uses live musicians a lot.

Picturesinthefirelight Mon 03-Dec-12 20:52:34

Looks like Matilda after the break

My guess is when I grow up with swings. Revolting children would be fab too

And quiet and naughty.

MrsChristmasVamos Mon 03-Dec-12 20:57:11

Matilda NOW !

Picturesinthefirelight Mon 03-Dec-12 20:58:27

I want to cry.

Hulababy Mon 03-Dec-12 20:59:01

Watching smile
DD really wants to go and see it in London.

Picturesinthefirelight Mon 03-Dec-12 20:59:56

It's fab

Picturesinthefirelight Mon 03-Dec-12 21:01:29

If you only go to see one show Matilda should be it.

Picturesinthefirelight Mon 03-Dec-12 21:01:53

Dd is singing quiet in a Xmas concert b

Hulababy Mon 03-Dec-12 21:03:43

The plan is to go and see it early next year; just need to get the tickets booked!
DD sang Naughty in an assembly earlier this year; and in some of her singing lessons.

Picturesinthefirelight Mon 03-Dec-12 21:09:55

Can I confess that I like to sing My House

saintmerryweather Mon 03-Dec-12 21:11:05

the woman singing now is so nasal!

Themobstersknife Mon 03-Dec-12 21:12:46

She was dreadful wasn't she? Had to cover my ears!

CalamityKate Mon 03-Dec-12 21:15:05

I just said on FB that that singer reminded me of Janice off Friends. Ever so nasal.

imnotoldimvintage Mon 03-Dec-12 21:42:30

is the plan to just give advertising to as many shows as possible?!? matilda, that whitney show...rod stewart has a new album out...honestly!!!

beachyhead Mon 03-Dec-12 21:48:27

Did all those people die in 2012?

Picturesinthefirelight Mon 03-Dec-12 21:54:34

Don't think Matilda needs advertising. It's sold out for ages.

Notice all the albums being advertised in the commercial breaks though.

LadyBeagleBaublesandBells Mon 03-Dec-12 21:54:42

I only watched it for Pudsey too.
His act hasn't evolved much has it, though I still love him to bits.

Picturesinthefirelight Mon 03-Dec-12 22:08:21

Why is only one Matilda taking a bow?

LadyBeagleBaublesandBells Mon 03-Dec-12 22:08:37

I enjoyed old Neil there.
I was swaying along to Sweet Caroline blush
