Just look at this song list

Andrea Faustini
Summertime (by Ella Fitzgerald)

Lauren Platt
Smile (by Nat King Cole)

Only The Young
I Wanna Be Like You (From The Jungle Book)

Stereo Kicks
Still TBC!

Ben Haenow
Cry Me A River (by Michael Buble)

Fleur East
Bang Bang (byJessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj)

Jay James
Empire State of Mind/New York New York medley (by Alicia Keys/Frank Sinatra)

Stevi Ritchie
Mambo Number 5/ She Bangs medley (by Lou Bega/Ricky Martin)

I'm sure an orchestra might be involved somewhere, but most of this list is frankly rubbish. Twice. grin
Someone got 'Bang' and 'Band' mixed up.
The best one there is 'TBC' grin

They are all going to be drowned out by the brass section, aren't they? grin

See you later.

Bring nibbles.

Wow how bad must Stereo Kicks have been this week for it still to be confirmed at this late stage!

Fixerupperz Sat 15-Nov-14 11:34:37

Marking place for later grin.

Finola1step Sat 15-Nov-14 11:35:04

Car crash telly. Can't wait. grin

Raahh Sat 15-Nov-14 12:34:18

Got- maybe this is the week when they have a dramatic split- and sing as 2 groups of 4- I'm thinking a Jets v Sharks number. Except that might actually be quite good...

DillydollyRIP Sat 15-Nov-14 12:51:24

Haha, I wanna be like you oo oo!

Davros Sat 15-Nov-14 15:30:34

It really annoys me when songs are attributed to whoever sang the most famous version. Grrrr

Raahh Sat 15-Nov-14 15:44:32

Davros- i agree- although to fair, the Buble arrangement of Cry Me a River is quite distinctive, and different to the Julie London version, for example. His version makes it sound like a Bond themegrin

Name changed, but hi everyone. Got some wine and nibbles in. Didnt Olly Murs do the jungle book song as one of his audition songs? When has it been a big band song? Maybe year 9 have already split over musical differences, or polo ears has gone solo? Notice that Bob and co didnt ask them to sing on Band Aid recording today! I hope lauren does well , one of my fav songs.

Raahh Sat 15-Nov-14 17:05:25

I'm pretty sure Katie Weasel did the Jungle book one too.

They really don't like OTY, do they?

id going to be wondering who Frozen is

RudolphUcker Sat 15-Nov-14 17:05:40

Mickey Bubbles, whudathunk we'd have missed him, him and his shitting in a box?
AWFUL song choices. AWFUL. And not Big Band.

I die to see what spin they put on the VT for Year Nine Wankers.

RudolphUcker Sat 15-Nov-14 17:06:27

Olly Murs did Jungle Book with ApeFace Williams in the Duets round.
also AWFUL

Raahh Sat 15-Nov-14 17:07:08

I've just had the misfortune of hearing Amelia Verruca Lily and various rejects from BGT in my local town centre, where they are turning on the tree lights. I have left Ds and his mates to it- it was all very loud and tunelessgrin

Evenin' all.

I'm dreading hearing Clunt murder Alicia Keys and Frank Sinatra.

And how is Bang Bang a big band song?

RudolphUcker Sat 15-Nov-14 17:18:34

Our lights aren't on till next week. And I have told those of youse on my FB who is turning them on, massive slebs that they are.

What is this Bang bang? not Nancy? not the Bill Je Suis one?

Jill2015 Sat 15-Nov-14 17:22:07

Wine chilling. Looking forward to thread... I mean looking forward to show wink

Raahh Sat 15-Nov-14 17:27:53

No Rudy- this Bang Bang is the one that Jessie J did as a solo spot the other week.

I stick by my 'Bang/Band' mix up theory.

Raahh Sat 15-Nov-14 17:34:30

oh dear- I have just switched CiN highlghts to see S Club 7. Oh dear. I'd say a full scale re-union is not on the cards. Some of them think they can still sing if they ever could .

They had some catchy songs though grin

RudolphUcker Sat 15-Nov-14 17:43:37

Oh yes. I try to blank out Jessie J memories.
I like S club 7 couldn't pick em out a line up

Frozenchipsareawful Sat 15-Nov-14 17:51:37

Any news on Giraffe? I Guess she is busy with her newborn , if you wander on for five, hope your ok.!

Apophenia Sat 15-Nov-14 17:56:11

S Club 7 are were supposed to be announcing their reunion tour on Monday. Their PR people must have died a little last night.

Fixerupperz Sat 15-Nov-14 18:02:20

How good does s sclub Tina look!!

RudolphUcker Sat 15-Nov-14 18:13:32

I have just goggled. Jo looked like someone playing a young Pat Butcher in a flashback prequel 'Stenders special

Raahh Sat 15-Nov-14 18:14:07

Tina looked great, but then she's naturally very pretty.
Jo looked and sounded past her best.

Fixerupperz Sat 15-Nov-14 18:22:49

Jo looked like Shirley Carter grin
