Blimey a lot of repeat offenders!

Not keen on the two presenter model.

I wondered if the oriental looking boy had Marfans. He had very long fingers. Julian is an advert for sending your child to a school. Sounding 50 when you are 17 is sad. Some beautifully played music but not been wowed yet

Urgh hate the two presenters more and more 'the thing is Clemmie....'

Didn't like Julian's playing two years ago but loved it this time.

I like the wee boy playing Mozart

Husband who is musical likes the wee boy and the Chinese girl best. I thought she was overdoing the "feeling the music" and looked a bit hammy.

We like the wee boy best. Why didn't they talk about his school? They said very little about him

Long fingered slightly odd boy wins. Surprised by that

A bit surprised too, though he was good.

I'm sure that YMOTY contestants used to be a bit more, erm, ordinary.

We thought the first boy was the best, but maybe things come over differently in the actual hall.

I was worried for the eventual winner, did he not look very nervous indeed during the first piece, or as if he was about to forget it? His middle piece was beautiful and hauntingly performed though. I very much like the last piece that the girl did.

Also, the 2 presenters basically said the same thing about everyone.

Rapidly.

I thought one of the judges repeated the same thing for each one. grin
dd has her eye on the trophy.
Two more from their school next week. Hope you had a nice holiday and hopefully see you soon, if she decides to come home Fridays.
