...but I'm surprised and delighted by the lack of J-Hud.

and 'Ice Ice Baby'? Even Jedward is preferable to Honey fucking G now.
Elfish doing 'Oh So quiet' will get shouty and desperate, and she might even wear a Bjork-ish swan costume. I hope she does. grin

Here are the choices-

The Boys
Matt Terry
Mariah Carey - I’ll Be There

Ryan Lawrie
Adele - Rolling in The Deep

The Girls
Emily Middlemas
Whitney Houston - How Will I Know

Sam Lavery
Michael Jackson - Earth Song

Gifty Louise
Sam Smith - Lay Me Down

The Overs
Honey G
Vanilla Ice / Queen - Ice, Ice Baby/Under Pressure

Relley C
Aretha Franklin - Natural Woman

Saara Aalto
Bjork - Oh So Quiet

The Groups
5 After Midnight
Amy Winehouse - Valerie

Four of Diamonds
Lady Marmalade/Bang Bang - May, Pink / Lil' Kim, Jessie J, Arianna Grande.

The same songs are appearing series upon series, with boring regularity now. I HATE 'Earth Song' Poor Made Under Sam. sad

I wonder if Emily will turn 'how will I know' into a ballad? of all Whitney's big Diva songs, it's not one I'd instantly go for.

I have chocolate fingers and decaf coffee. I have been clearing out dd1's room in readiness for a new bed. It is 'a job I wish I had never started'.

See y'all later!

I'm in!

Have wine. Check

Have food. Check

Have earplugs if necessary. Check


There's a few songs on there I can't abide so I'm preparing myself for this torture I go through!

The80sweregreat Sat 22-Oct-16 18:30:28

Agree about Earth song, awful dirge.
Have wine and snacks.
Nice to see an Amy song and, as Raahh said, no j hud! Result.
I dont see Bjork as a diva myself, but as Homey G seems to do what she likes it doesnt matter i suppose! Am sure it will be a Whitney mash up, at least its not 'i will alway love you! ' ( unless it Dollys version which nobody does! ) ..see ya later.

Hi all was out last week so didn't watch it till Sunday ( reading the thread at the time). God it was dull!

Got gin and tonic to help me get through tonight, see y'all at 8! 😀

The80sweregreat Sat 22-Oct-16 18:32:46

Destiny, love a G and T with ice and a slice..yum..
( have to get some in for christmas)

EmmaMacGill Sat 22-Oct-16 18:42:50

I don't know if I can face it, I haven't got a favourite yet. They're all quite shouty aparty from Emily.

The80sweregreat Sat 22-Oct-16 18:46:11

I like Relley and the 5 after midnight. ( although theres 3 of them! )
Rest are so so.
This thread sees me though, and wine!

theredlion Sat 22-Oct-16 19:11:07

I'm usually late but somehow this week I'm an hour early confused.

Still, I'm settled in with a hot water bottle and lots of hope that it's better this week

The80sweregreat Sat 22-Oct-16 19:17:08

Thered, a hot water bottle! Love it. Winter on its way..leaves are falling..
JL ad is coming.. Better shut up.

Dillite2 Sat 22-Oct-16 19:44:54

Vanilla Ice is a diva? Since fucking when?

It's a good thing I have Ben and Jerry keeping me company tonight.

The80sweregreat Sat 22-Oct-16 19:46:04

I remember Vanilla ice..first time around! Old.

theredlion Sat 22-Oct-16 19:54:28

Hello 80s I was asking about the JL advert on the thread last week, when is it on?

Vanilla Ice was a bit of a diva, just probably not in the way that Whitney is grin

The80sweregreat Sat 22-Oct-16 19:57:16

Hi, red, i think he went in the big bro house once?
He was ok, in the 90s!
Dunno about JL ad, it must be end of november? Not in the know!

Raahh Sat 22-Oct-16 19:57:48

'Ice Ice Baby' reminds me of the only weekend I bothered to go home my first term at uni (deepest Wales, very little transportgrin.The song was being released as it was from the NInja Turtles film, and they performed on the Smash Hits Poll winner's party that weekend.So, Vanilla ice, and a bunch of blokes dressed as Turtles. I remember watching it whilst helping my sister with her college homework grin I couldn't wait to go back to Wales...

Raahh Sat 22-Oct-16 20:00:08

JL advert is usually on (or it was when i worked there) the first weekend of November, but that seems early this year. They have their decorations up, which seem to have a kind of driftwood/seaweed/seashell themeconfused. my mates who still work there don't get it either. grin (it doesn't look very festive).

The80sweregreat Sat 22-Oct-16 20:00:10

Raahh, i was working then, him and East17 were huge that year.. Happy days! Love Wales.

Raahh Sat 22-Oct-16 20:02:26

Vanilla Ice was lovely on Dancing on Ice, I really liked him on that.

I preferred the turtles at the time, though. Big fan of Donatello.

TheFairyCaravan Sat 22-Oct-16 20:03:29

I'm watching but probably won't join in much cause I'm poorly.

dillite Sat 22-Oct-16 20:03:39

I just sang 12 Days of Christmas with dd at the very top of my voice (that was her choice of a bedtime story). I bet I sounded better than Honey G.

nancy75 Sat 22-Oct-16 20:03:40

Evening all! I didn't think Honey G could sing ice ice baby, bowies estate won't give permission?

dillite Sat 22-Oct-16 20:03:56

Sam Lavery sounds like Sam Lavatory.

Raahh Sat 22-Oct-16 20:04:51

Have they run out of money for 'acts' ?

dillite Sat 22-Oct-16 20:05:12

Nicole sounds great. Looks like shit though.

dillite Sat 22-Oct-16 20:05:49

I hate that I'm Every Woman song though.

Polkadotties Sat 22-Oct-16 20:05:49

Nicole can really sing
