or maybe not. grin

Here are the mooted song choices...

Matt Terry
Wham! - I’m Your Man

Ryan Lawrie
The Beatles - Twist & Shout

Emily Middlemas
One Direction - What Makes You Beautiful

Sam Lavery
Girls Aloud - I’ll Stand By You

Honey G
Kris Kross - Jump

Saara Aalto
Girls Aloud - Sound of The Underground

5 After Midnight
Spice Girls - Say You'll Be There
Madcon / Little Mix - Beggin/Wings

Four of Diamonds
Wilson Phillips - Hold On

It's a bit of a mixed bag. I'm not sure I'd call The Beatles a boyband in the Westshoite meaning of the word. grin

I do not want to see Honey G jumping grin.
I think 4oD might do a reasonable jog of 'Hold On'.
I have visions of Elfish with a host of Elfish clones in a scary ott Girls Aloud version of the video.

(which, wierdly, I was telling ds , was number one the week he was born. Christmas 2002).

Off to a firework display, having only just warmed up from watching dd1 play football this morning. See y'all later, possibly a bit late.

Sound of the underground is the only GA song i like! They went downhill after that.. Just my opinion of course! ( and they are much richer than me ) ..
Sam should do well. Love Hold on, a fist clencher classic.

Enjoy the fireworks, going mad round here!

Lordy there's some songs on that list I absolutely loathe let alone when they're sung by amateurs cue lots of wine to cope

Raahh Sat 05-Nov-16 18:22:59

I love the actual bonfires, but it's rare we get near to it. The displays are good. But there are a lot around here. tbh, we don't really need to go outgrin

It's v v cold out tonight, much better to stay in the sofa and rip the piss out of this bloody shower. I have a feeling it's going to be especially bad tonight! 😀😱🙉

The80sweregreat Sat 05-Nov-16 18:28:36

I do like fireworks, once the 5th is over i can think about Christmas.. But not actually do anything about it.
Robbie W is on this weekend, he was on Graham Norton today on radio 2. his wife was annoying, it was more the Ada Field interview!

The80sweregreat Sat 05-Nov-16 18:32:04

Destiny, hope one of your FWB are around this weekend to keep you warm..😄or cover your ears from the 'singing'!

Destinysdaughter Sat 05-Nov-16 19:22:39

The80s ha no I'm on my own tonight, recuperating on the sofa on my own as I didn't get home till 3 last night after going to a club! 😈

The80sweregreat Sat 05-Nov-16 19:24:25

I remember those days! I get to ten o clock now and my bed is calling. I am a lightweight!

TheFairyCaravan Sat 05-Nov-16 20:03:04

Hello everyone.

SayCoolNowSayWhip Sat 05-Nov-16 20:07:46

I hate fireworks, I have wine

That's pretty much my mantra for life.

Roussette Sat 05-Nov-16 20:07:51

Hello all. I've seen the haka with the All Blacks on the rugby so hot to trot with xfactor now grin

Destinysdaughter Sat 05-Nov-16 20:07:57

Ooh love a bit of Wham! Wonder if Matt will have a sock stuffed down his trousers like they used to?! 😱

NoisyBrain Sat 05-Nov-16 20:08:44

Evening. I am eating dinner and rudely watching this thread at the same time grin OH doesn't mind though, he knows I need you guys to get me through this shower of shit!

NoisyBrain Sat 05-Nov-16 20:09:45

God this is a bland performance. "Woo" ing isn't helping, Matt.

TheFairyCaravan Sat 05-Nov-16 20:10:18

This isn't good at all.

Roussette Sat 05-Nov-16 20:10:37

Bleedin' hell. this is awful. To my untrained ears

The80sweregreat Sat 05-Nov-16 20:11:57

Destiny, i didnt know that! I was a Wham! fan. Sad but true.

NoisyBrain Sat 05-Nov-16 20:12:50

Looks like Nicole's been sharing her meds with Simon tonight.

Destinysdaughter Sat 05-Nov-16 20:13:18

Nicolehas bloody lost it! And sooo early on😱

The80sweregreat Sat 05-Nov-16 20:13:36

Nics been up the pharmacy with her trolley on wheels.

dillite Sat 05-Nov-16 20:13:49

Evening! I'm late as usual- we were watching a neighbour's firework display- they must have spent some serious money on them as they went on for at least 5 minutes.

Nicole looks gorgeous tonight.

I went to a wedding a few years ago, Andrew Ridgely was there. He was the most arrogant, horrible person. I was so disappointed.

Raahh Sat 05-Nov-16 20:14:43

Well, I'm back, I am an cold.
That did sound quite poor. Not missed much, have I? grin
