Wrong programme grin
I actually like the new twist, It should stop situations like we had last year with Jordan - who was atrocious. But also transgender. So when they all turned around to see who they had dismissed and twigged that, they were all gushy and 'oh my goodness, I should have turned for you, gawguss'. But it didn't change the fact she couldn't sing. It annoyed me. grin as did the fact she was later allowed to continue on the show when someone dropped out.

But back to this year- the early start for 'Let it Shine ' meant that it inexplicably beat the Voice in the ratings. I think the fact the Voice has been so pants in the past also stopped people tuning in.

So- dh has gone out to buy me vodka. I've had A BAD DAY. This has to cheer me up, or else grin

Wahoooo I'm here! Off to shout at Let it Shine first but I shall return!

GaryB is getting on my tits already grin Could he have a more annoying voice?!

Evening Raahh, tell DH to get the biggest bottle in the shop grin
Not bothering at all with that boring Barry Barlow rubbish tonight, no point if I'm not allowed to slag anyone off on the thread!
I was very underwhelmed by the voice last week, hoping it's better this week

Roussette Sat 14-Jan-17 19:10:58

Can't I slag off Let it Shine?! Oh dear... I might have to restrain myself.... eeeek!

nancy75 Sat 14-Jan-17 19:12:05

They got a bit uppity last week, it's one of those weird threads where they actually like stuff, not for me at all grin

The80sweregreat Sat 14-Jan-17 19:16:17

Nancy, they were a bit ' get off my thread ' over there, but your safe here.

Hope we've all survived the snow and floods and feeling good.
Raahh, im doing dry jan and struggling a bit. I like a drink on a saturday.
hope your vodka helps tonight.
See you later

Roussette Sat 14-Jan-17 19:18:03

Nancy, all your fault, I've just had to go over there and say how much GaryB the tax dodger annoys me. Oh dear. grin

Raahh Sat 14-Jan-17 19:24:49

Nancy grin

Rousette you are very welcome to slag off 'Let it Shine'. And 'The Voice'. And anything else that takes your fancy. grin

I went over tonight, because I swear I recognised the first bloke. But I still can't decide what is going on. And just because they can sing, how do we know they can act? And just because members of Take That couldn't dance or could hardly sing, (which kept getting brought up last week) well, that's irrelevant. This is about finding people who can hold an audience's attention on the West end. Actors are different to 'bands'.

Raahh Sat 14-Jan-17 19:25:53

80s- I haven't had a drink all week, and wasn't planning too tonight.

I then decided 'sod it' grin

Well hello!

Was glad to see my fave Welsh boyo back in his turny chair last week. How come no Boy George though?

p.s what's that bollox on BBC1? Cruise ship auditions with Gary Barlow.

Raahh Sat 14-Jan-17 19:37:06

squoosh- it is nice to have S'Tom back.

The Shine thing is really quite odd. At least it didn't have the cringy singing opening bit with Mel and Graham singing like last week. Unless I missed it.

The80sweregreat Sat 14-Jan-17 19:42:31

Im so tempted to give up and have a glass of wine but dh goes on that im a lightweight if i do! He is doing it too, so its a standoff till the 31st! Lol
Not long to go.

Roussette Sat 14-Jan-17 19:47:31

It's all alright S'Tom coming back but with the endless advertising, DH keeps going round saying "Yeah" in a TJ voice which is making me a bit murderous TBH, grin

Raahh Sat 14-Jan-17 19:48:02

80s- be strong! I'm better at doing the 'dry' thing when it's not an official thing. Because I'm bloody minded like that. grin. I managed most of September to the end of November. with one weekend off for a wedding.

I watched an entire series of The Voice sober once. (until the final, my sister's 40th birthday party --party one of about 8--) . I wasn't even pregnant shock. It as hard work. grin.

Destinysdaughter Sat 14-Jan-17 19:48:20

Dry January?

Fuck that shit. ( But good for you )

Cheers! grin

Raahh Sat 14-Jan-17 19:49:07



squoosh Sat 14-Jan-17 19:49:21

I'm having champagne tonight 80s so I'll have an extra glass on your behalf.

Because I'm selfless like that.

Raahh Sat 14-Jan-17 19:50:16

The thing I can't get over with 'Let it Shine' is how dated all the songs are that they are singing.

we now have a lovely man singing Lionel Ritchie 'All night long'. grin

Raahh Sat 14-Jan-17 19:51:44

I'm having a drink to toast the dog's birthday.

The80sweregreat Sat 14-Jan-17 19:52:42

Squoosh, bless ya! Cheers! ( clinks my diet coke ) roll on feb!

The80sweregreat Sat 14-Jan-17 19:53:30

How old is Ike now?

Destinysdaughter Sat 14-Jan-17 19:55:18

Raah that's a v good reason!grin

Roussette Sat 14-Jan-17 19:55:30

I've done 2 dry Januarys (2015 and 2016) and planned to do this one BUT I was ill for 2 weeks over Christmas and I wanted to celebrate feeling better that's my excuse

Did anyone watch the Brits nomination programme earlier? I only caught Rag n Bone Man who was amazing
