So- in case you've forgotten who the groups were- here's a re-cap.
(It won't help)
I do remember Rat Soup though.
And some of the songs.

And there's a NEW GIRL BAND! With Imagen (!) in it. But sadly not Ronseal. sad

Fuse ODG - Azonto


Paula Abdul – Straight Up



Beyonce – I Was Here


A Great Big World – Say Something


Christina Aguilera – Ain’t No Other Man / Jessie J – Bang Bang (acoustic)



Change Your Mind (original)


Boyz II Men – I’ll Make Love To You


David Guetta ft. Nicki Minaj – Hey Mama

I have a cold. So have lemsip and roasted peanuts. I might stretch to wine - for medicinal purposes, later.

Evening Raahh have a brew . That's the nearest I could get to a Lemsip for you.

I'm having to identify foods that are making me feel sick/have heartburn, at the moment. So far it's crisps (sobs on floor) and cheese (howls). Tonight therefore I shall be watching with a cup of tea sad

As for the groups. I feel like I've been watching a different show. I think I recognise 3 in your list. Still, the arena is filling up, the bears are baited and Simon (or rather his assistant) is ironing his jeans in readiness.

Evening nice .

Heartburn is evil. Thankfully, it is something I only got when pg- but only with the girls. I spent months drinking gaviscon and banana milk shake (I hate milk as rule) grin.

I recognise the family group, and Ratsoup. They have probably changed a couple of names- that tends to happen at this stage due to there being other random groups somewhere in the world with the same name.

There needs to be more of a twist than just separating the judge from the rest of the pack though. sad

Hi , !
I pad running slow.
Do not reconise any of these groups raahh.
Who is in charge? Is it Si?

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 14-Oct-17 19:06:11

I came on to start a thread, But see you already have Raahh smile You do them better than me, More info for everyone grin I agree re the twist, it's not exactly that tough for them as they still get input from the other judges anyway.

I am nursing a hangover, So will be sticking to brew tonight.

80's Si has got the groups.

Raahh Sat 14-Oct-17 19:07:30

I think it's Simon tonight, and Nicole tomorrow. But it's on for 2 hours tonight, so it's very possible it would be Louis as well tonight?

The format is all over the place, so who know?grin

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 14-Oct-17 19:07:39

nice I would be a heaped mess on the floor if I couldn't have cheese and crisps, I had awful heartburn in both my pregnancies with my DD's, I lived off of Gaviscon, Rennies and milk and ice cream grin

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 14-Oct-17 19:08:54

We will probably see a few of louis's acts and the rest tomorrow.

The80sweregreat Sat 14-Oct-17 19:13:14

Hello ladies!
Its good to see you all.

Raahh Sat 14-Oct-17 19:13:45

Evening all. grin

I probably shouldn't have gone to watch dd1 play football. But it wasn't raining (for a change) so decided to go along. But all the standing around was not much fun. The lemsip has kicked in. I might have a small glass of medicinal wine grin.

I'm watching Strictly. I've decided the new judge doesn't like the female contestants at all, and over marks the men however crap they are. IMO grin

The80sweregreat Sat 14-Oct-17 19:15:56

Raahh, i do not like Shirley Ballas. She is faker than louis pretending nothing happened with Slavvy! ( or whatever his name is)
Women suffer on strictly.

Raahh Sat 14-Oct-17 19:18:38

80s she is fake, isn't she? I miss Len.

The80sweregreat Sat 14-Oct-17 19:21:25

I miss len ' pickle me walnuts '
He spoke sense.
This woman grinds mine! 😂😃
I hope they get rid.

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 14-Oct-17 19:22:59

I don't like her either, I agree she over compliments the men and slates the women, Didn't she replace Arlene (think that's her name)

The80sweregreat Sat 14-Oct-17 19:25:40

I liked Arlene. She wasnt fake.

Raahh Sat 14-Oct-17 19:26:16

Arlene left a while back, Music, I think Alesha Dixon was her first replacement, before Darcy. I think Shirley was brought in to replace Len as head judge.

I like Strictly, but I'm too scared to venture on the thread grin

The80sweregreat Sat 14-Oct-17 19:27:21

Raahh, dont, they write missives on technique and stuff. Its deadly serious

Raahh Sat 14-Oct-17 19:27:51

I watched the original 1982 film version of Annie last week. Arlene did the choreography for that, irrc. I remember going to see it at the cinema after I'd seen it on a dodgy grainy pirate video. grin

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 14-Oct-17 19:28:54

Oh yeah, That was it grin I have a terrible memory, Alesha didn't get on well at all did she, I don't like the new judg, Hopefully she will get replaced along with Claudia -fringe- Winkleman.

The80sweregreat Sat 14-Oct-17 19:29:19

Shirley hates women.

Raahh Sat 14-Oct-17 19:29:25

80s I know, I'll stick to derailing this thread instead. i made the mistake of trying to take 'x factor thread' humour over there about 8 years ago.

I never went back. grin

MusicToMyEars800 Sat 14-Oct-17 19:29:38

I've never ventured onto the Strictly thread either grin

The80sweregreat Sat 14-Oct-17 19:30:43

This thread is more ' laid back '

Raahh Sat 14-Oct-17 19:32:15

And poor Charlotte.
She suffers by association with Brendan, I think. I know she's not great, but they rip her to shreds far more than some of the others.

The80sweregreat Sat 14-Oct-17 19:32:29

Its funny how certain threads are no go areas! 😀
