COMMENT: Minimal but sparkly outfits brighten up a fairly bland song.

CHAMPAGNE: Peter's intro.  

OTHER LIKES:
Sparkly vests.
Lot's of smiling.
Wiggly bottoms.

SPOTTED:  
Lulu managed to stand in a shadow for most of her close ups.

LIKE:  The strutting walk with the thumbs in the imaginary lapels.

COMMENT:  How to make a glistening dance without overlays;  are you listening Disco Inferno?

CHAMPAGNE: Love the 3-2-1s with Pauline as Actress in a Starring role

OTHER LIKES:  Even the Powell outro is good

SPOTTED:  Was there Blue Peter episode on earlier that day involving Nursery School kids making a TOTP dance set?
Some Dancers who gave a good time, broke all the rules, played all the fools, yeah yeah yeah they blew our minds

All you need is paint, a roller, blunt nosed scissors and some sticky back plastic and here’s one we made earlier.

COMMENT: This Is It, where the sparkle comes from the skimpy costumes rather than Dan Hartman’s song

CHAMPAGNE: Lulu’s criss-cross knee moves

OTHER LIKES: Those elbows out moves that you make when barging your way to the front of a queue

SPOTTED: Contempt for the set, with attempts by Pauline and Sue to knock bits of it down.
All bound for Lulu Land

COMMENT: Always disappointed to hear this isn't the Melba Moore song but the one in need of a hook, plenty of which were on the 'distant relative' costumes worn when performing to the Royal Philharmonic in '81.

CHAMPAGNE: Leave the sparkle to Legs & Co.  

OTHER LIKES:
The opening line-up.
The 'hands on collars, elbows horizontal' move.

SPOTTED: One of the zebra drapes unfortunately obscures Patti alone on more than one occasion.

That might be the reason she retaliates with a few jabs.
