I’m going to give the miserable curmudgeon from Middlesbrough my vote. He’s a great songwriter and musician, and while I don’t like all his material, there’s no denying he’s penned a few classics, with this being one of them - in my humble opinion that is 😉
Was tempted to tell Janice and Simon to get a room. There was some kind of Chemistry going on, it seemed, Janice looking like a lovelorn puppy at times!
There were a few things I liked here too. But I decided against picking Tom Jones with his revival of 'It's Not Unusual' because that would not be fair to the others. Nor the Middlesbrough Miseryguts- as mentioned above- with a video which I suspect was NOT filmed on, in or anywhere near Teesside.
Without going into much detail, I will pass over Samantha Fox- I reminder how long the ridiculoud fashion of torn jeans has been going on, ABC- nice enough but not enough either, or CKTC- looking tired by now and not pleasant. And who would guess that Broken English were English if you only looked at the video.
No, in effect I have been won over by something I did not expect. Who could resist the charms and delightfulness of a potato version of Lieutenant Uhura, space pizza or an alien that likes like Gordon the Gopher? Star Trekkin' it is then. All together now 'There's Klingons On The Starboard Bow.....' ( The effect of night work is curdling my sense of reason ).
I actually thought this was a really good show, and could have voted for just about every act. Sam Fox looked great opening the show, Tom Jones with one of his all time classics, Curiosity were good and really seemed to be having a great time, and the Firm with a song that i haven't heard in ages, (not to be confused with super group The Firm, with Paul Rodgers, Jimmy Page, Chris Slade and Tony Franklin), but this weeks vote has to go to ABC.
