It was nice to see the vintage 1930s Green Line coach ( a 10T!0 for the initiated).One of only two in existence. Only trouble is that it would have been long gone in 1959 !

Amazed that Anne was not sure what a marimba is !!

Good so far but I wish the cameras wouldn't keep going into soft focus - it's very distracting.

Quite agree - best act yet
The rest of the show has been dire - I can remember when the Royal Variety Show was the high spot of the year - nowadays it's mostly pop groups

Going back to the title of this thread, Zorba the Greek was quite wrong as it is NOT in tango rhythm. Actually there are two legitimate rhythms for the tango - the 'Parisian rhythm' and the...

The infantile clapping along with nearly every piece (often on the wrong beat) must be very confusing for the dancers; it drowns out the orchestra's rhythm section and completely ruins my enjoyment...

Another game ruined for me by someone taking the minus. I normally support the contestants - I can't now! Nothing brave about it, in my opinion.
