I think the Century marker is quite an arbitrary one. For me what starts with 'Star Wars' in terms of spectacle is still in development with LOTR, Harry Potter, Avatar and the superhero movies. There...

I can see Perrie quite easily leading a group like that. And Perrie is a better singer.
In this case the song needs to be more clearly defined as a rock song. It reminds me of Transvision Vamp.

When everything is viewed so easily, so quickly and so often, it's currency is reduced.

I thought Revelation Avenue might have benefitted a little as some will remember them from BGT.

Siobhan Fahey was also in Bananarama who were almost the only UK girl group in the 80s and really only sang in chorus not harmony.

The video for 'Stay' was quite startling. And the lead vocals were...

What Revelation Avenue brought to that performance today was soul.
LM can think about how they get soul into their music because that's what has been missing. And as I say you don't actually need a...

If you want to know what GA brought to the table, it was some great pop songs, irrespective of the production behind them. 'Sound of the Underground', 'Biology', 'The Promise', 'Love Machine'. Also...

Let's not get carried away and dissing other acts. GA had a different pop sensibility and many of their songs were pop classics on their own terms. Pop music isn't all about technique. Nadine and...

Well, the Live Lounge was something else. The Gospel mashup was brilliant and it's all so bright and uplifting. Doing a Whitney song like that was very creative. I don't see why a Motown type song...

I would like them to segue into 'Girls just want to have fun' at the end, especially if it is an encore.

Immersive Entertainment! Does that not require that VR headgear or something?

'Happy' is ok. But 'Cheerleader' is irritatingly repetitive and light. You are perfectly entitled to like it, I don't.

Well looking through the Billboard top 100, the U.S. Is being 'snootier' about a lot of pretty generic and quite boring music. It's got that awful 'Cheerleader' at no 1, for example.

There may be something about WoC not getting proper recognition in pop but it's been an issue for some time.

Personally, I don't think of Keisha or Leigh-Anne as 'exotic' just fantastic looking.
