I followed Beagle 2 for years before launch. I was studying for a degree in physics with the OU at the time, and am a keen amateur astronomer. I remembering being very excited about this mission.

Indeed he was. This is not really the right forum, wrong audience in here. This place is more for the trash mag crowd.

I am still sad we never saw the fruits of Beagle 2. But it was an amazing...

Why not? It's her career, she's not a charity worker. If you were offered two jobs, similar in specs, but one is offering more money, then you would go for more money. If, all things being equal, one...

Same here! There are loads they don't turn around for, those with pure voices, obvious maturity and control, and who connect to the music. But they go for the affected minnie mouse screechy stuff,...

That's a rather broad, and inaccurate generalisation. I hope your world view has made you feel all high brow and special.

What I have some issue with is the 'chase your dream and it will happen' mentality the judges were spouting. Sad fact is, no matter how hard someone chases their dream in the music industry, most...

In terms of voice none of them stood out hugely for me. Kenny Thomspon had a pure voice that wasn't 'too pure'. It was an honest kind of voice and very smooth, and it would have been too easy to go...

I liked her voice, and had a feeling Will would go for her (even if she wasn't the last), but I actually preferred the other one. Wasn't much in it, and song choice could had made a big difference in...

Agreed, and same here. Only have watched 3 of them so far, not sure if I'll tune in again. They are laying on the narrative way too thickly for my tastes

I agree with you, and of course it's all down to personal taste. It's not my taste, at least not yet, I'd need to hear how she copes with other songs. I could see how this vocal contortion could work...

I wonder how well it will translate into other songs. Will need someone very clever to pick songs for her. But good luck to her.

What was unique?

She knows how to raise the back of her tongue to the roof of her mouth (to muffle), sing through her nose and use the rasp of her throat at the same time, whilst singing. It's not...

I thought she did a great job at Skyfall, but probably not the best choice, due to the original being so close and infamous. I agreed with Will to a point. If you are going to do an Adele song in the...

Imo, she connects. The sheer joy and...

Oh dear. You cannot read anything meaningful into a few seconds of video. Context is everything, and only the people involved know the context.

Seriously, this forum is getting worse.
