Will Smith aka The Fresh Prince was live on BBC One with Graham Norton together with his son Jaden. You expect with this amount of talent in the room a perfomance is inevitable. What isn’t expected is guests to bring on additional unannounced guests which take an A list cast to triple AAA.

Will and Jaden kicked off with some impromptu beat box and rapping. Last time, Will got 8 million viewers for his song with Gary Barlow. To trash the record this time he brought in the amazing Jazzy Jeff! This of course flow smoothly into the Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme song. The crowd knew the lyrics better than son Jaden.

As if this was not amazing enough, Tom Jones’s from the Voice song It’s not unusual was played to introduce the ever amazing Carlton (Alfonso Ribeiro). The three together with Graham did their Jump On It – the origins of Gangnam Style?

Will Smith’s original Fresh Prince of Bel Air TV Show was shown exclusively in the UK by the BBC in the 1990’s.

The live performance without his son but with Gary Barlow and Tom Jones on the sofa with Graham Norton hosting.

Eurovision 2013

Last night music fans across Europe were treated to the largest European music spectacle: the Eurovision Song Contest. As per usual the weird and whacky were out amongst some great artists to showcase the musical talent of their respective country.

This year the event was in Malmo, Sweden after last year’s win by Loreen with the powerful balad Euphoria. Sweden put down a brilliant show. For a change only one host, Petra Mede, a comedienne and television host. I have to say she had some brilliant lines which went well with the crowd.

Naturally the contest had it’s usual curiosity of artists, sometimes leaving the audience speechless.

France seemed to go for a look a like Madonna, Finland went for the gay vote with two girls kissing, the UK decided to go for a golden oldie with Bonnie Tyler, the Netherlands kept it plain and simple with Anouk, Greece’s kilt boys sang about Alcohol is Free and Romania went all out with Cezar’s gothic opera song.

Winner of the night was Denmark’s Emmelie de Forest with Only Teardrops. A catchy current song, with some great flute and drum play.

The morning after the night before many countries are go about conspiracies to defend their losses. The usual political block voting is very popular as well as “we were in the wrong place in the line-up” and many other excuses. Here I was thinking it was all about the song!

Surprisingly, this years main controversy appeared after Denmark’s win – potential plagiarism. Nothing new in this, as it comes up every so often and not only with winning songs.

I wonder what you think?

K-Otic – I Surrender

Most likely you have never heard of the second song as it is by a Dutch Popband, created during one of the first of many singing shows called Starmaker (like X-Factor or American Idol). Just listen to both of them and try to strip away as much of the production, just listen to the rhythm and build. I have to say, to my ear, they do sound very similar, probably about 80% or more. Both are a decent song and I do think Denmark had a fair chance to win. I don’t think they were the best, but they won. These songs have been out for a good couple of months so any protest should have come out earlier.

Still, let me know your thoughts. Leave a comment with Yes for “they are pretty much the same” and No for “they are not, or I don’t care”.

This one has proved to be the most popular shirt this month. Is that because 2012 has seen an increase in chest size or have women finally started to love their curves?

Mariah Carey and Beyoncé are both examples on how music can flow just like the body.

Halloween has origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain (pronounced sow-in), which means roughly “summer’s end”. This Gaelic festival was celebrated mainly in Ireland and Scotland. It marked the end of summer and harvest and the beginning of the dark, cold winter, a time of year that was often associated with human death. Celts believed that on the night of the 31st October the worlds of the living and the dead became thin and blurred and that the ghosts of the dead returned to earth. It is believed that the need to ward off harmful spirits led to the wearing of costumes and masks.

With its roots in Celtic cultures, Halloween is not celebrated in all countries and regions of the world, and among those that do the traditions and importance of the celebration vary significantly. Celebration in the United States has seen a significant impact on how the holiday is observed in other nations. The history of Halloween traditions in a given country also lends context to how it is presently celebrated. But many countries have been influenced by the strongly commercialised version as celebrated in the USA. This to the benefit of many confectionary and costume makers.

Kiki Dee is an inspirational performer from the 70’s. This song, if you listen to the lyrics, is actually quite challenging.

It allows women to go out and just enjoy themselves, without needing a reason. After all Girls Just Want to Have Fun!

 

You can see how fashion has changed, but are they coming round full circle?

One of the best things about this video is it is a live performance and it puts the X-factor to shame as the musicians clearly can play their own instruments.

The upbeat nature of this song can lift even the darkest moods. Avoid classifying it as Disco, it is a much better song and performance then what you currently hear in charts worldwiide.
