Britain’s got Talent

Ok, the snob in you stops you wanting to like this programme.  The human on the other hand says it is utterly astounding.

It’s emotional.  It’s funny.  It gets you talking.  It’s just great.

Susan Boyle’s story is well documented over the past week but tonight was all about “Diversity”, an unlikely male dance group from Lundin made up of a wide age group of youngsters who choreographed the most stunning and original two minute sequence you could imagine.


This is them on YouTube at Lakeside Shopping Centre: 18,000 hits to date.  I suspect that a week from now that might be nearer a million.

Ria gets into FCT’s festival show

FCT’s next show is Ragtime (an adaptation of a book by E L Doctorow) and Ria got a chorus part after auditions on Monday to which 100 kids turned up for 45 places.  We’re all really pleased for her.


Last night was the after show party for the FCT cast which I kept 100% sober (I had to drive) but still managed two whooping full on rave renditions of We are the Children of the night (even sober it was a hoot!)  Ria didn’t know where to look though.  Poor lassie.
