  • Mood:

U.K. as seen by Keith


We're running badly late at this stage (blame Mr.Putin). We're finally at the second last song of the day, from the U.K.. There's a feel of "Tiatanic" about the set and that's quite appropriate for this dated cruise ship cabaret song and routine. Jade once again starts the song from a seated position and that could be responsible for the shakey lower notes at the start of the performance, although she did hit the high notes towards the end. There are four incongrous violinists (that last thing his contest needs is more people faking playing the violin) and of course Andrew Lloyd-Webber has better things to do than sit through a Eurovision rehearsal, so once again we have a stand-in.

Jade is the first singer to use the platform in front of the main performing area and this might help her interact with the audience, which she noticably doesn't do for most of the song. I have already been quoted as saying this song manages the rather difficult trick of being both repiticious and unmemorable and today I will update that slightly to say that this is exceptional, but only in its dullness. It will do better than the U.K.'s recent results (the good draw and Andrew Lloyd-Webber's millions have guaranteed that) but right now I don't see this reaching the left side of the scoreboard.
