Saturday Night....

Tonight it was Boyzone night on Sky One, which meant a (very telling) documentary about the boy band reforming, followed by a live gig from their current tour.

Take That it was not.

Because, unlike the mighty Take That (the BEST-BOYBAND-EVER in this blogger's humble opinion), Boyzone only looked as if they were going through the motions. I mean...a Michael Jackson medley? "Melting Pot"? Oh come on, you can do better than that. Or maybe not. Enough already!

Prior to the Boyzone-fest on Sky One, ITV gave us "Who Dares Sings" - a new karaoke gameshow. Be afraid, be very afraid, it's a new vehicle for Ben ("Mr (no) personality") Shephard and Denise ("what am I gonna do now "I'd Do Anything" is finished?) Van Outen. And some karaoke singers. OK so it wasn't quite as teeth-pullingly-bad as Sky One's "Don't Forget The Lyrics", and it had its moments (that rendition of "I Believe I Can Fly" was TV gold) - in fact it might be so bad that it requires another viewing next week to remind us just how bad it is.

Next Saturday on BBC-1 sees the arrival of the British version of "Körslaget" retitled "Last Choir Standing", which i was looking forward to until they said that Myleene Klass would be presenting this - who said overexposed? (although we do like Nick Knowles) anyway there is a nice clip on the website of a choir doing a Maroon 5 medley and Mmmbop. This show will either be fantastic or extremely bad. Answers next Saturday.
