It's Monday! And we're reviewing a show based around a chart which is now over a week old, making us as up to date and as cutting edge as a Status Quo concert. Hooray for crap BBC scheduling. Here's what we learnt:-
- For a song called It's Like That there's a disappointing lack of breakdance based battling in Mariah Carey's performance.
- Johnny Borrell of Razorlight really wishes he could be somewhere else. So do we, Johnny, so do we.
- Studio B's I See Girls is not the theme song to an erotic version of The Sixth Sense, but is instead an attempt to overcompensate for the singer being gay and not being prepared to admit it.
- Eminem is releasing Mockingbird as a single. Does anyone remember when he was actually good?
- Basement Jaxx are not as good as they seem to think they are.
- The New Entry Filler Segment was back. This week it was decided that Morrissey, Rachel Stevens and Kylie weren't good enough to be featured in full. Fuckwits.
- Lemar is the dullest person currently working in the music industry.
- And that includes the accountants.
- Tony Christie is still number one. Thanks to Sophie and Wil for letting us know that it's Heather Mills who's dressed up as Dorothy in the video. We did think it might have been Lowri Turner, but looking at the video again, it's quite clear that the girl there is a foot shorter. Now that we've got that sorted out, if anyone can tell us who the bloke who isn't Peter Kay is in the bit were Tony Christie appears, we'll be similarly grateful. Thanks!
