The performance gave me a lot of anxious feelings though. That was just by watching it, let alone actually doing it! She is pretty insane, in the best way possible
Awh, shame! I think Slow is just fantastic, such a sensual song and suited Kylie perfectly. That video, heh
Kylie knows her fanbase soo well. I went to see her X tour and she had so many half-naked, buff male dancers on stage. Who at some point seemed to get a bigger reaction from the audiende than Kylie herself. Without reaching #1, I think All The Lovers still did very, very well for her.
I am sure releasing a Spanish album didn't really help her in the long run, no.
Yeah, and I wasn't even thinking about the tabloids but usually people I just speak in person. Who are always like 'great song, but she shouldn't have worn that' and I am always like 'what?' It is quite a misogynist thing to say to be honest. Let the woman wear what she wants to wear.
Yaas! I mean we know Kylie is coming back at least. Maybe some new Britney/Madonna/GaGa as well? Rihanna is bound to release new music. Could it be time for Beyonce as well? So many questions
I know! And poor Dermot trying to ask some questions afterwards, felt soo awkward.
I think you should do a UK #2 of the 00s list as well
Aww, why did it make you anxious? P!nk knows what she's doing and there's no way she would go on live tv and attempt an incredible stunt and risk something tragic going wrong. P!nk is like the ultimate professional and she sure knows how to put on a show, or in this case performance. It's like when Try
was released and she performed the choreography from the music video live (maybe at the Grammie awards 2013
?) and the whole time she was being flung around the stage, you could clearly tell she was singing live. Such an inspirational artist in general. <3
LOL yes, i think semi naked male dancers and Kylie are synonymous with each other, and i ain't gonna complain about that. All the lovers
was a well deserved hit regardless of where it peaked in the charts.
Thinking about it, i'm actually convinced going spanish hindered her success globally. Perhaps she thought it'd perform similarly to Jennifer Lopez's 2007 album Como ama una mujer
but even that album was pretty much ignored in the UK. The timing was also an issue. With J Lo, she returned hard in 2011 with On the floor
and got the whole entire world bopping to her global smash. Whereas Nelly came back with the not very radio friendly Big Hoops (bigger the better)
which i suspect left a lot of her UK fans a bit puzzled as to what she was trying to achieve. I mean, i liked it because it was quirky but even then it was no Maneater
or Say it right
Madonna knew what she doing by wearing that pink leotard. She just knows how to get people talking, and she achieved the feat all over again with the Hung up
music video. There is always going to be somebody who isn't happy when Madonna dares to do something radical.
The one artist who could blow everyone else out of the water in 2018 is Ariana Grande. It's just a gut feeling but after what she went through after that dreadful bomb attack at her Manchester concert, and how she handled that situation afterwards flying back to the UK to visit those injured fans, and then putting together the One love Manchester
concert, she raised her public profile significantly and i predict her lead single off the new album will be an instant #1 on both sides of the atlantic.
To be fair Dermot had a multitude of awkward moments on The x factor
interviewing several acts. For e.g. the late Whitney Houston after her dress became undone midway through her performance of Million dollar bill
and she spent the remainder of her performance trying to sort her dress out whilst the backing track kept on playing.
Or when Robbie Williams performed Bodies
and the big doors didn't open on cue leaving Robbie to prise them open. Both of them looked quite pissed off afterwards. Poor Dermot was like a lamb in the lions den.
It might well happen at some point later in 2018 as the idea started circulating after i started this. I never had that intention but i was pleasantly surprised at how responsive people became to this thread, and i loved that. I love the idea of bringing people together in a really cool way, and celebrating my favourite #1s of the 00s was one of those occasions. <3
