Yeah, all the drama around the show is so annoying these days. You just want to see some good acts who have the potential to become a successfull singer. I couldn't care less about anything else
Her singles did quite well, but I think everyone has forgotten about them already. I still would like to see a Misha B album though. Never was a fan of Amelia to be honest.
They did perform a few times here in The Netherlands though, and playing for around 5,000 people, without any hit whatsoever is could impressive!
Yeahh! You should. If you ever visit, let me know and I'll show you around
That is very strange indeed.. It did seem like the 80s were more tolerant in that sense. Because all the gay singers from the 90s (Ricky Martin, Darren Hayes, Stephan Gately spring to mind) all came out years later. I cannot stand Sam's music
But like you said, I appreciate the fact he is so successfull and so open at the same time. Hopefully we will get some new Years & Years music! Did you see the documentary Olly did for BBC 'Growing Up Gay'? Powerful stuff.
They have!! They are the best people in general, aren't they!?
I was as well. Would love her to have a hit again though. Room For Love should smash <3
Both Atomic Kitten and Sugababes were fairly successfull and had a few top 10 hits over here. Whole Again, especially was massive. But I wanted to be sure, so Wikipedia'd and Atomic Kitten had 9 top 40 hits over here and Sugababes 12. I do prefer Round Round now as well
That Kelly song is bloody brilliant, the chorus especially. Nothing better than to belt (or scream in my case) MY LIFEEEE WOULD SUCK WITHOUUUUT YOU.
Although I am surprised Since U Been Gone or Because Of You never topped the charts over there
I totally agree, all i care about is how amazing the contestants are and how consistent they are on the live shows. It also doesn't help when they end up singing the same songs every year when there are millions of songs to choose from. I doubt we're ever gonna get a Misha B album now, its been 5 years since she made the charts. I don't even know what Misha B is up to these days. Her public profile is pretty much non existent and i'm not really into social media either.
Aww, i thought Amelia had a tremendous voice but i think her styling didn't suit - unless i'm getting mixed up with somebody else.
Wow, i never realised that. Mind you i only really know about what Little Mix are doing in the UK, like tv appearances and performances, or any UK award shows and of course releasing new music.
Aww, that'd be amazing. My own personal tour guide.
What is the nightlife like where you live? Where abouts in the Netherlands do you live?
Yes, like you say the likes of Ricky Martin all came out as gay long after they had success as a popstar. LOL i like Sam Smith but in small doses, i couldn't listen to a whole album of his because his shrill falsetto would drive me insane. It's pleasant as a one off song amongst different singers.
OMG! Yes i did watch Growing up gay
and i felt dumbfounded by that documentary. I even found myself getting teary eyed, some of the most powerful programmes on tv can have that emotional impact on me. I usually joke that i'm a big softy but in all honesty some of these shows just sadden me immensely because i can relate to them. It's like the music video to 1-800-273-8255
, the first time i watched it i was awestruck and found myself welling up so badly.
Who else on UK Mix is a July baby?
I think this was discussed either in this thread or my other chart thread about how radio stations these days refuse to play music from artists over a certain age. Sadly Mel C is now in that category although we do have Radio 2 in the UK which is aimed at a more mature audience but it has very little influence on the charts. As long as Spotify determines the success of all future huts, the charts are gonna remain bleak. I would much rather see a song like Room for love
in the UK top 40 over some of the urban nonsense that America keeps churning out.
Oh wow, i never realised how successful Atomic Kitten and Sugababes were outside the UK. All i remember from over the years was this constant emphasis on british artists cracking America. So if they got to #20 in America it seemed a bigger deal than going to #1 across europe. I've never really understood why this is.
Maybe they just make more money in America?
Yay! More Kelly Clarkson love.
Quite surprisingly, the singles from Breakaway
weren't even close to topping the UK charts. Since u been gone
got to #5, Behind these hazel eyes
was #9 and Because of you
got to #7. I think its safe to say all three would've been #1 in my own chart back then as i was completely in love with Kelly during that era. I was never a big fan of My December
