Good question. Maybe they couldn't afford all those musicians on an album.....you know what the unions are like!

The more I think about Robbie and what he did, the more I think what a tw*t! He didn't learn the words....almost cocked up, and halfway through the penny dropped when he realised the magnitude of the event and the quality of the orchestra and he finally got on with it....
I think that's a bit unfair on Robbie. He did ok. PSB songs are usually suited to an understated vocal, and Robbie is the master of an OTT vocal. The highlight of Jealousy is the orchestral climax, and you simply build up to that with the vocal. Admittedly, during the instrumental passages it's hard for Robbie to stand still and let the music talk.

And about the words, I'm sure Robbie knows them when he's singing along, it's a different matter when you've got 500 people 3 metres in front of you, and a 50-piece band behind you, singing someone else's words.

And remember, Neil almost came in 8 bars too early on Left to my own devices!

Goodness - I'd quite forgottem about Neil's almost-blip at the beginning. I have to say he looked absolutely terrified in the lead up to the vocal starting!

Bollocks,Stussyboy. No offence mate, but you're practically saying he isn't an artiste. And he isn't. He's just a jumped up beaut who sings kareoke. What on earth anyone see's in this bloke is beyond me. Born from the media, lives for the media. And he cannot sing. Just take one listen to his rendition of 'We Are The Champions'. He massacred the song. He massacred 'Freedom 90' and you can hear the strain in his voice when he tries falsetto. Stop reading the tabloids and open your eyes to what a gimp he really is, Stussy.

This is a post that is in NO WAY having a go at you Stussy. I just think he cannot sing, he cannot write music and he cannot dance. He's actually very good at being a gimp.

I kill for a HIFI video copy of this show.
Neil Tennant has a great voice, Chris Lowe has great silence.

The show will be 60 mins of music and 30 mins of interviews. The word is they are only going to have to cut one number to fit it all in.


As for Robbie - no excuses for that performance Im afraid - Im sure it will sound great on the radio and you won't have to watch that pathetic mugging around! :twisted:
