Celebrities who can’t sing
An article in The Sun reports that Sonia fled back to the UK after being voted one of the worst performers on Reborn in the USA (presented by the ever-present and hideously annoying Davina McCall). I watched the pitiful performance on Saturday night and winced with pain as the redhead crucified ‘The greatest love of all’ (already a particularly shite song). She simply cannot sing: she was totally out of tune, putting way too much emotion into the song and sounding like a bad karaoke singer. At least Jo Brand and Ruby Wax make no claims of being great singers. Both, along with Ulrika Johnson and a number of others are taking part in the Comic Relief special of Fame Academy. The black male paramedic out of Casualty is currently under some illusion that he’s a great soul singer. Along with Jambo from Hollyoaks, he prays nightly to God for help in winning the competition. Both seem to forget that it’s all for charity mate. Still, if there’s got to be a winner, I’ll plump for Cold Feet’s John Thompson who, whilst not being a great singer, doesn’t seem to be taking it too seriously. Now looking forward to David Brent getting involved with Comic Relief for real. I bet that’s another dream come true for Ricky Gervias.
