Just a quick blog today, my thoughts are being a bit quiet so not much actual thinking going on at present! They will pick up again soon, though! Some days my mind just opens up and the thoughts come flooding in – other days, like today, they are a little more subdued. I suppose, like the rest of me, my mind has to take a little rest every now and then! And it is the first of the month, in case that has any bearing on things!
We’ve just had Eurovision, and now we have Britain’s Got Talent! I thought yesterday’s show – the first semi final – was better than today’s show, but I mean no disrespect to any of the acts that have got through to tonight’s show. I loved Chandi, the dancing dog. She was amazing! And Connected sung really well, although I didn’t know the song they were singing (but there’s no surprise there, as sometimes I think I don’t know a song only to realise I actually do know it and was singing it earlier in the week – I confuse myself quite easily!) Last night’s contestants to get through to the final were really good, Spelbound and Tobias Mead. Two completely different dance acts, although I have to think can another dance act win Britain’s Got Talent? I can’t see why not, as there seems to be a big push towards dancing at present – Arlene Philips was talking about a project she is involved in to get more people into dance by 2012 (I think she said 2012 – I’ll need to look further in to this to be sure), and the interval act in Eurovision featured thousands of people dancing all over Europe. Chandi is a dance act with a difference, should she get through I think she will do well. Tobias is a dancer with a difference. Spelbound and their acrobatics are breath-taking. And we still have three more semi-finals to go and the results are due about now for today’s show.
Somebody’s dream will come true on Saturday – so good luck to all contestants who get through. Commiserations for the acts who don’t get that far, but they have done really well getting to the semi-final stage and should be proud of that.
