Over the Rainbow

Every Saturday and Sunday night I find myself glued to my TV screen watching Andrew Lloyd Webber search for a new Dorothy for a new West End production of "The Wizard of Oz".

On the Sunday night show, the potential Dorothy's perform a "mash up"... I use the term lightly as from what I've always understood a mash up is not singing one song after the other, that's called a medley.

Come on BBC, sort it out! Either call it a medley or get a new musical director to actually arrange a mash up!

Ranting aside, I love the programme and am backing Lauren or Danielle.

Time for more ranting... What is the British public playing at? The past two weeks have ended up with the completely wrong girls in the "dreaded sing off". I'm worried that we're gonna end up with tuneless Emilie treading the boards in those Ruby Slippers!

One of my favourite parts of the show is the "Dorothy farewell" when the booted Dorothy is perched on a flying moon singing "Over the Rainbow"... Let's hope we see Emilie or the super tall one sitting on it next week.

Although, they better be careful on that flying moon with that ash cloud and all that...


  1. this blog actually made me LOL about the 'mash up' good work marcus :)

  2. It's so true!
