Have been flicking on and off BBC1 to watch what I thought was going to be an entertaining evening. What I found was a complete void of atmosphere stadium that looked 3/4 empty. A BBC production that was flawed in every sense from editing to sound. 3 totally gormless presenters, Fern (I am thick as shite) cotton who was totally void of any interview techniques whatsoever. The 2 muppets in the studio who Fcuked up eveything they said and had no continuity during the show.

What do you think shite or good...me thinks a 100% bag of shite...

Must admit that Rome had my attention for the best part - what a terrible shame poisoning a slave girl with such fine norbeckers... that said they could of shown Rome in Latin and I would have understood more words than the shite sound production on BBC1

BBC covereage was a bag'o'shite. Fern Cotton should be gassed.

As for crowd reaction, you have to appreciate that there was a fair sized proportion of the audience who were, not to put too fine a point on it, a little bit over the hill. You're not going to get much of mosh pit going for people who have tipped up to watch Elton John and the bloke from Supertramp.

As for the line up. Although I will draw flack from my nation for what could be viewed as heresy, I have to say that Tom Jones trying to cover Arctic Monkeys was a fcuking disaster- although it was good to see the old bugger still has it going on. Watching him being interviewed on the sofa with Joss Stone sat next to him, obviously getting wetter than a Sheffield living-room carpet, was hysterical.

I have to go with the shite option, switched between this and Saving Private Ryan on Sky, I would have thought the 2 princes could at least have learned a short thank you speech without having to constantly refer to crib notes

I refuse to watch anything Fearne Cotton has a hand in! After trying to watch the red carpet for the Oscars and her asking every single actress she spoke to if they had their big "Briget jones" knickers on! FFS I would much rather hear them speak about their films than their underwear

She hasn't learn't anything then as she asked everyone she interviewed tonight what was their lasting memory of diana. Also started each int with "what an awsome electric atmosphere we have here tonight" she must of been on the old wacky backy - stupid bitch only good for one thing her and thats a being a bucket for the old man fat

That didn't go unnoticed. One dreads to think what it must be like receiving orders from a Troopy who's constantly referring to TAMS, umming, ahhing and littering his speech with "like, y' know". As for content- the phrase "most perfect" must have put speechwriters teeth on edge straight away.

They are the products of Eton and RMAS. At the very least one would have thought that they'd have the initiative to use the teleprompter like everyone else.

Totally, like, whatever

In case you hadn't noticed,
it has somehow become uncool
to sound like you know what you're talking about?
Or believe strongly in what you're saying?
Invisible question marks and parenthetical (you know?)'s
have been attaching themselves to the ends of our sentences?
Even when those sentences aren't, like, questions? You know?

Declarative sentences - so-called
because they used to, like, DECLARE things to be true
as opposed to other things which were, like, not -
have been infected by a totally hip
and tragically cool interrogative tone? You know?
Like, don't think I'm uncool just because I've noticed this;
this is just like the word on the street, you know?
It's like what I've heard?
I have nothing personally invested in my own opinions, okay?
I'm just inviting you to join me in my uncertainty?

What has happened to our conviction?
Where are the limbs out on which we once walked?
Have they been, like, chopped down
with the rest of the rain forest?
Or do we have, like, nothing to say?
Has society become so, like, totally . . .
I mean absolutely . . . You know?
That we've just gotten to the point where it's just, like . . .
whatever!

And so actually our disarticulation . . . ness
is just a clever sort of . . . thing
to disguise the fact that we've become
the most aggressively inarticulate generation
to come along since . . .
you know, a long, long time ago!

I entreat you, I implore you, I exhort you,
I challenge you: To speak with conviction.
To say what you believe in a manner that bespeaks
the determination with which you believe it.
Because contrary to the wisdom of the bumper sticker,
it is not enough these days to simply QUESTION AUTHORITY.
You have to speak with it, too.

I thought the 2 best acts were Rod and Elton. My heroes in the days of Motorman.

O - and Tom Jones: who wasn't, then.

I'm 52.

About the same age as one half of the audience, and 40 yrs older than the other half.

I'm not sure which half of the audience Wills and Harry were in.

I think Wills is prob'ly as old as me. His kid bro' is just a GWAR (like his dad). 8)

Would have been more entertaining if Val Doonican was the only singer and he's probably dead.
I even found Ricky Chevais boring - think he knew he was on a loser as soon as he walked out
 
#13
I like Ricky Gervais and liked 'the office' and 'Extras.'.but somehow I dont think he did himself much justice on there tonight. He seemed more like a David Brent on stage.
 
#14
Personally i thought it was all a bit stiff, however i was very surprised living down here in the Southern Hemisphere, to listen and see so many people impressed with the 2 Princes etc. I think this can only be good.
 
#15
What I found really gaulling was that P Diddy fella - please tell me he wasn't there ONLY to revive a very pathetic career? His thoughts on Diana were sooooooooooooo false
 
#16
I did watch the concert for most parts, especially Joss Stone, the Ballet is a nice touch, I think overall it was a reasonably good concert, good effort by the Princes and certainly did them a lot of good.

but that kn0b Pharrel (sp) wanted everybody to stand up for Peace, "yo Stand up fo Peace y'all" feck off mawkish w@nker

Agreed, he was vomit inducingly bad. I don't think his career could be classed as flagging though!

Given that half the feckers on stage were still in pamapers when she was a live - felt some of their comments just a tad krass (each one with an eye on a birthday honour or two). And the other half were sh*gging for England during the same period (Stewart, Jones et al) they had little to comment either. Everyone over 30 seemed to have the words of their own songs in front of them (Ferry and Sir Elton) so they really must be getting old!

The BBC sound chap and producer needs to be shot, the time keeper have his watch stuffed up his Arrse for all the problems at the end - fancy making Ricky suffer in public for so long!

And I must admit the ending was a tad understated - if you celebrating a birthday you end on a high do you not? Should have put webbers piece at the end!

Anyway well done to the lads for having the balls to arrange it - no mean feat. However they could have been better supported on the technical front.

And it did raise awareness of all her charities

Cheers

I had intended to leave the country for the weekend, but it fell through. Instead I tokk up an invite to play ina concert, and exepcted this to keep me away from Diana people.

Not so - I had to give them a serious rant and a soup├žon of Diana jokes during the interval. Back to one of the lasses' pads afterwards but about 21:45 the TV was put on .... some talentless caterwauling followed, and a review of the cast?.

I was trying not to pay any attention but then there was lots of bleeping, my companions were appalled, turned the sound down, then turned it off.

Whoever he was should have been on at the start. Who or what was he, and did he have a valid point ?.

Sad to see so many sad, sad peopel on the tubes and trains afterwards clutching Diana ephemera - no smiles, no excited chatter about what they'd seen.

Ha fcuking ha !.



PS - Any chance of an OBE for Henri Paul ?.

... what beats me is how and why the bbc employ such appalling people like her ... it makes you wonder what she did to get in that position (nudge nudge, wink wink, know what i mean sir ) ... surely there must be presenters out there who are able to think before opening their gormless mouth and spewing out such rubbish like her ... to a lesser extent jo wiley is similar with that scatterbrain mentality ... an embarrassment to anyone with any decent standards :(
