So I'm sitting here on my couch watching the Concert for Diana. So far I've seen Tom Jones, that girl that sings the song from "Laguna Beach," and Bryan Ferry. With the exception of Bryan Ferry, Duran Duran (!!!!!), and Joss Stone (although she's looking crazy these days), I've gotta say, the rest of the lineup is kind of ... meh.
Right now they're doing an Andrew Lloyd Weber segment, which I think is the most engaging set of performances so far. This woman's singing a song from "Jesus Christ Superstar," and she's totally rocking out. And it was announced that the original Christine from Phantom of the Opera was going to sing, at which the large crowd at Wembley ooohed and aahed. Impressive.
And now Donny Osmond is singing. What just happened here?
Oh. Donny Osmond was in "Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat"? Who knew?
Clips from the audience show that they're totally into it. I guess those Brits really love them some theatre!
I'll admit, I totally cried and was even sad for a few days after Diana got killed in that car accident. Don't even judge me. I can't believe it's been ten years now. If I had the means, I'd so create a concert of all of my mom's favorite singers, with all proceeds to benefit non-profit organizations my mom supported. Although my mom likes singers like Johnny Mathis and Andy Williams, so I don't even know if we'd even raise any money.
In case you were wondering, Andy Williams has a web site. Oh my god, so does Johnny Mathis!
In other news, I have two hours of flamenco coming up this afternoon. I bet you a carne asada burrito that I miss the Duran Duran performance. Ain't that a bitch.
