I am going to see Les Miserables for the second time at the Theatre tonight having seen it in the West End a few years back. I am really looking forward to it as the UK Tour is the new production and will be starting in the West End later this year after the theatre has been refurbished.
One Day More is one of the most incredible songs so I thought for todays musical moment it would be the version from the 10th anniversary concert show!
Last night I found myself watching the 1994 version of The Lion King so decided todays musical moment would be Hakuna Matata . . . Mainly because on a Monday everyone needs cheering up right?
After seeing the Fabulous John Barrowman show on Thursday evening I just had to have today’s musical moment with John in it. Was a very tough choice to pick from so many amazing songs and the work he has done over the years. I have decided on I Am What I Am from his time in La Cage Aux Folles in the West End (I saw it before he took over from Graham Norton). This is clip is from the Paul O’Grady Show which used to air every night at 5pm, that was a good show! Plus the added fact that it is Pride Month! 🏳️🌈
Bon Jovi are my all time favourite band (EVER) and I am lucky enough to be going to see them for the third time on Wednesday in Liverpool at Anfield Stadium. Obviously I am super excited so thought it was perfect to then have It’s My Life as today’s musical moment! This is from the Crush album from 2000 and that is what really got me into the band, which were celebrating a huge comeback so I have always loved this song.
Especially years later for the music video when I realised that Blue Bloods Jamie Reagan (actor Will Estes) as that just happens to be one of my favourite tv shows!
Still totally loving the memories of seeing Hugh Jackman in Manchester the other week I thought today’s musical moment should come from The Greatest Showman and be The Greatest Show!
I eventually watched Wayne’s World for the first time over the weekend and therefore felt only one musical moment could be used for this Monday! Certainly a good way to cheer up on everyone’s least favourite day . . .
Ok, so I kinda wanted to let everything settle with this as people were going crazy saying Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper were having an affair. So I would like to claim that it is just a truly outstanding performance, although I don’t imagine I would be too happy with it if I was Bradley Cooper’s girlfriend!
Highly tense and a truly outstanding version of the song. Quite possibly the best moment at the Oscars! It is so very hot . . .
