    I saw parts of it. He's quite up for WHATEVER. Watching bits of Diana's funeral, is something I never expected to see...

    He's not beloved.

    Not disliked. But I think he's nearly always been regarded as a bit of a JOKE. I think there's a bit of a warm fondness for him now though.

    I think people thought he was a bit GIT, whereas now people seem to genuinely LIKE him.

    As Dr. Lecter said that programme the other day was lovely, he genuinely seemed to be having a great time watching all the old home movies.

    They've only just started using him to the best of his abilities. He's KIND OF FUNNY, or at least thinks he is. With some good writers he'll be FINE.

    But yes the whole thing was really rather good, despite the odd BLIP. The finale was brilliant.

    Yeah - certainly after that horrible woman did the interview with Martin Bashir.

    Kylie got to walk on with Camilla though - only her and Gary walked on with the royals.

    Kylie was actually appointed to introduce HER MAJ to all the performers backstage:

    Ha! Take that Cherly!

    I was lucky enough to be there and I thought it was a really special night. Loved it generally and really enjoyed some of the artists that I would never want to see a whole concert of. It is kinda cool to say I've seen Stevie Wonder, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Shirley Bassey, Tom Jones, Cliff Richard and Grace Jones before they all pop their clogs.

    Awww, I love that Kylie is favoured by the royals. She really is such an INSTITUTION these days.

    I love that she noticed Grace Jones' change of outfit!

    I'm AGOG that ANYONE sat through this end to end.

    I happened to tune in for GRACE but SHEER CHANCE, saw a bit of Tom Jones and frankly thought WHY BOTHER.

    I'm entirely doubtful that being there would have been any improvement. In fact, I think it would have made the entire affair volumetrically MORE HIDEOUS.

    A few iTunes updates from the concert

    #1 & #6 Gary Barlow
    #20 Lady Antebellum
    #35 & #64 Stevie Wonder
    #44 & #62 Madness
    #82 The Beatles
    #87 Grace Jones

    There may be others, but that's what I can see... the chart is littered with Ed Sheeran, but isn't it ALWAYS?

    Lady Antebellum interesting. Yay for Grace! :D And Stevie. I can't believe I heard people saying that knackered old voiceless cunt Elton was good - Crocodile Rock, fuck off!

    Ed Sheeran, god.. biggest mystery of the year. It's like a solo Nitzlopi - and I wasn't surprised to find he was in fact involved with them. Just the absolute worst.
