    It's a contrived I Will Survive re-write and nothing more, although I do like two lines in particular.

    It always surprises me how divisive Strong Enough is with fans. For me it's absolute classic Cher and only a small step down from the power and the glory of Believe.

    I've been LOSING SLEEP
    and you've been GOING CHEAP

    She ain't worth HALF OF ME. IT'S TRUE.

    No kidding, Cher.

    I do want a nice surprise along the lines of the Love Medley (One by One, Taxi Taxi and Love Is The Groove).

    Of all my CTTT uploads on youtube, the most popular by a mile is Pride. I would love that one so much, but it's only a bonus track.

    "Strong Enough" is TREMENDOUS. It's an "I Will Survive" pastiche, ABSOFUCKINGLUTELY, but it doesn't try and claim to be anything else- that's the whole fucking POINT OF IT! And it was a big hit- and certainly one of her most memorable tunes- over here.

    So you FEEL misunderstood
    BABY HAVE I GOT NEWS FOR YOU
    On being USED I could WRITE THE BOOK


    She'll probably still open with "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", given the amount of times it's served that purpose, but yes, I could live without that.

    I read a TV listing for Graham Norton this evening and no Cher or MISH in sight?

    Yeah I read that Paul McCartney is this week now? :confused:

    Maybe Cher is next week. ANNOYING if so as the single would get a better push now.

    Very annoying!

    I'd planned a gay evening with Cher, MISH, and Britney!

    The middle-8 is the very definition of the word deluxe. To me, it's the obvious dance-Cher single.

    You Haven't Seen The Last of Me is very useful for those prone to deflated interludes.

    You don't know me, you don't know who I am, don't count me out just yet :(

    The fact that CHAIR actually was on a chair when she sung the number brings it back to :disco: though.

    I'm sure she sang with all her might as per. Maybe she should drop by Later With Jools and do THREE little numbers to keep the gays happy in a real music setting: Find It, Like A Man for the LOLs and Sirens to shoosh them afterwards.

    Any youtube uploads of the X-Factor performance are not viewable in the UK. What a farce. That explains why it's not number 1 at least.

    i love the i hope you find it performance, though her outfit is a tad questionable she really comes through so wonderfully, graceful and utterly likeable
    it's such a nice classic ballad too and she gives it that extra something

    She's getting so much positive press at the moment, so much goodwill for her

    "I told both writers: 'There's no f**king way I'm gonna be heartbroken for two verses. After one verse, it's f**k you, I'm outta here."

    Fabulous.

    Even though I Hope You Find It is a MILEY cover? Did she record it first and just fart about for so long that Molly got it out before her?

    Or is she just lying...?

    It is not for us mere mortals to question the ways of Cher.

    Go CHER :disco:

    This is going a lot better than I thought. I'm guessing it's the ticket sales including the album that's giving it the boost, but there are others who would drain the BB chart rules for less no doubt.

    CHAIR was amazing on Graham Norton - I loved Mish, Bob and Jen too, but CHAIR should have gotten her own solo show.

    She could have spoken in-depth about her struggle as a woman who is amazing in every way and who couldn't give a shit about it.

    Too many A-listers on one couch - Graham looked really uncomfortable

    CHAIR saved the show when she came on, and another brilliant performance at the end
