While BBC1 offered the Last Night of the Proms, ITV dredged up another tacky light entertainment show which, err, we actually quite enjoyed.
What was good about it?
• Apart from her “give it up for” affliction, the pretty-in-pink Fearne Cotton was a good host, entering into the spirit of the dance craze celebration without ever being too cheesy. Even the obviously pre-rehearsed interviews weren’t too hideous.
• Jimmy Osmond’s powerful rock voice on Let’s Do The Timewarp.
• Whigfield (not looking a day older) reviving that fun sensation that was Saturday Night.
• Claire Richards (looking several years older) performing Tragedy.
• Jocelyn Brown (looking morbidly obese) performing The Twist.
• Greased Lightning featuring cheeky Ray Quinn.
• The Cheeky Girls were reduced to appearing in a montage of ordinary people dancing the Locomotion.
What was bad about it?
• We were not fans of Signature on Britain’s Got Talent doing a bhangra version of Thriller, but lots of people seem to like it and it is harmless fun.
• The excited cheering from the audience at the sight of fireworks during Tragedy.
• We don’t like Mica Paris’s foghorn voice and therefore found Night Fever tepid.
• The usual disastrous talking heads selection by ITV: Chico, Dr Fox, Reggie Yates and Pete Waterman.
• The fuss over the audience poll to pick their favourite dance craze – YMCA came out on top.
