No don't. Seriously.

British Saturday night family entertainment has now come down to nicking the title of a great song by our favourite band and using it as an excuse to put on some kind of battle of the tribute acts, which are billed as the best in the world, but they are more like the worst in Britain.  'Boy Georgeous' sounded like - well Boy George doing Cilla Black.  The room was full of tribute acts, and the audience looked like they'd been plied with Prosecco before recording started (the show wasn't live). 

I'd rather have an hour of BBC1 showing a blank screen than a programme taking the name of a U2 song in vain.

But a blank screen for an hour on BBC would only be a tribute to ENO.

It's only a title. Were you against One Tree Hill as well? I tend to avoid anything with this host and anything on TV on a Saturday evening but this show gave us a few laughs. And we thought George Michael was extremely good. Actually a better use of an hour than the usual dating / celeb / hyped talent show trying to be taken seriously nonsense Saturday has otherwise become. And if Twitter got involved with pi$$takes, even better.

Even Better Than the Real Thing?  They're both dead.

And I hope we are going to hear the Bowie tribute in the blue suit - yes the one that looks like a cross between Liberace and Ricky Gervais.

Haha I was sorry Bowie didn't see any action. I was intrigued and also hope to hear him next time.
