Children in Need Rocks the 80s

Postby Butterfield on Mon Nov 13, 2017 8:53 pm

...is on BBC One tonight at 8:30. :bananabones:


For one night only, Bananarama, Boy George, Erasure, Europe, Imagination, Jason Donovan, Katrina from Katrina & The Waves, Louisa Johnson, Nick Heyward, OMD, UB40 featuring Ali, Astro and Mickey and more celebrate an iconic decade of music, fashion and of course, the first major BBC Children in Need appeal. In between iconic hits, hosts Fearne Cotton and Sara Cox will keep things in check, with Roman Kemp capturing all the action backstage with the star-studded line up.

That’s where you come in. Embrace the definitive decade: don your neon legwarmers, scrunchies and shoulder pads and join us for an 80s party you will never forget.

I thought I recognised the name. But what's she got to do with the 80s?! :rollingpin:

Jason Donovan singing Too Many Broken Hearts live to a sort of re-recorded backing track. The sound is so poor.

Oh, it seems it's part backing track and part on-stage live orchestra. :sly:
