The end

On Friday, I found out that I would no longer be a member of the choir. Got a phone call which basically said that my services were surplus to requirements. I'm not happy about the protracted method which this entire thing was done, but I guess it's for the best, with all the stuff I've got going on at the moment.

Also, today we say goodbye to an iconic TV show, Top of the Pops. BBC has decided to pull the plug on the show after 42 years, due to competition from 24 hour music channels. Coincidentally, I appeared on Top of the Pops with the choir for the 2004 Christmas party, with Steve Brookstein, the day after his Xfactor win. Here's a pic from the BBC website.

Can you see me? Lol. I'm in the back row, 3rd from the right. Check out other pics here. I blogged about the Top of the Pops show here. We shared a dressing room with McFly, Lemar, Razor light, Girls Aloud (I actually chatted with them yay!), Lemar and Natasha Bedingfield. Kylie Minogue was also on that night, but being the superstar that she was, she had her own dressing room. Her dancers were with us though.
So goodbye Choir, goodbye Top of the Pops !!!

Hope everyone is having great weekend !!
