It was a super high pressure live event, so many things were always going to go wrong.
The Queen did not care, she was more worried about her husband on the night. Fancy arranging for him to be on a boat all day, come on... tit.
What did strike me, and I am putting on my professional head here, is the distinct lake of 'entertainment' from the modern acts that lined up. They just failed to engage the audience on any level. They did there thing, but it was unique (well at least to me) to see them one after the other, and it really showed them up.
The tools we use, talk and fight about every day in the studio are distancing the artist from the audience, live the music sounds different, it alienates them, confuses them which means to look and sound good they should stick to miming.
What does anyone else think?
