The fact that this kid sang more in the band than Hannah!
How cool though that he got to that and he did an amazing job
Sorry to be a party pooper, but the problem I had with this at the time and now, is several. NB. I am a huge fan of S Club 8 and my criticisms come from a place of love and frustration, as I promise I’m not being negative for the sake of it
Firstly, the competition winner was so well deserved but it only highlighted the lack of singing the rest of the group did. The fact a winner could easily slot in and replace 80% of the group in one fell swoop made the premise of ‘8’ apparent singers seem a little of a joke
Secondly, this boy could actually sing and could do so live. Unfortunately, the rest of the group resorted to mining making it even more of a mockery. Both Stacey and Frankie should have taken the step to sing live with him or at least be backed up by the band is not feeling confident.
Finally, the notion that a competition winner could perform with a band that had already been brought together through a talent contest, gave that impression of how replaceable they all were at any one moment. It just felt a little ‘icky’ which was a shame as the winner was decent and if that good, should have had a place in the band from the get go.
There I said it. I’m going back to listening to Sundown now.
