    BBC News said their performance was pre-taped


  2. This 4-way queen drama though. I wonder what went down.

  3. This post called me a fag and threw me in the dumpster.

  4. Olly about Chris Lowe

  5. That performance just reignited my love and thirst for Olly!

  6. Me too, after Starstruck had snuffed it out! Just goes to show the importance of a good song.

  7. Talk about beating around the bush. I wonder what the contractual issue was? This had obviously been planned for a while and Olly had teased Elton a week or two ago so it wasn't like a last minute drop out by PSB. Seems weird.

    Would've been great to see them on stage instead of Aunt Elton who gets wheeled out at all these events. It would be 12 (!!!) years since they appeared with Brandon Flowers and Gaga.

    Maybe contractual issues just means Pet Shop Boys were busy? I don’t think it’s so deep.

  9. Both Olly and Elton mimed, didn’t they? I could see Neil or Chris kicking up a fuss about that.
  10. I joke but I can see PSB going “let’s tone it down, we have straight fans in Poland” ddd

    Maybe they dropped out when Elton was added?
  11. Busy rescheduling their tour for a fourth time?

  12. I’d pop off elsewhere if Elton was involved as well...also Starstruck reminds me of a Christophe Willem track.
  13. Why though? Neil has been singing to a backing track for ages, and while that might not be straight up miming, they never were the "we are real musicians" kind?

    Considering they worked and recorded with Elton before, that's unlikely? Never heard of bad blood between them.
  14. PSB and Elton are friends so I doubt there's any beef there.
  15. Popbitch are claiming it’s because Elton and Pet Shop Boys couldn’t come to an agreement on who would take top billing.
  16. So what you're saying is these four queens couldn't decide on a top?

    What would the Pet Shop Boys have done anyway? It's not like the performance was lacking them in a major way.
  18. It is their song. Elton shoulda stayed home.

  19. That's a weird take. It's their song that they wrote and produced (including giving their blessing and producing this new version) and after the success of the TV show it would've felt like a cute full circle moment to perform with Olly. But no you're right gays in music over 60 are interchangeable I guess and it would've just been the same performance (??)
