So what are your thoughts on this (apart from the bad music)? Is it condescending? Does it trivialise the work the armed forces do?

Getting bored of Help for Heroes, especially as it only covers Iraq/Afghan wounded and not the thousands from other conflicts, so i give my money to the RBL instead.

It was just missing the male vocal which really was a let down for me. Jenkins has a spectacular voice though.

Would also like to add, Twickenham is a pretty fantastic stadium for gigs. The atmosphere sounds so much better than televised gigs from Wembley.

Just had to laugh.
yesterday on X-Factor Simon Cowell told a lad off for stupid walking/dancing/actions on the stage - I wonder if he'd say the same thing to Robbie?

It was gash, although I too am bored of the substitution of the word "soldier" for "Hero" in its place.

It was ok but I turned it over as soon as Robbie Burger King Williams thought he was Freddie Mercury and started strutting with the microphone stand and plagiarising Freddie's impromptu crowd sing along (‘Daa Yoo’ etc). Honest to god that really pee’d me off and I just couldn’t watch any longer.

Jenkins was pretty much the only singing act that was half decent.

Robbie was terrible as usual, I just don't get him at all.

He wants to be Freddy Mercury, and doesn't have the voice, presence or charisma. Or denim hotpants.

Overall, concernt was actually embarassing - Michael McIntyre and Rod (?) Gilbert were the only entertaining comedians (IMHO).

Music was shocking as all the stuff either had a backing track or was so badly levelled that it had no energy whatsoever.

Yawn-tacular.
