Can't Sing Singers
Lorraine Kelly (narrator, live final host)
Live final: Andy Goldstein
BBC One, 20 November to 18 December 2004 (5 episodes in 1 series)
Bunches of virtually tone deaf 'artistes' from the general public at large (well, London, Liverpool, Birmingham and Cardiff anyhow) are subjected to weeks of singing lessons to bring them to a stage where they can sing and dance in front of a live studio audience at the Concrete Donut, aka BBC TV Centre.
Kind of a docusoap mixed with a musical makeover show, it works as a BBC 'feelgood' vehicle although some of the activites they get to do are clearly for mugging up to the camera only - since when did Lesley Garrett do thinks like abseiling and hatha yoga?
