Can't Sing Singers
Lorraine Kelly (narrator, live final host)
Live final: Andy Goldstein
Tutors: To be completed
BBC1, 20 November to 18 December 2004 (5 episodes)
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?
