Park Jo Min is South Korea’s Adele

ADELE can’t sing. Adle is sick of throat. But  15-year-old Park Ji Mon can sing. Park Jo Min’s accent is spot on. It’s incredible. Can BT hire Park Jo Mon for their Indian call centres, or just move their call centres to South Korean. She’s no Adele but  Park Jo Mon  can make beautiful musak while you repeatedly smash your face into a desk.

BBC news anchor David Robertson does close-up magic

BBC news anchor David Robertson showcases his close-up magic as he reads the news in Scotland.

The Mirror’s Live TV tried a similar stun to enliven news with its News Bunny and the Weather in Norwegian, the latter a forerunner to the Tony Blair Government’s championing of lifelong education.

The BBC has been merging news and entertainment for a decade by cha-cha-cha-ing news readers on to pro-celeb dance show Strictly Come Dancing, inviting Will Young to be pundit on Question Time and presenting the to-deadline mutterings of BBC presenter Jeremy Clarkson on a BBC news magazine show as a lead news item on the BBC news.

David Robertson’s magic pen is just another step in that direction.

America hates Steve Jones on X Factor

AMERICA is a notoriously difficult nut to crack and, if Robbie Williams couldn’t do it, then Steve Jones certainly can’t in his tenure as The X Factor USA role.

When the show returns for a second season, it seems the former T4 presenter will have to watch it on ITV2, nursing his P45 from Simon Cowell. Unsurprising really, given that he’s roughly as charming as a machine that makes cardboard boxes.

USA Today referred to him “as charmless as a Ken doll and even less animated.”

Harry Judd wins Strictly Come Dancing as McFly make it a pro-celebrity two-step

HARRY Judd has won televised pro-celebrity dance show Strictly Come Dancing. Harry Judd now makes it two in a row for his band McFly, following in the steps of Dougie Poynter, King of the I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here jungle.

For a long time all eyes were on Ola Jordan’s midriff. Indeed, if McFly are to tour again we invite them to include Ola as kind of Bez at the front of stage. It could only go well.

Congratulations, then, to Harry Judd. Before the baffled eyes of Bruce Forsyth, Judd accepted his massive Glitterball trophy, and blessedly did not use the word “journey” in his valedictory speech, thus breaking from his Strictly contract and revealing the revellious streak we look for in our musical stars.

Said Harry Judd:

“All I can say is, from the bottom of heart thank you to everyone for voting for Aliona and me. I’ve been on the best show on TV and I’m just honoured.”

Tallafornia Is Eugenics Telly Hitler Could Only Have Dreamt Of

TALLAFORNIA is a vison on hell in Dublin. The Irish Herald gives it a cracking review:

Tallafornia is cheap, tacky, shoddy and extraordinarily badly-produced. It’s so grotty it makes the Living channel look like PBS.

Can it be so bad, it’s good? Or will it just be humanity debased, the kind of TV Hitler and his Nazi eugenic machine would have dreamt up and broadcast to debase a the untermensch?
