Hit Me Baby One More Time...

Played softball last night and got my first ever complete game win. Had to ice the arm down this morning, pitching 7 innings of slow-pitch takes a lot outta you ;-)

When I got home Jillian was all excited because she found this show on TV called "Hit Me Baby One More Time". It is a show that has, shall we say, "Washed Up" artists performing. The jist is they get five artists to each perform their biggest hit, then cover a recent song. The audience votes at the end for who they think did the best and the charity of the artists' choice gets $20,000. A pretty good idea when you think about it.

Last nights acts were:
  1. Loverboy - Working For the Weekend
  2. CeCe Peniston - Finally
  3. Flock of Seagulls - I Ran
  4. Arrested Development - Tennessee
  5. Tiffany - I Think We're Alone Now
These performances were just fair, really, Loverboy and Flock of Seagulls looked pretty old, but they all really performed like they were enjoying themselves. Then came the cover songs:
  1. Loverboy: Hero by Enrique Iglesias
  2. CeCe Peniston: There You’ll Be by Faith Hill
  3. Flock of Seagulls: On the Way Down by Ryan Cabrera
  4. Arrested Development: Heaven by Los Lonely Boys
  5. Tiffany: Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson
Now I really have to give credit to all of them on the covers. The choices for some of these may have seemed a little strange, but they all performed them very well. They all put their own spin on the songs and did not try to sing them as a carbon-copy, American Idol, wannabe version.

In the end Arrested Development won and their charity got the $20,000...

Some acts coming soon are:
  • Wang Chung
  • The Knack
  • Irene Cara
  • Sophie B. Hawkins
  • Cameo
  • Tommy Tutone
  • Vanilla Ice
  • The Motels
Could be fun...

It originated over here with the same host - Vernon Kay. Tiffany was on it here too but the winner won a recording contract!

Funny, Jillian said that she figured you would like that show, and that it was likely on in the UK...

For some reason I could only laugh throughout the show.

I was secretly rooting for A Flock Of Seagulls.
