  • Yeyyy!!! My first ever first comment!

    He`s not actually been on yet but having seen the rest of the show my God what awful company he's in. I don`t actually mind Frank...occasionally....sometimes.... but Jodie, Davina and Avid..... I`m just glad he wasn`t interviewed as well....

  • I've never really liked the song but it was well performed; Moz in great voice and looking pretty good. The boys in matching tops. Well done all!

  • white shirt with the frilliest of frills on the front.

    Great rather fruity performance of IHFJ.

    No talking except a couple of thank yous at the end.

    The boys were all wearing grey t-shirts with a picture of a group in black shadow on the front. (possibly the New York Dolls?)

    Performance ended with a delightful little roll on the gong.

    In summary: Short but sweet.

  • Amazing (Score:1, Insightful)

    Morrissey and the band were awesome tonight. Never have I heard anything like this before on TV. The sound was alright (not quite to the standard of jools holland - even in NICAM) but the band and the keyboard player were just amazing. At the end, Morrissey was smiling to the studio crowd - thank you, thank you he said as the credits rolled out. What a year we have in store in 2005, and what a year it has been in 2004 for all the regulars.

  • Absolutely decent version of "Jesus", not particularly over-the-top gestures, great voice as usual, the band were neat if a bit bored (is Gaz ever not bored?) and we even got a thankful and sincere smile at the end..

    The unusual thing I noticed though - maybe it's happened before - was a kind of Doctor Who outfit going on, circa Jon Pertwee, eg: frilly shirt and dark velvety jacket..very dashing. He looked very tall tonight, actually.

    Perhaps he'll come back as the new Doctor once Christopher Eccleston has snuffed it, I might even apply to be his assistant..imagine the job!

  • was appalling wasn't it? All over the shop.

    He sang it brilliantly. I love the song but I don't think it's going to be a big hit because I think it's too unconventional for the mainstream pop chart. But like Shakespeare's Sister. Most single buyers can only deal with verse chorus verse chorus etc.

    Didn't like his outfit though. It made him look fat.

  • Tony Bennet is a gent but that interview was shit too.

    Pretty good performance I suppose. I really don`t think "Jesus" is single material though, "I Like You" or "Crashing Bores" would`ve been much better. Although four singles off an album is too much anyway, I know everyone else does it but the point still remains. I do like the whole Jesus/Christmas cheekiness but I don`t think this is gonna trouble the charts very much.

    I`m looking forward far more to the Janice Long session but I`m recording that and off to bed now. Some of us work for a living you know!!...Julia....

  • I thought the performance was really good! I was hoping for an Interview but Frank Skinner would have somehow turned the convosation around and made it about himself...What a week it has been Live concert on VH2, Morrissey vs The Smiths, Frank Skinner and theres still CD:UK and T4, I checked the TOTP tv listing and It doesn't look like he's performing...But anyway great performance and I will be buying this on Monday!

    The show's in 2 parts.
    Was Moz at the end of the 1st Half hour or the 2nd Half hour ?

  • This is one of the best Morrissey performances I've seen- either solo or with the Smiths. He sang it as if he meant it and there was real pathos in his voice and manner. FIRSTODIE

  • I can't believe Frank talked to Jodie Marsh but not Moz, maybe Moz refused to sit in the seat after she'd been in it, he might have caught something.

    The performance was great except for my boyfriend saying it was overdubbed which annoyed me quite a lot.

    A missed opportunity for Skinner.

  • That show was soooo lame. The Tony Bennett interview made my skin crawl! And with typical predicitability they left us waiting for the ENTIRE show to see Moz. The reward for this though was that the song was played in it's entirerty and it was a great performance from Moz (even if I worried his voice was gonna pack up at one stage!).

    His hair looked terrible in that stoopid light though and he looked at little plump round the waist too :-(

  • I couldn't think of anything more attractive than Morrissey doing a moon. Who was the lucky recipient in the song ?

    Another dazzlng performance by Moz and the band, he oozed with confidence, appearing happy and at ease with himself on stage. His singing was as beautiful as ever, bringing the song to life. Thank you.

    Can't wait till Earl's court (Mary & George)!!

  • I watched most of the show and was amused by the earthy often witty chat. A short interview with Moz would have probably been lively. While on interviews, I don’t know why people are slating the one with Jonathon Ross; they were surely perfect verbal sparring partners, and there was a lovely intimate playful quality about it. I cherish my copy of that. On Skinners’s show I thought Morrissey looked fresher than at any time on the tour, and more relaxed. It was just no bother to him, except for the slightest dither on the first bar. And what a lovely warm smile at the end to an exceptionally enthusiastic (live?) round of applause! That’s entertainment, all right!

    But seriously...yeah, it was fine.

  • thank god that frank skinner didnt attempt to interview mozza - after the ross interview that would have been a cringe fest too far.
    i dont hate skinner, and he is twice the interviewer that ross is,but the tony bennet interview was painful ! if you dont want to talk about wanking, bowel movements and football then stay away from frank skinner - thank god mozza did !
