Jake, Boy, you sure know how to insult a whole country. Do you think before you hit the keyboard, boy.

What you are implying with the "Cream of the UK Artists" is that those that performed at the Windsor Castle concert and the Queens general public Jubilee Concert in June were not "Cream of the UK Artists". So you are indicating Elton John, JLS, McCartny, etc. are second rate. I may not get excited about the monarchy but good share of the UK did get excited about the Jubilee and many were celebrating the country as well as the Queen's Jubilee, you twit.

Since apparently the UK entertainment industry does have a higher level of intelligence than you, boy, they split up the entertainment spoils. With several major events this year you will note most every significant entertainer got to do one of the events.

Maybe you ought to apologize to the UK population, boy.

Next your various references on different threads that in the whole readers of Amazon's sites would not know that music distribution is moving away from CDs and towards electronic downloads. Of course maybe you just figured that out, boy. Most everyone else knew that a long time ago. How that ends up in total sales for any given entertainer will be the responsibility of the label management and may not have any relation to the quality of the performers music.

Then, boy, from where and how you post it is obvious you think you are cute following the leading troll to try to bash his nemesis. You may have fell for the line that he is celebrating her humour but that is just a cover. The middle J stands for John, a retired third rate professor. He has issues with the performer discussed on this Amazon forum from a long time ago. Long before she was famous. Look, boy, if your so smart you can dig into the internet and find this cad's past all the way back to his University of Aberdeen amateur days. It might disgust you.

His profession demanded he have probity. He doesn't have it.

If you want to find what bridge he really lives under I will give directions. Look for it.

LOL at the post before this.

All record companies had to submit names to UM if they wanted their artist to perform at the opening/closing of the games, it was then upto UM to choose who they wanted.
It had nothing to do in sharing out artists lol.

And the comments about why Susan did not carry the Flag or light the flame )))))))) LOL

Why would they want her to do that? She has nothing to do with sport and she's not the biggest music star from the UK, even though some still think she is.
