Does BGT show on the 4th? I think it is a Saturday Night.... would it not be neat to have them SKYPE a segment of BGT LIVE with Jackie singing there??? That would be TOO COOL.... (of course it would be live SKYPE or other method, but not LIVE at the time of the Great Performances showing...)
::: "LIVE, Earlier Today on Britain's Got Talent, Miss Jackie Evancho made her European debut with a wonderful performance of _________. Here is a look at this, now, intercontinental voice of the WORLD!!!!"::: ... then show the clip!!!
The last audition show, of 7 is on Sat. 28th. Jackie may be singing on the KICKOFF show with stage and audience as a special guest. That may be Saturday... or if they want her on a RESULTS show, that MAY be Sunday 5th. Anyway, Jackie and entourage will be in London during PBS show premier...
NYC may be on 4th and 5th... and other dates. Lisa stated 4th for Premier, as per the EPK for Dream With Me as seen on VIDEO tab of the J.E. official Website. Those are the best quality vids.
Ehkzu, Yes, only a two-letter word, and I misspelled it. (May 1, 'on' vs. 'no') ! I wondered why Jackie's concerts weren't till Aug. What all countries will she go to? (June /July)? In GB is she goning to sing on Britan's got Talent or is that just 'thoughts' When I called PBS, they said that here in Nebraska is would only be on certain chanels and not set but a few weeks ahead. I may have to wait for the DVD or a youtube vid.
I would have to agree with Simon. Nessun Dorma is gonna give the biggest impact to an audience that doesn't know Jackie. Just like OMBC, Nessun shows off Jackie's range and it is startling coming out of a tiny body. I love what I have heard Jackie sing so far, but ND could be the "hook" that grabs people's attention and shows them what she can do. To use another cliche, ND blows open the door so Jackie can walk through.
I know I have expressed reservation about it being "over exposed" by other artists in the UK but Jackie owns the song and likes it's power or "oomph".
PTB Jackie is only singing once on BGT (that I know of). She needs the song with the most "punch", if she were going to sing additional songs then her other repertoire would get exposure. She will get the most response initially from the "shock value" of a little girl singing a big opera song in order to grab the audience by their...collars (I cleaned it up). "If you've got them by the "collar" their hearts and mind will follow".
I agree totally with Nessun Dorma or Lovers. She needs to do something that will grab attention, a wow moment. If she did Angel or All I ask of you, the reaction would be, well that was nice little girl your pretty good but nobody would be talking about it the next day.
I LOVE the fact that ND will most likely be sung on BGT.. she delivers with such power, authority, emotion, and effect as she sings that song most excellently. Now, though, get ready for the nattering nay-bobs of negativism who want to beat on a sweet child for "going there." ND makes sense for Jackie to be more CC than POP or "Integrity Music" in England. I guess that is what Simon wants, so what Simon Says...... Will be great, but we here already know that!!!
