Viewers were all excited to find out who would get the final slot for the British TV show “Let’s Dance For Comic Relief”. The show premiered in 2009 on BBC One and features celebrities doing their own rendition of popular hit songs to raise funds for charity. The show is hosted by Steven Jones and Alex Jones. Joining other finalists were the duo of James Thornton and Charlie Baker who did a rendition of the classic song “Puttin’ On The Ritz” and Noel Fielding of the “Mighty Boosh” who did a take on “Wuthering Heights” by Kate Bush. The star of the show “Emmerdale” together with comedian Baker impressed the judges with their tap dancing skills doing a Fred Astaire classic act. They also won that night’s viewers vote which automatically landed them on the finals. Thornton said that he was surprised and can’t believe that they actually won.
The judges for that night were Keith Lemon of Celebrity Juice, Lee Mack and Jack Whitehall. They had a hard time choosing who would get the other slot because the performance of Fielding and popstar Lulu who did her own rendition of the Soulja Boy hit “Crank That” were both good. Mack chose Fielding over Lulu because he tried to kiss him dressed up as a woman. Whitehall on the other hand gave his vote to Lulu so the pressure was on to Lemon who have to make the final decision on who gets in the finals. Lemon said that he liked Lulu because she had a nice performance, but his vote went to Fielding because he looked attractive. He added jokingly that he never had a thing for a man before not until Fielding showed off his feminine side on stage.
After Lemon announced the winner, Fielding said to himself that he was surprised and excited at the same time while Lulu accepted defeat with her head held high saying that she had a great time and this is all about the charity.
Other contestants that performed were Penny Smith of GMTV doing a Britney Spears act with her song “Toxic”, Jarred Christmas’ take on Madonna’s “Hung Up” and Andi Osho performed “Bad” by Michael Jackson.
Noel Fielding and the duo of James Thornton and Charlie Baker would be joining “Let’s Dance” finalists Russell Kane who danced like Beyonce in her hit song “Crazy in Love” and Katie Price who still looked hot dressed up like Freddie Mercury in the Queen song “I Want to Break Free”.
Catch the finals of “Let’s Dance For Comic Relief” on March 12 and see who among these four finalists would take the title.
