So, you may not know that I am a bit of a musical reality tv obsessive. It's a failing, I know. I'm also an insane theatre geek. Today these two collided.

I have been watching The Voice since the very first episode and loved the concept. Last season was excellent and while I'm not a fan of Dia Frampton's album, I still adore her voice and love the talent that the show threw up.

This season is even better, some really unique voices and I want to draw sparkly hearts around Adam and Blake - actual quote (Blake talking to Adam about a performer). "I think she just got emotional, and you do that to me. You make me giddy; you make me fall apart. I lose my voice when you're around." (Someone write me fic? Fren, I'm looking at you)

Anyway, last week was Jordis Unga, who I watched when she was tiny and wee and be-dreadlocked in Rockstar:INXS and performing alongside Mig Ayesa who I know from We Will Rock You in London. I only know Mig because of Tony motherfucking Vincent, who turned up on the show this week.

I think I can state conclusively, that Tony Vincent has, indirectly, had the biggest influence on my life outside of my family. I saw him in WWRY for my 21st birthday, many, many, many moons ago. There was something utterly magnetic in his performance, and for the first time in my life, went on the internet to search for more information about a person and getting involved in a fandom as more than a lurker. That cascaded a chain of events that led to me making (and losing) a group of friends < full tl:dr story here.

Anyway, suffice it to say, I have feelings surrounding him. And then he went and sang we are the champions. With the hand movements that so entranced me first time round, and I... I don't know what I felt, glee at seeing something I remember clearly but haven't seen for so many years, panic as everything surrounding the group was stirred up, this terrifyingly painful nostalgia for times I can't get back and I'm just marvelling at how different a person I am now. Anyway, I sat crying, and am still tearing up as I type and I just am amazed at the power music has in our lives.

I hope he does well.
