Solea ...with a difference...watch t... 

what can i say ...genius...if this was an entry for Eurovision they would have won......if they also had Engelbert Humperdidn't of course eyyy Ron...

RE: Eurovision

I feel bad for UK...they could have Elvis and Michael Jackson do a duet...wont matter...they don't have many neighbors...all u need to predict most scoring in Eurovision is a map...and of course...helps if you don't have the oldest guy in the world singing for you ...sorry i am teasing...

Imagine how the young guy from Norway with the plucked eyebrows and 2 repeating dancesteps feels...he came last after the oldest guy in the world...he was the only one that was too good to take an interview with Australian television...before the final...the reporter said they were in the same hotel..."Its gonna be awkward if i run into him ...i wont know where to look"

Talk about playing a lady!

"Here, hold still; this'll just take a minute."

I don't get the point of her wearing the instrument. It's like it just restricts her movement when he's playing. And when he's not playing, then she's stuck with this apparatus strapped to her body. That said, though, I liked the sound of the sax with the guitar.

I mean, I like the idea but 14 minutes of that is a bit too much...

oh was it ? sorry..

a dancer emailed me this cause some friends of mine were asked to be in it...or do something with this guys or something to that effect....they didn't do it...

its a shame because they are all capable artists...and the sax player is great, but a little too much sax for my taste for one number, it losses its effect...but he is great

I really enjoyed this. Maybe not as a flamenco performance, but as music in its own right I found it interesting. The first 8 minutes created quite an atmosphere. The second half didn't impress me as much; trying to fit the baile and sax into the same space was too much. Perhaps it would have been better if it had been separated into two distinct acts. Just my opinion anyway.

Yeah, that was distracting. He kept subtly moving about to play her sax in different places (...I never expected that I'd type that sentence... ); so much so that I kept expecting him to do something. It's like if he'd started juggling, smoking a cigarette, or doing some kind of performance art, it would've looked normal.
