That's Jarvis Cocker. He doesn't sound so much like Bowie to me - especially in that song the accent is completely different - you can hear the London intonation very strongly in Bowie whereas Cocker has a more flattened Sheffield sound - the rhythm of speech is different too, which I think feeds through into the way the lyrics are written.

No doubt very influenced by Bowie though.

I think this one is more like Bowie:

I'mma post the audio with lyrics, even though the performance is a huge part of the appeal - because I suspect there may be bits that would not make sense to an American ear without the words on screen. No need to embiggen - they have helpfully made the text large enough to view in thread

Lil Griff played this back to back with Jackson / Shatner on her show last week.

Lil Griff has excellent taste.

Some of Cocker's solo work is really good too.






Nsfw



I'm not sure whether US and British use of this word differs or not - I know it's a much more commonly used word here ... but not sure if the meaning is slightly different. Just in case - in Brit use the word cunt as an insult (either a very serious insult, or an affectionate friendly insult between mates) is used for men as much as it is used for women.

Amanda got me into Idol early this year. I've never watched it in previous years because every time I saw it on, they were doing songs I didn't know, and I didn't care about the contestants. This year, there are a couple I actually like. Knowing the back story and seeing the auditions is key.....

anyway. this chick is my favorite. I don't think she will win,. ,but she's got a really groovy voice, and picks good songs.

Maddie Poppe.

Oh she's great!

Doesn't matter of she wins or not - no way she ends this competition without offers of a next step

What was that from? I saw several celebs in the crowd. Is that David Copperfield? And the pasty white guy behind and right of Grant?

She has a beautiful voice. Her album Citizen of Glass is brilliant.
