Wednesday afternoon

Mikey Barber Rob-B-Williams tribute act bounced onto the stage looking superbly dressed in a black sequined tailcoat backed by two glamourous dancers this high energy act gave us an enjoyable opening to the afternoon’s session.

Chloe Ashton-Milton took to the stage presenting her Taylor Swift tribute act, this lookalike/sound alike was vocally very good and visually Chloe managed to look good wearing just shorts, T-shirt and a trilby hat.

London based Nancy Cecelia demonstrated her vocal range by choosing three completely different numbers including her own version of the classic ‘I will always love you’ and finishing with an excellent rendition of ‘Let’s hear for the boy.’ If you are looking for eye candy. Nancy is beautiful.

Comedian/Impressionist Anil Desai has a wide range of voices in his repertoire, as he kept them coming fast and furious. I feel that if he was to put in more appropriate gags to match the characters he presents then he will have one awesome act.

If you’re looking for a Jessie Jay tribute act, you need not look any further than Donna Ramsdell presenting her Jessie Live show, full of energy and complete with backing dancers, a real knock out of a show.

Nicky Hart as Elvis wore a superb blue sequined one piece jumpsuit, he put his heart and soul into his performance, however he does not look like Elvis. Does anyone remember Kenny Gee? Who looked and sounded exactly like Elvis.

Neneth Lyons introduced as all the way from the Phillipines now living in Essex chose popular numbers which she performed with enthusiasm. Neneth is a real likeable character, I would suggest that she dresses more for the stage.

Opening with his version of ‘I just want you to dance with me tonight’ and backed by dancers that looked superb in sequined dresses Nick Walton as Olly Murs put on a first class performance to close the afternoon session with. Whatever I say about Nick, I don’t feel I will do him justice. He is every inch a true pro. Hats off to I-Stage Group for representing such good quality acts.
