I finally watched my DVR’d Royal Jubilee shows and was cautiously hopeful that ABC would actually let me see “Mayor of Britain” Robbie Williams who opened the show with a lively version of his classic “Let Me Entertain You.” But because ABC is American Broadcasting Corporation and America does not GET HOW BRILLIANT ROBBIE WILLIAMS IS, instead I had to curse my way through f’ing will.i.am who, BTW is not even English!!
So thank you to my darling Candy Soulmate Felicity (who IS English, so there will.i.am!) who found me a lovely clip of Robbie’s performance that had everything you could hope for in an English concert: a Royal Guards drum corps, regal fanfare, bouncing Londoners along the Mall, a string section, a sea of Union Jacks and an English superstar in a monogrammed “uniform” giving a quick crotch grab in front of two future Kings of England:
When he came on I’m not even kidding when I say I fist pumped! “Hell! YEAH! Robbie!” So listen up ABC – when this man asks to entertain you – YOU LET HIM.
