    How can the judges leave out Ronnie Clarke?????? and put in Boring Smokey Burke and Colin Spencer that all he does is attack his own colleagues every year? These judges don’t like humour, they like boredom

      Good question, Donna. I was wondering what happened to De Announcer after all the fire he flung in that song, “Vote”.

    Where is de Announcer and TC. 90% of those sounds are boring…no kinda humour at all. Social commentary 25yrs ago was better than now
