TX 9 - The Semi-Final
It’s The Semi-Final! Let’s Jump Right In!
Hey all! As you can see, I was all set to go on this week’s blog post…but we’re in the midst of a power outage due to a winter storm, so no Dancing On Ice semi-final for me. Oh well! Can’t control the weather. ❄❄
As much as I love the show, I’m using this time to bask in the experience of last night’s amazing show by Britain’s own Sir Elton John. An incredible experience with a huge age range of fans…if you haven’t planned to go, I highly recommend it. I think he’s got a couple of shows in the UK in June - then a long Farewell Run in 2020, fittingly ending in the UK.
I first skated to Elton John music when I was about 9 years old - a British Invasion-themed show I was invited to in the Midwest US. I chose “Your Song,” the Moulin Rouge version, and kept that show program in various forms for more than 5 years. Elton John’s music is truly timeless and his impact global. The whole band was incredible, especially drummer Ray Cooper. Don’t miss the show!
Good luck to the Dancing On Ice Finalists next week! May the best skater or vote-getter win!
