A Concert For Diana, Not Us?
Elton John, Fergie, Rod Stewart, Duran Duran, Lily Allen, Kanye West, Bryan Ferry, Joss Stone, Nelly Furtado, P. Diddy, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Status Quo, Take That, Will Young, Pharrell Williams, Tom Jones and the English National Ballet.... All in 44 minutes? I don't think so.
I'll watch NBC's "Concert for Diana" tonight (8-9 p.m., Chs 5, 2), but I don't have high hopes. When you cut a six-hour concert with an all-star line-up into an hour (44 minutes or so minus the commercials, even less with any Matt Lauer interviews with Prince Harry or Prince William), lots of stuff will be left on the editing room floor. Yes, it's a great tribute for Princes Diana, who would have been 46. But probably not so much for us. It's too bad NBC wouldn't blow off the "Law & Order" reruns tonight to air more of the concert.... or that another network (the CBS/MTV/VH1 family, or ABC/ABC Family) doesn't have the rights so more of the Wembley Stadium concert could have aired on cable.
Watch tonight and then post your concert reviews here on my blog. Which artist was the best? Which did you want to see more of? I'm curious what you think... and I bet readers of this blog will want to read your opinions tooo....
