A friend of mine got me tickets to the Grand Final of The Voice. I was hesitant when I heard the news because it was said in the same breath 'but you have to be there to start queuing from 4pm'. Nothing seemed more of a mince to me than hanging around boring old Fox Studios stuck in a queue for hours (the show is live and it had a start time of 7.30pm). Well, how I was wrong. There was such a good fervour amongst the crowd and it was so enjoyable to be in that queue and then on the barricades of the red carpet and to see the final show coming together of what had been the first bit of television I had watched in a long time (until 8 weeks ago I had a television and DVD but no antenna and no digital set top box and then I finally bought myself a new television so I could have an apple tv so I could watch Breaking Bad, Homeland and Girls).
What an exciting bit of television it was to partake in. CO2 canons, fireworks, flames, big fans, an audience fluffer and a whole lot of noise.... 'Delta, Delta, over here, Delta' were the cries of adoring young female fans. Then Joel Madden was singing to the Beastie Boys 'you gotta fight for your right to party'. A very memorable experience.
