Emotional Laura’s Adele cover “TOO powerful”. What? 😅 – All Together NowOn January 11, 2020 by Raul Dinwiddie
Laura’s interview, take one. Hi. I’m Laura. I work for the Home Office as a detainee custody officer. My job is quite serious. I don’t deal with people
that are coming here on a visa, I deal with the ones
that aren’t supposed to be here, and then I deal with the process
of making sure they leave. Breaking out into song
in that environment is not something I would do. Someone’s coming out. Ooh, ooh.
Here comes the next act. If they score more than 77,
they get a place in the top three. My job can be quite intense,
so when the weekend comes, it’s my time to just become me and do what I really love doing,
which is singing. I’m interested to see
what she’s going to do, to be fair. Yeah, I reckon a bit of indie rock,
maybe. # Everybody loves the things
you do… # What?! # From the way you talk Oh… Get in.
# To the way you move # But if by chance
you’re here alone… # Scores can change. # Can I have a moment before I go? # Cos I’ve been by myself # All night long # Hoping you’re someone # I used to know # You look like a movie # You sound like a song # My God, this reminds me # Of when we were young # Let me photograph you
in this light # In case it is the last time… #
Wow! # That we might be exactly # Like we were before we realised # We were sad of getting old # It made us restless # I’m so mad I’m getting old # It makes me reckless # It was just like a movie # It was just like a song # When we were young. # CHEERING AND APPLAUSE Adele can’t sing that well,
I’m sorry. You’re not crying, are you?
No, no, I don’t cry. 85! She gets the second spot. Well done, Laura! Yay! Smashed that out the park. Everyone’s getting high scores.
I know. Laura, that was amazing. You got 85. You got the second spot in the top
three. Thank you so much, thank you. Becky, you’re our Adele tribute act.
Yeah. You were up. What did you think?
I really enjoyed that. At first I was like,
“Oh, my God, it’s an Adele Song.” You know… Anyway…
LAUGHTER I don’t pick ’em!
Your voice is so gorgeous. It’s really full and velvety, and I love the way you made it
your own as well. It was really good, well done.
Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you. Geri. Do you know what, Laura,
you are a breath of fresh air. I love the way you just simply
came on, no bells and whistles. You just sung from your heart,
it instantly touched me. That is the bravest thing.
This is me, this was it. And that was so well-deserved.
Well done. Thank you. Thank you, Geri. Tina T. Now, you did not stand up
for Laura’s performance. Why not? I didn’t stand up
because, I’m going to be honest, I got a little bit lost and I felt a bit emotional and then I realised
that it was too late. That’s how powerful you were to me,
that I got lost. Sounds like absolute nonsense,
to be honest with you, Tina. LAUGHTER Thank you, Tina. Shuffle down here. Look at this, I’m going. Sally, Sally, you are a musical
director, but you didn’t get up. It wasn’t your cup of tea? Actually it was… You’re not going to do
the Tina T thing on me, are you? AS TINA T: You see, darling,
I got a bit lost, didn’t I? LAUGHTER Yes, Sally! Sally, why didn’t you stand up?
Come on. Sorry, Laura, where are you?
I can’t see you, sorry, love. You’re pointing out you’re blind,
Sally? That’s why? Yes. There was only one thing
that stopped me standing up and that was the words, and if you can’t hear the words,
then you can’t connect. So it was the diction for you?
It was the diction. Otherwise, it was flawless. Fair
enough. Thank you, Sally. Cheers.
