I Blame Koko

The Tesco Entertainment Album Chart Show features performances from new and established acts at London's Koko club in Camden. Tonight JLS, Mika and the Courteeners performed and we were there to experience the action. With a triple platinum selling debut number one album, two number one singles and two MOBOs. They may not have won X Factor but JLS have gone on to become the UK’s hottest band.

In front of a majority Indie crowd, the foursome were always going to endure a fair amount of banter and we responded accordingly. Mimicking their dance routine and providing heart shaped signs with our hands, I felt that our appreciation was well received! I'm sure that when this event is shown on television that we are going to be the most active fans at the front of the stage area. Disappointed that the band opted to just lip-sync but I didn't even know they were making an appearance. Mika was next to perform songs from his album The Boy Who Knew Too Much. I really enjoyed his performance and I want the custom belt he taunted me with as he lept about the stage in an energetic manner. The evening ended with the Courteeners, I have read that lead singer Liam Fray personifies the typical Manchester front man. Although on this performance he was under par! I managed to clash with the video camera and our group were eventually told to calm down. Overall an impressive return for the Album Chart Show and I will be watching the shows on television and awaiting the invitation for the next installment!
