Episode 1: All Together Now

Summary

New series. Rob Beckett hosts the musical talent show with a twist, as a range of singers step on-stage for a chance to win a £50,000 cash prize. The judging panel takes the form of `The 100', a large collective of music experts and performers from all over the UK led by Geri Horner. However, in this talent show, the key to success is encouraging the judges to sing along too, and the more panellists each singer manages to win over, the better their chances of proceeding to the grand final.

Review

Have you ever looked at a talent contest and thought, “What that needs is 96 more judges”? If so, here’s the show for you, a light-on-its-feet crowdpleaser with the soul of a pub singalong and a big, bonkers gimmick.

The gimmick is “the 100” – a panel of singers and coaches from around Britain who both judge the acts and offer a kind of on-screen Gogglebox commentary. If they are swept up by a performance they stand-up, press their buttons and join in: whoever gets the most votes from this jiving jury goes through to the final.

Geri Horner is the 100’s honorary leader but it’s court jester Rob Beckett who keeps things cheery. He has a good line in tart asides when some of the judges get a bit showbiz. (A cruise-ship director called Andy announces, “I’m known as the Soul Man!” to which Beckett replies, “By who?”) And crucially, some of the singers aren’t bad.
