Charley says WEEK! 2010.25

June 28, 2010

Whatever happened to Spooks, best known for their 2001 hits ‘Things I’ve Seen‘ and ‘Karma Hotel‘?

Well, as it turns out they had another album in 2003, but the group disbanded shortly after former member Water Water died in a car accident. Lead singer Ming-Xia is still putting that unique voice to good use working on solo material. Last year she sang on Jurassic 5 frontman Chali 2na’s ‘4 Be Be’ from his debut album ‘Fish Outta Water’.

Charley says ARTIST! Louis Talpe

May 29, 2010

Nicole Scherzinger may reign supreme on the American dancefloor, but here in Flanders it’s actor Louis Talpe who got to take the Dancing With The Stars trophy home.

We first met Louis in 2006 as police officer Toby on tv series Mega Mindy. The show is a bit like a reverse gender Superman. Police officer Mieke turns into superhero Mega Mindy and Toby doesn’t realise that the hero he’s falling for is actually his colleague in disguise. The series proved to be a big hit with the kids and soon there were movies, stage shows, merchandise and albums sung by lead actress Free Souffriau.

With Louis’ star on the rise, he managed to secure a role in restaurant drama ‘Goesting’ and a place as one of the finalists on Dancing With The Stars 2010.

Now what I wanted to tell you about today is that a year before his freestyle would win him the dancing show, Louis had already competed in another celebrity reality show. With Free Souffriau being Soapstar Superstar’s 2008 winner and officer Toby having already featured on one Mega Mindy song, Louis was asked to show off his singing skills.

Louis turned out not to be the greatest singer, but he managed to stay in the competition for three weeks. We got to hear him sing ‘Jessie‘, ‘Save Tonight‘, ‘New York, New York‘, ‘Everybody Needs Somebody To Love‘ and  ‘She Moves In Her Own Way‘, but it’s his performance of Liquido’s ‘Narcotic‘ that I’m going to put up in celebration of his Dancing With The Stars victory!
