They’re simply the best!

By John Zammit

THE first heat of Tenerife Loves Karaoke, sponsored by The Duke Shops, Costa Adeje, was launched last Saturday night. And, as always, the competition took off with a bang, at a packed Happy Days house in Los Cristianos.

But what did surprise me this year was the variety of songs performed. We started with Keith singing Karaoke favourite Words, by Boyzone, followed by a unique version of Bombastic (Brexit based), and then a Shirley Bassey classic, I Who Have Nothing by Janet, who has been in the TLK final before.

Next came Don’t Stop Believing, and then a brilliant version of Pink’s Who Knew, sung by Charley. Rob closed the first half with The Calling’s Wherever You Will Go.

And there was no let-up after a short break. A rare song to be heard on Karaoke, I Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know, by Blood, Sweat & Tears, was followed by Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit, and then Keith’s Human, by The Killers.

An excellent version of No Doubt’s Don’t Speak was performed, and then came John with Wasn’t Me, another Shaggy song (own lyrics again).

Shirel ended the second session with The Shirelles’ Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?

A short break was taken, and the judges then confirmed that Charley and Shirel were chosen for the sing-off.

Shirel was up first, singing Tina Turner’s Simply the Best, while Charley opted for a Whitney Huston number, I Learned From The Best.

It’s never easy for the judges, because everyone performed so well, giving the audience a fun-filled night of entertainment.

However, it is a competition, and it was confirmed that the first two contestants going through to the semi-final, and, ultimately, to win 1,000 euros and a chance to perform at this year’s Tenerife Entertainment Awards, were Charley Stewart and Shirel Hayton, each receiving a heat trophy on the night.

We would like to thank everyone who entered the heat at  Happy Days, and a big thanks to the owners and staff, who made this another memorable night.

The second heat of Tenerife Loves Karaoke takes place on Monday (18th March) at The Sky Bar, Puerto Colon. If you would like to enter, you can register direct at the venue, or by calling 822 141 517.
