The first tribute song that I performed at Britain's got talent 2017 was for Stephen Mulherne, the host of Britain's got more talent. The song was one of those that just came out naturally. I had just finished writing the lyrics for a client, and it was 2am, I was so tired. I made the decision that I could not start Stephen's song, and it would have to wait until the net day. Just as I walked into the bedroom, the melody for the first line and the words came into my head. "Stephen Mulherne, when will you ever learn?"
I already knew that I was going to focus on the catchphrase "Unbelievable" How could everything be unbelievable?
Over the next few minutes the song just fell in to place and it was completely finished within 10 minutes
When I got into the Britain's got more talent temporary studio area, it wasn't long before I realised what the aim of this segment really was.
Stephen Mulherne went right up to the camera and said the words "Friar Tuck"
I realised then that the aim of this segment was to take the mickey out of me.
Luckily, because I had prepared the song about Stephen, I took control. As the song started I could see that something was changing slowly. The producer / assistant was still egging him on to play his guitar which turned out to be an inflatable one.
No, said Stephen "This is good" Isn't this the theory behind what I do, Everyone thinks that a song about them is good, everyone. After I did the main audition Stephen made a point of speaking to me and congratulating me for "Storming It"
