ROBBIE WILLIAMS TO IMPERSONATE ELVIS AT MTV AWARDS

Just found this on the Web:


Brian :roll:


WILLIAMS WILL BE KING OF MTV AWARDS


Also see:
ROBBIE WILLIAMS
ELVIS PRESLEY

British pop star ROBBIE WILLIAMS intends to upstage rivals at the MTV Europe Music Awards (EMAs) in Portugal on Thursday night (03NOV05) by performing as ELVIS PRESLEY.

The singer will don Presley's iconic white leather jumpsuit, steal his quiff style and perform either his latest track TRIPPING or follow-up single ADVERTISING SPACE.

A source says, "The song's all about Elvis, and Robbie's already recreated him for the video.

"He's got all the gear and wants to blow everyone's mind by stepping on stage as Elvis.

"Rob's looking to upstage everyone. And what better way to do it that by dressing up as the King."

No matter what you think of Robbie he is an Elvis fan:

1) His last TV special was based on the '68 Special
2) He burst into Suspicious Minds on Top Of The Pops once
3) He is known to 'pray' to Elvis' spirit before a live show (nice....?) to give him courage.

... make your own mind up?

No one could pull something off like this except possibly Robbie, so I'm gonna wait and see what he comes up with.

The guy makes me nervous when I hear of things like this, but that might not be a bad thing.

Should be good.

I have always had a sneaking admiration for Robbie.

BTW which jumpsuit was made of white leather :wink:

Thu Nov 03, 2005 9:22 pm

The one Robbie will be wearing :lol:

"Boy that leather is hot" - good job it's November!!

Well he's either gonna be wearing black leather or a white jumpsuit, maybe they're gonna go for a cross between two.

One thing to "sing Elvis" another entirely to "wear Elvis". :?

don't do it Robbie :shock:

Dieses ist schlechte Nachrichten! Daß moran keine Kategorie, er hat, können nicht singen und er definately sieht wie der Dummkopf aus, den er immer ist, wenn er sogar versucht, eine Elvis Personifizierung zu bilden. Ich habe nie dieses Zicklein gemocht!

Never seen Robbie Williams before, just wondering how he will measure up. Any chance somebody can do a "tail of the tape", you know like they do for boxers, as kind of a comparison?

If you literally mean size, then Robbie is about the same height, ie 6ft.

But, I just tuned in to the awards and Robbie didn't wear an Elvis outfit at all. He was in a regular dark suit. The rumour was wrong.

Can't believe I sat through most of that appalling show for nothing. One of the most annoying parts was Madonna giving the award to Bob Geldof. I predicted when she came on that she would have to say f*ck at some point, because she seems to have the mistaken belief that it's shocking and she might get some publicity out of it. That or it's a desperate attempt for a middle-aged mother to still seem edgy. She did the same thing at the Live 8 concert and it was predictable and pathetic. She did of course say it - actually f*cker - and even threw in sh*t for good measure. What a boring woman she has become.

Madonna, Bobbie Williams - both sh*t twats.

Fri Nov 04, 2005 5:11 am

Come on, RW is the only person of my generation (the people around 30) that I would call an entertainer. He really can sing and he always delivers a good show. I'm looking forward to his performance.

To MB280E: Erst Deutsch lernen, dann Deutsch schreiben. :wink:

The latest single (which he performed on the show) doesn't really show his voice off to its potential though. The falsetto chorus is quite catchy but doesn't sound particularly comfortable. I've heard the Elvis tribute song and that's better IMO.

Well, I have Robbies new CD Album and it's fantastic. The new single really grows on you with each listen.

He really is the biggest star around these days!!! :P

ROBBIE WILLIAMS TO IMPERSONATE ELVIS AT MTV AWARDS

That could have meant he won a music award and wasn't showing up in person to collect it. :lol:
