Which Artist Would You Have Preferred At The AFL Grand Final?

Written by Jacqui James

YESTERDAY AUSTRALIA and parts of the world stopped to watch the AFL Grand Final. As usual they had pre-match “entertainment” which was Meat Loaf “singing” a medley of his classics. Today in a newspaper it was reported the “singer” was paid between $500,000 and $600,000.

Meat Loaf sounded absolutely out of tune (and breath) for all of the painful thirteen minutes and fourty-two seconds. It was totally embarrassing for the AFL who paid Meat Loaf a small fortune for his piss-weak appearance.

Then our Aussie superstar Vanessa Amorosi belted out our National Anthem! Her voice is so powerful and she thrived in front of the 90,500 crowd.

Below is Meat Loaf’s performance from yesterday, then Vanessa on The Footy Show.

I'm an Australian author and music journalist from Melbourne. I've had articles and poetry published in several magazines and newspapers since finishing my Diploma in Professional Writing and Editing in 2001. In 2010 Gigs 'n Interviews was born. I launched it with my first big named interview and that was Vanessa Amorosi and then in 2012 I felt unbelievably privileged to interview Ronan Keating. I'm extremely proud of what Gigs 'n Interviews has become as it's seen as a platform for emerging artists and entertainers to be heard.

Looking forward to writing more children's books, I hope to change the wrong perception of children and adults with disabilities as I was born with Severe Cerebral Palsy (like Christy Brown who wrote My Left Foot). People can view my books at
