I'm in the UK, too, up in Newcastle. I didn't see the BBC show but I'll be on the lookout for Ms. Pike's name - she'll surely be in the news.
I did watch the re-broadcast of the Classical Brit Awards last night and thought the show was great. It was lovely to see Russell Watson and Andreas Bocelli perform.
When Watson was in Newcastle last month, I was lucky enough to get tickets to the performance. It was fantastic!
