OK.....I try to watch this every year...I love classical music, but tonight it went from one extreme to another for me.
I like to watch the BBC1 coverage, which is usually the last 1-2 hours of the proms. One of tonight's soloists was Lang Lang who I think looks very similar to Michael McIntyre.
Then there was a "feature"...then the usual "winding-up"...This made me cry...cos I can't sing any more, and it woke up so many memories.
At the same time there were fireworks going off, part of the "heritage weekend" held by my current hometown. Tomorrow should see the display of vintage/old cars on the prom, and maybe a display by the Red Arrows..and tomorrow night another firework display.
Two years ago this weekend I met my lovely Lithuanian friend...and I miss him so very much.
