Your Face Sounds Familiar: Bieber, Bonnie and being Jessie J
Thanks for reading my blog.
Well it’s certainly been a busy old time over the last couple of weeks!
Being Justin Bieber on Your Face Sounds Familiar was brilliant fun and although I didn’t win I was thrilled to be in the top three. Matt did an amazing job as Freddie Mercury and was a thoroughly deserving winner!
Next up for me was Bonnie Tyler, which scared the life out of me as her voice is so completely different to mine and to anyone else’s I’d impersonated on the show. I really had to work hard at getting her husky sound and to be honest I was extremely nervous going into the semi final, I felt quite emotional.
What’s incredibly difficult about a show like Your Face Sounds Familiar is only having a couple of days to encapsulate each person. None of us on the show are singing full time professionally and so we are literally giving it our best shot every week at doing the best vocal/acting impression we can with very limited time. I didn’t get to my rehearsals for Bonnie or Justin Bieber until the Friday morning! I was therefore very shocked and overwhelmed at winning last week as I thought Alexander was incredible at impersonating Pavarotti. I’m extremely grateful to everyone who voted for me as the money we are raising for my charity Bliss will really make a huge difference.
So into the final we go this weekend! Yet again I’m absolutely terrified because I’m performing as Jessie J whose voice is absolutely fantastic – she’s not a judge on The Voice for nothing! She’s super confident and full of attitude, which I am most definitely not and so i’ve got my work cut out for me!
I’m practising as hard as I can and keeping my fingers crossed that i’ll do my best, but to be honest whoever wins on Saturday night will deserve it as we’ve all worked so hard and become such a team. I’m actually really sad it’s the end as I’ve made some lovely friends and we’ve become like a little family.
Anyway, I’ll let you know how I get on!!
Love Natalie xx
