Radio One’s Big Weekend was very special for me
The Sats were performing at Radio One’s Big Weekend in Derry-Londonderry in Northern Ireland at the¬† weekend.
It was a particularly special performance for me because I performed at the BBC sessions in Belfast ten years ago when I was trying to break into the music industry. I remember hearing that they were looking for unsigned artists to perform. There was no fee involved or anything but I was just grateful for the opportunity and the exposure.
The contrast between the two performances ten years apart is just amazing. You never know what will happen and being up there on the main stage is something I always dreamed of. It’s a totally different experience performing solo compared to with the girls. It can be quite lonely as a solo artist but having the girls means the experience is shared and that’s one of my favourite things about being a Saturday.
Our show went so well, we did an exclusive performance of our new single Gentleman. Because it was the first time we’d done it and we’d only learnt the routine a few days before, we did it early on in the set. We wanted to be as fresh as possible and give it our best and we were really pleased with how it went!
Did any of you manage to catch the performance on BBC3? I’d love to know what you thought.
