[Duelling Divas] "Memory" From "Cats"

I've been around a fair few years. And I've known that there's a musical dedicated to my most favouritest of creatures for most of that time. Yet, I still have not taken my toosh to see the musical, Cats.

It could have something to do with me hating people and not wanting to be sat next to a stranger for an extended period of time. But that doesn't explain why I've never watched it online or when it's been on television...hmmm. None of this is your concern, so I'll save the rest of this self-exploitory descent into madness for my angst-ridden diary.

Shirley Bassey Covers "The Lady Is A Tramp" @ The 2014 Royal Variety Show

Dame Shirley Bassey is racking up these Royal Variety Show performances- this being her ninth!

Looking and sounding absolutely magnificent, the Diva owned the stage on the night in only the way a seasoned professional ever could. Singing her cover of The Lady Is A Tramp, Bassey's voice was so resonant in its sound I'm almost convinced the microphone wasn't even needed!

Ever the Lady, Shirley said of performing: "It just gets better and better. It was an honour to be a part of this year’s show and to share the stage with such great talent."

Class act!

[Watch]Veteran Divas Barbra Streisand And Shirley Bassey Shine Bright @2013 Oscars

What with the way that time has affected some of our most famous Diva's voices, you'd think a steep decline in vocal ability was as an inevitable as wrinkles and reading glasses as one ages. However, veteran Divas Barbra Streisand and Shirley Bassey showed us, at the 2013 Oscars, how this isn't necessarily the fate of all singers.

Check out both performances, as well as my two pennies, below:
