The Boys on Sound from BBC Switch.
(This was filmed when they were in London on Thursday last week, but aired Saturday.)
The gist of Sound is that it is an informal party, in a secret location, attended by celebrity friends and some very lucky studio audience members. The set of the show is an overcrowded apartment in which only six people get to sit, while everyone else stands. You get the impression that the Fire Marshall may bust in at any moment. Because the audience is selected, they are enthusiastic, but polite. It is hosted by Nick Grimshaw and Annie Mac.
They chat, participate in quizzes and open and close the show with performances of “SOS” and “Burnin’ Up” respectively. It is a nice appearance, and sort of makes me loathe the options we have in the US. They are grilled with a quiz of obscure British Law (in which they do surprisngly well!), are pitched some Jonas Brothers Merch ideas, and Kevin participates with fellow guest Noel Clarke in the “Quiz of Shame” where the only way to win is to reveal your “uncool” knowledge.
Kevin and Noel compete against two audience members whose prize will be the contents of Kev and Noel’s pockets (and Noel’s shoes) if they win. Kevin puts in a guitar pick (or a “plectrum”, in Britspeak), a used napkin, a “London A to Z” book, a button, and other bits. Being that it is a contest of useless “uncool” knowledge, it will not shock you that Kevin’s team wins. Those ladies (who where skiving – cutting class or work – to be at the show) REALLY wanted that napkin. Oh well.
Also, they chat a little about how the Jonas Brothers hanging out with the cast of HSM could be bad for the health of teenagers around the world, and Garbo has on a nice blue sweater.
