If you watched the new BBC1 show All Together Now last Saturday evening at 7.15pm you may have seen a familiar face amongst the judges.
Bath’s own Mr Music, Grenville Jones, is one of the panel called, ‘The 100’ who choose the winners each week to go forward to sing for a massive £50,000 prize in the sing-off final show on March 3.
Dubbed by the BBC as, ‘A singing show with a difference’, 10 acts perform each week for the 100 judges sat in front of them, which includes former Spice-Girl Geri Horner. Two winners each week go through to the final show. Stand-up comedian Rob Beckett presents the show which comes from the BBC studios in Manchester.
The 100 judges come from across the UK and represent all genres of music. Grenville’s reputation as a choir leader led to his invitation to be part of the exclusive group. He is also the founder of the Golden-Oldies Charity whose fun formula of daytime sing-alongs for older isolated people now reaches across England and Wales.
“It’s a great series and certainly different from all the other TV talent and singing shows. The format of judging by a large group representing all types of music and entertainment makes for some fascinating viewing.”
Grenville’s list of choirs now numbers 14 which include the famous ‘Last Choir Standing’ Bath Male Choir. He is also the author of the popular choir novel Deep Harmony which has just been re-published with the addition of a final chapter answering the cliffhanger question – what happened next?
