Liveblogging: Ricky Gervais @ The Concert For Diana

I KNEW Ben Stiller would appear. He’s made a prerecorded appearance introducing Ricky Gervais. He’s actually funny. He just mock-insulted The Princes in his Stillery voice. Heh. I used to work for Ben Stiller. I’ll leave it at that.

Ricky Gervais is hilarious. He’s wearing a wee headset. Inneresting.
Oh – he’s gonna sing. GARETH (the original Dwight) is there! He’s gonna sing, too.

Ricky is vamping… waiting for Elton John.
He’s threatening to sing again. People are suggesting he dance.
Diddy is NOT amused.
I think Ricky is legitimately lost. They keep putting up signs saying “2 minutes to go” and “3 minutes to go.” He’s a trooper.

He did the dance. He still has 2 minutes to kill. Poor guy. He’s singing the Bowie song from “Extras”. He is killing time by singing a song about how fat he is.

HAVE MERCY… they finally cut away. Now the VH1 people are vamping.
What the fuck is up with Elton?
The VH1 People are totally lost. They’re talking about David Beckham AGAIN. And… the weather. They got nothing. This is kinda hilarious.
They’ve cut to the montage of the day’s performances that they JUST PLAYED.
Something is wrong. Technical difficulties.

With what? Elton? His piano?

  1. You know, we didn’t get to see any of this in the Australian broadcast. All we got was one song from everyone (?) except Kanye (but we all know that he did a sneaky sneak). The way it was edited was ridiculously disjointed. There were no introductions, no commentary…. just a “neat” 2 1/2 hours of random stage performances. Was there some kind of finale? We didn’t see it. It just kind of… ended – half an hour before the tv guide said it was supposed to.

    Poor old Ricky. We didn’t see the second Elton performance. I am not crying.

    Ben Stiller is not funny. Ever.

  2. That’s why I “Liveblogged”
    As you may have guessed – I am quite pleased with myself.
    Better than talking to myself… right?

  3. i GUARANTEE you this: Stiller will never, ever sing “the little fat man with the pug-nosed face” for the benefit of the globe.
