I might be South African, hate the Australian accent, and managed to convince my parents not to move there when I was in primary school, but I have to put my dislike for the country aside for one man. Ricky Ponting.
The man has been a stalwart for Australian cricket and a true ambassador for the game over a 17 year career. He is their top run scorer and has played in over 160 tests. He has lead their side to a number of World Cup wins and was the worlds #1 Test ranked side for ages.
Holy flying rabbits this man is talented. Ok, so he hasn’t created his own music here, but take a listen to this mashup of 50 chart topping songs from 2012. Really incredible to hear a years worth of top music in 8 minutes.
So after my rant last week about Justin Bieber not being confirmed yet, I am pleased to announce that we can put all these rumours to bed officially. This morning it was announced that he would be coming, but upon looking at the Big Conerts website as well as 5fm & Computicket showed nothing. Not a single blog post.

I was by no means a fan at all before last night. I went there excited to see The Darkness with the added benefit of getting to see a great performance. I barely knew any songs never mind any of the lyrics, but holy balls, that show last night was mind blowing, and I honestly don’t think I will get to see a better all round performance ever again.
It was incredible. I have never witnessed such an amazing overall performance. It wasn’t a concert, it was a full theatrical performance with dancing, singing and some truly awesome entertaining.
I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I knew it would be in your face and very big, and it certainly was. I am still lost for words actually.
Singing – 9/10 – She did a lot more singing than I thought she would, and when she did she hit most of the notes. I was very impressed with this and the fact that she actually played the guitar and piano a bit. She is actually very muscially talented much to my surprise.
Dancing – 10/10 – There were dance moves for every song, with a stage full of dancers always perfectly in time and just beautifully composed. She could join in time at any point of any song and be perfectly in time. It was quite incredible to be honest and all while singing the majority of the song.
