Big Reunion 2 continued at a pace last night, with the start of rehearsals. Here were some of my highlights from the episode:

Tito Jackson is no messing
3T were lovely in last night’s episode. There were a lot of questions from the other bands about what it is like to be a Jackson, but the three of them just seem like genuine guys (with amazingly white teeth). But their dad, Tito, came to watch them in rehearsal and wasn’t happy with their lack of dancing. So much so that he took his belt off, seemingly in a threatening manner. TOTALLY WEIRD.
Tension in Girl Thing’s camp
It’s so obvious that certain Girl Thing are still unhappy with past events and are just trying to keep the peace in order to do the show. Jodi said there had been ‘bickering’ in the group and Nikki was pretty clear with her line “I’ll be honest, I really didn’t like you” to Anika. But they hugged afterwards. Still, awkward.
Eternal are hard work
Vernie can’t dance, is scared of stairs and generally was just unhappy with the whole rehearsal. I felt most sorry for Paul, the choreographer, who bore the brunt of Vernie’s bad mood.
BeBe Winans came back*
After teasing us by auditioning the boyband members to sing the part of BeBe Winans, the man himself returned to perform at the gig. Which those of us on Twitter already knew, but it was still nice to see him. I most enjoyed BeBe’s stance on rehearsals; “I don’t need to rehearse”. Fair enough, he’s only got one bit of one song, after all.
* unfortunately, Louise didn’t
Crazy Kav came out to play
I’ve found Kavana’s scenes in previous episodes difficult to watch; he’s obviously not happy with his life and is on some kind of emotional rollercoaster. He turned up drunk to rehearsals and the rest of 5th Story were unhappy. Nice guy Adam Rickitt tried to help but Kav wasn’t having any of it, swearing more than is necessary. More than anything, I hope this experience is good for Kav and doesn’t make his situation worse.
Linzi from Girl Thing got a tattoo for Brian McFadden
We know from previous episodes that Girl Thing’s Linzi dated Westlife’s Brian McFadden until her record label told her to end it; in that time, Linzi had a ‘three leaf clover’ tattoo in his honour. That’s real love, that.
5th Story will be performing Another Level’s ‘Freak Me’ at the Hammersmith Apollo gig - watch the original:
