On This Day, 4 June 2012, Alfie Boe Sang…

…on the balcony at Buckingham Palace.  The occasion was of course the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and he was duetting with Renee Fleming on Somewhere, from West Side Story (thanks Annie for sharing):

Fans of Alfie with longer hair will be happy!

Earlier in the evening, Alfie performed a medley of O Sole Mio / Now or Never on the main stage which set the twitter world alight; up until that point, twitter had been asking a lot of questions along the lines of “is the sound system working” as some acts appeared to struggle.  However, within thirty seconds of Alfie starting to sing, twitter woke up to the fact that “oh, this bloke’s really good, the sound is obviously working”.  His pelvic thrust also caused a few comments!

Tonight, Alfie is performing for the first time with the Phoenix Symphony (as a replacement for Colm Wilkinson) – wonder what he’ll sing?

    Thank you Jane, surely one of Alfie’s finest moments. Apparently the reason they were standing so far apart was the width of Renee Fleming’s dress! What a smart lad, and oh that hair… 🙂 🙂 No wonder he had to fight off Grace Jones afterwards, poor boy! xx
