Obviously a great performance but a shame a group with such an extensive back catalogue and talent have to resort to a show like this.

 

one of the great vocal groups IMO.

 

none of the judges had a clue who they were.....

One of the greatest groups of all time. Amazing performance.

The morons on that show should of been doffing their caps and bowing. They don't deserve to be in the same  room!

Watching this explains why I get no responses to my podcast show on the predominantly USA Soulful Detroit. Americans are, in general, ignorant of any thing that is not "a hit"...not interested in anything that's not mainstream. I don't particularly mean this young audience.

Wonder what the reaction would have been if they had done "Average guy" or "Please take me back" my first reaction was that Simon Cowell and his muppets are not qualified to run the rule over The Masqueraders, however, after listening to Tats on the subject, he rightly reflected that Simon Cowell could be the ticket for these guys to make some real cash, then so be it I say, apparently, group member and mainstay, Sam Hutchinson works a nightshift job earning minimum wage, I remember when they did Prestatyn a few years ago, I was fortunate enough to speak with them, I asked where the great Lee Jones was, "driving a truck" came the reply which gutted me totally and ruined my weekend, so, for all of their countless soulful masterpieces (no exaggeration)that we so rightly love, they haven't paid the bills. I don't care now if they get up there and sing nursery rhymes, just as long as they are paid handsomely and get some well earned recognition, lets be honest, if they did break out with those incredible words "If I was a rich man" Cowell and his sugar coated arse lickers just wouldn't get it.

A top, top outfit with so many brilliant tunes to be proud of. Not sure this song does justice to their talent or offers a passport to fame and fortune. They could easily break into the tribute band circuit and could hold their own in Vegas. Their 60's and 70's output would also be showcased to good effect on tours to European, American and Far East/Australian soul venues. The music business always was, and still is a fickle beast - the Masqueraders would be better off steering clear of novelty shows, but who knows, this exposure may lead to something and deservedly so.

Totally agree kev...i was pissed off at the thought of Cowell and his cronies judging 'our ' Masqueraders but then it came to me it's a  sort of envy/jealous thing that you get when you see the look on someone's face when hearing what you heard that first time...i hope they get all the riches and hope someone drops the grapevine CD in the judges laps...Lee Jones...truck driving...Bill Brandon was too...

Only just seen this post. I was totally blown away by the honesty and humility of the guys. It was  awesome. brought tears to my eyes. Ive had the pleasure of seeing them perform live twice and the absolute privilege of meeting them once.

Wow, really did not see that one coming! fantastic clip. Perhaps they could do one of the hi 45s next like 'wake up fool' and dedicated it to Simon Cowell.:wicked:

A tear too. Amazing to see this. Love to write them a song....I hope they get something out of this and a chance to record.  Something really that compliments the material we know about would be the icing on the cake for these gentlemen who never stopped dreaming. Very inspirational. It could be something like this that triggers a more soulful approach to song writing/production for old and younger groups interested in this sound.

Surely Cowell must be doing some homework on these guys and must of listened to their classics. He's not stupid, even if he is musically challenged.

Damn....they lost out on judges vote and votes cast. Such a shame, but hopefully they will get a little bit of the success they have deserved for so long!
