Do you like a dramatic performance. One that draws you in and makes you feel for the singer. A singer who smoulders in front of you?

Well today it's smoulder central. Before I reveal who it is, Mr Phil tells me that she was a mule in the Green Room, obtaining free alcohol for her friends who weren't strictly entitled to free alcohol. If only Mr Phil had been one of her friends as I'm sure he would have got as squiffy as she did. It is, of course, Amandine Bourgeois. The surname is evocative enough, although that might have been a different story in 1790s France.

Amandine is 39 today.

Bonne anniversaire, Amandine!
