Interview with Rob Becket - host of All Together Now
All Together Now starts Saturday 27th January on BBC1
Rob Beckett - Host
Tell us about All Together Now...
All Together Now is a new singing show with a twist, there are 100 judges. The aim of the game for the acts is to get as many of The 100 to stand up and join in. There are five heats, leading to the Grand Final when the final ten acts will compete for the £50,000 prize.
Tell us about The 100...
Geri is the captain of The 100 and leads from the front. She offers advice and, as one part of the world’s biggest pop group and a solo artist, she’s seen and done it all, so is well-qualified.
The rest of The 100 are a group of people with different musical backgrounds and experiences. To get them all up on their feet at once takes a seriously talented performer.
As host what is your role?
My role is to reveal the score to the contestants and chat with The 100. As a stand-up, going out on your own, people judging me, is what I do for a living. I know how awful that is, that’s why this show is so special. I know nothing about singing but that’s fine because that’s the job of The 100! I’m here just to have fun.
What is the best thing about the show?
It is fun, loads of people singing just makes you feel happy. What’s great about this show is that when you hear a song you love, you want to sing along but on this show you have The 100 joining in as well.
