As some of you may already know, us mermaids were on the television! Yes, our first ever live TV singing session and it couldn’t have been nicer for us.
We arrived at STV Glasgow with our guitar, ukulele and a guitalele borrowed from a friend, and were taken to The Riverside Show studio. Which had it’s very own kitchen, our kind of studio.
Once we soundchecked all we had to do was wait, drink coffee and put on our high heels. So that’s what we did! We also had a wee wander around the STV building and waved at The Clyde Auditorium, as we performed there last year and it was nice to see it again.
Then it was SHOW TIME. We lounged about in the green room and watched the other guests being interviewed. Then it was our turn. We sang two of our original songs, ‘Loving Out Loud’ or LOL for short, and ‘A Lullaby For Bella’. Two very different songs but Mermaid songs all the same.
The presenters and team at The Riverside Show couldn’t have been any more welcoming and we really enjoyed our time on live television.
Since Wednesday, it’s been all go on social media with a video of our song ‘Loving Out Loud’ gaining thousands of views on Facebook and being shared all about the bit. So thank you for that and thanks to anyone who watched us perform on the night.
Our wee niece couldn’t quite believe it when she was watching HER aunties on the television, replacing Dora The Explorer.
