Guests appearing on tonight’s Hey Hey include Vanessa Amorosi and Jet performing.
Lisa McCune and Sigrid Thornton, both on new Nine shows, will judge Red Faces.
Vanessa Amorosi, who was first talent-spotted by Hey Hey producer Jack Strom singing in a Russian restaurant, says, “I was signed to a record contract at the age of 14 and remember watching Hey Hey its Saturday regularly as they had the cream of talent on the show. I made my first appearance in 1999 I was so nervous. I was in awe of Daryl. He is such a music lover and I was addicted to the show. I performe ‘Have a Look’ my first single on the show at the age of 17. Now I’m back to perform my new single ‘Mr Mysterious’ in 2010 and just as excited as I was in 1999.”
JET’s Chris Cester reckons, “Hey Hey brings back a lot of memories. We grew up with it. Well, everyone did really from my generation, especially as kids. There’s memorable moments in there and hopefully, we can add one too. I really applaud the show’s enthusiasm for bringing current music to a big audience in Australia. It’s one of the things that I hope brings a classic show into a new era.”
