Romantics on New NBC reality show
May 22nd, 2005 at 7:42pm
 
"hit me baby one more time", where various 80's stars compete for another record contract and the audience decides based on performances.

The Romantics are on there, so EVERYBODY'S got to watch this and vote for them June 2nd. I think they are on the first episode.

What's everyone's thoughts on this?  At first I thought, "gee, they think the romantics are has-beens", but then I thought, well, this is good publicity.

What do you think?  Nevertheless, you gotta watch!

I hope the Romantics and all other groups who are on this show get to play more than one tune.  If so, the Romantics will definately have an advantage over most.  The Romantics are not now, and never have been, "one hit wonders" like the Knack, Billy Idol, and so many others.  If the Romantics are on, I will watch!

Please, Dennis.  Billy Idol has never been a 'one hit wonder'.   Angry
I'm concerned that our Romantics are going to be on this show.  They put out a great new CD with 61/49, and I don't want them to be considered 'has beens'.  How could they even mention the Romantics (many great songs) to the mall chick, Tiffany?!

i wish someone could confirm whether or not they are actually doing this show.  what i find weird is if you click on any of the other 4 performers, it gives you a little capsule about them but when you click on the romantics, all it says is "coming soon"

I saw a commercial for this show last night while watching NBC and there was absolutely no mention of the Romantics.  There was a list of artists/groups mentioned such as the Knack and Loverboy, but not our guys from Detroit. 

Do the poll results have an affect on who gets mentioned and who doesn't in the commercials?  I just voted which gave the Romantics a whopping .07%.

The other thing to consider is "is this show already taped?"  Maybe its why we have heard so little from the Romantics in terms of touring lately. 

Regardless, I have to wonder if the Romantics would be performing /already performed "What I Like About You" or "Talking In Your Sleep".   Since each group/artist is supposed to perform their biggest hit along with a new song, I wonder which cut from 6149 will be/was picked.

I guess we should be thankful that the Romantics will be on TV and getting exposure whether they win or not.  I just hope that they are treated with the same respect as the hacks that they are up against!

If they need a photo--I'll offer up one of mine!

Tiffany-- BLeCH!!!!!  Never listened to her then, and I will never listen to her now!

They need to get The Romantics and "What I Like about YOU" on their board-- if people hear that song, then they WILL remember our guys...

I will try to vote as often as I can.  We need to get those numbers up!

(it's up to 0.07 now!)

It might help if they had a photo on the site, so that people would actually recognize the band!!

I guarantee that more people recognize "What I LIke About YOu" than any of the songs by the other artist.  I dont' think I can let a day go by without hearing it on TV or the radio!

It looks like the Romantics have been pulled from the site all together...   ???

Is there anyone who can fill us in on what happened? Site manager, moderators, the guys themselves? I was soooo looking forward to the guys getting some exposure again!

Ok, found this link and found out this started as a british tv show.  This page lists the artists and what they sang on the british show.

It also lists the line ups for the american version. It still lists the romantics for week #1, although the official site now has a blank sillouette in place of where the romantics pic used to be.

Only someone who works with the band can tell us what happened I guess.

It is strange that the show is only a week away, yet no one from the band or close to the band has mentioned anything definite regarding the show.  The Romantics tend to avoid anything that makes them look like has-been's or a nostalgia act (Whatever happened to? on VH1 etc.) so it would surprise me if they did this show.

I doubt you will be seeing them on this show.  They have been removed from the poll and the picture has been taken down.
