The 4th episode saw Vick chat to Mimi Webb, Dan D'lion, and Cam from Sigma & John Newman. ZieZie was included but got no chat with Vick. Perhaps starkest was the Sigma chat, as Cam's fellow member Joe was suffering with covid. John was in the studio with him to sing their new song. Perhaps this series will only be finite as lockdown eases, but it's a marked improvement on the usual.

Fresh - This Month
Another run of performances, some more ornate than others, whilst still keeping to social distance. Ella Henderson, Ava Max, James Bay, Zara Larsson, Sports Team, PS1 ft Alex Hosking and The Vamps all did their latest single or thereabouts.

Fresh From Home - Beabadoobee
September's choice has had a hit with help from Powfu, but hardly pulling up trees on her own account. She was self-taught on the guitar by following video tutorials. She came from the Philippines, but lives in Londdon now. She was surprised to get a Brits nomination (presumably for the Rising Star type thing).

Episode 5 sees Josie Man and Delilah Montagu managing their bits without talking to Vick, whilst Foxes and Lady Leshurr did chat to her. Odd that the newer acts were left to their own devices really. Leshurr has subsequently been announced for the next series of Dancing on Ice in early 2021, along with Jason Donovan and others, so maybe fame is finally around the corner for her?

Fresh This Month - October
Big names like Billie Eilish and B Young, but nothing too exciting, even if something fresh from Katy Perry made a nice change.

Fresh From Home - Bree Runway
October's choice, marking Black History Month, is a Londoner with blue hair. Her cousin gave her the name. She has performed for Michelle Obama. She misses the live buzz of performance. She did a couple of tracks, neither of which were Ain't It.

The final episode saw Vick talking, sometimes with Griff, Matilda Homer, The Snuts and Jess Glynne. They were in odd locations like sheds, churches or rehearsal studios. 

Overall it's been a good series which I suspect will be back in 2021, as circumstances still permit.

Later w/Jools Holland - Celeste
Her winning of "Sound of 2020" seems a very long time ago, but she discussed her story to date, which seems to have been via Youtube and Soundcloud. She did the Stop This Flame video in New Orleans. She picked performances by Alicia Keys, Eartha Kitt, Willis Earl Beal, Alabama Shakes and slowthai.

Fresh From Home - Tate McRae
She's a dancer from Canada, and had her own YT channel. She was contacted by 11 labels, and signed to RCA. She started writing at 13. Her big debut his You Broke Me First, though how she follows that up remains to be seen.

Fresh This Month
November's selection emphasises the rather generic form this segment has grooved into, but at least Sam Smith and Celeste were worth the exposure, another spot for Tate McRae, and Billie Eilish's brother Finneas, doomed to be so described forever more.
