A long way ahead of the competition was Rebecca Newman at Leeds – well done Rebecca. Second place went to Laura Wright, closely followed by Kerry Ellis. Click here to see the entire Favourite Alfie Boe Come What May playlist.
Of course, Alfie also sings this as a solo song but I prefer it as a duet and have done since I first saw the movie from which it is taken, Moulin Rouge, one of my favourite films. For those who are not familiar, Come What May is the only original song to feature in Baz Luhrman’s (another Alfie connection) musical reworking of La Boheme and is the big love song between Ewan McGregor and Nicole Kidman:
Ewan McGregor does a good job here – fun fact of the day, he appeared on the West End stage ten years ago in Guys and Dolls and was excellent. Whenever I hear Luck Be A Lady, I always think of Ewan in that production.
