Natalie & Dannii's Magic Carpet Ride

A couple of days ago I wrote a flashback post about Young Talent Time's Natalie Miller. Since then I've spent a lot of time watching old clips on Youtube and stumbled across one of the show's finest moments. Watch in awe as Natalie belts out an amazing rendition of Limahl's "Neverending Story", while riding a magic carpet around Australia with Dannii (and Greg) in tow. This shit is almost too fabulous for words. Natalie's performance is adorable and the zero budget special effects will leave you stunned and amazed. However, it's left to Dannii to steal the show. Her finger point at 0:25 minutes cracks me up every time and the bored look on her face is priceless. She should have been grateful. If nothing else, taking a back seat to Natalie for a couple of minutes stood her in good stead for spending the rest of her career in Kylie's shadow. Enjoy one of the true highlights of Australian television!

This is the best Dannii's ever sounded!! (And she only sings backup!)

Love the hand wave at 1:18 in, too. Truly stunning.

Is that one of the planets from Blake's 7? I'm pretty sure Mariah Carey got her love of butterfly's from 1:08.

What's up with all the matching plaids?

Oh look they made the kids clothes out of the curtains from the TV station cafeteria. That's so sweet.

I love the bit around 1min where it slowly zooms in and Dannii smiles, then she pulls this look on her face that screams "come fuck me!"

Fierce! Not only does it display Dannii's show stealing talent and generosity in letting lesser talents and the talentless take the spotlight that should be by rights firmly centred on her infamous WMDD's, we can now cunfurmz the inspiration for nafensayz sweeping brush hairdo!

Not about Natalie, but another YTTer - Lorena Novoa did a couple of tracks on the self titled 2004 album by Low Frequency Occupation, alongside an uncredited (except in very small print) "C. Anu". It's not especially good but worth noting for 2000s dance singles of former YTT stars...

The stylist on this show obviously had a bigger budget than Kids Incorporated...LOL!
