Birmingham Boulevard

It was recently reported in the news that Birmingham is to get it’s very own equivalent to Hollywood Boulevard’s “Walk of Fame”, with Ozzy Osbourne to be the first star. Ozzy’s an obvious choice, but who else? Well now you can help decide! The Brum Blog has reported a link to the Birmingham Walk of Stars website, where you can cast your vote!

How about Sutton Coldfieldian Natalie Powers, one of the band members from this year’s craptastic Eurovision entry Scooch (“we’re flyyyyyyyying the flag!” *groan*)?

    I was surprised about Lenny Henry (seeing as he’s from Dudley) but then I read the criteria:

    “The criteria for nomination is the star(s) must have made a recognisable impact in their specialist category, performed, played or attended one of Birmingham’s major venues, including the International Convention Centre (ICC), National Indoor Arena (NIA), Symphony Hall and Brindleyplace or be originally from the Midlands area.”

    hang on, wind back: attended????

    I seem to have forgotten context (where’s the edit link when I need one?) – I was referring to the list on the Walk of Stars site.

    Hmm, yeah that “attended” clause is a bit strange, but surely him being from Dudley is enough (“…or be originally from the Midlands area”)? :)
