Paloma’s rendition of ‘World In Union’ is not enhancing fans' Rugby World Cup experience.
Paloma Faith’s rendition of Rugby World Cup theme ‘World In Union’ has annoyed ITV viewers so much that a petition has been launched pleading with the channel to remove her version of the song. Some have called Faith’s version ‘tone deaf’, while others say it’s ‘truly awful’ and now over 7,000 people have signed the online petition.
There’s a petition to remove Paloma Fait’s version of ‘World in Union’.
The petition on change.org reads, ‘Already sick of Paloma Faith's awful rendition of "World In Union"? Worried that it might ruin your Rugby World Cup? Then sign this petition and let ITV know your thoughts!’
Gibraltar is, of course, a British territory on the Spanish mainland, and Faith took to Twitter to apologise for the mistake.
Paloma Faith has had to apologise after greeting fans in Gibraltar by saying “Hola Espana”, despite the peninsular being a British territory, going on to say “It’s nice to be in a place that’s half English and half Spanish”.
Faith – who is herself half-English and half-Spanish – made the faux pas when she appeared at the Gibraltar Music Festival on Saturday (September 10th). Gibraltar has been under British control since the Treaty of Utrecht in 1713, and has been a major bone of contention in Anglo-Spanish relations ever since.

Mick and Fred have been friends lifelong friends, now both reaching their more senior years they find themselves wanting very different things in their immediate life. Fred's daughter Lena feels her dad is in need of a health check and some R&R so she books them into a luxury spa in the beautiful Swiss mountains.
Whilst Mick feels the pressure to finish his latest screenplay, Fred on the other hand, much to his daughters dismay, has no desire to return to his career scoring and conducting music. Whilst visiting the retreat, both men meet many interesting characters and find themselves in a retrospective mood only to be rejuvenated by the experience in more than one way.
The film score features contributions by many celebrated artists but perhaps the most poignant from Mark Kozelek AKA Sun Kil Moon, Kozelek also makes a cameo appearance in the film. Paloma Faith also has a song on the film and makes a cameo. Youth will open in US cinemas December 4, 2015
The Welsh singer was replaced as a judge on the talent show earlier this month.
Danny Cohen, the BBC’s Director of television has said he feels ‘sorry’ that Tom Jones was upset after the singer was dropped as a judge on talent ‘The Voice’ earlier this month. Following his axing Jones had hit out at the BBC in a Facebook post, saying he had been dropped from the show without ‘conversation or consultation’ by the BBC.

Some hopefuls for the BBC reality show had their dreams shattered on Monday, due to an unfortunate IT mishap.
The 500 remaining contestants for BBC series ‘The Voice’ thought that their talent show dreams were well and truly over on Monday, when they all received an email message telling them they hadn't made the cut. According to The Mirror, the email was mistakenly sent out to all 500 of the show’s hopefuls instead of the 300 who were actually being axed from the competition.
Boy George is one of the new judges for ‘The Voice’s’ sixth season.
The newspaper reports that BBC IT experts released the error a few hours after the emails were sent meaning bosses were forced to ‘frantically ring round some 200 contestants’ to let them know they still had a place in the competition.
The veteran singer will not be returning to the BBC talent show for its fifth season.

Paloma Faith takes Rita Ora's already-vacated spot; Sir Tom dropped in favour of Boy George for series five in 2016.
The British edition of ‘The Voice’ has revealed its line-up of judges for the upcoming fifth season, with one surprise change in store. As has been widely tipped, Paloma Faith will be taking up the vacant seat left by Rita Ora, who defected to ITV’s ‘The X Factor’ earlier this year.
But, despite recently saying how much he was looking forward to coming back for another season, the legendary Welsh crooner Sir Tom Jones has been axed from the BBC show to be replaced with Culture Club singer Boy George.

Lisanne Beck (47) and Simon Murphy (48) of Swansea were attending a BBC Radio 2 gig in Hyde Park in the capital on September 14th 2014, at which Paloma Faith, Chrissie Hynde, Blondie and ELO were performing, when they began behaving indecently and indulged in oral sex in full view of the crowded family event.

First Paloma Faith, then FKA Twigs and now it's Nicole Scherzinger who joins the running to replace Rita Ora on 'The Voice'.
Nicole Scherzinger could be about to return to the world of TV talent shows, as the former ‘X-Factor’ judge has been named as the latest frontrunner to replace Rita Ora on 'The Voice’.

First it was Paloma Faith, but now FKA Twigs is the new favourite to join ‘The Voice’s’ judging panel.
Another day and another name joins to race to become Britain’s next talent show judge. This time it’s singer FKA Twigs, who’s found herself as the hot new favourite to replace Rita Ora on ‘The Voice’, following the 'Poison' singer's move to the 'X-Factor'.
Will it be FKA Twigs who takes over from Rita Ora on ‘The Voice’?
According to The Daily Star, producers over at ‘The Voice’ want the cool and quirky singer to join next season’s judging panel and bring more musical credibility to the show. "Rita may have brought glamour to 'The Voice' but she wasn't too clued up on musical knowledge,” a source told the newspaper.

With Rita Ora having just jumped ship to the ‘X-Factor’, BBC talent show ‘The Voice’ has found itself one judge down ahead of its sixth season.

The 33-year-old singer recently claimed she won't get the chance to sing the new Bond soundtrack because she has been outspoken about wanting the role.
It is no secret that Paloma Faith has voiced her desire to hopefully sing the next James Bond soundtrack, but now the British songstress thinks being outspoken about the wanting the opportunity may have "messed up" her chances.

The British duo have done well both in Britain and the States throughout 2014, and their huge sales were recognised on Wednesday's glitzy awards ceremony.
Ed Sheeran and Sam Smith were the big winners at the Brit Awards. The annual music industry spectacular rewarded the two biggest-selling artists of last year by bestowing two trophies on each on Wednesday night (February 25th).
Sheeran won the two biggest prizes for which he was nominated – those of British Male Solo Artist and Best British Album for his sophomore record X. He beat four other UK Number 1 albums to do so – rival Smith’s In The Lonely Hour, Royal Blood’s self-titled debut, indie stars Alt-J’s This Is All Yours and George Ezra’s slow-burning debut Wanted On Voyage.

Sienna Miller is not only everywhere at LFW, she's also been the next to share a smooch with the model Cara Delevingne.
Sienna Miller has made sure that everyone knows she's attended this year's London Fashion Week after she's been snapped left, right and centre at the heart of the style and action.
Sienna Caught The Pap's Attention In Her Furry Shrug.
Rocking a deep jade Burberry Prorsum shrug, Sienna arrived at the fashion house's Monday (16 Sept) show. Sienna's ties with the British fashion brand run deeper than her wardrobe: she's been the face of the brand this season, appearing in campaigns with her fiancé and the father of her daughter, Tom Sturridge.

This year’s Brit Awards nominations look as though they were concocted by a group of strangers, with wildly different cultural backgrounds, on a drunken night out. Is this a sign that the mainstream music world is finally starting to accept that it’s becoming more and more acceptable to have diverse musical tastes? Or are the organisers of the BRITS simply trying to spark controversy? have they lost the plot? Or is this an honest reflection of the mindset of a 2013 British music buying public? Let’s take a look at the evidence, and scrutinise some of the more baffling categories…
British Female Solo Artist Nominees – One of the more sensitive and contentious issues, here, in the British female solo artist category. Of the five nominees, only four of them were alive this year. We understand that Amy Winehouse has a lasting legacy in British pop music. We understand that she was – and, in many ways remains - a tour de force. But, for the sake of the awards, we simply have to ask, at the risk of sounding flippant, what has Amy Winehouse done for British music in the last 12 months? Sadly, nothing. Her posthumous album (released in December 2011, we should add), Lioness: Hidden Treasures was politely and quietly denounced for being little more than cuttings from the studio floor. We simply can’t get our heads around her inclusion on this list. With Bat For Lashes throw in as the ‘alternative’ wild card, to lend a touch of outsider cool to the category, it’s between Emeli Sande, Paloma Faith and Jessie Ware to catch this one, we reckon.
