Tonight we let the music do the talking. We featured some of the artists who have come into the programme or have been interviewed down the line. These were Denyse Donnell, Justine Marie Mead and Lisa Harman. Next week she has two performances at the Blackpool winter gardens at the World Dancing Championships.
