Apologies to Four Weddings

I am listening to the radio broadcast of the NRJ Music Awards on the radio. Phil Collins is mangling the French language, but I am so proud of him for speaking French at all. What happens at concerts where the singer doesn't speak the language? Do they just drop the between-song banter, do they do it in their native language and ignore the fact that the crowd probably doesn't understand, or is there someone there to translate?

Mariah Carey is also at the awards. You may ask what I think of her. Unfortunately there I run out of words. Perhaps you will forgive me if I turn from my own feelings to those of another splendid bugger: S.T. Coleridge. This is actually what I want to say:

"Swans sing before they die. It would be no bad thing if certain persons died before they sang."
