莫-吉利根談《我的果醬》--"在我們可能最需要它的時候,它是完全的逃避主義"

每周都有兩組新的名人參加一系列超級大的音樂挑戰,因為莫氏將他們的歌唱能力、表演技巧和音樂知識推向了極限,他們要爭奪《我的果醬》冠軍。

但是,哪支隊伍將獲得勝利,他們將在 "不可能的卡拉OK之輪"、"啟動麥克風"、"黑膠倒計時"、"迪斯科猜字遊戲 "和 "對莫 "等遊戲中展現自己最好的歌聲和最精彩的動作,然後在史詩般的最終遊戲中面對強大的DoomBox,"殺了它,別噴它"。

誰能掌握節奏,誰又會被甩在後面?讓音樂大亂鬥開始吧!

這是我的果醬》(8 x 60)由環球國際製片廠的Monkey與環球電視替代工作室合作製作,供BBC One和BBC iPlayer使用。它是由凱特-菲利普斯以英國廣播公司娛樂委員會主任的身份委託製作的。Monkey的執行製片人是Will Macdonald和Andy Price。系列製作人是Isabel Forte。BBC的委託編輯是Pinki Chambers。

您如何描述 "那是我的果醬"?這個系列的概念是什麼?

我想把它描述為音樂挑戰與遊戲節目瑣事的完美混合體,所有這些都被塑造成一個節目,它總是很有趣,令人驚訝,而且完全充滿活力。

That's My Jam》在BBC One的黃金時段推出,對你意味着什麼?

英國電視的所有偉大人物都在這個時段。英國文化是周末電視。這是件大事。這是人們一周打卡的時間,這是他們的周末,他們會讓你為他們提供一點娛樂。因此,擁有BBC One的黃金時段是一件大事,BBC和環球公司信任我並希望我加入,我無法解釋這意味着什麼。

但是,你會想,好吧,現在我們只需要儘可能地製作最好的節目。讓我們為我們的觀眾做出真正令人驚奇的東西。我們都非常努力地工作,為他們提供儘可能好的表演。

是什麼讓That's My Jam如此獨特?

這是一個如此有趣的節目。我想獨特之處在於,在家裡的人也可以真正地一起玩,你會看到你最喜歡的一些名人做一些你以前從未見過的事情。他們把自己的音樂知識放在測試中,同時也推動了他們的表演能力。

That's My Jam上的遊戲非常簡單,但感覺非常大。我們有非常有趣的遊戲,如 "不要噴",讓我們的名人團隊互相對決,他們試圖猜出一首歌的歌詞--或者被水噴到臉上。

這可能是我做的第一個節目,每個人在整個過程中都很開心,就是不停地笑和好心情。

你認為觀眾從觀看《我的果醬》中會得到什麼?

我認為這個節目真的很酷,因為它是關於音樂的,而且音樂是永恆的。新一代人將會發現老派,同時,老派也會發現新派。我的意思是這是最酷的事情--人們可以在家裡與朋友和家人一起玩,一起測試他們的音樂知識。

在我們可能最需要它的時候,這是完全的逃避現實。

你最喜歡的《我的果醬》遊戲是什麼?

可能是Wheel of Impossible Karaoke - 它真正拉開了節目的序幕。我認為在這個系列中,有一些表演絕對是令人震驚的。這個節目最酷的地方是,你有真正的音樂家在玩這些遊戲。他們在玩這些表演遊戲時很開心,這讓家裡的觀眾看到了明星們的全新一面。

在你的系列節目中,名人團隊是相當史詩性的。人們可以期待在這個節目中看到誰?我們有什麼樣的團隊和名人?

哦,我們有一些驚人的名人,夥計。我們已經有了像唐尼-奧斯曼這樣的名字,他是最酷的人之一。還有其他的美國明星,比如傑森-德魯洛(Jason Derulo),但你也有來自英國的人,比如阿萊莎-迪克森(Alesha Dixon)和貝基-希爾(Becky Hill)。

這裡有很多人--我最喜歡的一些人是來自《銷售日落》的Chrishell和Mary。我無意中發現了 "銷售日落",我很喜歡它,所以見到他們也很奇妙。Salt N Pepa,哦,我的天哪!Salt N Pepa在節目中,他們是我最喜歡的嘉賓我對其他人感到抱歉,但我有機會見到Salt N Pepa,他們是如此的酷,如此的有趣!他們是我最喜歡的嘉賓。That's My Jam的代際性質意味着它不排斥任何人。每個人都有自己的東西。

遊戲也是跨音樂流派的,這使它感覺更有包容性。我認為人們會對湯姆-格林南感到驚訝,因為我們用地板上的鍵盤做了一個小音樂,他編了一首歌--這很不可思議。

這個節目是基于吉米-法倫的《那是我的果醬》。從他手中接過接力棒來主持這個英國版本,感覺如何?

這是一個巨大的榮譽。這是他的項目,所以很了不起--他傳授接力棒的事實是不可思議的,但我認為最酷的是,他真的很鼓勵我,告訴我 "用你自己的方式做"。他說我們有美國的版本,所以我們希望英國的版本是英國的版本。我們不希望你複製我們所做的。聽到這句話感覺真的很好,特別是從他那裡。

僅僅是見到他,與他交談,了解這個節目的內容,真的很酷。像吉米這樣的人,在這個遊戲中已經有很長一段時間了,他說他們尊重你的工作,並說 "按你的方式做吧,夥計!我想看看你是怎麼做的。我想看看你是怎麼做的',這真是不可思議。

你是如何在你的節目版本中打上自己的烙印的?

嗯,我自己是一個大的音樂迷。所以,即使是像我出來時的開場音樂,我也想參與其中。我和樂隊談過,你知道我們有亞當-布萊克斯通,他曾與賈斯汀-汀布萊克和德雷博士合作過,僅此而已。所以我告訴他們 "當我出來的時候,我想在音樂中出來,讓觀眾參與進來"。亞當和他的樂隊是如此出色的合作者。我也是一個觀眾互動的大粉絲--我想這是因為我有站立的背景,所以這是我想在我的版本中加入的成分。做節目時,我們如何能讓觀眾參與進來,讓在家的人感覺他們是節目的一部分。我總是試圖做到這一點。

我也非常幸運,因為我有機會出去看美國系列的拍攝,也有機會在洛杉磯錄製一個試點。因此,在拍攝該劇時,我對該劇有了很好的感覺,並有足夠的時間考慮如何以我自己的方式為該劇增色。整個團隊非常努力地工作,以創造出真正特別的東西。最酷的是我在劇中有一個我自己的遊戲,叫做Take on Mo。我有點氣喘吁吁,這有點變態。

在拍攝過程中,有什麼有趣的時刻讓你印象深刻嗎?

最有趣的時刻是Salt N Pepa玩Catch the Mic。我笑得停不下來。Salt N Pepa是那麼好,他們是那麼酷。他們真的讓我想起了我的家人,他們感覺就像我的兩個姑姑。但是他們的競爭很搞笑,他們是如此好的運動--我想人們真的會喜歡看他們的競爭性。Jason Derulo和Becky Hill也是如此--他們兩個也有很多有趣的時刻。但每個人都是來玩的,這使得一切都不同,我認為觀眾會喜歡每一秒鐘。

與吉米見面/合作是什麼感覺?你們在洛杉磯的時候,有什麼 "掐指一算 "的時刻嗎?

我想我的 "掐指一算 "的時刻就是第一次走到觀眾面前的時候。我們都為使這個節目成為可能而工作了這麼久,有了寫作和令人難以置信的製作人員--在那一刻,當我走出去說'嘿,那是我的果醬!'...哇。這是一個完整的時刻,因為從我拍攝試點到拍攝系列節目,簡直是一年的時間。

是的,我和吉米。他真的很酷,我們一起拍攝了一些有趣的小片段。他是一個偉大的即興表演者,而我喜歡即興表演。他也真的給了我他的時間--我想這是我真正欣賞的,因為他是一個非常忙碌的人。他告訴我的一些故事,他說:"那天晚上我出去吃飯,基努-里維斯給我送了一杯飲料,我也給他回了一杯,然後我們就一直在做這個有趣的事情......我想,他在和《黑客帝國》中的尼奧開玩笑,你知道嗎?然後他說'是的,我有一首和多莉-帕頓合作的新歌',我當時想'拉,那是喬琳娜!那太噁心了!'。那真是太變態了!"。但這就是令人驚訝的地方,這就是他的世界......你知道,我有幾個人是名人,我可以稱之為朋友,但像多莉-帕頓和基努-里維斯這樣的名字,那就不同了。

我想說我3、4歲的時候,我媽媽正在播放雷鬼音樂,她在星期天做飯的時候播放。所以她會把前一天晚上的豌豆泡好,然後她就放出真正的復興曲。格雷戈里-艾薩克斯、鮑勃-馬利、彼得-托什和桑切斯--我媽媽會播放所有這些東西。然後媽媽會開始播放摩城的經典曲目。星期天是做飯的日子,但我們也要做家務,所以,你知道,試圖做家務來聽《山不在高》...。當你不得不清理踢腳板的時候,這真的感覺不是那麼有趣。

你參加的第一場演出是什麼?

我不確定我的第一場演出,但我最喜歡的演出可能是與Jay Z和Kanye West的Watch the Throne巡演。那絕對是驚人的,我就在前面。我說的是就在前面的位置,Jay Z向我和我的朋友們致敬。對我來說,這是我見過的最好的巡演之一--能量、歌曲,我覺得我可以一直說下去,但它可能在那裡。這是我參加過的最喜歡的巡演之一。

另一個是去看碧昂絲。就在她做完超級碗之後,她宣布了巡演。那場演出是如此噁心,當我告訴他們時,人們不相信我,但我那天穿着一件紅色連帽衫,我坐在第一層,就在中間,她就像 "你在那裡!"。每個人都把你的手舉起來!'她指着我。我向你發誓,她指着我。我們周圍的每個人都舉起了手,然後我身後的一個女孩說'哦,我的上帝,她在指着我',我說'不不不。那就是我。我穿着一件鮮紅的連帽衫'。所以那一定是我最喜歡的演出--當碧昂絲指着我時。

那是一個很大的問題!你顯然也是Beyhive的一部分,這很好理解。

我認為碧昂絲很有魅力。我見過她,大概三次。她是這樣一個表演者的女人,就像戴安娜-羅斯和蒂娜-特納的風格。她是邪惡的人。我絕對是碧昂斯的一部分,百分之百的。

你買的第一張單曲/專輯是什麼?

我想第一張單曲可能是MC Hammer的Can't Touch This,我用一些零花錢買的磁帶。然後第一張專輯可能是德雷博士的《2001》,你知道的。我的姐妹們曾經聽過很多,但我記得我說:"媽媽,我可以買這個嗎?"她說:"好啊,那就買吧。"但她並不了解這些音樂,所以我就買了。

你認為誰是你的音樂英雄?

我的音樂英雄可能是鮑勃-馬利。他創造了毫不費力的、永恆的音樂,總是代表着很多東西,他只是,你知道,是那些經得起時間考驗的音樂家之一,跨越了許多不同的時代。


Each week two new teams of celebrities take on a host of super-sized musical challenges as Mo pushes their singing abilities, performance skills and musical knowledge to the limit as they compete to be declared That’s My Jam champions.

But which team will be victorious as they blast their best vocals and bust their best moves playing games such as The Wheel of Impossible Karaoke, Launch The Mic, The Vinyl Countdown, Disco Charades and Take on Mo before facing the mighty DoomBox in the epic end game, Slay It, Don’t Spray It!?

Who has the rhythm and who will be left with the blues? Let the musical mayhem begin!

That’s My Jam (8 x 60) is produced by Universal International Studios’ Monkey in partnership with Universal Television Alternative Studio for BBC One and BBC iPlayer. It was commissioned by Kate Phillips in her capacity as Director of Entertainment Commissioning at the BBC. The Executive Producers for Monkey are Will Macdonald and Andy Price. The Series Producer is Isabel Forte. The Commissioning Editor for the BBC is Pinki Chambers.

How would you describe That’s My Jam? What is the concept of the series?

I’d like to describe it as the perfect hybrid of musical challenges with game show trivia, all moulded into one show, which is always fun, surprising, and totally energetic.

What does it mean to you to have That’s My Jam launch in a primetime slot on BBC One?

All the greats of British TV have been in that slot. British culture is weekend television. It’s a big deal. It’s the time when people clock off for the week, this is their weekend and they’re letting you entertain them a little bit. So having that primetime slot on BBC One is a massive deal and the fact that BBC and Universal trusted me and wanted me to be on board, I can’t begin to explain how much that means.

But then you’re like ok, now we just need to make the best show possible. Let’s make something really amazing for our audience. We’ve all worked really hard to give them the best possible show we can.

What makes That’s My Jam so unique?

It’s such a fun show. I guess the unique point is that people at home can really play along too, and you’ll see some of your favourite celebrities do things you’ve never seen before. They’re putting their musical knowledge to the test but also pushing their performance abilities.

The games on That’s My Jam are so simple and yet feel so big. We have really fun games like Slay It Don’t Spray It, which has our celebrity teams go up against each other as they try to guess the lyrics of a song - or be sprayed in the face with water.

It’s probably the first show I’ve done where everyone’s just having a fun throughout. it’s just non-stop laughing and good vibes.

What do you think audiences will take from watching That’s My Jam?

I think the show is really cool because it’s all about music - and the music is timeless. A new generation will discover the old school and at the same time, the old school discovering the new school. I mean that’s the coolest thing – that people can play along at home with friends and family and test their musical knowledge together.

It’s complete escapism at a time when we probably need it the most.

What were your favourite That’s My Jam games?

Probably Wheel of Impossible Karaoke - it really kicks off the show. And I think there are some performances in the series that are absolutely mind blowing. The cool thing about this show is that you have actual musicians playing these games. They are having fun while playing these performance games and that allows audiences at home get to see a whole new side to the stars.

The celebrity teams are pretty epic in your series. Who can people look forward to seeing on the show? What kind of teams and celebrities have we got?

Oh we’ve got some amazing celebrities, man. We’ve got names like Donny Osmond on the show, who’s one of the coolest guys. You’ve got other massive US stars like Jason Derulo on the show, but then you have people from the UK like Alesha Dixon and Becky Hill.

There’s a great range of people - some of my favourites were Chrishell and Mary from Selling Sunset. I discovered Selling Sunset by accident, and I love it, so it was fantastic meeting them as well. Salt N Pepa, oh my gosh! Salt N Pepa on the show and they were my favourite guests! I’m sorry to anyone else, but I got to meet Salt N Pepa and they were so cool and so funny! The intergenerational nature of That’s My Jam means it doesn’t exclude anyone. There's something for everyone.

The games cross musical genres as well, which makes it feel even more inclusive. I think people are gonna be surprised by Tom Grennan because we do a little musical thing with a keyboard on the floor and he makes up a song - it’s incredible.

The show is based on Jimmy Fallon’s That’s My Jam. How does it feel for the baton to be passed on from him to host this UK version?

It’s a huge honour. This is his project, so it’s amazing - the fact that he’s passed the baton is incredible, but I think the coolest thing is that he was really encouraging and told me to 'do it your own way'. He said we have the American version and so we want the UK one to be the UK one. We don’t want you to replicate what we do. That felt really great to hear, especially from him.

And just meeting him, talking to him and knowing what the show’s about was really cool. To have someone like Jimmy, who has been in the game for such a long time, say they respect what you do and say 'do it your way man! I wanna see how you do it' is incredible.

How did you make your mark on your version of the show?

Well, I’m a big fan of music myself. So, even things like the opening music I come out to, I wanted to be involved in that. I talked to the band, you know we’ve got Adam Blackstone who’ve worked with Justin Timberlake and Dr. Dre to name a few. So I was telling them 'When I come out, I wanna come out to music and get the crowd involved'. Adam and his band were so brilliant to work with. I’m a big fan of audience interaction as well - I think it’s because I come from a stand-up background so that’s the kind of ingredient that I wanted to add into my version. Doing the show, how we can get the crowd involved and make people at home feel like they’re part of the show. I always try to do that.

I was also really lucky because I got to go out and watch the US series being filmed and got to record a pilot in LA as well. So I had a nice feel for the show by the time the series shoot came around and enough time to think about how I can add to the series in my own way. The whole team worked so hard to make something really special. And the coolest thing is I’ve got one of my own games in the show, which is called Take on Mo. I’m kinda gassed and that’s kinda sick.

Are there any funny moments from filming that stand out for you?

The funniest moment was Salt N Pepa playing Catch the Mic. I couldn’t stop laughing. Salt N Pepa are so nice and they’re so cool. They really remind me of my family, they feel like two of my aunties. But their competitiveness was hilarious and they’re such good sports - I think people are really going to enjoy seeing how competitive they are. Jason Derulo and Becky Hill as well - loads of funny moments with those two as well. But everyone just came to play which makes all the difference, I think the audience is going to love every second.

What was it like meeting / working with Jimmy? Did you have any pinch-me moments whilst you were out in LA?

I think my Pinch Me moment was honestly walking out to the audience for the first time. We all worked so long to make this show a possibility with the writing and the incredible production staff - and at that moment, when I got to walk out say 'Hey, That’s My Jam!'... wow. It was a full circle moment because it was literally a year from when I filmed the pilot to then filming the series.

And yeah, me and Jimmy. He's really cool, we got to film some little fun bits together. He’s a great improviser, and I love improvising. He really gave me his time as well - I think that’s what I really appreciated because he’s a really busy man. Some of the stories he was telling me, he was like 'I was out for dinner the other night man and Keanu Reeves sent me a drink, and I sent him one back, and it became this funny thing we kept doing...' And I’m like, man is busting jokes with Neo from The Matrix you know! And then he says 'Yeah, I’ve got this new song with Dolly Parton', I was like 'rah, that’s Jolene! That’s so sick!'. But that’s what’s amazing right, that’s his world... And you know, I have a few people who are celebs that I can call friends, but to drop names like Dolly Parton and Keanu Reeves, that’s just different.

I wanna say I'm 3 or 4 years old, and my mum is playing reggae, which she played on a Sunday while she cooked. So she’d be soaking the peas from the night before, and she’s just playing out real revival tunes. Gregory Isaacs, Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, and Sanchez - my mum would be playing all that stuff. And then mum would start playing the Motown classics. Sunday would be cooking day, but we had to do chores also so, you know, trying to do chores to Ain’t No Mountain High... It didn’t really feel all that fun when you’re having to clean skirting boards man.

What was the first gig you ever went to?

I’m not sure about my first one, but probably my favourite gig of all time was the Watch the Throne tour with Jay Z and Kanye West. That was just absolutely phenomenal, I was right at the front. Like I’m talking right at the front to the point where Jay Z was saluting me and my friends. For me it was one of the best tours I’ve ever seen - the energy, the songs, I feel like I could go on forever but it’s probably up there. One of my favourites that I’ve ever been to.

Another one was going to see Beyonce. Just after she did the Super Bowl, she announced the tour. That show was so sick, and people don’t believe me when I tell them this, but I was wearing a red hoodie that day, and I sat at level one, right bang in the middle, and she was like 'Yo you over there! Everybody put your hands up!' She pointed at me. I swear to you, she pointed at me. And everyone around us put their hands up and then one girl behind me went 'Oh my god, she’s pointing at me' I’m like 'No no no. That is me. I’m in a bright red hoodie.' So that’s got to be my favourite gig - when Beyonce pointed at me.

That’s a big one! You are also clearly part of the Beyhive which is good to know.

I think Beyonce is sensational. I’ve seen her, like, three times. She’s such a show woman of a performer, like Diana Ross, Tina Turner vibes. She's wicked man. I’m definitely part of the Beyhive a hundred percent.

What was the first single/album you ever bought?

I think the first single might be MC Hammer’s Can’t Touch This and I got that on a cassette with some pocket money. And then the first album might have been Dr. Dre’s 2001 you know. My sisters used to listen to a lot of it, but I remember being like “Mum can I buy this one” and she was like “Yeah cool, go on then” but she didn’t really know the music, so I got away with it.

Who would you consider your musical hero?

My musical hero has gotta probably be Bob Marley. The man made effortless, timeless music, always stood for a lot and he’s just, you know, one of those musicians that just stands the tests of time and crosses so many different generations.
