Same Difference: 'We R One'

By
Same Difference: 'We R One'
Released on Monday, Nov 24 2008

Why did ITV even bother commissioning Britannia High when they had the British answer to High School Musical on their doorstep? Sean and Sarah Smith, who transformed from drama school irritants to lovable underdogs on last year's X Factor, have all the ingredients to match the success of Efron, Hudgens and co: positive mental attitudes, gleaming smiles and an appetite for a killer key change.

What their debut single lacks in depth, it certainly makes up for in chutzpah. The brother/sister duo may not be the strongest singers in the world, but few acts could pull off lyrics like: "Together! Together! Baby we "r" one!" and sound like they actually mean it. Starting off like an Abba piano ballad before bursting into a ticker tape crescendo of sticky pop goodness, this is as subtle as a poke in the eye with a frying pan. The surprising result is one of the finest spin-off releases in the history of The X Factor.
