You figure out what you’re doing. You figure out what the characters are.” And success had bred confidence. “The panel came back in like they were (coming) off a hit record,” says executive producer Dave Stewart, of Eurythmics fame. “I think that’s the thing that’s been so heartening about this show: several [contestants] have gotten publishing deals and cuts with other artists,” Morrissey says. – Read more at Variety
