To bring some fun and light to these sad and tough times, there will be loads of silly facts about the songs, and the songs will all have a positive or uplifting feel to them. The nature of this live challenge makes it very likely there will be some 'car crash' moments. For more information visit Master J on Facebook. [Repeated Thursday 3.30am.]
