His rallying cry to the crowd at a concert is to ask them to wave their Israeli army dog tags in the air. One of his albums, The Light and the Shadow, has a muddy fist – that looks like a bloody one – on the cover, clutching a medallion Star of David. It’s selling well in Israel, and on one internet chart ranks above the Eurovision winner Dana International. Treaties signed in blood. ” Forget Eminem, this is more like hip-hop’s Sharon.

Between October 1964 and February 1969 she had eight top 10 singles, including three number ones, and won the Eurovision Song Contest with Puppet on a String, a song she used to loathe but now “doesn’t mind” to the extent that she has it as her mobile phone ring tone. What followed inspired Shaw’s most famous fan, Morrissey, to write the lyric: “Did that swift eclipse torture you?” If torture is too strong a word, certainly the fallout from the 1960s was not pleasant. Shaw refers to the 1970s as “the dark ages”. She recorded sporadically and without commercial success. Her marriage to designer Jeff Banks collapsed.

However, Las Vegas could be said to be his spiritual home. His management company, Unicorn Entertainment, is based there and Lord of the Dance, the critically acclaimed show he created after walking out on Riverdance in 1995, is now two years into a five-year run there, after four lucrative years in New York. The next year looks like being very busy for the Chicago-born Flatley, who shot to stardom when he performed at the 1994 Eurovision Song Contest in Dublin. However, taking on the Vegas high-rollers could be his biggest gamble yet.

I knew she had the makings of a great star. ”

After she’d signed to Decca, Lulu’s first single, Shout, reached number seven in the UK charts and she struck gold in the US with To Sir With Love, in 1967, which stayed at the top of the charts for five weeks. She’s had a Eurovision number one (in 1969 with Boom bang-a-bang, which was joint first with a song from the Netherlands), she’s been married to a pop star (Maurice Gibb) and a hairdresser-to-the-stars (John Frieda) and worked with music mega stars as diverse as David Bowie, Tina Turner and Andrew Lloyd Webber. She says it’s impossible to say who she enjoyed working with the most, though when she’s pushed she says it might be Bobby Womack (on 1993’s I’m Back For More). Last year’s single We’ve Got Tonight, with Ronan Keating, was another highlight, as was playing New York with her good friend Elton John in 1999. “All these people came back stage after the show, actress Ellen Barkin said: ‘Wow, how have you been? You don’t visit enough!’”

Surprisingly she doesn’t think she has influenced any younger UK stars, and doesn’t see herself as a role model. “People like Beverley Knight did it without me,” she says.
