Sproule is the first serious Irish candidate for the new-Norah-Jones mantle: the 21-year-old singer claims Tom Waits and Van Morrison as the inspiration for her intimate, open-hearted style, but it’s hard to detect them in an album whose chief virtue is its summery girlishness. Songs sound like diary entries: “You’re not the first and you won’t be the last,” she insists in The Deal, her wobbly soprano suggesting that the male in question is actually very much the first.

Now she has a raft of other engagements to look forward to, including returning to Manchester in two weeks’ time to take part in Granada’s final auditions for the prime-time TV show, Stars in Their Eyes. She applied last year to sing as Katie Melua and will sing her hit song, The Closest Thing to Crazy. Cory, a pupil at Whitehaven School, has also been asked to star in the British finals of this year’s Junior Eurovision in September. Granada bosses were so impressed with Cory, who won the competition last year and went on to come second in the grand final in Norway, that they want to be involved in the show, which is screened live. She also has to find time to jet to Croatia where she has been invited to sing a duet – and record a song – with the 2003 Junior Eurovision winner Dino, who has been inundated with requests to team up with Cory.

A lesson from outer spacePrinceton University The Daily Princeton…
According to Montemarano, the teleconference, which was also broadcast on TigerTV via the local Patriot cable company, experienced connection problems because of the sheer number of relays that had to be made. "Part of the reason for today’s delay was because of a problem with the video transmission from the Russian side," Montemarano said. "We had to get the U. side to send signals to Russian command, which relayed to Eurovision and then to Patriot. When you have lots of hand offs, different problems come up. " A test was conducted on Monday for the teleconference, and no signal was received, which caused the organizers to warn the audience beforehand that the teleconference might not be successful.
