Jim Bailey IS Judy Garland.

After a cancelled run at the Shaw Theatre, Jim Bailey has finally hit London.
His tribute to Judy Garland is just something out of this world.
Within seconds of him strutting on stage you are encased in a Judy Garland concert- the full works -replica costumes, the mannerisms, the stories-all perfect.
The Leicester Square Theatre is a great venue for this performance a sit kind of feels like a small Las Vegas cabaret room.
Mt Bailey has a whole line up of ladies he does regularly, from Liza to Barbra to Peggy Lee. It is his Judy that has swept the board every time.

He has performed a 30 minute set with Liza at Carnegie Hall-where else.

This London season is just Judy and runs until this Sunday June 13th at 8pm- there's another Sunday show for you folks!
Go! -you will not be disappointed.

He looks more like Judy Garland than Judy Garland did. A colleague of mine says her husband is a Jim Bailey fan... she doesn't appear to be worried.

Oh. My. God. That's completely creepy, but in a wonderful, wonderful way.

You must try and go. It is an amazing 2hrs.

He never steps out of being Judy for 1 second. He will spend most of the day as her in preparation fro the evenings performance.

In this clip he sings 'I'm Still Here' from 'Follies'.
This is the only song he does that Judy Garland never sang once.
I'm sure if she had lived longer it could have become her anthem, maybe more so than 'Over The Rainbow'.
