The ATOMIC singer, 58, accepts her talents lie more in her songwriting ability and her stage presence than her singing skills - factors she knows would render her an inappropriate contestant on the hit programme.
She says, "Blondie would never pass a star search. The way I approach what I do is from a point of internal drive.
"I'm not a technical singer. My thing is about attitude.
"I've always worked as an ensemble. I'd be a complete failure on a show like that."14/04/2004 20:55
