He'll be in the Miley slot either 2022 or, more likely, 2023. From guest to owning it outright.

Dude's a phenom and would clean up after a legend passes through. He's essentially already in the same lineage of camp, comedy and crowd-pleasing anthems, á la Lionel, Diana, Dolly and Barry.

Got all the elements for a raunchy, fun Sunday afternoon hoedown — would draw an enormous crowd.

Does my nut in to think that Kylie-Miley 2019 was also the Nas-ster's debut UK performance.

That was his first UK gig? That’s sick. Maybe Glastonbury would be on the cards for him in the future then. I have him down as a R&L act but it’s good if Glasto got him first.

Still not strong enough as a live act to warrant headliner status, in my opinion. She's there because of popularity.

Since when has being a strong live act been the reason acts make it to headliner? It’s popularity and always has been, lest we wouldn’t have had Sheeran up there with a guitar and a loop pedal headlining the whole thing to a mammoth crowd.

When I see her live footage I can’t help but feel the deck is stacked against her for her G2022 set.

Her good live shows seem to be energised by a devoted fan base. She’s already made a bollocks of one Glastonbury set and now she’ll be adding a bunch of ballads from a less-popular album and playing them in front of a larger, less-partisan crowd.

There’s no doubting she’s a headliner at this point in time but I can’t see it being one for the ages, and I predict it’ll be looked back on by both festival and artist as merely a box ticked.

You’d think this forum would have learned not to write off a headliner’s performance in advance. I’ve certainly learned that lesson over the last few years. Let’s see what Billie does, but I suspect there’s a good chance she absolutely kills it.

People had written off her 2nd album after some of the singles but it ended up being really good. She strikes me as the type of person you don’t write off or underestimate.
