In the UK today, the Hawaii show was finally aired on Channel 4. However, because it was shown in the daytime, a LOT of it had been cut and edited.

To start with, the show used different camera angles throughout showing more shots of the audience and better quality shots. Additionally, the quick change which is shown just before Alright was extended. Instead of cutting to the intro of the song, we see Janet walk from her quick change, hear the song intro begin whilst she continues to walk to the left hand side of the stage. As she reaches her entry point backstage, it cuts to the front of stage view as Janet walks on.

Many of the camera angles which were used in this airing will also be used on the DVD.

The songs which were cut from the show were: YOU AIN’T RIGHT, COME BACK TO ME, LET’S WAIT AWHILE, AGAIN, MISS YOU MUCH, WHEN I THINK OF YOU, SON OF A GUN, WOULD YOU MIND and SOMEONE TO CALL MY LOVER.

This made the show seem disjointed throughout and after one ad break, there seemed to be a technical error as they repeated ALL FOR YOU. After this, they cut straight to IF, making it look as if someone had made a big muck up! Don’t worry – a letter of complaint is already in the post!! (Just kidding)
