Yo yo, ma! (my eScala post)

When I was reading my Google Reader feeds on my mobile phone last night, I ran across this EPL Talk post which included a promotional video for this season's football (soccer) coverage on Sky Sports. However, I couldn't watch the video until this morning. Phrase such as "the perfect 10" end up with a slightly different meaning.

In an attempt to learn more about eScala, I viewed this YouTube video from "Britain's Got Talent."

As you can see, even Simon Cowell likes them.

Back on June 5, when I was on vacation (in Huntsville of all places), Dana Franks wrote this about eScala:

The best pure talent of the show was probably this four-woman act called [eScala]. Three of them played electric violin, while the fourth played electric cello. They were all incredibly hot, and they’ve supposedly already signed with Cowell.

But it was another act that caught Dana's eye:

Because this is my blog and I’m a bit of a girl who likes eye candy, here’s the guy I called “the cute Scottish plumber”. His semi performance was better than in the finals, so you get that. Andrew Muir, come over and marry me and try out for American Idol. I think you’re much better than that cheesy David Cook bloke. And you can fix my plumbing.

…..what? My sink’s got a leak. My KITCHEN sink. What did y’all think I was talking about, pervs?

But let's get back to eScala. (Hey, THIS is MY blog.) Here are their biographies:
