"This Is It" was a hit for Melba Moore in the 1976 but truly became an international anthem when the duchess of dance (ie. Dannii Minogue) covered the song in the early 1990s. Dannii's version remains one of her brightest pop moments and one of her biggest hits in Australia. As far as I'm concerned, Dannii's interpretation is absolute perfection. Holidannii's voice sounds amazing, the production is fabulous, Dannii's hair looks fierce in the video and the dance routine is legendary. Obviously, the stunning success of Dannii's version inspired the release (or possibly re-release) of Ruth Campbell's craptastic dance version in 1997. If anyone has any information about Ruth, please let me know because this is the first I've heard of her. If "This Is It" is any indication, Ruth is probably cleaning toilets now or working at McDonalds. Her version is great fun but nowhere near as fabulous as Dannii's. I hope you enjoy it!
