I’m A Celebrity news: How did Snoochie Shy’s lack of knowledge come to light?

On last night’s episode of I’m A Celebrity, Louise and Richard chatted about music with Snoochie.

“What is your favorite type of music? Snoochie asked Louise and Richard as they helped with laundry.

“I like rock,” replied Richard Madeley, citing the Beatles as one of his favorites. “Everything is very dated. I thought the Eagles were an amazing group.

“WHO?” Snoochie Shy asked, not in reference to the legendary ’60s band.

“I don’t know who they are,” Snoochie said when Richard repeated himself.

Richard asked Snoochie Shy if she’d heard of one of the band’s most iconic songs – Hotel California – but the DJ shook his head.

“I know who the Beatles are, obviously,” Snoochie Shy said, but Louise and Richard were in shock.

What were the reactions of Richard and Louise?

Snoochie then said that if Richard sang a song the Eagles had sung, she could find out who they are. Richard Madeley and Louise Minchin then launched into a short rendition of Hotel California.

The six-and-a-half-minute song was released in 1977 and won a Grammy for Record of the Year in 1978.

Snoochie initially didn’t recognize the song, but when Richard started singing the chorus, it clicked.

“Oh, yeah, I know that,” she said.

Snoochie later admitted that she didn’t know Don McLean’s song American Pie either. She thought Richard was talking about the 1999 film.

What did I’m A Celebrity fans say about Snoochie Shy?

Louise and Richard were fascinated by the generational gap between them and Snoochie. However, I’m A Celebrity viewers were unimpressed with the DJ’s lack of “classic” musical knowledge.

“Snoochie Shy is almost 30 years old. Not knowing who the Eagles are is not a generation gap. It’s just a knowledge gap. And for a DJ, that’s a pretty small gap,” one viewer tweeted.

“Isn’t Snoochie a radio DJ?” asked another I’m A Celebrity fan. “Shouldn’t she know the Eagles etc. She’s not that young.”

“I’m the same age as Snoochie Shy and I’m not a radio DJ and I know who the Eagles are,” a third viewer said.

One viewer, however, took Snoochie’s side.

“People who say Snoochie don’t know who the Eagles are but they don’t know who Linkin Park or Incubus are. It’s all relative! they wrote.
