Chris - I was very surprised to see him in the bottom two. His performance was quite good. He seems like such a sweet chap too!!
Ben - Not very good. Should have been in the bottom two.
Seamus - he sang 'Being Alive' quite well to be fair, but he is portrayed as being very smug. Editing......!!!
Anthony - huge improvement on last week, although he lacked presence.
Lewis - very good.
Craig - better than last week but I find his performances a bit weedy.
Daniel - very good, but I am biased because I fancy him rotten.
Kieth - great voice but I have to agree re diction. SHouldn't be too hard to overcome though. I am expecting great things from this chap at some point.
Lee - excellent.
Rob - Very good. Rob really commands the stage! I'm very impressed with him.

M George - you are a much kinder person than I am. Now I feel a bit guilty about all the teeth stuff.
I suspect that our judgements of the Josephs say as much about us as they do about the Josephs. For example, I like Anthony, but I think he appeals to mothers and certain teenage girls (I'm the former not the latter) because he seems so healthy and balanced and like he's having a blast, whereas some of the guys that do nothing for me obviously have another sort of appeal. Instead of Rorshak tests or inkblots they should do Joseph psychological testing - I think they may be these blank canvases upon which we impose our personalities, etc.
BTW, a funny article by Barbara Ellen in the Observer today about the show. I'll try to find a link.

Mmmm 'there is something rotten in the state of Denmark'. I think that Daniel and Lee are by far the best in the show. I would be amazed if one of them didnt win...but then they are seasoned professionals. I also didn't buy the whole Johndeep story, about his family not knowing about him singing or, indeed, heard him sing....he was a semi finalist last Oct in the Radio 2 Voice of Musical theatre in Cardiff - plenty of opportunity there to invite your parents along to the New Theatre, Cardiff to hear you warble!! So, for that reason, I was not sorry to see him go on Saturday - that and the fact that he murdered his number.
There are somethings in this show that are just too manufactured.

I wouldn't read anything into that. Lee can more than hold his own as a singer so I suspect the backing singer was there for effect rather than enhancement.

That's rather a good article actually.
