I am very glad that Danielle won. However good the other two are, and they certainly have a great future ahead of them, Danielle is not only the best all-round talent, but does have a very special quality, an enigmatic personality that Sheila Hancock mentioned a few weeks ago. I had not any intention of seeing the show before, especially on reading that - groan! groan! - ALW is writing some new songs for it (Why bother? It has a great score already), but I would be happy to see Danielle again.
Lauren showed that she would make a good Eliza Doolittle, if My Fair Lady was to have yet another revival, and I imagine she would be excellent in some of the Rodgers and Hammerstein shows.
I was sorry to see Jessica go a few weeks ago, although, like Lauren, she would not have made the ideal Dorothy. With her quirky personality, strong vocal and dance abilities, and Liza Minnelli looks, I am sure she will turn out to be a great musical star in the future.
Can anyone tell me the title of that lovely song that was sung by the ex-Dorothys last night? I don't remember Graham Norton telling us what it was, but then the noisy hysterical crowd may have made that impossible.
