I think Danielle will be the winner though.

I would like Lauren to win. I've seen her perform before and she really is fantastic, and deserves a West End big-break like this. Allie- she's done 8 shows a week before, I'm sure she could handle it a lot better than many of the others! I'd also be quite happy for Danielle to win.
I think the most likely winners are Danielle and Stephanie. I think the Lord will favour them in sing-offs against any of the others.
I have to agree with Allie and Scarlet o'Hara, that its such a shame they're casting The Wizard of Oz! I can't see it being a big hit to be honest, when there are so many other fantastic shows on in the West End, particularly with Wicked doing so well. The popilarity of ALW's reality shows is waning as well, so I doubt it will be particularly successful. I think the focus is more likely to be on what the runners-up do and what the winner does next, rather than the Wizard of Oz itself.
I like Lauren and think she is a good all round performer and seems like a lovely girl. However, I hope she doesn't win as the whole point of the show (aside from publicity for ALW) is to discover new talent and to give girls who otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity a chance to make it on the WE stage. Lauren probably would have stood a good chance of getting the job had she auditioned in the conventional way as she has already had professional training and has got experience. I just don't see the point of 10 weeks of live shows if someone experienced wins. Apart from this I think she looks to old for the part and I agree with the judges (can't remember who said it) in that she comes across as too knowing and mature. I also think she is lacking in that something special and is too polished.
I don't think the fact that she was in the bottom two has anything to do with her VT as Emilie came across much worse in hers and the public seem to be behind her.
I'm really not enjoying this show as much as the others and if any of the other good performers go this week then I think I'll lose interest. The girls are nowhere near as talented or as interesting as the Nancy's or Maria's and I think they are far too young to be put through so much stress and it is showing.

However, many of the previous contestants have had professional training and wealths of professional theatre experience before going for their shows. Connie trained (Mountview?) then went into office work - the BBC, in their infinite wisdom, chose to ignore the training element and instead shone the light on bringing someone completely new into the West End. I'm not sure about Jodie's history pre-IDA.
Lee actually had to leave the cast of Phantom Of The Opera in London to go for Any Dream Will Do. So, the idea of the show to cast a "complete unknown" is unfortunately a horse which has long bolted.

Yes I noticed that too!

It must not be Emilie.
But I don't feel terribly strongly about most of the others & feel they would probably all be OK in different ways. I'd like to hear them do more spoken acting though, as I think the spoken voice & accent is important and a few of them have quite strong natural dialects. I'm sure it was mostly Jessie's attempts at Cockney that were her downfall in IDA!

I would like it to be Sohie who wins, she is my favourite!!
Stephanie is my second favourite
