ALW Storms Off?!

He definitely stormed off but I'm wondering what kind of spin they'll put on it. The only reason I want to watch it again next week is to see what diabolical thing will happen next! It's entertainment in itself!

They carefully lead 'us' by the hand to the professional actor they want to get the role, sending talented people home each week and carefully surrounding their desired winner with a couple of people they know the audience won't go for. Then cue them to start whooping and cheering about the victory for the poor actor who worked in a call centre (probably only for a week) telling us how well we've done, and how brilliant our choice has been. People's Maria, People's Joseph blah blah blah. It's a great, inspiring story to spin, but isn't the great journey that the people, the voters think it is. ALW storming off like that (yes, as someone pointed out, in an edited show) is to make us think we've had an impact on him, and it's us who've made him angry. All part of the charade.
This show is not meant for us who can see through all the bull***t.

He angered quite a few last week getting rid of fran and then the public angered him this week.how amusing.
I think its clear he wanted rid of ashley this week, he shouldve done that when he had the chance.
oh the irony if ashley wins, think of the strop he would have then

Keisha has been bottom 2 before
Niamh was given some quite poor feedback today (plus being on first, people can forget you)
Neither of them is Nancy for me - or for the majority of people on here from what I have read.
He has made comments on the other series about the public getting it wrong - so that was just bluster.
Having just managed to watch the results show, I thought that Ashley did herself no favours by being quite some forceful in punching the air and shouting out Yes, Yes, Yes as she ran past Keisha. That showed a very negative side to her. I know she was relieved (as well she should be after what was her worst performance)
I would really love to see the voting figures - there is all this talk about there not being a front runner - but they all know who is coming top each week (by they I mean the people running the show)
ALW really is a poor actor - and he didn't show any real anger
It is part of the 'drama' IMHO

And he mentioned that the girls would be singing pop songs throughout the evening. Well why? They were all given highly forgettable numbers, that had nothing to do whatsoever with musical theatre, but more about screeching loudly. They were of no use at all to the performers, who were often berated for not revealing their acting ability. What a joke! How on earth can any sense of drama come across with such dreary rubbish? They should be given genuine show songs. That would really sort out the dead wood from the genuine article. And for heaven's sake, get rid of the mincing dancers, who only cause a distraction, and are probably more of a burden to the girls. And, while we're at it, shoot the hairdresser for the crime committed on Ashley, unless she perpetrated the horror on herself.
Keisha has a strong voice, and is a great singer, but would not make a suitable Nancy, and I suspect that the viewers are actually wiser about that than ALW himself, although I am glad that he offered to help her in any way he can. I think her career really lies in cabaret and recordings, rather than in musicals.
I was very glad that at last some recognition was given to Georgia Brown, for whom the role of Nancy was written, and was still the best of the lot, although I think that Barbara Windsor herself would have made a suitable Nancy years ago. She was hilarious in Lionel Bart's Fings Aint Wot They Use To Be.
Although all the girls have made some improvement, the only one who comes anywhere near getting it right is Jodie, with star quality in spades. Oliver is not a show that I am very keen on, as I find the score rather nauseous, but I would gladly see anything in which she appears.
Denise V O is very pretty, but her flat EastEnders voice really grates more and more every week, and, with her limited experience, I wonder if it is right that she is on the panel. As someone pointed out on one of these threads, a more suitable judge would be Elaine Paige.
It is interesting to note that, in spite of all the hype with the Marias, poor Connie Fisher's career seems to have spiralled taken a downwards spiral. That should tell us something about the whole project. Since he made an even greater fortune out of her, I wonder if ALW is offering her any help.
