Andrew is clearly gunning for the older girls, he  was rude again. He is a nasty mean spirited man.

Sam's rendition of defying gravity was pitiful, I have seen Wicked, and she was awful. She was behind the beat and flat in several places, but of course the chosen one can not be criticised. Jesse was lack lustre, ditto Niamh. Jodie and  Rachel are the only two left capable of doing this role.

I think John B is getting fed up of some of the favourtism and the blatantly stupid comments of the other judges, he looked fed up with them and their antics. He is losing his sparkle and I think its because he is fed up with the silly games they are playing and  he wants to be honest, I liked how he stuck up for Jodie was ALW was so rude about her being a big girl.

Does Oxford Simon like anyone? How about Stephanie D'Abruzzo from Avenue Q? I would like to see you criticise her.

My preferred Nancy is Jodie

I know some people don't like her - but she is spot on for my view of the role of Nancy

(and I am not sure why you quoted that particular bit which was by an unidentifiable guest and then asked who I liked...)

Have you seen Jessie's dance routine tonight, lol. She really can't dance,  tongue.gif  Could it be any more obvious?

They didn't do her any favours by repeatedly showing that clip of her falling over in rehearsal either...although it was very funny wink.gif

Unfortunately I was at work last night when the show was on and only caught bits of it when I wasn't busy. Having just watched/ listened to Sam's Defying Gravity I agree with the earlier comments...horrendous! I haven't seen Wicked (but I want to) so I looked it up in YouTube and even having an asthma attack at the 2004 Tony Awards Idina Menzel was SO much better!

Rachel hits too many bum notes, Jessie is dull and repetitive (the constant grabbing at her hair, neck or dress really annoys me, as does the singing out a corner of her mouth) and Niamh MUST GO! She is a young Cilla Black when she sings. Sure, Jodie's rendition of Holding Out for a Hero was quite cabaret, but that's the kind of song it is!

Who knows what's going to happen...
