I totally agree. They stood out like a metaphorical pair of sore thumbs - you could see they were completely out of step from the others dance-wise, and Jessie really seemed to stand out from the others in that she did NOT cope well with singing during a fairly energetic routine.
It's a shame - I thought Jessie was going to do quite well at the start of the competition but now I just can't for the life of me understand how she's still in it when fantastic performers like Sarah have been booted out.



Because she has so much more stage presence than Sarah the Midget who quite frankly I  hated blink.gif

Jodie "Heifer" Nancy needs to go, she annoys the hell out of me with her cabaret singing and thinking she is the people's Nancy just because she is rough!
I think the only one who could actually play Nancy effectively is Rachel.
Niamh's voice goes through me, Jessie is not very good and Sam was absolutley terrible singing Defying Gravity.
Everyone has different views though, just giving my opinion, so please don't say I'm talking rubbish or anything, we are all entitled to speak our minds!

Jodie fits the physical description of Nancy that Dickens gave in the original novel better than any of the girls

I, for one, don't think that her physicality is inappropriate for the role

Watching the show tonight, no one stood out at all.
They should never have gotten rid of sarah in my opinion!

Samantha and Ben, what a pairing!

The two most attractive, and best moving.

You see the hip action in their dance?

Ben Ellis is such a fantastic mover, and Sam worked great with him.

Whew, still a bit hot under the collar about the whole Ben Ellis/Daniel Boys being there affair really!

Stage presence is one thing...but at least Sarah could sing in tune and didn't move as if she was made of wood.

I liked sarah and thought she had a really strong voice but she just kept reminding me of Monica in friends when they had flashbacks to when she was fat.  I know Sarah isn't fat but she had the same mannerisms and everything and I just couldn't get over that when watching her.

The best two tonight were Jodie and Sam, Rachel was middling and Jessie and Niamh were the worst.
