Ditto to everything you have said musical fan!! Having said that, I must say I won't be too disappointed if she doesn't win because I think in a way she is too good for Nancy. I would love her to get a much bigger role in the west end. She would be a great Roxie Hart or Velma Kelly but she could also breath life into Cabaret!!!

In some ways I blame the judges for this as they have made Rachael try way too hard, and that's what came accross for me.

as i said previously, i think she's rested on her laurels throughout this series. i've not seen any improvement from her whatsoever (even jessie has got better as time goes on, though obviously started from much further back). i think she assumed that, as a pro, she'd progress easily, and as fran and sarah went, she saw herself as being a sure thing for the final.
i think that changed last week, and she suddenly realised she wasn't so safe. she pulled out all the stops in terms of effort, but the net result wasn't actually that great. it reeked of neediness and it just wasn't an attractive performance in any way, shape or form.
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should

Right from the start I felt she was the weakest of the three professionals. Sarah was the strongest actress but wasn't right for Nancy, while Francesca was less strong than Sarah but better suited to the part. But Rachel has always been "the other one" to me.

You may not like that but it's the truth and if the West End are behing this girl i would have to say that their opinion is worth remebering. The show is manipulated into the making the public see and think in different ways and if your not in this profession then you are likely to believe what the show dictates to us, have we really got to see the real Rachel??? I think not, to me most of the camera time goes to Jodie, which was apparent on the Paul O'Grady show, the others girls had to fight to get heard! I knida hope in a wired way Rachel does go this week and on to bigger and better things than being tarnished with the Nancy role all her life, just look at Connie?
Sorry to rant but had to say something after reading you all your comments, i've kept quite for so long! Sorry
