After watching the results show, you become very aware of how inconsistent the panels’ comments are. Rachel received this comment from the Lord: “Bravo you! So good to see you come through like this.” If you missed the results show, read on and you will find out what I mean.
The Nancy mission was a good one this week. The ladies had to spend a night in a Victorian house; so Big Brother in the past then? Well, not quite as this was not the clever part of the task. They then had to speak and act the lyrics to “As Long As He Needs Me.”
The results were mixed. Barry praised Jessie, although was it just me or did she sound like Sean Connery? Rachel was brilliant and even Barry had to admit he was impressed. Jodie was heartfelt and is certainly coming on as an actress, compared with the earlier rounds. I just wish she would stop the histrionics at the end when she gets through. It must irritate those who are getting the boot!
Samantha was above average, although she took a while to warm up. Predictably, Barry was very impressed.
Next came the group number and again, it dawned on you that the professional was just that. The song was “A Hard Day’s Night” and Rachel is clearly the only one who can move. Jodie tries but almost too hard, Samantha always resorts to the crab walk, all bow-legged and shifty, whereas Jessie is actually getting worse. This week she resembled a chimp on loads of e numbers, it was excrutiating.
My fears about young Gwyon’s Welsh accent are thankfully fading as he has clearly been trained and it was almost gone during “Where Is Love?” Although, I still feel there were better lads that they have let go.
Who Is Not Nancy- Panels’ Verdict
When asked who has not delivered as Nancy, the panelists said the following:
John stuck to his guns and thought Jessie should leave. Denise agreed with him. Barry thought Jodie should go and Cameron backed him.
So, Rachel has won some fans amongst the panel.
Results…. Jodie, first one through
The results came in and Jodie was first through. This week she was more over the top than ever before, grabbing her mother as the others looked on worried. She did the “Thankyou so much” reminscent of a Big Brother contestant as Davina calls out an eviction. The saved one always talks out loud, letting god (the viewer) know that they ever so grateful for the forthcoming Heat interview!
Rachel’s name was called out next and she was in the sing-off. But with the comments she received, she should be safe, eh? Jessie was through next and punched her arms in the air. Despite negative criticism of late, she is clearly a hit with the voters. This leaves Samantha and Rachel. Sam received the lowest number of votes.
The sing-off song is “Memory” from Cats and it is well delivered by both ladies. Sam has grown as a performer and really has some good stage presence now. But she does have a tendancy to smile during the most heartfelt of songs. I have yet to be convinced by her acting ability, either.
But the Lord, predictably undoes his own comments and saves her, leaving Rachel to go home.
He then says to Rachel: “You have got such a good career ahead of you.” She looks at him and smiles, probably thinking, if my prospects are that good, why didn’t you save me? She exits with a powerful rendition of “As Long As He Needs Me” and the programme has lost a real contender.
So, the fnal is next week. Sam is clearly a favourite, along with Jessie. So, will they give Jodie naff disco numbers to get her voted out? Who knows? But I have a feeling that the inconsistency of the Lord may bite him back next week, as I think the viewers will go for Jodie now and back her all the way.
Tune in next week to find out who gets then part.
Who do I want to win? Well, even though I feel slightly miffed at Rachel’s departure, I am with Jodie now.
