With the final just twenty four hours away, everyone has their favourite, although unlike Joseph and Maria, many folks’ faves have since been sent packing. Has your Nancy left the building already? Or is the feisty one still there, waiting to win?
I liked Rachel and thought Sarah was a very talented lass. I also thought Ashley had a certain something; she wasn’t always on the money but, as a reality tv character, she had a real survival instinct which became very endearing. So, as you read through my ideal scenario for tomorrow, leave a comment whether you agree or not, as you guys have kept this blog going and your views are really appreciated.
First to go:
Hopefully Jessie. I know this Irish philly has a huge following but apart from the voice, which on the odd show has been exceptional, there is no star quality. The posture, the answering back to the panelists and the awkwardness of this performer needs ironing out and it will take more than a few months to do that.
Sam. There is no doubting that this girl has grown as a performer. But due to the constant praise, she seems to believe her own hype, beyond belief. The role itself requires some emotional depths to be plunged. Can you imagine the Bill Sykes scene, whereby he beats Nancy? Sam would either smile throughout or look blank, as she has no real acting style apart from earnest or happy.
I have my reservations, but Jodie should win. She is not the best girl in the whole competition but she is the best we have got left. She has given some winning performances. I am sure the ‘cabaret’ can be ironed out and with the right people working with her, she would win the audience over, nightly. She certainly requires the least amount of work and like a puppy, she is eager to please!
What do you think? Let the battle commence……..
More on Sunday re the fnal, itself.
Good Luck Jodie!
