The girls sing “Don’t Rain On My Parade” again and all I can think about is Lea Michelle again. Ahhhh Glee! Um…. right, back to Over The Rainbow. Sheila is asked if the standard is high enough and she says: “Anyone of those girls could be Dorothy.” The Lord asks Graham is the mash-up is going to be lumpy? I’m now shouting at the TV screen: “What do you think?”
Who picks these songs? We are treated (not sure if this is the right word after hearing the mash up?!) to “Well, Did You Ever” from High Society mashed with Pink’s “Get The Party Started.”The result is like mixing houmous with tomato ketchup and it’s not the girls’ fault. Either axe this or do it Glee style. Ahhhhh Glee!
Nobody left a comment last week asking for more on the Search for Toto but as Legally Blonde was plugged, thought it might have livened up this week. One of the stars of the show, Amy Lennox works alongside the finalists on stage and Missy the dog wins. Jodie who is morphing into a Carry On…. caricature, says: “I’m turning into a proud mother.” These are dogs, not kids!
If you have seen the Blair Witch-esque type clips for this pointless task, you get the picture. One-by-one the Dorothys must walk through the forest alone (apart from a massive filing crew!) watched by their mothers in a nearby tent. It’s dark and there is a cuddly flying monkey ready to scare them. I half expected to see Yvette Fielding crowing about in the back ground. This mission is utterly pointless and as each Dorothy follows a sign which either points them ‘home’ or to ‘Oz’, I would have looked for one that said ‘My Agent!’ For anyone who was still awake at this point Steph, Sophie and Danielle chose to go to Oz.
Dorothy, which other Dorothy cannot cut it in the West End?
The Dorothys are asked which other Dot would struggles in the West End. The results throw up some interesting results:
Danielle says Jenny, Jenny says Stephanie, Stephanie says Jenny, Lauren says Stephanie, Steph says Jess, Jess says Jenny, Sophie says Stephanie. They all want this part. Will they have to pelt one of the others with gunk next week?
Who is NOT Dorothy?
Sheila says Stephanie, John says Stephanie and Charlotte sees sense and says Sophie. Does anyone else get the feeling that Stephanie is being mentioned so that we don’t end up with a Jodie situation? E.g a girl winning the title as the peoples’ Dorothy but not the Lord’s? She was not great but Sophie is definitely not Dorothy! Wonderful World, eh?
Steph is in the bottom two, Danielle is through (Someone is voting, fantastic!), Jess and Lauren are through, Jenny is through (Scotland clearly vote for their lass, but will Wales do the same for Sophie?), Sophie is through, so I guess they feel they did let her down last week. This leaves Stephanie and Steph in the bottom two. I hope the Lord saves the right one, given that they have the same name!
The girls sing “Tell Me On A Sunday” and poor Stephanie cannot compose herself. She is a sweet girl and clearly does not want to leave but it feels inevitable as she is being outsung and outacted. But the sad thing is, there are three girls in safety far worse than she is, someone demand a re-count! Seriously, Steph brings more emotion to the song, even though Stephanie is actually emotional throughout. The Lord saves Steph.
Great finale as Stephanie delivers her final song. Poor girl! She is probably thinking why is Sophie still here, the byatch!!?
Next week two go home. If Danielle and Steph go, there is no show to watch, so fingers crossed that Wales and Scotland forget to vote and that Jess gets to sing “I’ve Got No Strings!” Tune in next week to find out. Bye Stephanie, good luck!
