Yeah, I noticed that, I think Seamus mentioned ageism and then Norton said "Now lets welcome 35 year old Seamus" - in a jokey way, but still.
I really should pay more attention :oops:
Anyway, the guy who sang "I Dont Wanna Talk About It" was very good.

Disappointing week overall.

Ben - After a reasonable week last week he's back to lame.
Craig - zzzzzzzzzzzzz
Lee - Poorest performance to date, naff song didn't suit him at all.
Keith - Good hi-pitch vocalist, needs to display some lower range.
Lewis - Lifeless and one-note. He looked as bored as I felt.
Rob - Struggled with the high notes, but did a decent singing job.
Chris - Still sings like a sissy and has no charisma whatsoever.
Daniel - Surprisingly good, possibly the one I liked the most.

Keith was the 17 year old guy right (who sang Love Is all around?)? I thought he was very good vocally, though the song is naff as you say.
Daniel was one of the best tonight and surprisingly good, he sings it far better than McFly :D
I liked Lee as well. Rob was OK at the beginning of the song, but it got worse towards the end.

Sorry if I'm mixed up :oops:

Yes.

I never said it was a naff song.

Who doesn't?

You should start taking notes. :wink:

Well I think Love is all Around is a bit naff.
Chris was a bit of a charisma free zone.

Glad Chris went out, though his performance at the end was actually his best by far, quite good IMO, and it's very clever, with the others taking the coat away.

I really wanted Craig to go but the lord is really predictable - I knew he would boot out Chris. I hope that Craig is next but we'll see...

Craig was actually very good tonight - most of them were. LOL @ the challenge - some of the insults were funny. Daniel's effort was feeble though. :lol:

Aye I knew Rob wasn't gonna win it. He was gonna go sooner or later.

I agree I thought Keith, Daniel and Craig were good.
The challenge made me laugh, when they said mean stuff to John Barrowman and each other :lol: Most conveyed emotion well IMO.
Rob deserved to go, he wasnt good on the Tom Jones song at all.

Rob was just terrible throughout the series, there was no competition as to who ALW would choose. he shouts, and tries to hard makes his performances hard to bear for more than a few seconds.

Lee is still my favourite. but Keith is just sweet! his performance was fantastic, the emotion was conveyed just perfect. don't think he has the mature look that's needed, but he has some fantastic talent. if he doesn't get Joseph he should at least be Benjamin...

I agree with this - Keith has a great voice :) Don't know if he could be the older Joseph but he is a very good singer and can convey emotion, YAOMM isn't a love song as such - its a "I've been a shit, give me a second chance" song, and he did it very well. :)

Lee was the best last night, followed, surprisingly, by Craig, who may have turned a corner.

Rob was awful and deserved to go, though I think he's actually a better singer than the weak pretty boy Lewis, who's only still there because of his looks.

Daniel sung a rock song like he was performing cabaret for a bunch of old Queens. He has no range beyond camp (but he's maybe suited to certain types of musical theatre).

Keith was good, though his acting clashed a little with his vocals. He needs to be 100% on both.

Ben is a waste of space. He's cocky without the talent to match. I can't see why people keep voting for him.

Daniel was voted out last night I think.
He has a good voice and made Evergreen sound good - sort of. But he smiled a lot in the song.
Keith has a very good voice but I'm not sure Brown Eyed Girl suited him.
Lewis - zzzzz.
I liked Lee's "Paint It Black" however.

Lee is a fantastic performer and singer and for me he should win this competition easily.

whilst Keith and Craig are good. I don't like Ben or Lewis that much.... and all of them sound like young boys singing, they don't have that maturity in their voices that they will need for the latter half of the musical. whereas Lee and Daniel do.

But Daniel, i agree with him going out. though Ben would have been my personal choice he's far to arrogant and hasnt as of yet shown enough emotional range to even consider being Jospeh....Daniel hasn't got that wide a range of emotions, or vocal tones. and ALW asked the right question "could people sit and watch you for 2 hours?" my answer is no.

Lee easily outclassed his competition on Saturday.

If he doesn't win it'll be a disgrace.

Lee should win with Keith coming top 3 (or something like that) IMO.

Ben or Lewis should have gone out last night. It's difficult not to perform Suspiscious Minds in anything but a showy, cabaret style, given Elvis's performance IMO. OK, Craig smiled a lot in the song, but he wasnt that bad, but Lewis is as wet as a fish's wet bits. Ben's falsetto stank on Roy Orbison's Cryin'.
Keith was good, but maybe too rehearsed.
Lee all the way.

Ben murdered Cryin' last night, absolute crap. we played this at my dads funeral and its a beautiful song, utter crap when Ben sang it, he should've gone out.

Lewis i didn't find that bad. though he could have been more forceful with the chorus, but he wasn't terrible.

didn't like Craig much, but he shouldn't of gone out.

and of course Lee always outclasses the competition, he was great on "you raise me up"

Keith was showy and arrogant, as he should have been, but i dunno still too baby faced/

tho for me it was a hard show to watch, not only did we play Cryin' at dads funeral, but also "you raise me up"

Lee was the best again last night, he was especially powerful on the duet.

Ben wasn't good enough for Crying, but wasn't horrible. I still think he should have gone out.

Keith was probably the least impressive last night, his Let Me Entertain You didn't.

Craig was pretty decent, no more, no less. Should have stayed.

Lewis was this week's surprise as I thought he was better than ever before. His vocals have taken a real stretch IMO.

I agree Mark, I thought Craig was OK, how can "smiling too much" be a reason to send someone home? :? I like Keith, but he didnt seem natural enough. Too prepared, too forced. Robbie he ain't.
I didnt hear the duet, is it on Youtube or whatever? I really liked the song "Daydream Believer" :)
