Not everyone attends the same zumba or biscuit-baking class as you, Bickypeg.

Saw Melanie C in Blood Brothers, and although I didn't find her acting as good as some other cast members, her voice was great.
I'm not sure what the demographic for the show is? Could all fans of the musical fill the arenas?
Or will it be a mixture of Chris Moyles, Tim Minchin and Spice Girl fans as well?

But changing the subject, what do people think of the re-issue of the original album? Do you think it will sell well?

Remember ITV & ALW have had to choose 10 guys for the LIVE audition shows. It is not in the viewers or their best interest to give "Air Time" to those that they didn't or that they couldn't take to the final stage,no matter how wrong or right they may have been for the part of Jesus.
In the real world of auditioning sometimes people get overlooked & sometimes others get given an opportunity to shine, this process is no different. I know a handful of guys on top of the boys that went for "Jesus" that weren't available to audition in the first place that would have made a brilliant "Jesus's" So you see its not always about who's best... its about "right guy, right place , right time" I'd hate to think of all the jobs I would've have lost out on if we were all available at the same time :-)
All the boys I met at "Jesus School" deserved a shot & what everyone else thinks about the finalists is irrelevant because ITV & ALW ultimately decide, & are better placed to make that decision than anyone else.
The guys I met on "Superstar Island"came from far & wide & with varied experience in performing. What I love about the "TV searches" is that it gives the raw talent of this country that don't necessarily have the luxury of an agent or professional training behind them the chance to muscle it out on a level playing field with those like myself lucky enough to have both. I have never asked for a free pass for anything & do not want to be treated any different than the next guy & that was an attitude that was shared amongst most of the boys in the last 40 of Superstar.
I had such a laugh & have enjoyed watching the Tv Programmes immensely even if I was terrified I was gonna look like an idiot!

I'm sure a lot of great actors miss out on parts because they are already committed to something else, so this format is no different. In many ways, the advanced notice of the auditions may have offered it up to more, but it looks like it wasn't entirely clear when the successful contestants would need time off from their other committments, and there would reach a point where they'd have to pick between showing loyalty to their existing employers and taking a chance at a big part.
It's interesting that he's said he thinks ITV have given a fair representation of the contestants so far.
