Connie is the best she deserves to win more than anyone else. simona's accent is so not right for the part, what do you think?

Henry
Connie, you are brilliant ! ....... Bottled fun with great looks and a voice to match........ in short.... Maria !!

Harry Potter
I think that Connie blatantly will win, but she is way too polished and perfect.

Xx Hannah xX
I think Connie has a gd voice bt I don't lyk her attitude! Leanne 2 win!!!

Nadia ( Wales )
I think Connie is the best,and the only one who could play Maria.Go Connie, Wales is behind you, put Wales on the map.

Serena G
Connie just isn't Maria - however good she is!

Laura (14)
WOW!! I missed last week's show so i was watching them again on the internet and you send shivers down my spine everytime you sing! You must be the luckiest Maria there getting to kiss a guy like that!! Keep up the work and win!

Connie 2 win !!!
:) Connie is so amazing. She looks the part and she can sing and act better than the others. She really is Maria. There is no competition!!! I luv u Connie! ;)

Kirsty
Connie i think you are amazing and if you keep singing like you have you are gonna go the whole way.

Guinevere (Belgium)
Yes, Connie IS the best singer in the show but she is NOT the best Maria! Connie needs to be in a funny comedy, not a sentimental drama like The Sound of... Ik can see her sing something like "Anything you can do I can do better." She really will be a true star, but not Maria.

Francesca age 7
I know that Connie is the best singer in the contest. I think she should win!

Anna
Connie has a great loud voice so everyone can hear. I think Connie should be Maria.I've liked her from the very start

Susie
connie has talent, a fabulous voice and FILLS the stage with her personality. Her interpretation of 'Shout' was entertaining and a joy to watch. She's my Maria!

polly
you are the best maria!!!!! I really want you to win!!!!!!!!!

Susan
Connie - you are the best! When you were acting the scene with "the captain" you shone where the others either merely flickered or just simply failed to light.

Anna

Georgiie

Nicola Preece.(Pembs)
Connie has my heart racing every Saturday night can’t wait to see her perform!! “SHOUT” WAS AMAZING she had me laughing!!! Thought her performance was so funny. Would like to see her fall over and scrape her knee! Must be Maria X

Sally Coaker (Pembs)
Fame and fortune would never change Connie, she is adorable person with an amazing talent who wants to bring joy to so many people, being Maria would give her so much satisfaction and she has truly earned it for all her years of hard work. Good luck.

PEMBROKESHERE PEOPLE LISTEN UP!!!

ams

Neil
There are some talented people on the show but to turn Shout into a musical number "Genius" Connie is far superior in talent than sme of the rest . Connie has to win she is my "Maria"

Heather Spangler - 12
Connie you were the best in the compittion you brought the whole thing to life. I recorded the show on tape and am trying to memorize your dance lol. Well your great and i'll always vote for you!

Wharris
I think that because she's been classically trained, it must be very hard for Connie to sing a pop song like that. But she did a great job! I don't think I could manage it, but I might have a go next time I'm at karaoke.

Emma L
Well what can i say she is thatbrown paper pacage tied up with string she is amazing VOTE CONNIE!

steve
connie is the only one who could be maria not just that lets face it she a great singer too she deserves a break vote connie

Abigail (Wales)
You are the best by far. I think you should win and your voice is amazing. If you win I want to see you as Maria. VOTE CONNIE!!

wouldnt you like to know
I thought this whole competition would end in tears and the show would end up having a maria who could barely sing in tune. Connie has made me think differently as she is so very talented! The only woman for the job, i voted like a million time after that great performance of shout!! keep it up Connie we are all voting for you!!!

Lisa Higgins
Go Connie , she is truly the best all round singer she has the energy and the star quaility that we all love to watch go Connie wales is supporting you all the way.

MONKTON PEOPLE
Connie is well remembered here in Pembroke for all her great charity work! We all voting for her!! CONNIE IS MARIE!!!!!! VOTE FOR CONNIE X X X AV A MARIE AS CONNIE.

Ceri C
I think Connie has been brilliant so far and I'm sure she'll continue. She deserves the part and I know she would give everything to the role of Maria. She has worked so hard to get this far. I grew up with her in school and she is a great entertainer, she was always the girl to cheer you up. I haven't seen you for a few years now Con, but its great to see you on the telly! You can count on my vote! My mum is really proud of you to, but I don't think she knows how to the use the internet so I'll put that comment in for her. Keep going Con, have a great time on the show I have my fingers crossed for you. Luv Cezza xx

WENDY( Pembrokeshire)
Connie has a God given talent which she loves to share with every one!! She loves to sing every minute of every day (probable in her sleep too!!) I hope the viewers will she her true personality as she continues to stay in the competition. She is a wonderful person and performer HOW DO YOU SOLVE A PROBLEM LIKE MARIA? Solution is simple, give the role to Connie!!! May God bless you Connie, as your dream comes true (Andrews Aunt X)

Jay
Look Connie,...your good, but you really need to stop thinking your going to win this. you may have the attention of the producers...but i think leanne is going to win the audience.

Xenia
Connie has my vote - I think she is very talanted - both singing and acting. My only concern is that she is too much like Julie Andrews so far. She needs to show us how she will approach this in a different way, how she is different.

Suzanne
Connie 2 win she's the best out of them all and has an amazing voice and she has the voice to be Maria PLEASE VOTE FOR CONNIE

Rebecca Sheard
The performance on the 19th of August was just.....WOW.....! Go Girl

Timbo
P.S. She's one of the few Marias who can actually sing in tune!

Stephen
As a regular West-End visitor I haven't been blown away by a performer like Connie in a long time. I can't wait to see her grace the stage soon....what a voice!

sarah
connie the best!!!!!!!! she is gonna win!!!!!!!!! we are all for you connie-good luck x

LAU....
CONNIE HAS GOT SO CLOSE TO WINNING IN PREVIOUS WEST END AUDITIONS. SO THIS TIME PLEASE MAKE THIS A DREAM COME TRUE AND VOTE CONNIE! THANK YOU.

Maddie - 12yrs
hi connie! all my family think youre the best and ofcourse that you should win! i know everyone says this but i just know that youll go all the way! as well as aofie, siobhan, simona and meliz ofcourse. good luck gal! Mxxx

Suzi
Really did not like her performanc ethis week. Over done and too pushy.

Jak
Connie, your future is assured. Granted, Julie Andrews is a tremendously hard act to follow, but you have shown you can do it and do it with a little modernisation for the 21st. Century. I bet Simon Cowell and Co. are eating their hearts out at not finding you first!

Chloe Crichton
i have been voting for connie because i belive that she is truly the best maria vonn trapp...her style, attitude and performance match the character perfectly. i am standing by her in this competition and i wish her all the luck in the world. I, like many others, thoroughly enjoyed her performance out shout! and i cant wait to see her performance next week..she just gets better and better XX

Acton
Far too arrogant and self confident. You are one of the best in the competition, but to win viewers votes you must show some humility.

LAURA....
ANOTHER GREAT SONG CONNIE COULD SING IS. CYNDI LAUPERS GIRLS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN! THIS WILL SHOW CONNIES FUN MARIA SIDE!

Tashie
Why are we all saying Connie isn't good enough?! Are you guys crazy!! Connie is EASILY the best in the competition!! She's a head and shoulders about the rest, only onle person comes close to Connie but Andrew is right, Leanne is a little too young. She looks too you and naive to be Maria. If Connie doesn't win then there is definately some sort of conspiracy going on! She's a fabulous singer and an AMAZING actress aswell! Nobody can fault her on either of those. What else do you need? It's her time to shine!! We love you Connie!! x

Liberty
Connie or Leanne should win , they both have the right attitude and both deserve it!!!!! VOTE CONNIE OR LEANNE

Sarah
Connie is a brilliant performer and has done two great performances, however, she comes across as a littel arrogant. she has had extensive training and lots of experience. I think she needs to relax and have more fun! She thinks she is better than the others

Nadine. Manchester
Although Connie isn't my favourite I do believe that she is the best. Her performance on saturday was pure stage. To make such a simple song into comedey was excellant. Not only her vocal ability but also her facial expression's and stage presence was flawless. I think it is a shame that she has never made it to the West End but hopefully this show will prove to the production team and viewers that she is the best suited for the role. She has also shown the staff that her vocal ability isnt her only talent. Again during the acting lesson it shown that she would be a perfect Maria. I dont think that all the girls truly understand the work that is involved in a West End production. I cant wait for the final and I hope that the production will also come to Manchester as I would gladly pay to experince the perfomance. Good Luck!

viv's
vote for the best connie in the world!

Hannah MacLeod
Connie should win I'm only 11 and when I grow up I want to be just like her

Robert
My girlfriend and I are from the Netherlands and have been watching from day one. Early in the competition Connie stood out for me, and last Saturday sent shivers up my spine. This girl has so much talent it HURTS. Go Connie!!!!

Zanna
I think Connie's the best because she can act and sing. I thought what she sang on saturday was amazing and made me laugh. I think Connie is going to win!!

Jo
We know all the girls can sing but thats just one ticked box and there are an awful lot of boxes to tick and each one will have their moment to shine - but some will shine through more than others and fact is connie is the one - She certainly sets a high standard to all that follows her each week best of luck

David Evans
Connie make Mrs P. proud. You done so well so far keep fighting I know you can win this thing!

Maria
I like Connie, but she is too perfect. Calm down, it is obvious you have got it but I just think that you should have fun. My favourite is Leanne.

Emma McFarland
I think Connie is the best in that she is vibrant, fun, energetic, has great character and peronality. Talented all round

annoyed
Connie does not have the demure attitude needed by the part, She IS a good singer, but this show is not just about singing. Its about attitude and not looking relaxed with that @ I knoe I've already got the part attitude )

Donnie
Performance was ggod on saturday - But voice look and acting too much like Julie Andrews - I think she must have watched the film so much - she may be cloning herself. She needs to give some individuality to her performance.Lets see the real Connie - Not Julie Andrews

Dorothy
Connie is very talented and deserves to be Maria.Ive said it right from the start.Please vote for Connie.

Amy
OH MY GOD! what an amazing performer! you are so good. when me nd my family were watching on Saturday the 19th and graham asked you to wait where you were me and my sister both went "WHAT?? SIMONA GOT THROUGH AND YOUR BOOTING CONNIE OUT! WHAT THE HELL!" we was so angry lol. but then when graham announced that you got the highest number of votes we was like YES woohoo! i think you have amazing talent and i think you should win! keep your chin up. you look like a maria and if you get the part im sure Julie Andrews will be thrilled! GOOD LUCK!

Sabrina
STOP the show... We have our Maria, why waste any more time and give the others false hope. I love Connie.She is extremely talented has a great passion for the arts, works hards and deserves to win.Ps I am connie's number one fan.

Rebecca, Norwich
Connie outshone everyone this week. If she were up against these girls in a regular audition she would win hands down.

Fiona
Connie and Helena are the only two with real class to thier voices. The others could't handle it

Laura I
Hi I would just like to say how much Connie is an inspiration to me! Ive watched nearly evry episode and right from the begining I have placed my money on her! I agree she is in many ways Maria. I cant wait till next Saturday to see what she sings next! Whatever it is Im sure she will bring the house down with her performance as she did on Saturday(19th) night! Good luck Connie xxxxxxxx

Lydia
Connie is the only Maria for me. Consistently fantastic. We love you Connie!

carol hibberd
Connie I have been voting for you since week 1 not realising until I read the news on BBC page today that you are from Pembrokeshire and welsh . I really think that you are the most suitable for the part and will be very disappointed if you don't get it .As soon as we look at you we see MARIA. You are Maria no matter hat anyone else says..Good Luck

cara smith
connie is maria!! she has the spark, humour and charisma which julie andrews brought to the role all those years ago,however in the process connie makes maria her own. accompanied by her supreme singing and convincing acting ability, haw could she not take centre stage at the London palladium!!

Jolie
YAh totally..Connie 2 win!!!I just watched this last week and was already amazed by Connie's abilities!!!!!WOW!

Emma
What can I say!? I think you have the whole package, a wonderful voice, talented acting, lovely personality, commited, fun, exciting to watch... the list goes on, and you are perfect for the role as Maria. I am already looking forward to seeing you in the show! Keep up the good work, your efforts will certainly be rewarded! Well done! :-)

John
Have seen quite a lot of westend shows and would say connie would make a fantastic leading lady in any show let alone Sound of Music

Nick
A true star in the making. Vote for Connie every week!

LAURA....
I THINK THAT CONNIE SHOULD SING WHITNEY HOUSTON'S I WANT TO DANCE WITH SOMEBODY. I THINK CONNIE COULD PULL THAT SONG OFF REALLY WELL.

Lynn
Connie to be Maria! You have been my fave from the begninning, you deserve it! You have everything, you remind me of julie Andrews so much!! you have amazing acting skills and your performances hit the spot every time, dnt think my boy friend wld of been happy about tonights performance either, but im sure hes proud aswell as jealouse :P love you Connie!! Lynn S xx

ping
your really really good connie your the best

toby
connie you are definately maria. you have all her attitudes. but i feel very sorry for your boyfriend after shout!!!

Timbo
Well if anyone knows about hills and singing it should be a Welsh girl! Then again, you just kind hide the fact that she's been trained to do this job. It's a no-brainer. She's streets ahead of the competition!!!!

Connie's man fan.
She can sing she can dance she can act... what more do you want, ALW? She has got to be maria she is so fantastic. She's quite pretty as well. When she kissed that guy i was like, oh lucky guy. Lucky LUCKY guy!

Connie has the looks, the personality, the determination, the voice, and even more importantant she is a fab actress. I will not be buying my tickets until I know that she is Maria.

unknown

darren cole
Connie is amazing i saw her love of singing and acting through out school and she has just got better and better. come on connie do it for sir thomas picton school.

Jon
Connie, I didn't like your act tonight. Last week you stood out from the others, this week no.

Simon
Ok, correct me if I'm wrong, but from my memory of the original film of TSOM, Maria got into trouble for singing all the time, in fact this is what she's doing at the start of the film with the opening number, yes? So Connie is exactly right for the part!

Sarah
Connie, you have the face and voice for maria! you are amazing! your performance of shout was incredible and your vocals are fab! i hope you win!! !!CONNIE TO WIN!!

Amy ,Anna and Emily
We are a mother and daughter trio who are cheering for Team Connie. Emily is eight and Anna is six years old, and we all hope that you make it as Maria, so we can travel to London to see you! Keep up the excellent work and here's to many more memorable performances ahead! VOTE FOR CONNIE!

Alan
Connie was supercalifragilisticexpialidocious. I was utterly gobsmacked with her performance, she is without a doubt a true star and deserves to play the part of Maria, I would also like to see her go on to play my favourite of all musical characters Mary Poppins, I think she would be brilliant. She is the new Julie Andrews. All the best Connie, lots of hugs.

Amanda L
If only Connie didn't overact so much

H
Strain on her voice??? has she ever lost her voice! shes been trained she knows what to do with her voice!

Beth
hey Connie fits all the description that ALW asked for hey wanted a great actress a wonderful singer thats a bit of a tom boy I can see that in connie. I know you can do it!!!

Jenny
Connie is definately a 101% winner.. Connie is surely the uttermost Maria, looks, acting superbly fitted..Your the winner Connie believe me chuck... Jenny xxx

Cristina
Connie, you have been one of my favorites from the beginning now, but I never knew how AMAZING an actress you are until I saw this week's episode. You were great!But for the audience and your boyfriends sake- please don't grope and kiss anyone next week.

Helen
Connie is AMAZING. If she doesn't win then i'm not going to see the show. She is super and truly deserves it.

Lauren
CONNIE TO WIN!!! What a wonderful singer...i wish you luck!

Peter, London
Amazing again!! Another wonderful performance Connie...great singing and acting. You are Maria!!

Nicola
Come on Connie! I'm routing for ya girl!

Richard
I hope Connie wins as she may then hand in the course work she still owes me !!

Laura W
OCD? Who needs professional help for singing?

Laura (WALES)
I think that Connie has an fabulous voice, and would like to say well done for an amazing performance tonight. You've certainly got my vote - a perfect Maria.

Mark
Without doubt the true Maria of the pack. The only one with true consistency in all of her skill sets - true talent!! I'll buy a ticket just to see her perform!!

Polly
If Connie gets voted out the show will be a flop because no one is more Maria than Connie is.

Jen
Da iawn, Connie! Daliwch ati! We're all rootin' for you over here in Cymru!

jessie
Connie really is Maria. If you just watch her, you see it. I think she was born for this role.

ConnieFanNumber1
Connie is such a legend. She has it all, the voice, the acting and the looks. The performance of 'Shout' just stole the show, Go Connie!!!

Sarah Roberts
Go Connie! You are a really good singer and performer! Singing all the time can be a bit annoying but it's because you love it so much.

Anita
I think Connie is absolutely determined to win and will do anything to achieve that. Some of her comments on the other competitors are, well, suspect.

Rebecca
I know tht some think Connie shouldn't be in the show as she is moreexperienced than the other Maria's - however, i think if i was paying £40+ for a ticket, I would want to pay for someone who can deliver performance and not some teenager who might get 1st night nerves and sob their way through... Connie to win!

Hannah R
I want Connie to win she has such a stage presence and will bring Maria alive for me I think Helena should be out she always pulls the wierdest faces when singing VOTE CONNIE

B C
Connie, give th others a quiet moment, for goodness sake!!!

Alison
Ok - looks the part , sings the part - now time to see the chemistry with children on stage. Remember Yul Brynner in The King and I ? Looking forwrad to next week !

Emma.T
I am Connie's greatest fan, she has the most amazing vocie and think she is the most amazing person. If anyone is Maria its her so please vote!!

vivs
vote connie cause she is da best maria in the whole school.

lydia
cum on connie 4 pembrokeshire PLEASE VOTE CONNIE!!!!!!

I
CONNIE IS GR8

Emma Pembs
Go for it Connie the people of pembrokeshire are with you, you a a star and deserve to win this you are the best by far, good luck for tonight i will be votin for you

Anon
Hoorah! Belinda is right on the money. I did a tour with Connie. Talented & lovely as Miss Fisher is..the constant singing drove the entire dressing room insane!! Go Belinda Go!!

rebecca wild
i know its the wrong musical but 'i think shes got it'!!! connie is amazing. i think she can do it. she sings with her eyes and seems to be able to sell any song with her facial expressions. And to put that voice with it to me she just has that 'thing' that everyone is looking for.

Hannah
I think one of the quiet one's will go out this week, like Belinda. There's not much about her! CONNIE 2 WIN!!!!!!

Moira
I've got tickets for the show in November and so far Connie is the Maria I would like to see - keep it up.

justin from brum
CONNIE IS ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC AND AM GOING TO ENJOY WATCHING HER AND THE OTHER NON MARIAS FOR THE NEXT 9 SATURDAYS AND FORGET ABOUT THE X-FACTOR ;-)))))

Julie
Hmmmm... OCD? I doubt it. Ask her if she thinks anything 'bad' yet irrational (like her house will blow up) will happen if she doesn't sing. If she does, then it's probably OCD. If she doesn't, it's probably just a habit... :P Good luck Connie and Belinda.

Dave Cole
All Connie is doing is practicing for the show! Maybe that is why she got more votes than Belinda.

Hazel
Connie should lighten up - she's trying too hard!! It won't necessarily help her to win if she puts extra strain on voice. I thinmk all the girls are great but my favourites are Leanne & Simona.

Adman
From the instant Connie came onto our screens, i knew she was the only one capable of being Maria. Vote Connie! She's Amazing!

Sian Johnson
i love Connie. she rocks and she's bin my fav since the auditions. CONNIE TO WIN!!!!!!!!!!

William
a good singer who wants to go somewhere sings all day long night and day shows her determination and passion for her voice and keeping her folds active! :)

LAURA
I think that Connie will know when to be funny and again serious. As the competition goes on i think she will know when to act serious as it gets more tough.

Laura
I think Connie should keep on singing. Because after all that is what the show is about! Plus she can practice her singing alot more.

Laura
