We just can't wait till Saturday!

How are our Marias feeling?

How are our Marias feeling?

Leanne
I am really looking forward to Saturday. I can't wait to prove to the judges that I can be a leading lady. I have the stamina!

Abi
I'm gonna live and live now, get what I want, I know how, one roll for the whole shebang, one throw that bell will go clang, eye on the target and wham, one shot, one gunshot and BAM! Andy, John, Zoe and David, here I am!

Cometh the hour, cometh the Absterå hopefully!

Siobhan
Having pushed myself to the limit on the training day, I've realised that if I believe I can do something, I stand a much, much better chance of success. I'm feeling revved up and unbelievably motivated - ready for the big performance!

Connie
The challenge this week was to find a story in the song. I'm relieved to say I've found one. I'm very very much looking forward to this Saturday's performance. I think the most important thing is to enjoy this performance. I've discovered the simple, sassy, jazzy side of Maria and I'm loving it. DRUNK ON LOVE!

Aoife
Last week Zoe said she wasn't excited by my voice. This week I'm going to:

1. Show her a completely different side to my voice – sultry and sexy.
2. Give her something to get hot and bothered about.

Meliz
I'm excited, pumped and ready to give a great performance on Saturday night. Everyone will get to see a side of me that they have not yet seenå it's going to be fun, quirky, girly, and energetic and I can't wait!

Helena
Wow, I've had the most amazing week. It gets better and better, I feel I'm so in the swing of things and that my journey's just beginning – I don't ever want to get off this ride. Saturday is what its all about!

Simona
Having extra lessons with the dialect coach, I feel confident about my accent during my performance and then more excited about my song.

I think Connie is too OTT and a bit cocky, she is a gr8 singer but so are Siobhan and Leanne. I'd like Siobhan to win but i don't mind if Leanne or Abi wins either. Keep up the good work and sing your hearts out!

Rachael(15)
Can you really judge how well they will perform or how much energy they have by one assault course? No! Connie is still the best

Mel
I think that all of the Marias are brilliant, all I have to say is that the judges think Leanne isn't ready for The West End... Well if she wasn't ready then why would she be on the show?

ET
Connie can sing - but stand aside...Leanne has it all!!!

ET
Connie can sing - but stand aside...Leanne has it all!!!

Xx Hannah xX
I luv Leanne n I think that she shld go all the way cause she looks gr8, her voice is gr8 n she has the best future. Go Leanne!

Ellie
HELLO Connie is the best she is fun but can be serious i also love Leanna because she can sing and she is self trained but Simonna has to go her accent doesnt fit with the part. Siobhan rocks to lol xxxx Gd luck to every one Ellie

Tim
Abi still has a lot to prove, but I honestly think she can do it! ABI TO WIN!

Jenny
Helena is amazing! Beautiful voice, loads of personality and a sparkling never give up spirit. Just like Maria!

Celia
I love the show but for me it's Connie......I grew up with the Sound Of Music and it still is my favourite film Connie just looks the part for me but I am very fond of Leanne also

Suz
Connie, Meliz, Siobhan and helena seem to have that extra star quality just now. Ultimately I feel that Leanne will be ousted because she does look very young. Simona is good but I sense that she is not really a team player. Really enjoyn the show and Andrew Lloyd webbers many expressions!!!

the baroness
i am jealous of abi's voice the most. and she is such a good virtuous looking girl that she makes me appear a vulture of a woman. i will feel more confident of marrying von trapp if she gets voted out.

Coco
I think Leanne should win. Shes fun and young and really has what it takes to be Maria. Cant wait till Saturday!

Jon Pebble
Connie is only too OTT for a TV program - she's perfect for the stage, and that's where the chosen Maria will have to perform. Connie has more stage-craft than the others put together!

Natasha
I like Siobhan should win she is great!!!!!

Spence
Coonie to win,just from Siobhan. Abi hit bum notes 2 shows runnin. Get her out NOW

sarah
i absoluetly love connie! shes amazin and she and simona are the 2 girls i can relate 2 wen dey perform! simona shudnt let her accent get her down. she is oviously doin sumfin rite else she wudnt stil b der! connie shud win tho bcuz she has the same personlity n manerisms as maria! CONNIE TO WIN!!!!!

Tessa
Seeing Meliz in the bottom two was a real shock for me. Although her performance on Saturday night wasn't great, I think she was better than most people. I want either Siobhan or Meliz to win.

Leslie
Cheer leader I am not BUT..... Aoife ! Aoife! Aoife! Aoife! Aoife! Aoife! AOIFE!!!!!

Becky
I think this programme has been great, i can't wait to see the show in London with the final Maria whoever she is! But, I am supporting Connie. I think she looks the part, sounds the part, and acts the part! This is her chance to shine:)

Helen
Siobhan is an amazing talent. She has a great voice, she connects with the audience, she remains humble and has the likeability factor. She is A* grade for me.

Kirsty
connie is too over the top, siohan to win

Dave Cole
I am sure some of them could do it naturaly well. I wonder who the person is who had to put the most effort in, the one who climbed a tree a scraped her knee but got up and carried on despite not being as physical as the others! They will be the true winner.

georgia
siobhan is amasing! gold winner! connie is very good too!

Sue Mitchell
THEY ARE ALL STARS BUT FOR ME, CONNIE IS JUST MARIA. SIMONA SHOULD BE EVITA, AOIFE SHOLUD PLAY SANDY, lEANNE WOULD BE GREAT AS LISEL ECT

ANNIE
Abi is the only modern day Maria for me, she looks like a tomboy and sings like an angel.

Hannah
i am really impressed with the way everyones doin i rely hpe connie wins she will always have my vote luv XxXxXxXxXxX

Serena
I think that Siobhan did a brilliant performance last week and is definitely getting better as the weeks go on. But Connie is still top for me, she's just amazing!!

josh
leanne is the best and may not be the quickest to pick things up but has by far the better voice and looks

emily
Helena's performance on Saturday was brilliant, a real turn around from last week, keep it up Helena.

LAURA-KENT
CONNIE SHOULD HAVE WON GOLD! BECAUSE SHE GOES RUNNING ALOT. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT CONNIE! YOU ALWAYS WILL HAVE MY VOTE!

Clare!
i think that helena was the one who said that thing and connie and siobhan are the gold medal winners! luv clare xXx

Stella
In The Sound of Music, if you remember, Maria falls out of a capsizing boat. She emerges with wet hair and clothes. I trust the Marias had to have a go at doing just that on their assault course!! I can imagine Abi, being the tomboy she is, scoring well on that one.
