Leanne While your age inevitably told in the end for Andrew, your performances and your approach each week were simply fantastic. Given the vocal training some of the others contenders have had, you more than held your own. Well done, and good luck for the future.

Hayley (go leanne!!)
Hi, you are soo talented ut connie is maria for me!!

Matt from Rhyl
Your voice is amazing and your just so pretty that you are the ultimate stage actress. Even though Maria was not for you... you are deffently in for a career on stage. xx

Emma
Im so surprised LEANNE went she woz fab next week im hoping that connie and someone else will go its just so hard because I just love siohban , Aiofe , Abi and Helena i couldnt posibly choose which one to go or which one to win !

melissa
i am so upset you were knocked out. YOU ARE A WONDERFUL SINGER. remember this and please dont give up. (you were better than helena and the public thought so too)

anna
You should NEVER have gone! it is a joke and andrew lloyd webber needs his ears testing!!! I cried when you went, it is so stupid you could have won. Well done you were absolutly briliant and i hope you go on to do great things and show them all !!! xxxxx

Tilly Darragh
i don't think you are too young, but i think that you need a bit more training before you can take on a big role like that. i think you have a wonderful voice, considering you have had hardly any training. there was one time when i went off you, and that was when i saw you act. but when i know that you're through, i still think to myself "Yess!" because i know there is hope for you still to play in the sound of music. I Also think that you should play the role of Liesl because you are very much like her. you would suit her very well. best of luck with your future career take care xxxxxxxx

Sophie :)
Leanne u r great don't let any bad comments from the judges pull u down coz u r 1 of the best singers i've ever heard.KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!

cody
leanne i don't think you're great i know you're great you can do it!!!!

Marie
I think Leanne has the most potential out of all the contestants. I am also an Essex girl, so am backing her all the way!!

Alice Mayne
LEANNE HAS ALWAYS BEEN MY FAVOURITE. SHE SHOULD DEFINETLY WIN!!!

Alice

shara + samia
LEANNE, UNFORTUNATELY WE MISSED THE LIVE SHOW BUT WE STILL MADE SURE YOU GOT OUR VOTES. LOOK FOWARD TO SEE YOU SING NXT WEEK! GOOD LUCKxxx

Kathy
Leanne you have a great voice but are far too young looking for this part. But what a great learning curve. I hope Abi gets the part as every week she shows she can sing, dance, actand she has that some thing special i just can't put my finger on. Good luck.

Nick Wells
You have an amazing voice!!! Well Done

jo - stoke
im only 16 but i think u are the best by far i think u hav really gd talent and will go far i ope u go all the way and win i got 2 admitsimona is awful and needs to go next week.

john
you have a good voice i think you should win

Julie Wulie
L is for lovely E is for Energetic A is for Actress N is for Neat N is for Natural E is for Effervescent

Jude
Leanne is a true star who CAN act and CAN dance, but is a victim of programme editing.

Joshua
it was ok and you are a really good singer i hope you win

Anita Wright
Leanne I heard you sing "Time to say goodbye" at a friends wedding you really blow everyone away, I'm sure if ALW let you sing that Zoe couldnt say all your songs sound Sameee. We are all voting for you.

Ricky
Its very rare to such natural talent and Leanne you just ooze it!!!!!!!! We are all voting for you.

Heather Spangler
Leanne- You were great!! I loved 9 to 5 there was nothing wrong with the way you walk i think andrew was mad when he said that!!

Abigail
Leanne you are a fantastic performer but you are just too young for this role. They would need to go for a very young Liesl indeed if you were to be Maria. I just wouldn't be convinced. You would be a brilliant Liesl though! Good luck!

Roxy
Hello again! Just to say well done for doing so fantastic on saturday. You have talent written all over you darling!

DEE
Hi i just wanted to say that i think leanne is great! And would make a perfect maria i dont understand Zoe's comment about her being samee because she has never picked her songs and it is obvious she has been given songs that sound the same to try and sabatage her act give her something different to let her show her other sides!! We love you leanne!!

Chris N
When this finishes you should percieve it as the beginning not the end of the show, whatever the outcome.Your ability and talent will keep us entertained for many years to come.

Maddie - 12
leanne your really gr8, i dont care what any1 says, your never 2 young 2 sing! i reckon u could b maria. please dont make anymore bad comments about aofie tho! shes just as amazing as u r. xxx

adele
leanne you are my star because you rock and you are better than connie

dionne
you are one of my favourites to win the show and be mother maria to those 7 kiddies good luck

Niamh McP
I think this programme is bout giving a oppertunity to some one who could have been missed through the normal theatre auditions for me that person is you. Connie has had experience of the theatre worls and it would be great to see you triumph over her. x

Conlan Aged 6
Think your the best really want you to win!!!

Heather
I really enjoy this program and think that Connie will win...however there is another young shining light and that is Leanne- i am so sorry to say this i do not think you will win but in three years time- you are so gonna be on those westend stages-you have talent that Connie also has- pity your not 3 years older.

Abbie Sansom
Leanne, you was always a great singer and drama queen at school, we always knew you'd get somewhere, you're doing so well keep it up hun!!!

Sam
I do think you comments saturday about the other singers were a bit harsh but you do have a good voice for someone with no training.

Ian
Since Leanne opened the first show of "Maria" she was an instant winner for me. She's an excellent singer, performer and she's hot hot hot! Leanne to win.

Kerry

Lianne
I remember you at school, we always knew you'd hit the big time one day!! I've been voting for you from the start, you're the best and you deserve to win. You may be young, but you're voice makes up for that in every way. You'll go far, you're a natural and you always have been. Well done and keep up the good work.

Merlin
Hiya, some more support from the Netherlands here. The others all seem to be more or less set in their ways whereas you still have room for improvement. Use it well and you might just find yourself the career of a lifetime! All the best! Merlin

Lorna

Hi, I think the show is fab. It is better than any other show that I've watched for a long time. Leanne I think you are just great and your age does not pose a problem for the role of Maria as you a a brilliant actress and singer. Ever since I watched you on the first show me and my twin sister knew we would vote for you every week. You perform so well and you deserve to go all the way.... you are an inspiration to me and i am sure many others... keep going girl... xxxxxx

Cecilia
Leanne is very intelligent as well as talented. She knows what she needs to do and she does it superbly. She never lets the audience or the panel down. She gives 100% every time. I think she is the perfect Maria

roxy
go leanne! thats prob excatly the right attittude!!! u rock, girl!

lucy
youre the best maria i think you are the part

Hayley
OMG I met leanne at "YOU ME AND DUPREE" film premiere, She was Soooo Nice, and i got her autograph, and she sang for a group of us "Favourite things" and when i was calling for Connie, she said "Shall i just call her for you, she's my room mate so she has to listen to me" lol,... aww... Connie or Leanne to Win!!!!!!

Daisy 12
I love u and your wonderfull voice. I want to be just like u when I'm older, becouse you are the most beautiful person in the world. LEANNE EVERYONE LOVES YOU

Emma T
Leanne is a fantastic performer and will certainly go far in this career, but unfortunately I don't think her strategy of trying to be more mature is going to work. She simply looks too young, and I don't think there's a way of solving that for this role. She would look like one of the children and Captain von Trapp would be accused of cradle snatching! Sorry Leanne, but I don't just think you fit the bill for this role. Such a shame you're not 5 years older...

roxy
sing you star

emmi finch
leanne u know what u got non of the others have which is pure talent

Yvonne Bijsterveld
Hi, I just love the concept of the show! It's the best I've seen in a long time!! You'll definitely solve the problem... For me Maria should be Leanne or Connie sincerely, Yvonne (Rijswijk-The Netherlands)
