i think connie has been consistent every week but now i think siobhan is growing more confident with each week

moi
connie HAS to win!

catherine
My mum is going mental and really wants you to win!

Becky
Me and my family are going 2 see the show 3 weeks after it opens and we'll be very dissapointed if Connie's not Maria. We noticed connie from the auditions and shes the best every week CONNIE 2 WIN!!!

Hilary
Connie is by far the best. She is a good allrounder both vocally and in her acting ability.She has presence on the stage. Go for it Connie your my Maria.

Debbi
Connie is by far the best on the show and would make a perfect Maria. She's always professional and delivers every single week. Her voice is totally controlled and she's a great actress. Connie to win!!

Geraint
Connie, there is no doubting that you are a good all round Musical Theatre Actor, but NEVER, EVER forget where you came from! You were good as the princess in Aladdin at the Torch (I was there!)but all the best for your future, you never know, you may be back at the Torch Theatre!!

Ruth
Connie IS Maria!!!!

*Hana*
Connie you are the best there - you look just like a Maria and you are definately the most talented! I have voted for you every week and I think that the songs you sing are fantastic! Go Connie!!! xxx

Jenaffer Smith
Go connie, you can do it, keep up the good work and you'll be up in space before you know it.

Ann
You deserve to win, you tick all the boxes. Good luck

anonomous
connie is a amazing singer but she's just not maria.

anonomous
connie can sing very nice but she's to proffesional ,she has a good chance in coming in 2nd though

Katie
Connie, you are streets ahead of the rest - You ARE Maria!! We've got tickets booked for March, with the hope of seeing you perform as Mrs Van Trapp! You are a shining star - no more bridesmaid for you! Good luck!! See you in March...?

Lucie
Wow, Connie! I think you are amazing and you should defently get the part! Well done and keep up the good work!

annoymous
she is a really good singer n should probably win the part of maria but her eyes go REALLY wide and it looks wrong

Jim
For the first time in my 60 years, I'm TV voting, for you Connie. You are my Maria, let us know where your performing, after The Sound of Music!

Jim

Connie's fan!!
Connie - you are incredibly talented and absolutely perfect for this role. You are doing a brilliant job and I am sure if it had been an ordinary audition process you would have won the part. Keep strong and keep that sparkle flashing!!

Brenda
The remaining Maria's have great voices but you have such an expressive face and you look as if you have the stamina to become Maria. Good luck

Robert
Hi Connie, just to say you are quite clearly the girl for the part, I strongly suspect however that politics of a more amateur gir; may take precedence esp as Andrew seems to have a more pro leading lady to do the bulk of the showa - kind of makes this whole thing a joke?

zadok
you are great and should win by a mile if there is any justice :)

Martin
Connie, you`re by far and away the best there. If you don`t win this, then there`s something seriously wrong somewhere!

ELLE
IF theres any justice in this world today.. YOU WILL WIN! You Are Perfect.. Julie Andrews Might Aswell Give Up!!

connie
connie you are the best ever i really hope you win i will be sad if not please win for me im your biggest fan!!! good luck!! xXxXxXx

SwottyGuy
Connie is the hottest babe on the show! Shes the best singer aswell ;)

Emma

debbie
connie you are the maria because you have confidence

JANE

Emma
wooo!! my flatmates and I are obsessed with the show and are backing u all the way! we are actors ourselves and know only someone who has trained or worked in the theatre before will understand and be able to cope with the demands of a West End musical. 8 shows a week - an essex shop girl/fashion student etc couldn't hack that. connie to win! em x

JESS.L.Baker
I said you arent the publics maria and you arent siobhan is she is so the best and is gonna win! sory but there it is but im sure there will be a day when you will be on the west end stage and please dont wave yur arms around wen ur singin it is really annoyin.

Hey Connie you worked with a friend of mine Chloe at a call centre- she says you're wicked and from what I've seen I absolutely love it I think you'd make a fantastic Maria... keep it up girly!!xxx

Can't see why the competition is still running. Connie is by far the obvious choice. She was made for the role.

Connie you are definitely the best out of all the girls. You are an amazing singer and actress, you are just fantastic on stage and i think you would make a great maria. I really hope you win and you will always get my vote! GO CONNIE!

Lisa PEMBS
Well Done Connie,you made the best of the situation you found urself in!! you are the leading lady without a doubt! WELLDONE YOU, fingers crossed for this saturday! GOOD LUCK! XX

laura
CONNIE AFTER ALL YOUR HARD WORK YOU DERERVE TO WIN. YOU HAVE A NATURAL ABILITY TO DRAW THE CROWD TO YOU. WELL DONE!

Moira
I am a huge Connie fan. She is talented and versatile but most important loves what she is doing and that really comes across. She is capable of lighting up a tv screen and I think she will be sensational on stage.

Camrose
We just want Connie to win, win, win. She has worked so hard for this chance. She has got what it takes.

Natalie
Brilliant performace on saturday connie , u were great !!!! im voting for you all the way xxx

Shelley
You are doing fantastic Connie.And it does not matter whether you win or lose.xxx

Ken
I've watched the show from the start of the "Knockout" stage. I must admit before I heard anyone sing you stood out. There is a sparkle about you. When I eventually heard you sing and saw the acting I though why are they bothering to go any further. For me there can only be one winner. I haven't seen anyone to match you. You are professional, appealing and consistant in your performances. However, don't become over confident and let it slip. All the very best MARIA!

Heather Spangler
Connie- I've really liked you the whole way through but this saturday i think you were rubbish. sorry

justin- birmingham
connie is the only one i would pay to see, think that sums it up in one ;-))

LAURA....
CONNIE U R A LEADING LADY. YOU HAVE CONFIDENCE,POWER AND A LOVELY PERSONALITY. THIS SATURDAY I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR U SING A BALLAD. THE BEST OF LUCK. U HAVE MY VOTE!

hello
I think connie isnt right she is 2 full of herself soz x

Hattie
u r derinatly da best. ur performance last saturday wud hav been better if u had danced a bit more. u and leanne were da best 2 start off with but u hav taken over big time now! you should definatley win!!!!!!!! u just stand out from da rest (in a gd way!!)

Gracey
Wow you are so good, you have got the looks, voice and you are excellent at acting i think you are the perfect role. Just a littlt lacking on the stamina side but apart from that you are Maria! You go girl!

Mark
I have already booked my ticket, in the hopes that you are picked as Maria, if anybody else wins especially Simona i will be getting a refund, you are the only one with stage presence and star quality.

Jo
Probably not the best song choice for connie on saturday night - more appropriate for Simona to sing that particular song - still nevermind you did you best with the song choice - you're still the best choice for Maria though - best of luck - hope you have a better song choice next week

Michelle
Connie! Where's the sparkle? What happened? I think you are the perfect choice for Maria, you were amazing in weeks 1 & 2. Keep fighting for it!

Hannah Collins
Connie must win !!!!!

AMY UNITT
THOUGH YOU WERE BRILLANT IM 10 YRS OLD AND HOPE YO WIN

LAURA - KENT
CONNIE WELL DONE, IN MOST PEOPLE'S EYES THAT WAS A LEADING LADY PERFORMANCE! THE BEST OF LUCK!

LAURA
JUST WANT 2 SAY BRILLIANT PERFORMANCE SATUDAY CONNIE. KEEP IT UP GIRL I'M VOTING 4 U!
