Superstar Finalists in Majorca Tonight

The third episode of Superstar tonight is on ITV1 at 8:00 pm and sees the remaining contestants in the running to play Jesus in Andrew Lloyd Webber's new arena tour of Jesus Christ Superstar on the Island of Mallorca.

They are staying at the Lord's holiday home in Deia which is a small, traditional coastal village on the northern ridge of the island known for its literary and musical residents. 10 will be sent home immediately leaving 20 to sing solo so that ALW can select his final 10 to go through to the live shows for the public to vote for their favourite. But before he makes his final decision the 20 are put on tour buses to make a 25 hour journey acros Europe back to London to sing the same song again for ALW, Jason Donovan and Mel C but this time with a live band.

There are still some West End leading men who have been kept very much in the background on the first two shows which have concentrated more on inexperienced auditionees like plumbers and barmen as they provide good TV.

I know that Oliver Tompsett has pulled out due to his commitments playing Drew in Rock of Ages, but Alex Gaumond (Legally Blonde, We Will Rock You) and Jonathan Williams (alternate John Valjean in Les Miserables) are still in the running.  I also suspect that the very confident(?)  Nathan James with the long blonde locks who didn't make it through his first audition for The Voice and is a member of the Tenors of Rock will get through to the final 10.
