SO DIANA survives to the semi-final, and I was relieved because I feared a backlash against the 17-year-old was building. Also, Carolyn spoiled my enjoyment of her singing by pointing out that she sounds like Fozzie Bear and now I can’t listen to her without seeing the Muppet stand-up in my head.
Still, good result. Ruth’s time had come and the new favourite must surely be Alexandra, who really is amazing. And don’t you think there’s some similarity in appeal between Eegan (pronounced “Eegan”) and Gareth Gates? And remember what happened to him when the final of Pop Idol came around.
