The search for a new Jesus is hotting up on ITV1's 'Superstar' talent show. On last nights show Nathan James and Roger Wright ended up in the bottom two after both receiving the lowest amount of viewer votes
Both acts chose to perform Love Changes Everything, from Webber's own music Aspects Of Love
For Wright, it was his second time appearing in the bottom two, which in the tradition of talent shows usually doesn't bode well for said performer, but it was Roger's lucky night as Lloyd Webber chose to save him, saying: "Despite a fantastic performance [from Nathan], I've got to save Roger."
With Nathan James making the bottom two for the first time, and giving a praise worthy performance from the big man himself, it still wasn't enough to secure him a place in next weeks semi finals. The decision behind Nathan being axed - although putting in a good performance - seemed like it had more to do with his behaviour backstage and on twitter.
Lloyd Webber told the hopeful: "Nathan, your voice is amazing but I think you need to love the song more than you love yourself. Why do you keep tweeting the things you keep tweeting? I worry what you're going to be like in rehearsal and why did you tweet a picture of yourself wearing a crown of thorns?"
James had indeed tweeted a silly photo of an image of Jesus Christ with a hole cut out where the face should be and in its place a photo of himself.
James reacted to the decision by saying: "This is emotional", adding that the formula for singing success should be to "sing from your heart, that's all you can do".
Host of Superstar Amanda Holden asked James who he thought should go on to win the whole show, he responded: ''That's really tough. But just because he's my best friend and he's supported me through this, thick and thin - I'm going to say Ben."
Tune in for the semi finals tonight at 9pm on ITV1!
