Watched the show tonight with an open mind as my previous favourite (Nancy Nancy) didn't make it through to the finals.

I thought that Niamh gave a really good performance and and outsung some of the "professionals". I hope she does well in the competition.

I've met Niamh when i did Music Theatre 4 Youth's production of Joseph in Coleraine, Northern Ireland last year.

She is the kindest and sweetest person you could ever met and so happy for her for all her success and wish her luck.

She was one of the few I liked tonight, I thought she gave a great peformance. However, I agree with Saturn, I didn't see a Nancy. I know it's only the first week and she'll start to develop the rough, raw qualities needed, but anyway, she sang brilliantly tonight.

Niamh's definitely my favourite. She's so pretty! Beautiful skin, hair, eyes, mouth — the lot. And that's just her appearance, she is a fantastic performer too. I wonder if she's too cute to be Nancy? If she doesn't get this, I'm sure she will get some kind of role. (I would definitely give her one.)

I hope she stays in pink because it really suits her!

Oh and I'm glad someone else made this thread. Saved me making one!

You are right she is very pretty. And in person she is so down to earth and easy to get on with. Her acting is fantastic and so is her voice so if the public do not choose her for nancy she will definitely land herself a different role!

p.s just to let you all know I will be getting the result straight after it is announced on Saturday night. I will start a thread tomorrow on it and let y'all know as soon as I do so you won't have to wait until Sunday!

Don't go posting spoilers up unannounced though! I definitely don't want to know the results before I watch the show. Ruins the show for me.

a family friend of mine knows Niamh! apparently she's a lovely girl and her parents are too.

there's also loads of flyers up in Ballynahinch which would be about half an hour from where Niamh lives

It's still early so I don't have a favourite yet but Niamh is one of my top 4.

She was great last week and again tonight. A good singer who also has good stage presence.

I hope that Niamh stays in for a while and continues to show us what she can do as it looks like she has real star potential.

Having backed Niamh down from 20/1 to 8/1 I am glad to see that ALW seems thrilled with her performances so far.

To all the Niamh fans:

Niamh is one of the performers I am supporting this year and I have very solid reasons to do so. Niamh is a product of the Elaine Page school that has close ties to Andrew LLoyd Webber and she has already proven that she can both sing and act AT THE SAME TIME. Very few contestants can do this and ALW has already noticed this.

I have placed on the front page of our website (click on my name to go to my homepage) other pieces of evidence showing, ALW's reactions to her performances. It is a pecularity of ALW's to open his mouth, to sigh and to get carried away during some performances and this year is no different. There are 2 clips of ALW's reaction to Niamh singing (each of the last 2 weeks) and both times he shows his emotions very clearly. Aside from what he says in judgement, these 2 clips are very powerful. No other performer this year has evoked these reactions.

When the 4 younger girls had to sing again for the Judges, ALW declared one of them "World Class". Most people mistakenly thought of Jessie as the person he meant. They are wrong. The point at which the 3 judges showed an emotional reaction to the performances was after the last girl (Niamh) had sung. This clip is also on the website.

I have backed Niamh in from 20/1 to 9/1 (still available at Skybet) and she is still a great bet to reach the final.

wow man, well said

I adore this girl, I truly hope she wins it, people slag her off for being young or whatever but so what- she'd make the best Nancy there by far

I agree with the "World Class" comment, although my mum thought he meant the kind of bigger girl (forget her name), tho I knew it was Niamh, they all cried at her performance

GO NIAMH!!!

I hope she wins

Why should people say she is too young?
Niamh is 17yo, the exact same age as Nancy in the Dickens book.
