For those of you outside the UK, here is an update on Tony Perry's performance last Saturday. Unfortunately, he didn't win the overall competition, which was won by "Dusty Springfield" with a dead-on rendition of "Son Of A Preacher Man".
Once again, however, Tony did us proud, and I, for one, enjoyed a great Saturday night's TV! Tony looked like he was really enjoying himself, and after all, it was a wonderful achievement to get into the last 10 from the 30,000 people who auditioned for the show.
Here is what he had to say about the night :-
Appearing on the show has been a great experience, I've met some lovely people and achieved something that 30,000 other hopefuls dreamt of when they applied for the last series. I was lucky and got through the auditions. The other performers were all lovely people and ALL just as overwhelmed by the whole thing as myself. It was brilliant!!
On a positive note 35,000 people voted for me in the Live Final, I won my heat, and I got to appear on national TV twice in 6 months. I have had the support of my friends and family, local and national press and radio as well as Bowienetters and Wonderworlders.
There is only one David Bowie, but its great fun pretending.
Little Wonder are playing in St. Albans on Thursday which we are all looking forward to. We had a great time there last May and as I got to keep my outfit, I think I will probably wear the shoes again for the second time this week.
Tony, you did a great job! We wish you every success for the future.
