Warrington singer David Hunter voted off ITV show Superstar
WARRINGTON'S David Hunter has been voted off ITV's Superstar tonight.
The 27-year-old was one of four left in the competition to find a leading man for the forthcoming arena tour of Jesus Christ Superstar before this evening's show.
He received high praise from the judges after singing Macy Gray's I Try.
Andrew Lloyd Webber said if he was producing Sunset Boulevard he would cast him as his leading man tomorrow, and added: "You are the great actor-singer that the West End needs."
But following a public vote, David faced being in the bottom two for the second time and after singing Boyzone's No Matter What in the final showdown, Andrew decided to save Wirral semi-finalist Rory instead.
Speaking after being voted off, he said: "It has been an amaxing experience. I wish it had been that little bit longer but I've had a proper giggle."
The former Bridgewater High School pupil spoke to the Warrington Guardian earlier today as he was about to go on stage for a dress rehearsal.
He said: “I'm overwhelmed by the response I've had.
“Thank you to every last one of you who has voted and spread the word.
“You've made me very proud to say I'm a Warrington lad through and through! Thank you.”
Do you think Andrew Lloyd Webber made the right decision?
