    I couldn’t agree more with this. However, I do have one comment to add that imho the BBC really should take into account: this format has been sold to other countries, including the Netherlands. The Dutch version was a very popular and well watched program, ‘in spite of’ (I personally would say ‘because of’) the fact that musical numbers were heavily featured. So featuring musical songs is not at all a means to cause a drop in audience number. On the contrary, with all those ‘untrained talents singing pop songs’ on TV (Idols, X factor), a show featuring musical songs performed by professional musical artists will stand apart and get an audience of its own.

    Another means in which the Dutch version stood apart was the fact that all final contestants had had professional musical theatre training and most had experience. That too improved the quality of the performances. However, I’ll grant that perhaps English performers might be reluctant to make an appearance, especially after how the professional ones were treated this series.

    Very good idea!
    I think you should contact the BBC on this
