Jonathan Ansell Receives Jesus Christ Superstar Backlash
09 Jul 2012
Former G4 singer Jonathan Ansell received a backlash from judges and unhappy TV viewers after the singer admitted he was ready to throw in the towel with ‘tale of two cities’ for a chance to play in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s latest musical adventure – Jesus Christ Superstar.
After he appeared on the second show on Saturday, judges were unimpressed with attempts to ‘jazz up’ some of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s songs, and he was given a verbal warning by judge Mel C and sent packing.
Since then, viewers of the ITV show were quick to vent their anger towards the star and this has left the singer ‘stunned’.
