Ben Forster Wins Place On Jesus Christ Superstar
26 Jul 2012
After weeks of singing it out for the part of Jesus Christ, the winner was finally revealed with 31 year old Sunderland stage-school graduate Ben Forster winning a place on the Jesus Christ Superstar arena tour.
The star studded judging panel included Mel C, Dawn French, Amanda Holden and the token “mean guy” in the form of Jason Donavan.
Ben Forster went on to beat 24 year old Rory Taylor and Roger Wright after he sang Queen’s “Who Wants To Live Forever”. He said:
"I can't believe it, I wasn't expecting this to happen in my lifetime".
He joins the Tim Minchin (Judas Iscariot), DJ Chris Moyles (King Herod) and Mel C (Mary Magdalene) on the Jesus Christ Superstar Arena Tour which kicks on the 21st September 2012 at The O2 Arena, London.
On the last show of the TV series, Mel C sang “I Don't Know How To Love Him” with Andrew Lloyd webber accompanying her on the piano.
