Jenny Douglas: Over The Rainbow Dorothy

Name
Jenny Douglas
Age
18
Home Town
Scotland
Dorothy Colour
Burgandy

Jenny has always loved to sing, but discovered she had a distinct voice at the age of around six or seven. She is currently halfway through her first year of acting classes and her first year of vocal training at college, following the Estill Voice Training Programme. She once had a singing lesson in New York with David Schaefer, saying "It was amazing, I discovered more about my voice in one hour than in my whole time of singing".

She performed in the travelling Keith Jack Tour, and also attended the Scottish Theatre and Music School. She aspires to be the kind of Dorothy who knows her own mind and isn't afraid to speak out. She would bring "100% individuality to the role".

Jenny is an only child and lives with her mum in Edinburgh, and she returns there every weekend from the halls of residence she lives in. Her father once sang on stage with Stevie Wonder.

Jenny's progress


Show 8


Jenny aimed to impress The Lord with a version of Send In The Clowns from the musical, A Little Night Music.

However she found herself in this week's double eviction sing off with Lauren performing Bridge Over Troubled Water for The Lord. It's a painful decision and he choose to save Lauren so she waves goodbye and sang Over The Rainbow for one final time.

It was musical week and the Dorothys came together for an electrifying version of Defying Gravity from the hit musical, Wicked. Their mission performance was Talk To The Animals.

As part of Big Band week Jenny wanted to challenge John's previous comments with her version of Feeling Good. It worked, as John said, she had got her Mojo back.

She went on to use that Mojo in Don't Rain On My Parade and the Dorothy mash up of Well, Did You Evah, Get The Party Started and Wild Thang. She impressed the panel and escaped the sing off for another week.

Last week John said that he 'didn't believe Jenny's performance'. She changed his mind with her heart felt version of Duffy's Warwick Avenue?

Group performances this week started with the Dorothys opening the show with a unique version of The Tinman's If I Only Had A Heart, from The Wizard of Oz. Jenny, Emilie, Stephanie and Lauren performed The Deadwood from Calamity Jane. Charlotte performed Enough is Enough (No More Tears) with the Dorothys and then they mashed up Lady Gaga and Fred Astaire with A Fine Romance, Bad Romance Just Dance and Paparazzi.
