Jade said: “I am unbelievably excited to perform in the final of West End Calling. I am simply so grateful to have the opportunity to stand on a stage and sing, and the fact that I’m going to get to do that on a west end stage is crazy to me.
“The competition is even more special after the pandemic. It gave me my first chance to perform to an audience in almost two years which was the most unbeatable experience.
“I’ve loved how supportive and friendly the vibe always is at the competitions, everybody is so lovely from the contestants to the team! And the judges’ feedback is always so helpful.”
Luke said: “The talent at West End Calling is always amazing but this year is definitely the best. The contestants make it so hard for us to choose who to put through which is a testament to their hard work and professionalism.”
Grace added: “It’s so inspiring to watch so many young performers who are so passionate about musical theatre. It’s only a matter of time before they will be up there in the west end. Good luck for the final!”
