As well as Danny McFly talking about his Miss England girlfriend Georgia Horsley, this week Danny has also been chatting about his stint as an opera singer on ITV 1’s prime time reality effort, Popstar to Opera Star.
Danny says he’s been working extremely hard for the show and that it’s completely different to performing with McFly. “When I’m in McFly, I’ve got a guitar and my mates. It seems easy looking back at it now. With opera, you’ve got to sing from your eyes and your nose – it’s like learning to sing again.”Danny said vocal coach Katherine Jenkins is a “perfectionist…you wouldn’t mess about with her”. He also commented on his competition, saying rival Vanessa from The Saturdays “is a lovely girl with an ace voice.”, calling Bernie Nolan a “dark horse” and that Jimmy Osmond is “classic, so lovely and down to earth.”
On Friday’s debut show, Danny was the first singer to be put through. Blur guitarist Alex James and Vanessa received the lowest amount of votes and as a result were in the bottom two. After equal votes from the judges, it went to who collected the highest amount of public votes, and Vanessa was saved. We know all you Fleckster’s are supporting Danny, as are we, and we wish him the best of luck in the coming weeks, and hope he hits those high notes!
