somewhere over the rainbow

Somewhere Over

the Rainbow, II



wish gentleman ladies and gentlemen
melt lullaby rainbow
dare wake up the one and only
cloud trouble heard of
lemon chimney lemon drop
telly bluebird all the time
Ritz corridor autograph
card naughty Father’s Day
chick rubbish incredible
turn into emotion wreck
Kleenex mature for your age
brilliant silence once again
guts (2) well done winner
give her a hand (2) one more time





Ladies and gentleman, it’s the one and only: Connie Talbot.

Somewhere over the rainbow, way up high
There’s a land that I’ve heard of once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow, skies are blue
And the dreams that you dare to dream,
Really do come true.

Someday I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
Away above the chimney tops,
That’s where you’ll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly
Birds fly over the rainbow
Why then, oh why can’t I?
If happy little bluebirds fly beyond the rainbow
Why, oh why can’t I?

Connie Talbot.

Wow. That was fantastic!

I want to get down on my knees Connie because I want a little chat with you.
That was great. Is that your favorite song?
Yeah? Why is it your favorite?
Because my mom used to sing it with me all the time.

Now it’s been quite a week for you Connie. You’re really famous now. You’ve been on telly and everything. Have you started signing autographs now? Who have you been signing autographs for?
I had to sign for Chicky Ritz.
Have you signed for Chicky Ritz? That’s fantastic. And I know that there’s something special you wanted to say, wasn’t it? Go ahead.
I wanted to say “Happy Father’s Day to my Dad! That’s my dad.”

That’s lovely. That’s lovely. There he is.

Connie, did you buy him a card? You’ve changed.

What did you think, George?

Connie, I’ve got a big problem with you tonight: You’ve been very naughty. Very, very naughty. Do you know why?


You keep making Amanda cry.
You keep making her cry. You’ve got to stop it. Your voice is so lovely, she keeps crying. Alright, so stop it.

She said to me today in the corridor, “I’m going to make you cry!”
Did you?
I said you won’t; I’m going to be strong tonight. I wasn’t. I was rubbish and I cried again. Exactly.

Now Connie, the thing about you is that people think you’re just a little six-year old who sings okay. You don’t sing okay, you sing BEAUTIFULLY. And everyone loves your voice.

You are, as you know, the favorite to win tonight, and it’s going to take something incredibly special to beat you tonight. Incredibly special.

I mean I think I’ve said it: you’ve turned me into an emotional wreck.

Do you want some Kleenex or something?

Yes! I will have some Kleenex. In a minute. You’ve got the sweetest voice. And I’ve listened to every single word you said. You’re so mature for your age. I can’t get over it. You’re SUPER talented, as Simon would say.


Connie, I’m very, very proud of you, tonight, sweetheart. Because you know, when you can create this kind of like, incredible silence when you sing, it’s because everyone is listening to every word.

And I always said, once again, I want to talk to you like an adult, I don’t want to only say to you, you’re a great singer, you’ve got guts.

You’re brilliant.

And Connie you enjoy it all, do you? You love it. She loves singing. Well done.

If Connie is your winner, the number to call is 09011 32 22 05

But the lines will not open till the end of the show. Give her a big hand one more time everyone. Connie Talbot!
