Video: Gary Barlow – backstage and performance from Superstar – July 2012
GARY BARLOW – THE NEXT BEST THING TO JESUS?!
Mr Gary Barlow from Take That appeared on ITV’s ‘Superstar’ last night (23rd July 2012).
Superstar is fronted by Andrew Lloyd Webber as he looks for a new single to play Jesus in his musical Jesus Christ Superstar. The winner will then front the production on an arena tour in the UK.
Gary and Andrew wrote the Jubilee song ‘Sing’ together and reports have suggested that a collaboration between the pair might end up on the new Take That album.
Last nights show was full of drama with Nathan James being booted off the show after being branded as ‘over confident’ and ‘egotistical’ by Lord Webber.
The video below shows Gary Barlow behind the scenes with the five remaining Jesus’s before they perform ‘Greatest Day’ with Gary on the piano.
The performance elicited many responses on Twitter – some were annoyed at Gary for performing the song without the rest of the band whilst others praised his fact not to sing the track.
