Derek Is the One Andrew Lloyd Webber Wants!

So no matter what happens to Derek Keeling from here on out, he can remember this night for as long as he lives—the night that Andrew Lloyd Webber said he was the best choice to play Danny.

Holy crap!

I had actually already written a post about how I was worried for Derek since I didn’t think he gave the strongest performance, but after hearing those words from Webber (and Kathleen Marshall, the Broadway show’s producer), I threw my draft completely out the window.

For the record, I still don’t think that Derek was the best performance, but I defer to the opinion of the great Lord Webber. And I hope everyone watching will as well.

If you missed it, Derek performed “Footloose” from “Footloose: The Musical.” It was a performance that played to his strengths—his dancing and his showmanship. And let’s just face it. He totally looks the part.

But with this strange sing-off twist where the two people America eliminated got to stay, anything can happen. So Derek will need all of the votes he can get.

To vote for Derek, you can go online at and vote up to 10 times per e-mail address until 3 a.m. Monday. You can also vote by phone at 1-888-IVOTE-03 up to 200 times until 11 p.m. Sunday.

We’ll get the results next Sunday at 7 p.m…
