First of all, Katherine Jenkins (@kjofficial) tweet that all the contestants will be back tonight to @SuperRecords. That means: most likely, Danny is going to be there. So watch the finale tonight. Okay guys?
According to @poptoopera, the celebs will be in the audience. So, Danny probably wouldn’t be singing. Here’s their tweet:

Also, look out for the other celebs who are returning and will be in the audience tonight…

On to the news.
First News interviewed Danny when he was still competing in Popstar to Operastar. Here are some parts of the interview.

Do you mean busy with McFly? What are the band up to now?

We’ve just come back from America. In fact, I missed a bit of the opera training because we’ve been writing songs there. Now, we’ve got loads of songs ready. We’ve just got to start recording it now.

What will the new album be like?

We’re working with people like Tricky Stewart who has worked with Beyoncé and Katy Perry so it’ll be quite different for us. But that’s what is so good about it! We wanted to get different influences and perspectives and get a new groove going, but it’ll still be McFly. For us, because we’ve been writing all these new songs since our last album, it doesn’t feel that different but, because you’ve not heard anything since our last album, Radioactive, it’ll sound like there’s been a big change. I’m excited about it because I think it’ll appeal to our fans and to a lot more people. We could just be safe McFly and carry on doing what we were doing, but we want to take risks, be successful and have everyone enjoy our music. We want to take that step and we want to be as big as Beyoncé!

And when can we expect McFly back?

We’re recording soon but the boys are getting on with other things while I do the show. Dougie will be thinking of ideas for the tour and Tom will be writing more songs, waiting for me to come back to finish them off together. I’m not sure exactly when we’ll be back but it’ll be a good year for McFly I think.

Thanks No Go Queen for the link.

It’s the end of the road of our Danny Jones on Popstar to Operastar.
But, as Danny said: I’ve learnt a lot and now I’m off on holiday!

Tom also tweeted after Danny voted out:

Ah well, he did brilliantly and thanks to everyone who voted over the past few weeks. Opera is over. Now it’s mcfly time!!!!!

Does McFly time sound great to you? Cause it certainly sounds great to us.

Here’s the video of his performance:

Here’s excerpt of an article from RTE:

“Meat Loaf’s a lovely guy. He always comes and talks to me.”

“It’d be amazing to work with him – how cool would that be?”

“Meat, can I be on your new album please?”

Speaking about working on his own on the show, he said: “I could never be a solo artist, it’s more like work when you’re on your own.”

It’s just like Star Wars episode 3. Will Danny make it to episode 6? I honestly don’t know.
Last night, we saw Danny battling his nerves singing the well-known Time To Say Goodbye. He was on the bottom 2!I know it’s pretty hard to believe. Fortunately for us, all four judges refused to say goodbye to Danny. Thus, we’re going to see him for another week.

In the meantime, enjoy some screencaps we made for you. Even made some screencaps of his lyrics’ cheat sheet. Click on the picture below to see the album.

Danny Jones, the frontman from popular band McFly, is the current favourite to win Popstar To Operastar and he can be backed at 3/1 with Betfred. He has always been the favourite to win and looks very solid at he head of the betting but there have been many other changes. Former second and third favourites, Darius Campbell and Kym Marsh, are now out to 9/2 with SkyBet and 5/1 with Paddy Power and Bet365 respectively. Two singers have jumped in front of them, the news second favourite is Bernie Nolan who is 4/1 with Bet365 and VC Bet whilst Marcella Detroit is 9/2 with Stan James but as short as 5/2 with SkyBet.

Danny did a live chat 2 days ago on Popstar to Operastar website. They posted an article about it.
Here it is.

Danny set to rap?

Singing in the shower, missing the McFly boys and a future in rap – get the gossip from Mr Jones’ live chatWhen we wrenched rising operatic star Danny Jones from rehearsals and sat him down at a laptop for a chat with you all, he was quick to quash queries regarding a potential solo career. “It would suck to be a solo artist,” he wrote. “I miss the boys being beside me.” Awww. And that’s not the only thing Danny finds hard when he’s warbling in front of the nation. “The hardest thing is learning the Italian,” he added. “It’s sooooo hard, especially when your from Bolton!” Quick as a flash, sparks flew across keyboards everywhere, as you all delved into ways that Danny could practice behind closed doors. And he wasn’t afraid to admit his top secret tactics. “I have sung opera in the shower,” he revealed. “I recommend it because not only do you think you sound amazing because of all the echo, but the steam is good for your voice.” You heard it here first people. And the crowd went wild for the steam-enhanced high notes when Danny belted out his first operatic number. And now that he’s mastered the art of vibrato, could we tempt the star to branch out into yet another challenging genre? “I would like to try… er, rapping!” he replied, with a glint in his eye. And that, Danny Jones fans, is a whole other show.

See Tom, Dougie, and Harry there? (:

And, what did the judges think?
Judges Comments

Katherine: Swoon!

Rolando: Danny you worked very hard and this was a dangerous piece for him. He really kept the operatic voice and I’m very proud of you.

Meat Loaf: Danny I applaud you, you were there every moment.

Lawrence: I thought that was a very mature performance. It was all about opera and pop Danny was left behind.

And the verdict? Danny is through! This means he has to suffer another week of opera singing. lol.
Btw, I’m uploading screencaps from last night.
We also made few screencaps from other contestants as well. Do you want us to upload these too? Otherwise, we’ll upload those with Danny and McFly only.

Edit: Screencaps added.

Danny and #votedannymcfly made it into the trending topics last night.
