Meanwhile eliminated Claire Richards commented: “Thanks so much to everyone that voted last night, a bit gutted I don’t get to sing another week but good luck to Joe & Cheryl for the final!”
Joe and Cheryl will go head to head to compete for the Popstar to Operastar 2011 title this weekend with a range of performances, including singing with the show's mentors.
