Dorothy colour


Amy Diamond was a Dorothy through to the live finals, but left Week 1. She was a former model, but gave up her job to go on to Over The Rainbow.


Amy's journey down the yellow brick road started when she was six years old, when she sang "Over the Rainbow" to her music teacher, and discovered her ability to sing. She had lessons at college to further develop her voice, and took acting and dancing classes to become more of an all-rounder.

She has danced on cruise ships, enjoyed a successful modelling career (including work for The Sun and Nuts). She also sang for a production company that has toured the world - she has visited China, America and Canada, but she's always doing lots of auditions trying to make her big break. She also had a small part in the BBC One series Hustle.

Amy is very close to her family, and loves visiting them and their new one year old puppy called Teddy Pom Poms.

Judges' Comments

Sheila: "Well, Amy is a fantastic performer and very talented. But what worries me is well, Dorothy is a girl who looks at things straught in the eye. And she never uses gile, she never uses girliness. If she DID, the relationship with the wizard and the three men on the road might become rather suspect and rather dodgy. (crowd laughs) It's got to be a girl who is ABSOLOUTLEY straight, doesn't flutter her eyelashes and I think you find that difficult to strip that away. On the other side, I would like to see you do something where you don't fall back on ANY of those things."

John: "Amy, I'll let you in to a little secret, I really like you. And I've really championed you through this show but you're gonna have to start being less MTV, more West End, okay? (Amy nods) We need less Diamond, more Dorothy."

Charlotte: "Uh, Amy that was really good, better than I thought it would be. You've got a really really lovely voice, I'd like you to straighten it out a bit, less R&B, you don't always have to riff. Don't always fall back on that."
