Sam, Susanne complete Idol's final lineup

By
The final two places of Pop Idol 2003 have been taken by Sam and Susanne this evening.

Most of the eight wildcards received less than spectacular reviews from the judging panel, save for the two ultimate winners as well as Danielle and surprise last-minute contender Jason.

During the live results show Pete revealed the judges' choice for the first wildcard place, explaining that it wasn't a unanimous choice but that the person in question had put in a "consistent performance" throughout the competition. Consequently it was Sam who was named as the first to go through, leaving the remaining seven to sweat it out for the public vote.

Sam removed, the top three with the public were announced. Coming in third with 10.4% was Jason, marginally behind Danielle on 13.5%. It came as no surprise that in first position was Susanne with a massive 27.2% of the vote, claiming the last place in the top twelve.

Next week all twelve will perform live together for the first time - with a themed show featuring songs by the contestant's personal idols - but at the end of the evening two will be eliminated from the competition.
