Lord Lloyd-Webber moves in mysterious ways, and his next casting show was made for ITV. Superstar looked to fill the title role in a new production of Jesus Christ Superstar.
As is traditional in Lloyd Webber casting shows, a panel of celebrity experts assisted his deliberations. Jason Donovan had previously starred in a version of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Melanie C toured with Blood Brothers, and David Grindrod is a professional casting director. The latter was replaced by Dawn French for the live shows.

"Jesus Christ Superstar" is variously described as a musical and a rock opera. The project began life as a concept album, telling a dramatic story through rock songs. It was subsequently adapted for the stage, gently expanding the accepted boundaries of musical theatre.
Not to be confused with the classic sports show Superstars.
And who could forget ITV's previous casting show, Grease is the Word?
