This whole thing is a travesty....it's like U2 trying to replace Bono...it just won't go.

Smart marketing, and they've found a way to make a living from an eight-year open audition...but really, it's damn sad.

The new lead singer of INXS is J.D. .

I thought he was able to sing the INXS songs the best out of all the rest of the contestents which is of course also why INXS probably settled on him, even though overall he probably was not the best singer of the entire group.

Oh, I agree. Van Halen is one of the few bands I can think which has pulled off the replacement of a singer. But given the choices on this show, and since they are going to choose a new singer anyway, I would prefer JD.

The funny thing about reality television is that the winner is usually the biggest loser of them all, while the runners up can often detach themselves from the show, while still taking advantage of the exposure.

I think it's despicable. Taking a respected band and turning them into American Idol

SPOILER ALERT:

















Gah, talk about playing it safe

Oh well, it's probably not Marty's style anyway, hearing that new INXS song. He's got a lot of talent so I'm sure we'll be hearing a lot more from him!

I think this was a brilliant move by INXS. INXS when Michael Hutchence died in 1997 had fallen totally out of the spotlight. Their album that year only sold 140,000 copies in the United States and the band was unable to fill the smallest theaters in the country.

The show has pumped life into INXS's catalog and exposed the band to young people who did not even know who INXS was. In fact, I would say this is the most exposure that INXS has received since their album X or maybe even Kick, the height of their success.

The INXS greatest hits album is locked in the top 10 of the Catalog album chart in the United States.

The band have their new album ready to go and just need J.D. to lay down the vocal tracks. Album will be out at the end of November and the tour will start in January.

Of course there are no guarantees, but INXS I think has the singer and new exposure they need to make a significant comeback.

wasn't the other thread about this in the zoo station forum? because it doesn't actually have anything to do with music?
