Norwegian hobbit.

In the course of the competition in Norway, he also sang "One" and Stuck. Presumably he's a big fan.

What can I say, I have a friend who lives up in Bergen. I hear stuff through the grapevine.

I dunno, I didn't think the "Beautiful Day" guy was all that bad. He was okay. I particularly liked the Canadian and the South African guys. They were good. I didn't actually call in and vote, but those were my personal favorites. Kelly wasn't bad, either.

The version of "Light My Fire" was...unusual... ...

Did anyone hear the guy "singing" "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For" in the commercial for the new season of American Idol next year? Yeah...I have to go find him and hurt him...or something...

I never once watched Australian Idol. I saw the ads and it all seemed to be people singing Beyonce ... even those of the male persuasion.

Of course I didn't watch World Idol. Just one question though ... did the contestants from non-English speaking countries sing in English? Or in their own languages? Is that not a bit unfair if they do sing in English?

I thought this same thing, it seems the competition is a bit swayed by this important detail.

Only one non-English contestant sang in her native tongue... the Arabian idol from Lebanon (her name escapes me...I guess I don't have every detail of World Idol committed to memory yet )

This was the first Idol competition I've seen (honest it was!!)--personally I think the rejects were funniest to watch because I can relate with them more (ya know, off key and all)

I watched it on German TV today...my favorites were Australian guy - soulful voice - I thought the arrangement of the song was odd though, Kelly Clarkson (incidentally I also noticed her video on MTV) and South African guy who sang Don't wanna miss a thing.
(honorable mentions guy from Holland and the girl from Poland)

Norwegian guy - "hobbit" who sang Beautiful day - has a quite good voice but he screamed too much, dunno why he had to sing the "you thought you found a friend to take you out of this place" part before the first chorus that way.

Haha, the rejects were hilarious-I loved the one guy who was like, "I don't know what the hell I'm singing..."-. And then of course there was Keith...lordy...I feel kinda bad for him, 'cause of all the things he could be remembered for, he'll be known as the worst singer in the world-his parents must be so proud.

But still...did he honestly think that he was going to wow the judges by singing and dancing the way he did?

Heh, my sister and I found his performance and downloaded it once, and we messed around with his voice on this Cool Edit Pro thing-we made it higher, lower, slower, faster, etc., and we discovered that it didn't matter what we did to his voice-he still sounded bad. .

Anywho, yeah...the rejects are always the fun part of the auditions. That's what got me hooked last year. I can't wait to see the auditions the next time around.

By the way, did anyone else find it kinda funny that while all the other judges spoke in their native accents or languages, they picked Simon for the American judge, even though he has a British accent?
