World Idol

International ‘Idols’ to face off

First-season winners to compete during holiday shows



IN “WORLD IDOL,” a two-part special airing the evenings of Christmas and New Year’s Day, Clarkson will compete in London with winners from 10 other countries, including Lebanon, South Africa and Poland.
An international panel of judges, made up of one representative from each country, will comment on the performances. Then viewers from around the world will have the chance to vote.
Details on the voting process will be released later, according to the Fox network, home of “American Idol.”
The competitors are all winners of the first season of the “Idol” series in their respective countries — making second-season U.S. winner Ruben Studdard ineligible, the network said Wednesday.
The program will air 8-10 p.m. EST on Dec. 25, and 9-10 p.m. EST on Jan. 1.
The “World Idol” participants, besides Clarkson, are Will Young, United Kingdom; Heinz Winckler, South Africa; Alicja Janosz, Poland; Jamai Loman, Netherlands; Alexander Klaws, Germany; Kurt Nilsen, Norway; Diana Karazon, Lebanon; Peter Evrard, Belgium, and Ryan Malcolm, Canada; and an Australian contestant who will be selected Nov. 19.
While “Idol” winners get record contracts in the national contests, a Fox spokeswoman said she was unaware of a prize for the international champion.
Shows patterned after the original series, Britain’s “Pop Idol,” now are seen in more than 20 countries.
“American Idol” proved a major ratings hit for Fox. The premiere date for the third season of the U.S. show has yet to be announced.

I applaud you not posting about this in Bang & Clatter since it indeed has nothing to do with music

I think the results are out on New Year's Day or something. At least that's what my tv guide says.

I thought the guy who sang Light my Fire was awful, awful, awful. The guy from germany was also very bad. In fact they all were pretty bad aside from Kelly Clarkson. I thought the guy who sang Beautiful Day was good. He wasn't flat or sharp like most of the contestants. My family kept begging my sister and I to turn it off but we wanted to see all the winners. Nothing else was on anyway....

I had such a low-key day that the TV was eventually turned on... I thought the "Beautiful Day" performance was not-so-bad... he was right on as far as mimicing Bono's maneurisms while on stage. My mom picked up the phone and placed a vote

I don't know others but I heard Will Young and Alexander Klaws before - sugar overload, thin voices with no characteristics.
