Well most of my time was spent trying to figure out why they have chosen to go the route they have trying to find a lead singer. Within that I had to bear some appauling singers who not only don't deserve to front INXS, but don't deserve to be termed singers - if they are the best 16 options to front INXS then I'm not here.

I was only going to be suppourtive of the concept if the band essentially dictated the process - I wasn't fussed if there was cameras there to catch it, or hosts there to guide it along and give it a bit of an "X" factor - just as long as the band retained control. It was obvious from the opening credits they had not - the 16 "contestants" were profiled down to the ground. You're token black, punk, Canadain, Australian, Southener, women etc etc. It was just like the cast for a Survivor contest. I just don't understand in any audition process how INXS would have 8 or so women on the final shortlist let alone American women, let alone 20-somthing women. I can't see how a 20 year old American woman & Kirk Penguilly are going to mesh personally or musically.

Then there is the recording of the album without knowing the singer... thats fine in American Idol - which everyone knows is a corprate machine... but for a band that is IMO brutally offensive and disgusting. Add on top of that it is already slated in for a November release - add on top of that a 100 city tour is already scheduled shortly after... it's all a bit too Pop for my liking.

Thirdly, having the performances at the place where Hutch played his last gig with INXS - and pointing out this fact - I thought was mind blowingly cheap.

As a show though it was pretty entertainig. I watched all of it, unlike the season final of the OC... so that's somthing - Tim obviously seems to be the team captain and seems like a nice enough chap - he seems very genuine in his guidance and advice to the contestents.

Which leads me to why I think they are doing this... I really don't think they have all of a sudden become morally devoid beings, they seem truly genuine - I think they've been talking to some very bad, money driven people who have given them false ideas of how this is going to go down. They look back in ten years and rue this I truly believe.

Oh, right. I was so excited to see her here that I missed that last part.

Patience, grasshopper. I tried getting the R&H gif done first, but got a little too transfixed by the live With or Without You performance.

Mark Burnett (show's creator) is the devil. I wanted to make a Photoshopped picture of him as Satan last night. Maybe I'll do that tonight while the performance episode is on.

I still can't get over the footage of Andrew speaking at Hutch's funeral. That was too morbid for my liking.

I'll definitely make it tonight.

I'm surprised too! I was expecting you were going to be indifferent about the entire concept.
