Ermm, no, erm nothing like it. It is much better and does not star Simon Cowell who is also in American Idol, honest...

I saw an interview with Quentin Tarantino the other evenning and he is a big fan of Simon Cowell. They showed a clip of him meeting Simon Cowell and he was all nervous! (Bless him).

You are in good company!

He wants an International star from this series, else he would have failed.

I doubt this show will EVER find sum1 who will sell millions outside of the UK.

^ I agree, no one has done that well out of it really. Girls Aloud, Liberty X and Will Young will never get anywhere outside the UK.

Kelly Clarkson is the only person who has had any international "success" so to speak.

Whatever happened to the guy who won World Idol? He sung Beautiful Day I think??

I keep meaning to take a long weekend off and have a drive up there...but I never get around to it!
I live in the east part of North Yorkshire and am fairly near the coast really (about 20 miles). So nowhere near Holmfirth I'm afraid, I'm more Heartbeat country.

But you're a fan of Brideshead Revisited, must be something of a Last of The Summer Wine fan if you know it's filmed in Holmfirth, all you need to be now is a Heartbeat fan and a fan of All Creatures Great and Small (west part of North Yorkshire) and a trip to West and North Yorkshire could be one of the biggest fan pilgrimages you ever make! lol.

Gonna jump in with the first mention of the Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For effort. What were they thinking? People trying to sing U2 songs is something I love to hate!

Also it seems like every man who goes on there has a dodgy hairstyle.. one of them on last night's show had actually straightened his hair

I missed the Belfast one!! My friend rang up and by the time I'd put the phone down and sat down to watch it it had ended!

Don't get me wrong, it was great to hear from her, but it'd would have been just as nice to hear from her after the show......

Just kidding if you're reading this R.

Terrible indeed! That guy that did GnR - 'Sweet Child O Mine' was god-awful too!

That's not really true. Girls Aloud, Liberty X and Will Young all scored hits in the Netherlands. They weren't as popular as they were in the UK, but they did have a lot of fans among the 12 year olds. And they didn't score as many hits as they did in the UK, but they did score some...

Can I revive this thread to bitch about what happened onthis week's show? Well, I'm doing it anyway:

Guess what I'm gonna complain about? Yep, that whole 'Stelletio' debacle. They didn't sound that bad as a group but "Nope. You're not good enough. You. Yes. You. The pretty one who we pass off in the tried and tested girl next door image. You can come back and audition on your own and be guaranteed to be put through. The rest of you: s*d off."

So she comes back, doesn't sing as well as she does with the group but gets put through regardless.

Shameless seeking of good televison by forcing that poor girl into an emotional dilemma and a gamble that if lost, she could lose everything.

But what really annoyed me was the fact that when another group came in (can't remember what they were called but it was a duo and the guy sang with an American accent) the guy was put down but the woman was praised as a good singer. Does she get the chance to go it alone? No.

Naturally none of this will stop me watching it especially as they put that Goth who came in that 'Batmobile' through into the next round! Always great when they get someone different from the run of the mill.
