YouTube - Aus Idol 2008 - Wes Carr - Rock

At the very least, you have to admit that Andrew and James are bloody good hosts.

I don't have to admit nothing!


Is this show really still going? Isn't it like Big Brother, and now just redundant?

Well, it was always redundant, just more so now!

But god, it's pretty funny to see these terrible kids hit the wrong notes a lot and then hear Marshia talking about how great they are (usually paraphrasing something that the guest judge or Dicko said a second prior).

There's a lot to enjoy about the show, mainly the lack of professionalism in it. If you watch it as people watch Eurovision, you might enjoy it a lot.

Congratulations Australia, you managed to weed out the contestants who had any talent long before the final, and left us with two singers who make Chris Martin look like Elton John, Luciano Pavarotti and Freddie Mercury all in one!

What did you expect? This is a country that frowns upon the talented. Now let us all buy a VB or a XXXX, put a hand to our heart, and belt out Khe Sanh.

But those two years included six months in the death throws of the Young Divas and a dubious single featuring a "guest US rapper" that is so generic it could be from Kelly Rowland, Mya, Ciara, Jamelia, Brandy - absolutely no personality just another belter.

Give me binge drinking tons of fun Casey Donovan any day. At least she didn't resort to Aguilering every damn song.

Her or Millsy - any guy that star fucks for attention and then goes Broadway is OK with me.

Who did you think had talent? That little kid from Immanuel College? Your friend's music teacher? Chris Isaac?

Point taken.

TNMP, your points are also taken.

To be honest, I think Luke was probably the best male singer they've had in a while. That does not by any means speak volumes, but at least he had a distinctive howl and some control over his voice. Also he actually sounded like a man bloke rather than a wimp, quite rare for the mainsteam male vocalist these days.

Can they kill it now? Please?

Watch! As once again the winner fades into obscurity. Shannon Noll's had mild success. Guy Sebastian's fallen away. Anthony Callea sold very well but is now nowhere. Casey Donovan, no more words needed. They're the only names I can remember.

Anthony Callea has a featured role in Wicked - the biggest musical to ever be staged in Australia. $40 million+ in advance ticket sales. However Rob Mills is also in that - so maybe not something to boast too loudly about...

Some of the girls did OK - the Young Divas were successful for a year or so. And didnt that South African kid who was in the 2005 season get onto Neighbours?
