Is it just me, or is this the least talented lot ever?

I mean lana was cute as hell and I would fly to perth to meet her, but this lot, absolutely suck!

Where IS the talent in australia? This is a joke...

Also what do become of our idols? I think our most successful is Shannon Noll who finished 2nd. What's Guy doing now?

**** idol all together, it's crap. Their stealing the spotlight from true musicians who grind away working hard to become something in the industry..

Whereas idol, you are spring boarded into popularity with some pre-written song which they had no involvement in making, its all spoon-fed to you.

No one on australian idol has talent. Shannon knoll has written 1 recorded songs. Every other song is a cover. He probably dosen't even choose the covers, his manager probably tells him exactly what to do.

The real talent is in the local clubs trying their hardest to make something (musically) of themselves.

Australian idol is 50% about looks and 95% about the tone of their voice. They don't need to sing well, the girls have just gotta sound like a pop singer and the guys have just gotta sound like girls. Axl rose, for instance, wouldn't win australian idol, but he would kick all their arses in real life and he has the voice of a... something good!

I dont know... but that Mark De Costa dude is alright. He did a pretty good version of "Whole Lotta Love" when I saw him.
some say you're a troubled boy
just because you like to destroy
all the things that bring the idiots joy
well, what's wrong with a little destruction?

Bobby from last years idol, that guy is awesome.
This year is crap. The "hard rock" guy is some trendy guy that wears eyeliner and tight jeans. Put him up against a true rock singer, well... we know what would happen.

Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.

A friend of mine is actually a quite talented jazz singer. She is not overly pretty though and she does not have the pop-star tone in her voice. She tried out but didn't get in, and she's not dumb.

Yeah its funny isnt it about Shannon Noll...

Its like 11 consecutive number ones...

And i'm pretty sure he's only written one of his songs.. so its all marketing.. and I'm ridiculously envious that that's all it takes

I'm pretty sure Australian Idol is rigged as well.

Did you see Damien Leith last year? That bloke had talent! He wrote his entire album. I saw him do Nessun Dorma as well and it was awesome. Aside from him... I haven't ever been very impressed.

I hate you and people like you. Bobby is NOT awesome.. did you NOT watch when he wore eyeliner like an idiot? Did you not hear him destroy Rhiannon by fleetwood mac and EVERY song he did?
Rock genre, Oh I'll just get a rock song, and gay it up
Disco genre, Oh I'll just get a disco song and gay it up
Big Band genre, Oh I'll just get a big band song and gay it up

He is the worst human being on earth and should be killed

i wanna see footage of that guy when he was in the metal band he said he was in

Do you remember Jacob Butler from the X factor..

Tv show *****, with very little talent obviously, all he does is oasis..
#15
C'mon guys who are saying no-one on the show has talent, what about Anthony Calea? No matter what music you like, you can't deny his vocal performances on "The Prayer" was brilliant.

I still feel sorry for Casey Donavan dropped from sony records for not having the right look (being overweight). I don't like that show. It boils my blood
And yes this years lot isn't at par with the rest;

Grow the fuck up and stop posting your baised opinions. That guy has more talent than you could ever hope to achieve.
People like YOU piss me off because you think your opinion is all that matters. Not only that, but youve used "gay" as an insult, which not only shows your a pre-pubescant dick, but you have no idea what your talking about.
