Another series of Idol, eh?

While we await the third series of Australian Idol to see who will follow in Guy's footsteps and try to avoid following in Casey's, let's all choke on our lunches at the vastly thrilling news that CANADIAN IDOL 3 has now determined its Top 10.

I'm quite serious. The first two series have been phenomenally good, with contestants who are actual musicians and a female judge who is not afraid to level criticism at sub-standard performers. Her name is Colette Sass Jordan, who is so sassy that she smiles even in clearly insufficiently heated photography studios:



Canadian Idol is quite quirky. It once saw fit to devote an entire week to the "The Songs of Gordon Lightfoot" and often features contestants who can't speak English! And yet they've never set foot outside Canada! Although those hardcore Quebec residents will tell you they've never set foot in Canada! You see, the politics are all very delicate over there, which is why an ex-Prime Minister's son is host. It keeps things "all aboot the music". Somehow.

Anyway, this is the Top 10:



And I am currently putting my support behind Suzi Raw to be the first female Canadian Idol.



In time Suzi will see that that "n" is just horribly redundant. The stage name "Raw" is far more in keeping with her self-professed "punk ass hippie" fashion preference and her "frantic folk" musical style!

She's also a mom, but not at all in an Emelia Rusciano dishonest one-earring Adelaide bogan type of way.

As for people to hate instantly, I suggest Amber Fleury:



Amber likes Trisha Yearwood and Celine Dion and describes her fashion style as "conservative". As far as I can tell from the following photo, she also appears to favour shoulder pads:



Stay tuned to see whether Raw or Conservative wins out.

    Hi this is 'Emelia Rusciano one earring dishonest Adelaide bogan here'
    Seriously, GET A LIFE....
    It's pretty sad that you seem to dedicate so much time to sitting up high and judging people who are just trying to make something of them selves. If most of them offend you (as they seem to) don't watch the show. I wonder what we would all think of you if we could monitor you and your actions over a three month period?
    As far as me being dishonest....Don't believe everything you read on the internet.

    Emelia. I can't believe I spelt your name right! I wish I hadn't now, of course; then your Google search would have been less painful.

    Please endeavour to look past the bitchy flavour of blogs like these, Emelia. They are clearly skewed in favour of sarcasm but they come from the same place of love and passion that allowed your music career to be birthed.

    You have simply entered the pop culture consciousness in a certain guise and that's THAT. Embrace it! As Emelia Rusciano, woman, mother, friend: no doubt you are exemplary. As a mediatised character on Idol, you are a whole other entity!

    In the same way that you advocate a discerning approach to internet news consumption, perhaps your own next self-Googling mission should be undertaken with a giant grain of salt by your side.
