Australia Redeems Itself

The whole distressingly-undeserving-BB-winner thing is gradually fading into triviality as Australia re-establishes itself as a discerning and reasonable voting collective.

The selection of Chris Lilley Luder, Zanne Robertson and Tarnish Stephens has ensured the best possible start to Australian Idol 3.

These are the exact 3 singers officially endorsed by S2BC for Group 1. So, hurrah!

However, it's hard not to feel sorry for Josh Williams, who was almost unbearably gracious in defeat. It really does make one want to move to London and live on the streets, doesn't it?

And poor gummy Jade-Lori Crompton! Most likely the 5th place finisher, she probably just didn't endear herself enough to voters for them to forgive her uncanny ocular resemblance to James Mathison. Her disappointment would also not have been helped by that momentary confusion about whether it was she or Tarnish who had been promoted to the stools.

Note to Andrew G: it is perhaps wise to revisit the value of pauses in speech. The best way to induct a Top 4 competitor is really NOT as follows.

"Tarni. [dramatic pause]

[Further excruciating pause]

You are the next member of our Top 4, Jade-Lori. [pause] You are going home."

Could any living creature be worse at hosting a live program?

Anyway, let's positively flagellate ourselves with respective back-patting for that fine effort, Australia. Bring on Group Two!

    Josh was so nice about being dumped from the top 4 that he made me want to hurl. He's cute, but has zero talent in the singing department.

    One Millsy was enough thanks !!!

    I've put my finger on why Chris's goldfish eyes freak me out - he sings as if he is permanently in the moment just before ejaculation. But I accept he's a good singer, and I'm happy with the top 3 so far.
