Anyone planning on watching it this year?

Here's the promo:

Don't know what to think. I hope I have a favourite this year. Haven't had one for a few years now.

I won't be watching it.
I think the whole concept is sickening, an Australian pop-star who hasn't been on Neighbours?
Oh the humanity of it all.

I think I'm going to watch it on principle, if I can find out when it starts.

No i don't like Idol, never have. I like Jessica Mauboy though, but the show itself is a joke. The chick mocking Madonna in that add deserves to be shot...dead.

LOL.

I have bad feelings about this year.

BUT I will give it a try.

And Anthony Callea was born from Idol and he's my favourite singer of all time so they must be good for something.

And some of them are quite talented! I really liked Wes Carr.

^Wasn't Anthony on some other child performing show when he was younger? I remember watching a bit of it in some show.

Wes Carr is a nice guy. I met him at the AFI awards and he was really down to earth.

I have nothing against the performers, its just the show itself that is a joke. I mean they all get contracts in the end and Mark Holden is a dickhead as Kyle is a prick.

But then again, it gave us Ikky Lee so i'm not too thrilled about that! Hahaha.

I'd rather they bring back Rock Star. INXS need a new lead singer, don't they?
At least they sing great songs and have attitude, they aren't just cookie-cutter teeny-boopers.

^Maybe if they had chosen Marty instead of JD on the US Rock Star they wouldn't still need a singer. Sigh, still bitter after all these years.

It'll be you and me up in the trees and the forest will give us the answers.

Mig Ayessa was my favourite to win.
And what ever happened to Supernova? Apart from get sued and forced to change their name. They made the wrong choice on that one too, clearly Toby was the best of the lot!

Can't say I am. I avoid the Idol contestants in general (that being said I know Lee Harding lol). If they aren't good enough to land a deal on their own merit then they aren't good enough for me to want to be a fan of.

I agree in regards to usually avoiding Idol contestants as well-- Although I am acquainted with Mr. Lambert (through the musical theater world) and he's a great guy. Great personality and vocals. He was the "runner-up".

We have the excruciatingly similar X Factor on at the moment in Britain which I DO watch until the auditions are over - just to laugh at the sodding eedjits who think they're good when they're shite. Duff notes, bad timing, no rhythm ect. That's entertainment!

But I agree with Camm. It should be off their own merits that they succeed. It's maybe easier contest fashion to reach to the world, but I like to know that a band/singer has worked hard, starting from small beginnings. That gets my respect more.

That's definitely undertandable, but I have a friend who recently competed on American Idol and he's been working at his career for various years, and has in fact, paid his dues. He wasn't simply bored one day, and didn't just decide to audition for thrills and kills. For performers, it really is a great platform. Sure, the show may be "cheesy" and such, but it has helped many at least make a name for themselves.

In Britain, some who were assured pop stardom from Cowell have faded into the lesser end of entertainment eg. clubs, panto, West End shows ect, and that's achievement enough, I suppose - it's a living anyhow.

I remember going to a Suede gig a few years back and Razorlight were the support band then, now they've achieved more than the main band did! I like those kind of stories but maybe that's just the old rock 'n' roller in me. Did your friend win, by the way?

I don't know, but if you ask me..Broadway is still an amazing accomplishment. I'm a musical theater performer, so Broadway is my love. Hah.
No, my friend did not win--however, he did receive the runner-up position in this past 2009 season. It resulted in him getting signed by a record label. His debut material is due out in November, so we'll see how it all goes.
