I am so happy with all who got through on the wildcard.. they were all my choices too!! I met Klancie and she is just gorgeous and a lovely person, we chatted about EB and how we had been chatting - it was a freak out... Anyway, can't wait till Sunday - Damien is going to rock it up a bit as he seems to be getting some flack about his falsetto so he is going to show the horrible people on the Idol forum that he isn;t just a ballad falsetto! ha GO DAMIEN!!!

Yay! I totally picked those 4! Maybe I'll try with the tipping competition on the Idol site this year. Last year my guesses totally sucked, but so far this year I've picked all of them! It seems as if viewers for the most part are starting to vote with their brains rather than any other part of their anatomy this year!
By the way, did anyone else pick up the first thing Andrew G said tonight??? It was "crikey, what a day".

I agree with the judges that the public did well in choosing.
Some of those guys were so flakey. One guy I don't think should be up there. He's one of the pretty boys.
To sum up what I think.
Anyways Chris Murphy did well and Lavina. she's got a strong voice. Mutto is a cool rock lad. I like Klancie too, she's got a wicked country voice and could be quite a performer.
That chick who sung 'diamonds on the inside' seems a little weak and would be more of a Missy Higgins style and I don't think she'll handle bigger songs. I could be wrong though

Well I am REALLY happy with the results! I spoke to Klancie yesterday before the show and she sounded happy but nervous, she said she wasn't getting her hopes up.
Laddidah, I told Klancie about this thread and that you were on here. I'm glad you got to speak to her and she IS a nice person hey! Aren't some people on that Idol website just awful!? I have been giving it so some of the people on there, I know everyone has their own opinion & is entitled to it, but some of the comments are just plain rude. I think a lot of them are immature teenagers (& adults!) but it still makes me cranky. I can't wait to see Damien perform again, I know he will do brilliantly!
Ok, that's my bit. Oh BTW I was disappointed that Brendan didn't get in, he has a lot of talent. Oh well....

Well I was happy with Klancie, Mutto and Chris M getting in but I CAN'T STAND Ricky so was disappointed with that. I know he has a good voice bla bla bla but he knows that he is good looking and that just wrecks it for me really.
Anyway, looking forward to Sunday night, wonder who the first one to go will be?? Hopefully Ricky.......(I know it won't be though )

Hi ladies, hope I can join this group.
First up, congratulations laddidah on Damien being in. He has a great voice and I really hope he will go far. I'll be cheering for him from my lounge room.
I don't mind Ricky that much. He seems to really want to be there and I think he has a good voice. Could be that I'm biased because he is Maltese though!

I didn't get how it worked. At the start of the show James and Andrew said there were three minutes left to vote but the judges had already made their decision. How could the judges make a decision if they didn't know how the public was going to vote? Anyone know?
Posted 05 September 2006 - 12:01 PM
I would say they just took the highest in votes excepting the 2 that judges went for. It's an SMS $$ grab, really.
I kind of liked the reference to Steve Irwin.. it was a nice way of acknowledging it without making a show of it. Not bad taste IMO.
I was disapointed with RIcky over Brendan but overall pretty happy with the 12. Looking forward to the weekend.
Posted 05 September 2006 - 12:17 PM
Ricky reminds me so much of Anthony Callea
Well done to your friend Bush mum with boy's with Klancie getting into the top 12
Posted 05 September 2006 - 03:30 PM
I have to agree with PP I think Andrew G was actully paying a small tribute to Steve Irwin, I really do not believe in was said it bad taste.

I also thought Andrew G's commment was a nice subtle tribute.
Agreed with 3 that got in but would have preferred Brendan over Ricky.
Was very excited that Klancie got through.
I am really looking forward to this year.

Hope you don't mind me joining in....
How exciting to have Damien's wife here - he's almost famous!! I hope he does well. My DH and I thought he was great, and were quite shocked that they said he was an ugly b*st*rd. I hope he took it on the chin and didn't give it too much thought. He's not at all ugly, and when you think of the guy who won the World Idol comp, "the hobbit", Damien is a God compared to him!! LOL!!
I am really pleased with the Top 12. I had picked 3 out of the 4, I wasnt sure about Klancie getting it, but I am pleased that she has, my picks were Ricky, Mutto, Chris & Nathaniel. I was worried that Chris was going to miss out going by the demographics of who watches Idol, I thought the young girls would all vote Nathaniel in.
We think this is the best Top 12 yet. Its going to be an interesting show!
Posted 06 September 2006 - 09:57 AM
I was happy with the 4 picked but would have ratherd nathaniel over ricky.
My DD voted for Nathaniel and was so smitten when she got of the phone (aged 5) and was heartbroken when he got booted out.
I was pretty annoyed that I wasted money voting when they did it the way they did - surely they should have waited until the votes were counted - and hey! what is with the public only getting to chose 1
To me it looked like a set up - the judges only gave 3 good reviews to 1 contestent - Chris M, the others ALL got mixed reviews yet he was NOT a judges choice.......
Posted 06 September 2006 - 10:30 AM
I too would have preferred Nathaniel over Ricky, his rendition of Vertigo was great and couldn't get his version out of my head. Ricky looks like a carbon copy of Anthony Callea...boring
Other than that I am happy with the top 12, bring on Sunday!!!

Not sure if this has been posted in any of the idol post's, but just found some pics of Dean Geyer, who is also a model, is featured in BODYLINE MEN calendar 2005, 2006 & 2007, saw the pics for this year and the 2007 one and all i can say is phew. Thought i'd mention it since there were a few members swooning over him in the first post

I can't work out the wildcard. How can they tell Nathaniel he's out before they've even closed the lines for the viewer's choice? It didn't make sense unless they (surprise surprise) already knew who the viewer's choice was.
How did it happen that the "viewer's choice" came from the people who weren't in the "comparison" contest.
It was all rigged and I'm glad I don't vote.
Having said that I'm glad Chris and Mutto got through. I didn't see Klansie or Ricky - got home too late. I loved Chris' version of Holy Grail - yet DH hated it.
Posted 08 September 2006 - 12:36 PM
Wow if Joseph has to pull out then how are they going get another contestant in it. How would they choose, I mean??
I never vote on these things, so I am not too sure how they go with all the voting.
It would probably be rigged anyway <_<
Posted 08 September 2006 - 03:02 PM
OMG I am so excited!!!!
I just got email notification that I got tickets to the show on SUnday 17 Sept. I sure hope it isn't a hoax since it is from grundytv. SO happy its for the live show and not the eviction one!
OMG OMG OMG!!! I tried for so many years, and didn this one so half heartedly, now I'll just have to wait patiently for them to come via AUstpost.
Has anyone else here ever been to a show before????
Posted 08 September 2006 - 03:59 PM
Wow Carmine how exciting for you, woohoo well done. Do you have to pay for the tickets??
I bet you will have a great time
Posted 08 September 2006 - 09:06 PM
For the life of me....I can't think which one is Joseph. Any help girls?
Posted 09 September 2006 - 10:04 AM
I was reading some of the articles on the anzwers site, and came across this: http://news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=142560
The following sounds very dodgy to me.. "Greg" is the Executive Producer, and for Bobby to get a call from him, makes me think that perhaps Bobby didn't get through on his own merits???
Am interested in others opinions... Am I reading too much into it?
"You can throw all the bells and whistles on a show like this, but if you haven't got the right cast you may as well forget it." Mr Beness is "stoked" the show has found the right cast, despite some being sceptical about the genre-specific pop format.
Serious musician Bobby Flynn was one of those artists.
"I hadn't watched the show, so I didn't know much about it, but I absolutely had reservations about auditioning," the 25-year-old said.
"But I had a call from Greg who told me they were re-creating the show to encourage musicians and singer-songwriters, taking a more serious approach.
"He listened to my concerns and I thought I would take the opportunity forward."
The finalists this year are a "mixed and unique bag" Mr Beness said.

Did anyone see in the paper today the 'scandal' around the Williams girl. Apparently she was kicked out of the Disney Lion King musical because she was accused of cooking the cast member hash cookies!!
What an interesting twist
