Michael Johns Has Hit Sydney
Aussie American Idol contestant Michael Johns is now in Australia for a promotional trip for Idol. Not sure what he is going to do, but Fox 8 has brought him out.

He will probably hit the radio airwaves and TV talk shows.

Small SMH article here.

Hilarious article pointing out Paula Abdul’s weird and unexplained moments.
MTV has an article here that outlines American Idol judge Paula Abdul’s other unexplained faux pas on the show. It has been all over the world about last weeks slip up of judging the song before it has been sung. But MTV have dredged their memories to come up with some more.

Natalie Gauci Recording An Album
Sightings of last year’s Australian Idol winner have been slim as she is in the studio recording an album. Apparently they are wanting to take it slowly to ensure it is a quality album. A strategy which worked for Damien Leith last year, as well as Leona Lewis.

Revlon say Alice Burdeau stood them up at an event because of partying too hard.
Revlon allege that last season’s winner of Australia’s Next Top Model Alice Burdeau stood them up for an event the night after the Logies. It was rumoured that she may have knocked back to much of the free champagne and was not in any shape to make it.

Her people deny it of course, and say Alice was never confirmed for the event. However apparently she was unable to speak at the MTV awards, this was reported on Vega. Maybe she is trying to emulate fashion icon Kate Moss too much. Or maybe she should just eat a few more canapes with her champagne.

An addendum to the above article in today’s Daily Tele states an ‘anon source’ said she did look disorientated at the Logies. She apparently arrived 3 hours before the start of the ceremony and was a bit squiffy even before it started. A minder said she was back in her hotel by 1.00am.

Personally I thought it was obligatory to get smashed at the Logies as that was the only way to cope with the evening.

Sigh. Michael Johns. Sigh. Love him. Sigh.

Paula Abdul is nuts, and there are all kinds of stories urging her to be voted off by Nigel and company, but she IS part of Idol (like her or hate her), and I think they need her (though, to be fair, I think they should take Bonnie Lythgoe off SYTYCDA, but maybe b/c I expect more). I wouldn’t be upset if Paula left, I just wonder what would happen to the show. Maybe they could have a rotating judge (like they do on SYTYCD, and SHOULD, I think, on SYTYCDA).

I suppose you cannot get rid of Paula until you know who you would replace her with. I am sure her crazy nights even attract ratings.

Agree she is not the worse judge on TV. Agree with your assessment of Bonnie now word on whether she will be back next season.
