Australian Idol – It’s Wes Carr and Luke Dickens
Thank you Idol for not making us sit through an hours TV before finding who the final two were.
Well the big surprise was Luke Dickens making it through to the Opera House. It is not undeserved he has barely put a foot wrong throughout the competition. Also it also confirms my theory that having a town vote for you gives you an advantage.
And the best thing about Wes getting through was seeing his ‘life story’. Wes performing as kid was very funny and cute. One of Wes’s attributes is his vulnerability.
The two both have different but interesting stories. Luke has the fairytale story of a hard working shearer who only sang for the first time in front of an audience last year and is now one week from becoming famous.
Whilst Wes’s story is the hard working, talented muso who has gigged for years but never got that break. He was just about to give it up but then decided to audition for Idol, and went from playing for ten people to over a 1 million via the tv set.
Or maybe it will just be a battle of the beards.
They sang their winner songs and now it is up to us to vote.
It will be interesting to see if Natalie Gauci will be singing at the Opera House or will she go in the forgotten Idol box along with Kate D’Arrugo, and Casey Donovan.
