Is Australian Idol Going To Eliminate Kyle Sandilands?
The Age today says that Australian Idol may be considering dumping Kyle Sandilands over his role in questioning a 14 year old about her sex life on radio. If you have been in a coma for the past week you can read a former post about that debacle here.
The article says:
A Channel Ten spokesperson last night told The Age that, while Sandilands would appear in episodes already filmed, the network was reconsidering his role as a judge of young aspiring musicians.
“˜”˜Kyle will obviously be in the audition episodes, as they were filmed some time ago,” the spokesperson said. “˜”˜But Idol is a family program, we consider this a very serious incident and our executives will continue discussions over the weekend to come to a decision regarding his future on Idol.”
You can imagine every person in town ringing their agent saying get me that gig.
Kyle Sandilands was probably the most entertaining judge on Australian Idol last year. Dicko was lethargic most of the time, and Marcia Hines is more life coach than judge. I am happy to see him sacked as long as the bring in someone entertaining, and don’t revive Mark Holden. Why doesn’t Channel Ten draft Paul McDermott from Good News Week for some guest judging spots and see how he goes. He has both the snark plus the musical background? Does anyone else have any ideas?
