Marcia Hines Says Kyle Sandiland’s Sacking From Australian Idol Was Wrong
Australian Idol judge Marcia Hines has told the Daily Telegraph that it was wrong that Kyle Sandilands was sacked from the show last year. Kyle was dumped after he questioned a fourteen year old about her sex life on radio in front of her mother where she revealed she had been sexually assaulted.
Marcia said in the article:
“It was one of the most unfair things I’ve seen,” she said, of Kyle, who was sacked as a judge following a controversy on his radio show.
“He’s my buddy. I like Kyle. Kyle says what he wants to say. Most people are the same way but they’re not on TV. I was so bummed out that he was taken off the show.”
Hines said she agreed with popular opinion that new judge Jay Dee Springbett was boring.
“You said it, so I don’t need to repeat it,” she said. “Jay Dee and Dicko were too similar. There was no humour. That’s where Kyle came in.”
Marcia Hines in the article did not reveal what she thought her role on the show was.
Kyle’s TV career is continuing to thrive with a gig on Australia’s Got Talent, and the new X Factor.
