Andrew Wishart Fans Needed To Sign A Petition

Well it appears that petitions are not just for political causes but also for entertainers.

Andrew Wishart is trying to get his winner’s single placed on itunes, and a petition has been started. However Sony want a few more names to it before they consider their position on this issue.

So if you are fan of Andrew Wishart or would just like to see him get his single on itunes go to Petition Buzz.

You gotta be crazy ,Pops.

When hell freezes over, I’ll sign it.

BDD – I did think of you when I wrote the blog post, and thought chances are….

Well RR, a petition was required to bring The Beatles to Adelaide and it was a good thing…but we’re talking about Pops here and he’s more like a musical cockroach..

That’s slightly misleading, Andrew didn’t start the petition; it was organised by someone in Townsville. But Johnny’s been signed and if yet another generic pretty boy shaking his ass to a backing track gets to assault the airwaves, then someone who can actually sing should be allowed to get one song out. 😉

Kenobi – No way is Johnny Ruffo signed? I thought he might get a gig on Home and Away but did not think he would get a record contract.

6 Bob { 12.04.11 at 10:15 pm }

Yeah, Johnny has been signed and is going to release an Album soon. Andrew is the only one that hasn’t been signed. His winner’s single was great..Sony have 50 days to make up their mind

He’s been in the papers/TV here in Perth saying he’s with a “major record label” now and is currently recording, but I don’t think it’s Sony.

Raver shouldn’t that just read “Andrew Wishart Fans Needed.”?

Kenobi= applause. I agree totally :)

Is there a petition to stop this happening?

Just noticed on the weekend that a former AI winner is hosting a TV show on 7two called New Idea Test Kitchen……….there is NO hope for Andrew Wishart!

12 Reality Raver { 12.05.11 at 1:34 pm }

Craig – That was after his roy orbison cover album. Yet to watch the show. I had thought magazine style TV was not popular anymore.

13 Craig { 12.05.11 at 2:35 pm }

RR – hence why it’s on 7two on a sunday arvo!!

14 bella vita { 12.06.11 at 2:22 am }

Well for interests sake…he has told his cover band not to expect him back any time soon and has fill in singers lined up for the next 6 months
Apparantly the boys in his band think it’s hilarious as he was always acting like a diva and they are secretly happy that he’s gone away

I’m hearing the sound of vending machines for him in around 3 months…after the Xmas Corporate Scene has died down

Not much action on the numbers on the petition for Pops’ poop over the weekend.

Shine On You Crazy Peanut Salesman.

Brain Dead Dave. Your name suits you perfectly. I don’t know why you are so mean and nasty about Andrew just because you don’t like his style of music. Grow up!!!

17 Ria Swertz { 12.09.11 at 8:43 pm }

Andrew Wishart has the most amazing voice, please Sony sigh him up and give him a contract and release his song, we love you Andrew !!!!

The winner and runner-up not immediately getting a record deal with active promotion says something really poor about the x factor singing competition tv show.
It demonstrates the purpose of the show is to sale ad slots, not finding and promoting vocal talent. Must be time for the show to go to the waste bin, Simon has made enough money from exploiting people trying to get a better job.

I bet Andrew would have got a deal if he was black or especially if he was mulatto.
These ‘so called’ singing competitions really seem to give favor to that.

Yep Johnny is signed with Sony, He is an amazing singer/dancer who deserves the contract he has with sony! He is going on Dancing with the stars, Releasing his single in a few weeks and than an album. Sony wouldn’t have signed him if he had no talent. Stop being so judgmental of someone trying to live their dream!!

Andrew’s Debut album is released this week and is available from all Sanity stores. it includes the winners song and a whole bunch of other songs he did on the show, including the song by Adele. i guess Sony should have moved quicker
