Darren Hayes Disappointed With His Idol Pick Sophie Patterson.
Darren Hayes who will be mentoring the Australian Idol’s this Sunday where the performers will have to sing Australian hits. What are the chances Luke Dickens will do a Barnesy number? However in an interview he said Sophie had become too ‘slick’. Hayes had been at the London audition where she was found.
Personally I think Sophie is trying to be sexy when she is not. I don’t get why Dicko goes the whole Bridgette Bardot route with her. She needs to go back to be a bit more the folk singer like Brooke White was in this years American Idol.
Hayes says he is impressed with Roshani Priddis and Wes Carr. Full interview on News.com.au

For the truly Obsessed US So You Think You Can Dance Fan
Yes I am one of them. Here is an excerpt from the LA Times about them hanging out at the post Emmy party.
The “American Idol” / “So You Think You Can Dance” table was in a festive
mood despite “Amazing Race’s” continued dominance of the reality television
category. “Idol” / “Dance” overlord Nigel Lythgoe reported that he used his
first few moments without a show on the air this year to launch the dance show
franchise in South Africa. Telling of his travels, he marveled about that
Across the table, “SYTYCD” judge Mary Murphy was asked if the
party rates a ticket on the Hot Tamale Train (her highest level of praise on the
show).”Oh, no,” she drawled in a deep Southern pitch, “You can’t get a ticket on
the Hot Tamale Train if there’s no dancing.” She gazed out forlornly at the
empty patch of dance floor in front of the bandstand. So why are these things
called balls if there’s never any dancing? “Maybe because there are so many more
losers than winners,” she said.”A party with Mary Murphy is a scream!” Lythgoe
said from across the table, referring to his colleague’s penchant for
full-volumed praise on the show.
But Murphy didn’t take the bait; no piercing trademark shout came forth to crack the chandeliers across the ballroom.Making his way out of the party, Ryan Seacrest stopped by to greet his “Idol” family.
The famously early-to-bed, multiple-job-holding hosting titan is out awfully
late, maybe his latest ever? “Well, let’s see,” he said, looking at his watch,
“the big hand is on the 2 and the little hand is on the, what’s that number?
I’ve never seen that before, 1 and 0 . . .” He looked up and gazed around the

Bobby Flynn the very popular Australian Idol contestant from the 2006 series, is out playing gigs to promote his debut album Out Front.
The album was released on an independent label after he turned down a record deal with music monolith Sony-BMG.
The Courier Mail has an article which also highlights some of his thoughts on being on Idol. Mainly positive, but he did say he had to fight to get his quirky versions of the songs allowed. I suspect that was only in the beginning, and once the producers realised the audience was loving it let him do his own thing.
A full list of his tour dates are listed on his My Space page here.
March 27, 2008 Comments Off on Bobby Flynn Playing Live and Speaks About His Time on Australian Idol
The Sydney Morning Herald has done a review of Bobby Flynn’s first album, Out Front. Bobby a popular contestant in the 2006 Australian Idol series, has shown “real musicians” can use Australian Idol as a vehicle to musical credibility.
He would be pleased with the review which concludes with “He’s more comfortable with his own songs, which toy with vulnerability without completely opening up. That, presumably, will come with experience and confidence. For the moment, he’s a very interesting young talent who may yet grow into something special. Not an Idol then”
