Australian Idol Elimination – And now there are three

Tonights elimination epiosode raised three questions that need to be addressed:
1. Should it be illegal for post menopausal women to call Matt Corby sexy? Yes, and what were they doing in the audience unaccompanied by children.
2. What the hell is a confidence coach? Is it a trumped up hairdresser? From what I can gather the hair dresser food chain goes like this. You start at hairdresser, then go to stylist, then hair designer, then hair director, and then the pinnacle you are a confidence coach.
3. Why wasn’t James Blundell’s ex at Westfield Parramatta trying to win the mum’s idol competition to get to the Opera House outdoor stage to really give the fuck you to Jesse Curran and James.

The big news today was the Idol speculation on the Daily Telegraph website on whether Matt Corby is a protected species . The article reveals that he had a tanty backstage with the judges and it was not aired like Tarasai’s was.

People on the Daily Telegraph blog appeared to be shocked that the viewers maybe manipulated by the producers of these shows.

The excuse was there was only the inside idol camera on Matt at the time so this footage was to go on Inside Idol – which is downloaded to telephones. It would be interesting to know if it had been streamed to the paying public.

The excuse does sound like bullshit.

Matt appears to be depressed and thinks he won’t be taken with any musical credibility if he wins. A theory which was probably confirmed after seeing Guy Sebastian on the show singing a medley full of covers.

However Matt Corby can take heart that Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman are big fans of his.

I am starting to hope he does not win, as he is starting to believe his own press. Did he really think he would have been discovered so easily if at all in any other way. He is good, but I don’t think he has put in a great performance in weeks. Ben is the one who will be interesting to see in a few years time.

The highlight of the show was seeing footage of Kyle getting up on stage last night and sing “Just a Gigolo” badly. The funny thing was he was taking it so seriously.

Also Sheridan being a bitchy queen sniping “Kyle doesn’t know anything about fashion” That would be pot calling kettle black. Natalie Gauci should sue Sheridan for long term damage to her self esteem, he has been atrocious.

The group song was a Beatles number, with Marty looking like he would rather be sticking his head into a bucket of pus, instead of being on stage.

In fact they were all rather relieved to be told that was the last group performance for this season. The only reason they have been so bad this year is because the Idols have been so lame. Last year with that huge pool of talent the group songs were ok.

All four were looking tense once it got to the business end of proceedings. Marty and Carl were bottom two, and Marty unsurprisingly was given the boot.

As they was looking over his journey I thought he made top four and did not do one standout performance. Just shows how poor the talent has been this year.

Next week the public can submit songs for the Idols. What about Mickey for Natalie Gauci, I would love to see her dressed as a cheer leader. Maybe Carl could do a punk song like God Save the Queen, and Matt could do a disco number Born to be Alive. I doubt any of my picks would get through.

Is James Blundell using Idol to ressurect his mediocre career?

James Blundell after years of playing at rodeo after parties finally hit the metropolitan media again with the news he was doing the wild thing with an Australian Idol Semi Finalist 23 year old Jesse Curran.

Hitting Page 3 of the Sunday Tele the night before her semi-final was always going to make it difficult for the talented idol contestant whose image went from sweet country girl to conniving skank in the time it took to read seven paragraphs.

Her cause was not helped by him sitting in the front row trying to hide under a baseball cap – which was about as clever disguise as a Chaser crew member dressing up as Osama Bin Laden to get through APEC security (Oops sorry that one did work).

Who was advising them? Why was he not told to stay away? Clearly his management decided this was an opportunity to get Blundell back on the D List.

This young lass was naive enough to think it was wonderful he was showing his support – not realising that any slim hope she had of getting through to the final 12 had evaporated once his wrinkled mug got on the camera.

In a couple of years/months time once she is sick of him having to pop a blue pill to perform and listening to his I shouda gone to Nashville stories she will realise that he effectively killed her career before it even started. Love if it was a bit of hotness like George Clooney it would have been worth it.

Unfortunately the saga continues as he has whored his story to a weekly gossip mag. Mate I don’t even think that will get you playing at the Rooty Hill RSL again.

Stay tuned for sightings of the pair at fake tan launches, and straight to DVD movie nights.
