What Is It With This Year’s Idol’s And Their Victim Mentality

Thanh Bui the latest Australian Idol Contestant eliminated believes the judges were really hard on him.

This follows on from Tom William moaning that he was eliminated not from lack of talent but because the judges were biased against him. Previous post here.

What is wrong with these guys where they are so deluded they think the judges are able to control the voting audience like we are the stepford wives??

In an article on Livenews Thanh said:

“I’ve been through this before”¦ the touring and signings and appearances and
crazy timetables because we toured in six different countries,” Bui told”But what goes with that territory is that people expect more
form you and the judges”¦ they were really hard on me, it was either touchdown or nothing, there was no middle ground for me.”

Other quotes from an exit interview on included ” I know that I’m not the weakest performer there and even on Sunday night I know that I wasn’t the weakest performance on the night,”

Look guys if you want to feel loved join a Landmark course. The judges are not there to raise their self esteem.

Also Mark Holden would not have given Thanh Bui a touchdown for his John Farnham cover. Guys get over yourselves.

Tom Williams Interview – I knew he was young But I did not realise he still had a dummy!

Tom Williams in an exit interview with Who Magazine says it was the judges bias that got him eliminated, not his lack of talent.

WTF??? I thought the judges were far to complimentary considering Uptown Girl would probably rate in my top 5 of Idol’s worse performances ever. Actually make that top 3.

He also states that they judges are rigging the show as they want Wes Carr to win.

Tom obviously is having a dummy spit – and clearly thinks he is more talented then he actually is.

Idol Updates

Tom Williams Trying To Extend His 15 Minutes Of Reality TV Fame.

I have got to hand it to Tom Williams, he maybe 16 years old but he sure is media savvy. Tom in his post elimination media interviews has been spruiking that he wants to start a Jonas Brothers type band. For people who don’t know who the Jonas Bros are they are a prepubescent boy band that have taken over the tween and teen market in the US. Hanson for the noughties.

Tom does not say whether he will be following their promise ring philosophical.

Anyhow it is a perfect pitch to record companies by Tom and a very canny move. What next? Will he try and date Hannah Montana to assist with maintaining his profile?

Full story on

Speaking of girlfriends, both Wes Carr, and Mark Spano are hooked up.

Wes’s girl is an actress and they live together in Bondi. Yes she was the one he kissed on Sunday night. In this week’s NW it was revealed he told her he was a personal trainer so she would be interested in him. I don’t quite get that anyway it worked for him.

Also Mark Spano is seeing a make-up artist he met on an Australian Idol shoot. Apparently it is serious and he will be moving from Melbourne to Sydney once Idol finishes.

Micheal Johns the Aussie contestant on American Idol is back in Australia for a quick visit. In an interview with The West he said post Idol he favoured going with an independent label so he could retain control over his album. Apparently it will be out next February.

American Idols’ winner David Cook will have his album out in November.

Australian Idol – Season 6 – And now there were nine

Sorry about the belated recap of the Idol elimination but I was so excited with Tom Williams, Teale and Madam Parker making the bottom 3 that I popped the champagne and turned into a right lush.

Unfortunately the truth is a bit more boring then that.

To paraphrase many a reality TV judge and compere “Australia got it right”.

Highlights of the evening were:

  • James Mathison and Ricki-Lee struggling to interview Teale and Madam Parker and make it interesting.
  • Madam Parker makes Casey Donovan interview technique look positively sparkling, and Teale who was talking about having a personality, now if you have to talk about it….
  • Darren Hayes who continues to sing the praises of the talent of Teale confirmed his male crush when he said “Teale blew me away.”

Anyway Tom Williams was not going to be saved by the tweens this time. Parents all over Australia had taken the phones out of their little ones hands, and like having to explain why a beloved pet has to be put down they said “He is in pain, let him go.”
