No rest for the wicked...

So there I was, settling down to watch the opening episode of Australian Idol, my heart buoyed by the notion that I was NOT going to blog this season and I was free to enjoy the show without having to come up with hilarious jokes every five minutes, and then Kyle goes and says this:

"If you're a muso and you haven't had a crack at Idol you're not taking it serious enough."


Well SHIT. How can I ignore that kind of comedy gold?

So look, I'll cut you a deal, kids. Idol is "fast tracking" the trip to the final 12 this year, and so will I.

All those BC readers who haven't yet blacklisted me for not delivering on the ANTM finale: Tune back in after the auditions and semi finals are over, and we'll get Idol blogging CRAZY up in here, y'all!

  2. Isn't Idol on like every night this week? Gah, I'm sick of it already, and I don't think it's even on yet here.

  8. You've opened a can of worms here - imagine the tantrums if you end up not doing an Idol wrap up.

  12. When you blogged, I didn't used to watch Idol. I'd read your recaps and snort with laughter, then watch the performances on the web. Don't make me sit through it! I love love LOVE the blog.

  16. I can't wait for the Idol bloggin' to get started! Last year it made the Idol experience even better (not to mention more hilarious) and am sure this year will be just as fantastic!

    Can I just say now that I PRAY that Tom Williams leaves as soon as possible. Already I've seen enough of his "cuteness". I mean, seriously, lets just pretend that he wins (worst case scenario). He goes to release an album. Who exactly will he appeal to? 10 to 16 year old girls, is what. On his myspace he sings a song from Aladdin. Aladdin! Urgh.
    *Breathes* Okay, I've got that out of my system. So far, I like Wes, Mark and Sophie but can't wait to see what everyone does.

    Wes or Roshani to win.
