Australian Idol Recrap (Motown & results) and the ARIAs: A Review

Posted in australian idol, australian television, music by deflowerd on October 20, 2008

Well well well. I know this is later than usual, but hey; suck it. At least I get off my (metaphorical) arse and write a meaningless post about a reality television show every now and then – what do you do? Huh? Oh, you have a legitimate job? Oh, I see.

Australian Idol Recap (Rock night)

Posted in australian idol, australian television, music by deflowerd on October 12, 2008

So, last week we lost the amazing Madam Parker. This week we’re faced with the prospect of a damn good sock-rocking. Will the contestants rock our socks off, or will they remain firmly upon our sweaty Sunday feet? All hail The Rock. The night starts off a little rocky, with the audience mics (or the fake audience sounds) fading in and out during the opening credits.

Australian Idol Recap (Ooops)

Posted in australian idol, australian television, music by deflowerd on September 24, 2008

For any regular readers (if there are any…?), I must apologise for not recapping the latest week of Oz Idol. I was lying on the couch and my laptop was alll the way over there and… well… I got nothin’. Highlights: Brooke got eliminated, Chrislyn was awesome, Brooke got eliminated, Tom cried, Brooke got eliminated, Brooke got eliminated.

I’ve got a pile of university assignments to attend to so I can’t promise I’ll be recapping next week, but I’ll try. Again, I don’t even know how many people actually care, so I can’t promise anything. Am I talking to myself? This is freaking me out.

Australian Idol Recap (Top 12 Week One results)

Posted in australian idol, australian television, music by deflowerd on September 15, 2008

Jimbob begins by telling us there’ll be no more “after the break stuff”. Aw, the death of a tradition. Andy has the bottom 3 on cards in his pocket. Straight to business; who are they?

Australian Idol Recap (Wildcard Results)

Posted in australian idol, australian television, music by deflowerd on September 8, 2008

Heyyy peeps. It’s Wildcard time. Draw Four! We recap last night’s performances and they’re still just as unimpressive as they were a day ago. Sophie really annoys me. She has massive audience support though (or maybe that was for Andrew G…).

Australian Idol Recap (Wildcard)

Posted in australian idol, australian television, music by deflowerd on September 7, 2008

Sooo I didn’t get to sit and watch this properly because it’s Father’s Day and I was hanging out with my father. My opinions of the contestants still stand; love Roshani and Nicole, dislike Sophie, Jonny, James etc. Unsure why Fat Brooke got a second chance. Unsure why Voice-Lost Brooke didn’t. Luke Dinkens is a cracker, but not the greatest singer, although I’d rather him through instead of heaaaaps of the others. Freaky Fringe has the strongest image, which is why she got a chance but I really don’t think she’s anything special.

On the off-chance that any of the contestants read this; it’s not personal. You all seem like great people, so don’t take this in a negative way – after all, who am I to give my opinion on reality tv contestants? I can’t sing for shiz. So if any contestants read this, feel free to drop me a comment like Hayley Corrigan from Adelaide did.

I’ll blog tomorrow night’s results episode in a more complete and proper manner. Seeya then!

Australian Idol Recap (Semi-Final 3)

Posted in australian idol, australian television, music by deflowerd on September 3, 2008

Oh god, I can’t wait until I only have to do this once or twice a week. Last night was pretty interesting; we had a lost voice, a sugary sweet quarter boyband, and a sheep shearer. We kick off this evening with the revelation of the next 2 contestants through to the top 12.

Australian Idol Recap (Audition Night 2)

Posted in australian idol, australian television, music, television by deflowerd on August 25, 2008

We say goodbye to Melbourne and the MCG’s hallowed turf (if you mention the MCG you must use the phrase ‘hallowed turf’. It is law), and move on to Perth. The auditions are being held at… the yacht club. Say WAt? Hardly the MCG. Ah well.
