You say that now, but mark my words... they'll manage to find a barrel UNDERNEATH that barrel, and scrape the bottom of that.

There's already something like this in the UK - "Stars in Their Eyes Kids", which is basically an overrated talent show where talentless kids battle to make it through to the final, where the public decide who the winner is.

I think they're called something else now that S-Club have split up...Another band for the "dirty old men" age range perhaps?

I'm ashamed to say it, but I've actually done some moving light programming for S-Club Junior concerts...

I find American Idol reprehensible, but for the matter of fairness, I would prefer that they got rid of the whole letting America vote thing, and just let the judges pick who wins. After all, if popular music or movies have shown us anything, it is that the American populace is bordering on near retarded intelligence. By at least placing the power in the hands of those who actually have an inkling of what comprises real talent, the show would be a bit more credible to me.

I have seen so many comercials for that on tv.....it sounds so stupid and pointless...plus kids are to young to compete in a singing competition like this...

I agree with you asianlightning, they should let the judges choose, or at least have a say in it......they choose people in the beginning to be on the show....but afterwards as the show progresses besides insulting the contestents and saying if it was crap or talent..they really have no point in being there

Coming soon to FOX: S Club Juniors join forces with American Juniors, in order to smite the infamous American Idols and Pop Idols. Backed by Simon, Paula, The Other Guy, and the stupidity of the American public, you can now vote for your strategy and choose which side will win in the Pop Armageddon: Battle of the Ages™! .: Logos crash, resulting in an explosion :.

What annoys me the most is that Channel 10 have FINALLY stopped cramming Big Brother down the throats of anyone who watches just 30 seconds of a commercial break, only to START cramming Australian Idol down our throats. Damnit, Channel 10 - stop plugging your shows to death and let the VIEWERS decide what they want to watch! We all know what you have to offer - so shut the fuck up and stop plugging your shows to death, arrrrrrrgggggghhhhh!!!

Okay, my rant's over now.

i watch the auditions, to laugh at the asswholes, but i dont care who wins.  i'll pretend to care at school sometimes- its hard to escape the talk of it.  i liked ruben more, clay was all cockey and stuff.  but i think that texas girl, Kimberly, should've won, she had a good voice.  but i really dont give a damn about it and i wish more kids my age didn't either.

When I watched the Teen Chocie Awards (which I only really watched to see evanescence) almost every category was 'best reality show moment' or 'grossest reality show moment', etc.  Every time someone who won an award and thanked fox i went 'BOO'!

I haven't read any of your posts, and I dont care. American idol, as well as the uk counterparts uk idol and popstars the rivals are so intrinsically evil that they fuel my very existance. The creation of television so horrible, so fucking destructive in their contempt for the very essence of human being fires me to my very core and in doing so almost becomes worthwhile. I say almost because I would rather be in a drug induced comatic stupor and wile away my days digesting my own organs than have this trash released on unsuspecting kids. i hate the people that created this, and nothing short of their crucifixtion would sate me.

We have had three similar shows here. Germany seeks the Superstar, Popstars and Starsearch. Especially German seeks the Superstar was rather boring because it was a stupid commercial show for an untalented guy called Dieter Bohlen (is anybody remember here Modern Talking?).

World Idol does not deserve its own thread

But atleast A revamp of this useless thing. Poland, germany, holland, lebenon and belgium where hillariously terrible. The canadain guy and kelly clarkson where good singers. Guy sebastion (the aussie guy) sang well As did the norwiegen guy. The UK guy was speccrapular, seriuosley. Dissapointing.

S-Club 8. They really are awful and will atrract a lot of "dirty old men" as you say. Living in the UK I have to put up with Pop Idol, Popstars and a menagerie of such crap. I have not seen any of it and I will never want to.

No I didn't, but I have seen some terrible versions of songs on the early stages of Pop Idol and am I the only one thinks making national jokes out of innocent people who just think they are better at singing than they really are is a fair way to make a TV program. No I don't think it's fair game because they went on volountarily. I think it's cruel and evil. Almost as cruel and evil as the way the soulless record companies exploit these hopefuls to make a quick buck. Take S Club 7, for every £1million they made as a group (so split seven ways) Simon Cowell and everyone at Evil Pop Record Company™ took home £80million or something grossly unfiar like that.

If they're that good, they can make it on their own.

Michelle (the winner of Pop Idol 2 recently) is a good example of someone who would never have made it if it wasn't for that program. She's a size 20, with a great voice and a bubbly personality and a great outlook on life. But Pop is all manufactured and plastic so she would've never got a deal the traditional way. Though give a year and I guarantee she won't be in the charts any more. But that's OK, there idols are queueing up to be exploited and some other "sensation" throwaway will be taking her place.

I like him. The TV producers will have told him to play up his bad boy image, but when it comes down to it he's going to have to tell people that they suck and to piss off at some point, not an easy job. Ant and Dec are there for moral support.

(sorry, I have serious animosity toward people who cannot sing worth beans, and besides, FOX is takng complete advantage of thses poor people just to make some quick bucks.) It's pathetic. You want real TV? Watch any episode of Farscape, or Nero wolfe, or Futurama (well, not all of futurama...), The Chronicle...all great TV shows that got cancelled. The public is just buying into all the hype that FOx has put on it. Ten bucks this show will make people go "American what?" when asked if they watched it in tenty years. It's gonn abe gone in less than that. I refuse to what something that degenerates society into hype-addled, brain-dead zombies. End of story. (as you can tell, I hate this show with a passion.)


Agreed, "reality" tv is the spawn of the Robot Devil, then again, good TV shows with names that happen to start with "F" appear to be prematurely doomed anyway...

Futurama
Farscape
Family Guy
Firefly (never saw it, but it seems to fit the pattern)

reality dren, if it didn't outright *kill* Futurama, at least had a hand in it's demise, just like those crappy skiffy channel "original" dren shows like "crossing over", "scare tactics", and "tremors" had a hand in killing Farscape, another Brilliant Sci-Fi series that had deep characters, well written plotlines, humor, drama, compelling stories....

skiffy decided to throw it all away for some snake-oil peddler who preys on the hopes and fears of morons, a show about a "starlet" showcasing pranks idiots play on other idiots, and a show about mutant killer worms

oh this sounds *sooo* much better than Farscape...

(by the way i was being sarcastic...)

Kurt won World Idol and the airport here in Bergen was swamped with fans when Kurt returned home.
The highest bid on his album is currently $31 (+$5) on Ebay with 9 days to go! The album is also number 1 at amazon.de (what, the Germans didn't like their own Alexander?)  tongue
