Well, that's that over for another year.
'The best Idol ever!' the media kept proclaiming. I can't be alone in not believing that. Perhaps they confused 'best' with 'worst'. Maybe the person who wrote Andrew G's cue cards was in charge of the tag line for Idol this year.
The singer that won was the one that should have won. The one they had picked to win from the very beginning of the series. Good voice, good stage presence, great first single.
But overall he is boring
I will bet anyone who wants to take it that his next single - if indeed there is one or anyone plays it - will be the cover of a 'sixties or seventies rock classic'.
But good onya Wes! Personally I think the title of Australian Idol is the kiss of death for any serious musician. Barring Guy Sebastian who was the first.
I don't think Luke should have won either. Maybe Mark or Chrislyn - although I don't think they wanted another female idol. The last two haven't exactly made the recording companies millions. Come to think of it, none of the winners have. You're better off coming second or third - Anthony Callea, Dean Geyer, Shannon Noll, Axle Whitehead, Rickie-Lee...
Can't wait 'til next year.
