World Idol

Someone had to start this thread.

Caught the end of this show last night. Never really cared for American idol, but it was interesting to see all the winners from around the world. I didn't realize the show was so huge.


In case anyone missed it, the big surprise was that Kurt Nilsen the Norwegian idol won. He beat out second place Kelly Clarkson by 5 points.



At the end, he did a killer rendition of U2's Beautiful Day.


The South African idol, Heinz took third.




And the British idol, Will Young took a respectable fourth.



I don't recall what place Canada's own Ryan Malcom was but it was somewhere near the bottom.

Other comments:

The Polish idol is a hottie



And I like the Aussie's hair.

I honestly don't think Kurt would have won had he not picked such a widely appealing pop song by one of the greatest bands ever that have a huge international following.

Not to take away from his voice or anything, but the song definetly helped him more than it helped anyone else.

Cheers ... Ian :)

Correction: I think I'm completely out to lunch on third and fourth. Hold on while I try to dig up the results list.

isn't that the guy that was told he "sings like an angel, but look likes a hobbit"?

YOU GO LITTLE MAN!
I thought that was a seriously unnesscary comment.

yes... and
honestly why does an "idol" have to be attractive anyways. Since when does attractivness have anything to do with who or what you are or have done in life.

I found the comment uncalled for also.

oh and HA HA HA HA HA he totally has the louie Anderson thing going on.

Totally.

Simons a cockroach. He seems to have this "I'm larger then life" attitude about himself.

Personally I find him to be dull... and his judgement sucks.

My oppinion is not what his oppinion was usually. Mayhaps the show should have been called Simons idol, in stead of world idol.
Because I can garuntee alot of us had a difference in oppinions.

the winner's voice kicked asssssssssssssss. but yeah, i think the song had a lot to do with it.

he's creepy looking. appearance is HUGELY important to being a fucking pop star. whoever in this thread says it's not is obviously on the crack.

and its some good crack too.!

I'm sorry but we aren't all superficial(sp?) like that.

I've bought cd's and music solely on the talent i heard off the radio before seeing ones face before.

So it can be done.......
and these days it doesn't matter. they can take a piece of shit and make it look like a brick of gold.

Thus the importance of image in an "idol" contest.

Image is everything in the pop world.

Talking about appearances, I thought the German idol looked like one of those goth kids that had a penchant for trenchcoats and played Dungeons and Dragons all day.

A pulled back pony tail and a goatee does not a pop star make.

it was funny that in all the countries the top 3 were consistant until they came to the Pan-Arabic Region , and all of a sudden the German dude , and Ryan Malcom were on top ...could this be because Germany and Canada didn't support the Iraq war?

Those guys both have a look.
Besides, there's not "pop" stars.

Not pop "pop" stars anyways, more like rock/pop stars.

either way, I'm not gonna argue about this shit. What was said to him on national TV was totally cruel and NOT NECCESARY to be said so rudely. I mean, a hobbit?

that's just fucking rude.
