  • Pop Idol 2

    Well Pop Idol 2 is down to it’s last eight, and I’m left wondering if anyone is still watching it.

    The embarrassing chart entries of David Sneddon (in at 38) and Kym Marsh (in at 35) this week are graphic displays of how short-lived the careers of these manufactured arists really are. Sneddon is giving up his “singing career” in favour of writing, and Kym Marsh is reportedly being dropped from her record label, and they follow a string of artists from TV talent shows that have fallen by the wayside over the past couple of years.

    The latest that I have seen is the five rejects from Popstars -The Rivals that didn’t make One True Voice (who were a complete flop by the way) have formed a group called Phixx and entered the Top 40 this week at number 10.

    The top twelve contestants are favourites for Christmas number one with a cover of the John Lennon classic War Is Over, and I am wondering if the record company even cares about what will happen to the winner once they have bagged this coveted No 1 spot.

    Anyway the favourite to win at the moment is Susanne at 5/2, I’m not convinced myself, but am as sad as ever and will predictably be watching.

    The odds to win are as follows:

    Susanne 5/2

    Andy 3/1

    Roxanne 3/1

    Sam 4/1

    Chris 10/1

    Mark 16/1

    Michelle 20/1

    Kim 33/1

    My money’s on Chris :lol: – but by the looks of it, he’s a long shot

    I'm still watching BC

    I think they're saying Kim's expected to go tonight (apparently her MP has been campaigning to keep her in :blink: ).

    I think that Roxanne is one of the better singers in there, Suzanne has a unique voice which may carry her through. And little Chris? Bless him :blink: I always think of him as a cross between a young Morrisey and a vicar :lol: .

        Hi Milly

        Yep - both shockingly bad!!!!!

        I've been watching each week too, and to be honest I have problems remembering who is who as they are all so samey, (I sound like SUCH a moaner!!).


        • #5
          No, they both stayed in

          HOW on earth did Roxanne end up in the last three? :blink:

          Bye bye Kim (it was the song that let her down).

          BTW, what WAS Chris singing/doing? :blink:

            B.C. what good judges we would make but who would have thought kim would have gone out


            • #7
              Milly - I always get it wrong - every week without fail!!!

              I thought that Kim didn't deserve to go out this week, but I don't think she would have lasted the distance anyway. As for her MP campaigning to keep her in....I'm just glad he's not my MP, or I would have serious issues about his priorities!!!

              Chris really should have gone out :sad: - what was that all about!!!??? :unsure:

                Never watch it - the wife thinks its wonderful though ... each to their own.

                Howard:"You wanna be careful, before you know it you'll wake up in a bush singing songs about brooms"

                Vince:"You don't know anything about me. Do you know anything about me?"

                Howard:"I know...of you"

                Vince:"Yeah, well, if you knew me you'd know that I don't sing songs about brooms...I sing songs about love...

                Lovely lady with the eye

                Lovely lady with the eye

                You've only got one but it's a good one

                Lovely lady with the eye, the eye, the eye, the eye, the eye

                coming forward on a string, thats not normal, urgh

                Yeah! I'm in a band..."

                  Pop idle 2 .... what?

                  Kim, Sam Roxanne .... who?

                  "Chris really should have gone out - what was that all about!!!??? " Eh??

                  "HOW on earth did Roxanne end up in the last three? " Pardon?

                  Is this a parallel universe?

                  Are the fairies at the bottom of my garden?

                  Is there life on Uranus?

                  Is there anybody there?

                  Hello,... hello ....

                  Am I missing something?

                        I'm really sad that Andy has gone. I thought that he was really sweet (and he was easy on the eyes too!).

                        I think they are going to massacre some Beatles songs next week :unsure: I'm afraid to watch!!
