Australian Idull

Will someone please put a stop to this BULLSHIT!..........what was meant to be a great way for young eager performers to get their feet into the music industry has now become a milking machine for Sony BMG.................it seems all these cunts do is release artist after artist with 99% of them FLOPPING after their initial album release!

Every year the same thing happens, a whole bunch of people are picked to participate in the final 12, and once the winner is announced.........we then get a NEW bunch of record deals for half of the people on the show...........the only problem is, hardly any of them actually get anywhere. Which leads me to ask the question "why do people bother with Idol to begin with?"...........sure it's exposure, but it's also career suicide imo!!!!!!!................other than 2 of the original idols from the Aussie version, no other Idol winner or contestant has lasted beyond a second album. Their first albums do well because they get released quickly, it flies off shelves because all the 12 year old girls and 45 year old Mothers are caught up in the hype of the show and want SOMETHING from it. Then comes the "real" album which is the second release..........and what happens?............a poor debut and then a quick slide off the charts soon after...............it's a mess.
There is such a stigma that comes with being on the show, and if any of these contestant have EYES they would see that it hardly guarantees a proper long career. It's all 15 minutes of fame bullshit, why would you want it if it's all so easily thrown away by the record executives????

Guy Sebastion had a good run with his career, 3 albums [each selling less and less mind you]....Shannon Noll.............probably the most successful out of the bunch and still not doing too badly, but like Guy, his album sales are dwindling as well, Casey Donovan the lard has vanished..........Anthony Calia and his outdated MESS of songs have pretty much disappeared since he "came out".............though he came out AFTER his second album flopped, so his sexuality really had nothing to do with it............Kate DerAgoui or however you spell that SHIT had the same SHITTY run that Casey had, and because she was flopping......they stuck her in the ABYSMAL Young Divas girl group! Rickie Lee did alright with her first album.............where has her second album gone?..............Paulini, decent first album, second FLOP album..........then stuck in Young Divas as well.
The cycle just keeps going and people seem to ignore it when they go in for their Idol auditions, and as the years go on and the show continues........it's hard to actually give a shit about who wins, because it all starts to just look like "oh another Idol winner, i wonder how long this one will last" type of thing...............i mean who really cares anymore?

As for OTHER Idols in other countries, the ONLY one who seems to have produced ANY sort of successful international artist was American idol with Kelly Clarkson, her 3rd album may have been a flop...........but when you actually hear the album and STOP comparing it to her last one, you'll actually find a very well written and strong group of songs, SHE has longevity because she actually HAS something to say........she's taken herself AWAY from the Idol buzz and really created a career for herself. She took a risk with her new album, but it will be easy for her to bounce back with her next one because she has actually LASTED a decent amount of time and people know she's talented. Who else from the U.S?.............Ruben Studdard [sp?], flop........Clay Aiken..........LOL! fucking FLOP [and well deserved]......that's pretty much it, or at least the only bunch i've heard of from that end of the world. Other places?..............the UK......i can't even REMEMBER the name, but there was that black haired dude with the tiny head who looked like a fag, he flopped......err......i THINK someone else was launched from the UK one as well but i honestly can't fucking remember them.

I'm all for "talent shows".................some people are against them because they feel "oh, we struggle so hard as artist and then people just pick up a contract so easy off tv, it's not real"...............i don't agree with that, if you want commercial success then i say go for ANY opportunity that is on offer, why bother STRUGGLING when you have an opportunity to actually make something of yourself..................fuck that, i'd fucking take it. The only problem is.........Idol has gone from "finding Australia's new talent" to "finding the next milkable nothing".............it's already been on for like....6 years or something...........how much longer will it go for?.............by the end of it's run we will most likely only have 2 Idols who still have SOME SORT of a career..............the rest are either going to go back to their old shitty lives OR be local acts at the nearest Casino.

Australian Idol.....................................no.

Well, Carrie Underwood is another US American Idol winner who is actually doing okay. But I agree with you, if you're really talented you will break through no matter what. Austrialian/Dutch/American/Uzbekistan Idol: NO.
