Hmm
21 May 2012 | by WakenPayneSee all my reviews

Australian Idol, The One Show That Was Once On Australian Television That Shows Just How Much We Are Prepared To Listen To America's Taste And Copy It, I Won't Complain Whenever We Become Independent Its Visa Versa.

I Just Have To Ask One Thing, Who Has Actually Been On This Show? I Am Trying To Figure That Out "Who Has Become Famous In Australia Yet Alone Worldwide Off This Show?" At Least With Ida Madsen From Denmark's X-Factor Her Record Has Gone To #1 In That Country And With Good Reason, In This People Sang And Won Then They Had To Deal With "Who Are You Again? I Think I've Seen You Before?" I Know No Artist Will Stand The Test Of Time(Thats Right, None.) But You Expect Someone To Last More Than Overnight.

Overall If You Want Good Australian Talent I Suggest Listening To The Metal Band "Sick Puppies", Those Guys Are Fantastic.
