Thank God last night was the final regular episode of Australian Idol because we’re seriously bored already. Last night was basically a repeat of last week – Stan Walker and Hayley Warner were selected as the final two contestants and they each sang THREE songs. James Johnson was predictably sent packing. Two things were confirmed last night – we have serious crushes on schoolteacher/former contestant Toby (who was in the audience) and Michael Buble.
Stan and Hayley each came out and sang a song, then the judges gushed about how amazing they both are. Yawn. It doesn’t even matter who wins next week, they’re both going to have recording careers and probably do quite well. The new single that each Idol will record was revealed and we liked Hayley’s song better. Stan’s single about a mystery box (oops, wrong show) or little black box was a bit naff. They could have easily done this in a one hour show, complete with a little Michael Buble number. And the poster in the audience that said “We love the Boob” was priceless. Idol producers – if you do come back next year, trim it down to an hour. We can only watch Ricki-Lee’s Rexona commercial about 50 times before we want to throw something at the TV screen. Next week – on to the Sydney Opera House for the grand final!
