    Okay, I love Bobby. Upfront I'll just say that.

    Here's why I think so many people like Bobby: he's different. What I mean is; I've seen all four seasons of Idol. A couple American ones as well. World Idol. The lot that was shown here, basically. I've heard all these Idol singers. But I've never heard anyone like Bobby before. That's why I like him. And with his different style, it just works for me.

    But I realise that his style difference may make some people cringe. I can understand it, I know family members that do just that. ;)

    Also, though, someone here mentioned Lavina. I'll use her as a comparison; I've wanted her gone since the beginning. Why? Because she's a clone. A clone. I mean no disrespect to Lavina, none at all; all I'm saying is that I've heard it before. Your sister was here last year singin' the exact same damn thing! You've got a great voice, but it's nothing new.




    To the people that hate Idol with a passion, that's fine. I just find it amusing that it is sometimes said they have no talent or some such rubbish and have to make it themselves to truly know this and that. Cool. I like music. I like listening to it. But I don't care how I came to listen to the music I like or the struggles they made?I'm just glad I found it. I may not have the most appreciative view of music then, but that doesn't concern me. Plus, it's just me. Not you.





    Bobby's first top 12 performance is still the best one in my opinion.

    Damien teh cool accent man would be my second top notch bloke.

    Oh, and Reigan was hot. She shouldn't have left so soon. :(/>

    your post does make alot of sense..yes Emily & Lavina are alot alike, but that's because they were both good !! That's not a bad thing though.

    Just being different for difference sake doesn't make it good IMHO.

    Dean is very much like many rockers...but for mine that's good. It works.

    Chris also... although his voice is a little different, he's a versatile rocker who works well on stage. I feel that not many share this opinion & Chris won't go much further from last weeks results show, but he should. Dean may do..he'll get the " cutesy" vote too.

    Except that with the exception of her version of Bring Me To Life all Lavina did was essentially the disco/diva thing and that was it. Emily embraced the various styles and did spin some (eg. her version of Bohemien Rhapsody) while Lavina was doing much of the same thing all the time when it kept showing that it didn't work. Out of the 5 females she had the strongest voice, and didn't use it by selecting some of the more contemporary songs that none of the others had a chance in hell of pulling off.

    "...just 12 songs of droning & or wailing. No versatility for mine"

    Droning and wailing from musicians...who needs that?
    Makes me hungry for the next Radiohead album. ;)

    Yes it seems Booby Flynn is no longer for the win :eek:

    I was flicking between Idol and Mythbusters, I know that Lisa and Ricky were part of the final 3, but cna anyone tell me which one was in the final 2?

    Also did Mark Holden say anything? If he did, I missed it, he seemed rather peeved that's for sure.

    [face_dancing] Australia finally got it right this week. The final 3 was spot on.

    Next Lisa , then Ricky the following week for mine :)

    I was forced to watch this since my mum wanted to know who was voted out. I must admit, the guitar ensemble piece was nice.

    Bobby will still get a recording contract from his. plus he'll sell more records than whoever wins it, you heard it here first. he's that much better than anyone who's left. Lisa and Ricky? lol.

    they should make voting free but limited to one vote per person per phone. then you'd get a much better representation.

    I personally think this is the best thing that coulda happened to Bobby's career...
    He's a quirky, talented musician... but he's not a pop idol.

    Same with Lisa and Damien, and Chris.
    I can see them all using this as some sort of platform.

    My bet for this comp is Jess...
    She is by far the strongest voice of what's left.
    Plus, she just fits the mould for what Idol is after.

    I'm thinking a Jess and Dean final.

    My prediction for Australian Idol: Ricky Muskrat. Er, Muscat.

    Not because he deserves to or because I want him to, but simply because young teenage girls are stupid and have too much access to mobile phones.

    :D

    Not even close. He'll be gone the next time the judges don't bash his song or performance. Gone.
