Australian Idol - Top 11 - Live Verdict

Submitted by djwright on Mon, 2005-09-19 17:44

***VOTING LINES NOW CLOSED***

Yes, it’s that time of the week again, can’t you smell it? It’s the smell of fear! For last night the Idols played and partied on stage, some of them even managed to sing in tune and now the time has come for Australia to speak, and for one of the Idol hopefuls to break down and cry as they’re told that no one loves them anymore and it’s time for them to go home.

You may recall that last night the judges dug into Dan Spillaine, congratulated Laura for singing mostly in tune, urged James to find his mojo, drooled over Dan England and begged Milly to show a little more spunk (or at the very least a little more skin). No one really got blasted, but a few left with the knowledge that their performance on the night wasn’t that fantastic, and that this might be their last time on stage… ever.

So, join me at 7.30pm EST tonight for the next Live Verdict show where the tears will flood the stage, James M and Andy G get to dribble a pile of crap that no one listens to and where the judges get to say goodbye to another hopeful that they helped put into the competition.

Idolblog Poll Results:
Prior to last night’s performances the bottom four were:

    Oops, my bad... I didn't do a poll this week did I?

After the performances the poll results are pretty close... There are 6 people with less than 7% of the votes...

Man that's a close poll, let’s see what happens…

***VOTING LINES NOW CLOSED***

Judge’s comments:

Mark The battle of the Divas, Anne verses Emily, two outstanding girls... Lee, he's not teh best singer in the world but a great entertainer.

Marcia My outstanding performances were Anne and Emily, Lee, oh yeah and Dan England

Kyle The best ones tonight without a doubt were Emily Anne and Dan England...

Group Song:
Happy Together by The Turtles

Shannon Noll Visit:
Shannon came to visit the stage tonight, just a bit of self promotion and to remember old times, old performances and the journey that Idol has put him on...

His second album "Lift" should be out fairly soon... And Shannon sounds like he'll be back in a couple of weeks to sing on stage with the band.

His one piece of advice? "Go with your heart."

LIVE VERDICT:

Unknown…

Safe to sing another day…

Bottom Three… but still safe

Going Home…

And thats it folks...

Bye bye Natalie, until next time... Or until we see you in a special Idol FHM edition with Lauren Street... now, there's a thought.

Roxane is over rated by the

Roxane is over rated by the judges I cant understand that, and they really swing James's way too. As for her majesty Laura, she say one of my favorite songs, and did not respect the lyrics she is either it immature or stupid, but I dont hate I just think she should have went before Chris or Natalie, now all those Dan E fans here what if Dan E was voted of before Laura, that would be a real heart breaker.I think Dan S had a bad night yesterday, but I think he may improve, I was glad to see the public give him another go. Remains to be seen, who knows Laura may surprise us all.

Roxane had a wrong song

Roxane had a wrong song choice last week, but she's great. I like her voice.

omg ESPECIALLY when the tv

omg ESPECIALLY when the tv died JUST when his verdict was announced. NOT HAPPY JAN!

my neck hurts from all that

my neck hurts from all that panic

I agree. I never liked

I agree. I never liked natalie. I thhink everyone is being way way too harsh on Laura here. I never had any real like for the girl, but really, she ISNT THAT BAD. she had one crap performance, and since then I have been really impressed with her vocal tone AND pitch, everyone. and she moves well too, unlike Natalie and Milly. And even though everyone seems to hate her, shes still being lovely to them. And come on, SOMEONE else must be voting for her apart from her "family". If you love Nat Nat so much, you should have voted more.

Heres to Milly being out next week!!

True. Plus, you can't deny

True.

Plus, you can't deny that Laura is the only bright spot in terms of image among other girls. It's a pleasure to watch her sing.  

its a pleasure to watch her

its a pleasure to watch her sing?

the other day i was thinking that laura could be used by ASIO in the torturing of potential security risks or terrorists...

just imagine it now...

"tell me the truth"
"no"
"you've given me no other choice..." *hits the video player and on comes any of laura's performances*
"no, no no, please don't... please, i'll tell you anything... anything, no more... aaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh"

I think it could work...

pleasure to watch... only if you stare at her almost non existant breasts perhaps...

check out the size of her snozz too!!!

WHO GOT FREAKED?? I GOT

WHO GOT FREAKED?? I GOT FREAKED SOOOOOOOO BAD COZ OF JAMES my lungs nearly stopped working for a moment there

One bad performance? More

One bad performance? More like all bad performances! Argh!! Why is Laura still in?? She definitely can't sing, I literally change the channel whenever she's up singing, then turn it back once she's finished. Her voice feels like paddle pop sticks running over my teeth. And well she's not exactly that great looking either, unless of cause you go for the whole dopey spoilt rich brat look... 

Plus what really gets me is that a great singer like Natalie is now out. I've been barracking for her ever since I saw her in the top 150, she's got a great voice and a fun personality (you can just tell by the songs she chooses). I am so annoyed that Laura of all people got more votes than Natalie, obviously she has a lot of rich friends and family who have nothing better to waste their money on.

Natalie you're the greatest! If I had more money, I would have voted heaps more. You deserve it!

seems like centrebet's going

seems like centrebet's going downhill

on ya bike, natalie thank

on ya bike, natalie


thank god laura is safe.  that was a close call.

?!? Laura is the worst

WTF?!? Laura is the worst singer out of all of them and shouldn't even be there!! The only reason she is there, is because she has 'the family' sending a bucketload of SMS each week.....Natalie was heaps better than Laura and Laura should have been dumped before they even got to the final 30!!

oh, i see.  you're just

oh, i see.  you're just bitter.

on ya bike as well, micky_schu.

you like this bike

you like this bike talk...perhaps you have one with no seat???

of course i'm bitter, a great singer got voted out because a crap one has heaps of connections.....its just not right!

first off what is wrong they

first off what is wrong they get rid of the good singers to keep a talentless female impersonator laura has to be the worse singer i have ever heard she is hopeless makes one wonder what goes on behind the scenes and if her daddy is rich cause she aint being kept due to her abilities she should have never made it out of the try outs i for one think that batman had more talent and was better looking it is a shame and disgrace what has happened for her to be kept on if she had one ounce of self respect she would bow out and fade into obscurity like the loser she is has been and always will be talk about your houso bush pig jesh and that is her good qualities. incase you havent noticed i literaly hate to see her still there makes you want to change the channel after this travisty and in case you are wondering I SAY IT IS FIXED

and that's why i love laura

and that's why i love laura : )

lol, not 2 sound offensive

lol, not 2 sound offensive or anything..just curious..r u a guy or a girl?

a guy ...  though not a

a guy ...  though not a very macho one.

lol, ok cos i just thought

lol, ok cos i just thought u were a girl at first..but then by some comments..i thought it sounded more like from a guy..

i'd make a pretty ugly

i'd make a pretty ugly girl.

ugly guy too for that matter :-(

lol aww..dont say that !!!

lol

aww..dont say that !!! i'm sure ur not and even if u are..i mean, who cares?! lol

..ok, this shouldnt b coming from me..cos i'm in LUV with James..*melts* BUT the point is..i'm sure ur not?? lol

its ok, all homos are

its ok, all homos are ugly.....hahahaha

being bad has nothing to do

being bad has nothing to do with being booted out.

if it did, how come roxy, dan spill and milly weren't in the bottom three?  

it's as though if you're going to be bad, it's better to be woeful (spillane, roxy)  than just mediocre (like natalie).         it's against the spirit of competition but there you go.

one of these days i'll have to start voting

fwiw, even mark agreed that

fwiw, even mark agreed that those 3 werent the worst 3 on the night (this includes laura!)

funny how Laura got

funny how Laura got congratulated for singing in tune......meaning it makes a change, meaning she cant fukkin sing!!!

HAHAHA ...HOPE i never see

HAHAHA ...HOPE i never see u again Nat!!!..so happy

but was sooo freaked out when James was in the bottom 3..*phew*

I agree. I never liked

I agree. I never liked natalie. I thhink everyone is being way way too harsh on Laura here. I never had any real like for the girl, but really, she ISNT THAT BAD. she had one crap performance, and since then I have been really impressed with her vocal tone AND pitch, everyone. and she moves well too, unlike Natalie and Milly. And even though everyone seems to hate her, shes still being lovely to them. And come on, SOMEONE else must be voting for her apart from her "family". If you love Nat Nat so much, you should have voted more.

Heres to Milly being out next week!!

if you call cant carry a

if you call cant carry a tune tone deaf and no sense of timing not bad she sucks should never have made it this far she should have been sent home from the tryouts this is the most discouraging group i have ever seen i only see maybe 3 out of the whole lot that even have a chance but it is by no means Laura she should go home and own up to who is getting paid off to keep her around like i said it aint her talent on stage that is keeping her there 

I completely disagree. I

I completely disagree. I think everyone has a prejudice against Laura now because of the first round. Her voice is BETTER THAN ROXY's. she just has nerves and makes her pitch wobbly. Id prefer her than Milly. Milly can sing but she is so so boring. Her "eccentricness" is like, one shoulder shake and one playful look at the camera.

I agree with you that this round of singers is lamer than other years, but I still think that Laura isnt "tone deaf" or "cant sing". Shes just the scapegoat for everyones crapness.

you keep telling yourself

you keep telling yourself that, i'd love to see her friends phone bills.....going broke to keep a shite singer in the contest......

lol yea! i so agree with

lol yea! i so agree with that. ..her family must b paying billions

cya Natalie.She wasn't the

cya Natalie.

She wasn't the worst performer last night - but she hasn't been one of the top ones in my books either.

my guess for bottom 3:

my guess for bottom 3: laura, dan s, roxy

going home: roxy

this is all assuming that the others are safe : )  i'm not sure about natalie to tell you the truth

i'm glad i hedged my bets on

i'm glad i hedged my bets on this lot :-)

edit: exactly how big is roxane's fanbase? i have a feeling she'll be going tonight (though i hope it's dan s!).   the wildcard popular vote was won by daniel ahead of roxy, back when roxy was almost tolerable. what chance does she have now?

Well I guess Roxane's fan

Well I guess Roxane's fan base is quite significant considering she escaped being in the bottom 3 ahead of Laura after a not-so-good performance.

you seem to forget... chris

you seem to forget...

chris luder n her seem to fly around in similar circles, so while chris did leave last week i wonder if it was because their fanbase were split...

now chris' fanbase from home are possibly voting for roxy...

the smaller the group teh easier it is to pick, like when lee leaves his fanbase is naturally going to go and vote for Dan england...

i doubt that roxy will go tonight

yeh, but luderchris had no

yeh, but luderchris had no fans either!

heh yeah he did and

heh

yeah he did and does...

just that theyre also the same fans of Roxane 1 fan base, 2 people... always going to mean that one of them will have to go sometime...

GO AWAY NATALIE!!!!

GO AWAY NATALIE!!!!

latest odds:ENGLAND, Dan 

latest odds:

ENGLAND, Dan  2.50 ROBERTSON, Anne 5.00 DeARAUGO, Kate  5.50 WILLIAMS, Emily   5.50 HARDING, Lee 11.00 KANNIS, James 15.00 EDWARDS, Milly  17.00 SPILLANE, Daniel 17.00 LEBRASSE, Roxane  21.00 GISSARA, Laura   51.00

who should i put some money on?  if dan spillane can get away with such an atrocious performance, perhaps he'll be around a while?  i think we can pretty much rule out laura, roxy, milly, james, and emily from winning the whole thing.   dan e isnt worth backing at those odds. so who's left?  lee, anne,  kate?

same as i said last week, i dont think any of them should win, but someone has to. who will it be?

Bad luck Natalie, you don't

Bad luck Natalie, you don't have to be dead to be stiff.

I think it's pretty obvious

I think it's pretty obvious that Laura has all of her Italian links voting for her, even though she is really crap.

I feel so sorry for Natalie, she was quite good and definitely better than Laura. It should've been a top 12.....Laura is a pretender riding the wave of her family and friends money and votes....so unfair, but hey, her luck will run out eventually.

P.S. Chris Luder was crap too, he couldn't sing if he tried....and I think he did!!

P.P.S. Guilt Trip, are you a fairy or what?!?

dj, can you do the chart

dj, can u do the chart thing u did last yr of the popularity trend?

was anyone at the concert

was anyone at the concert today?

did people boo casey? if so:

did people boo casey?

if so: hahahah!

Daniel Spillane's

Daniel Spillane's performance was a disaster. He should've been the one who got the boot last week. I'm shocked that Natalie was gone. What a shame!

I'm bias...cause Kate's my

I'm bias...cause Kate's my fav...but don't disregard Emily...she has a great voice...the two divas- Emily and Anne...they may be a hard act to follow...

laura was about the 5th

laura was about the 5th worst on sunday, so she didnt deserve to leave.  these anti-laura people are more entertaining than the songs.

Unfortunately ...the guys

Unfortunately ...the guys have all the girls voting for them...so I can image Lee, Daniel and James hanging around a lot longer...Dan E is a given stayer...(although I was surprised James just got through )...come on... vote for talent...and it looks like the girls have plenty of that going for them... 

By the way, I had a feeling Nat would be going...(shock!!!!)...I've worked it out...it's always going to be the person you least expect!?!  Laura will slowly knock each one off one by one...ha, ha...

I agree, the girls have it

I agree, the girls have it all over the guys in the talent department ... with the exception of Laura of cause...

But yeah, VOTE FOR TALENT, NOT FOR LOOKS!!
