Yes, tonight one of the Idols will be feeling “so lonely that they could die

Roxane, Chris, Natalie,

Roxane, Chris, Natalie, Lauren, Leah Rushforth, Victoria McGee

Of the above names mentioned, I think Lauren could have stood a chance if she actually chose the right songs.

I think they'll have to dumb

I think they'll have to dumb down the winner's single this year to fit Kate and Lee's vocal range. There's no way Kate or Lee can sing either of "Angels Brought Me Here" or "Listen With Your Heart".

Comparing performances last

Comparing performances last night - Kate made a insipid, unmusical mess of both songs (the final note  of The Impossible Dream belonged on the worst audtions excerpts list), while Emily did one reasonable song and a disastrous version of 'Can't help falling'. And they were safe????? 

I really hope the stories about the money behind Kate are not true, although the world would start to make sense again if it were. Lee is good entertainment value at least, and his performances last night were pretty good. I am one of those who thought he had no musical substance, but he has improved vastly, to give credit where it's due.

People whinging about Dan being timid or boring - you should go back to your Robbie Williams video clips and wait for puberty. When everything is said and done, you have to be able to LISTEN to someone's voice. And Dan was the man. If he didn't fit the mould with his dreads and his refusal to buckle under pressure to be made a shrink-wrapped idol with a 'hey-the-cameras-on-say-something-witty' personality, all I can say is 'thank heavens'. He leaves the show, like Anne, with his dignity intact and a soundtrack he can be proud of.

There will forever be an England.

P.S. All you people with the slant against Emily because you presume she has overwhelming Kiwi support, just chill. The Italian community got behind Anthony, the rural NSW community got behind Shannon. It's the way things are in this world. And it is leaning towards at least 'soft' racism, the kind most people don't think applies to them.

 The comments about money

 The comments about money behind Kate have to be true. I honestly belive she coulnd't have gotten this far without it.She has got a good voice but in comparison to the other three she's boring. sitting through one of her 4 minute performances is like jamming a pen in your eye for 4 hours, painfull stupid and useless. send her back to a Karioke bar somewhere in Bendigo. Weve had enough!

what is this money

what is this money thing.....? who has money...??

re the last ps bit, YEAH!

re the last ps bit, YEAH! right on brother. crimsonmoon wouldn't be all baggin baggin emilys supposed 'yelling' if she were a man too, in my opinion.

id rather some feelin in the HOUSE.

If all of you are saying

If all of you are saying Idol is a joke why are you still watching it?

it's like watching a car

it's like watching a car wreck - people like watching disasters

Omg dan went.....Why was

Omg dan went.....

Why was Kate safe?

omg omg omg

jUST GOES TO SHOW THE IDOL

jUST GOES TO SHOW THE IDOL PHENONEMON NEEDS A REVAMP-

Money can buy votes-Kate is living testimony to that!

Can't sing-can't hold a note and the prancing poodle Lee-well just shows what aheap of 13 year olds with mobiles can do!

Why don't they make voting free-that way we would not have the "money" influence!

We are buying Dan's records-I am sure he'll make heaps- as for Lee and Kate, well  time will tell.

Bye kiddies! 

see my comment on kate

see my comment on kate further below.........

hey, blog this. this is my

hey, blog this.

this is my first time. but i'm a 100% idol watcher. i'm also smart.

bye bye dan. marcia was right, he is centered. its just that you're orbiting planet bore bore. he has to get more comfortable with himself first. im sure this is a reason why emily is a stand-out.

Emily is an over rated

Emily is an over rated sceaming wrench, cant stand her, England had the best voice in this comp; I wish all you NZ that voted for her would go home and take her with you. Dan is a true muscian and his voice is an extention of that, you have no idea what you are saying and you are far from smart, youre a dill.

dan maybe a 'musician' okay,

dan maybe a 'musician' okay, i can buy that. there are heaps loads yonkers of people that may instruments and sing. so yes, i admit hes a musician. but im not feeling anything new, raw, sexy, alive from him at all. hes timid and seems even to have self esteem issues.  it is hard for guys in this country to show emotion though for sure. but hes no top dog.

 He will have a contract no

 He will have a contract no worries, has a very good voice, Lee adds fun to the comp; and as far as the girls go, I think Kate has a better sound than Emily, just so upset that Dan was voted of after what I thought and many others was his best performance in the series, I am so over the diva's Emily screams, she does, and last night she was terrible, cant understand why or who is voting for her, she should have been in the bottom two last night, and Kate did not have a great night either. My family have been in this industry for years, and I can tell you that England was by far a better singer than any of those left, he does lack stage presence and that is what let him down, but I think he will do well out of this.

I agree totally with you. 

I agree totally with you.  Dan was the best singer by a country mile.  I loved watching it every week to see him sing.  I agree with Kyle and believe that he will have a contract in the near future.

I am so DISGUSTED with the vote, that I refuse to watch that sh*t any more.  I hope Lee wins now, just to show how much of  A BLOO*Y JOKE IT IS!!

All you idiots who voted for Lee and Kate should be ashamed of yourselves.  I can't believe that Kate and Lee are still there and Dan has gone. 

SHAME SHAME SHAME SHAME SHAME SHAME SHAME SHAME SHAME SHAME SHAME SHAME ON YOU!!!

It is Shame Shame on

It is Shame Shame on Australia, this would have to be the worse decision by far, how on earth can Kate and Emily, Lee survive over Dan, what an absolute disgrace, money speaks and so does the amount of NZ that must be here voting for Emily, and we know who is voting for Lee, underage kids, that think he is a clown. Talk about rascism how Emily can be there is pathetic, all those voting for her are living here and are rascists against Australians, so stick that up youre nose.

you are a racist pig . i bet

you are a racist pig . i bet you have some ethnic blood in you and are to stupid to realize what you are saying. I cant believe in the year 2005 that we are still getting coments like you have posted. One day you will have some coment made about you that is not to your liking and i hope it hurts . I have a soninlaw that is kiwi and he is not my favrite person but not once has his heritage come into it . So all i can say is get a life and if you dont like what you watch then turn off , simple as that.

Dan can sing better than the

Dan can sing better than the rest put together. All the people who voted for others will probably agree with that. But lets not forget it's also a popularity contest,and a reality tv show in all it's cheesy glory. It will be hard to watch next week without Dan though.

Pretty silly comment about racisim though don't you think? Is everyone voting for blue-eyed, blonde haired Kate making a vote for white Australia, or do people who not vote for Dan harbour prejudices against 'hippies', or maybe Lee's supporters are a bunch of trailer park emos? Don't let your emotions let your darker instincts take over. Diversity in taste does make the world a better place. Hey, that rhymes :)!

Dan is boring. That's it.

Dan is boring. That's it. Boring boring boring. His voice is lame. He has one monotone note. Every song blends into the next with him. I can't remember any one song against another with this guy because he just deosn't try. Don't say he does, he doesn't. He never tries to sing or perfrom something that is difficult. He takes any song and makes it monotone and dull.

He is boring.

CRINGE

CRINGE

Can you imagine Lee trying

Can you imagine Lee trying to sing a 'when angles brought me here' type song in the final?

Cya Dan... I reckon Lee will

Cya Dan...


I reckon Lee will go to the final now - his fans will vote him through after the close call this week. I think Kate will go next week unless she does something amazing.

Lee will struggle in the final though because when it comes down to the final two people have a way to vote against him and I suspect he's got more of a love/hate thing going on with people.

Dan was by far the best last

Dan was by far the best last night, just goes to show what a pack of kiddies vote for, and we must have so many NZ in this country to keep the wailing screaming Emily still in, what a disgrace Australia, the best muscian and singer getting voted out, for a half baked performance from Kate, and a manic moron like Lee, to that Emily no body, who by the way is not an Australian, shame Australia shame, just discusting.

What is it with you . you

What is it with you . you are so hung up on kiwis . the more you shitcan them the more i will vote for Emily . I am an aussie and proud of it and thats more than I can say about you. You should be ashamed of yourself . Get off THE GIRLS BACK . i HOPE EVERYONE THAT READS YOUR BLOGS TAKES OFFENCE AND VOTES FOR EMILY .You want to read your history books and see what NZ and AUST. did together in the war . grow up and get a life.

it'll be interesting to see

it'll be interesting to see how far kate can get now. we are shown through the show she has a lot of support, but im not feeling it on the STREET, know what i'm sayin,,,,,,,,

her dads a pretty large business owner in bendigo, and i know for a fact hes spending a massive amount of money and time voting for her. for an example is, employees have full paid days sitting texting, voting for her.

I really liked Kate, but I

I really liked Kate, but I get your drift, her family are keeping her in, she was not that good the past few weeks, and Emily is just horrid, cant stand her. Dan will hopefully have a career, and the others can fade out into non existance as far as I care. Just shows that a pack of idiots and half of NZ are voting, let's face it their nearly all living here, hope Emily gets voted of next and goes back to her native country. Good riddin's

there is a lot of racism

there is a lot of racism creeping in there. its a bit scary.

emily if you're reading this you're beautiful and you and anne were the funniest of the final 13 so thats all that matters. woooooooooooooo

You lot always use the word

You lot always use the word rascism, it has nothing to do with that, I dont care where she comes from or what colour she is , she is an over rated nothing, and I hope she does not win this. Her performance was terrible last night, and to see a vocalist like Dan go down that had a much better night is ludicrous. Who is voting for her may I ask, I followed Anne at first, and then Daniel then Dan, but no way would I vote for Emily, she is just another diva singing the same way as a million on the market. I hope she goes next.

your comments reek of it i'm

your comments reek of it i'm sorry. racism racism racism. 'she should go back to her native country', ???? 'they're (NZders) are all living here anyway' ???? what trip are you on. if someone is commited enough to apply for citizenship and go thru all that, i say good on them and live where you've chosen.

Your a dill, the women is

Your a dill, the women is over rated and cant understand why she was not in the bottom two tonight, my point is who is voting for her, she is not that good for goodness sake, rascism rascism rascism you say, go away and I dont believe that a person is better because of colour or where they come from, that is rascism, and my Aboriginal mother agrees. So bag your head, the people that are voting for her are rascists then that is the only reason I can see that she is there over Dan.

You're wrong here crimson.

You're wrong here crimson. Emily has a fantastic voice, she is a little raw still in that she hasn't learn't how to arrange songs for her voice yet - that was the problem with her 2nd song. She sung it will, just didn't arrange it well.
But that's something any professional producer would sort through with her very quickly.
Dan sing just ok at best. He is monotoned, and he pushes notes out from his throat. Each song blends into the next because he has no range in his notes. You might like him, fair enough, but Emily is so far and away the best singer on this series. This point "can not" be argued. It can't. You can argue that you like Dan's stylen of singing better than Emily's, but you can never argue that Emily isn't the superior singer to anyone this year. Only Anthony would rivel here for singing talent so far on the idol shows.

And as for racism, no-one is being racist, so just stop it.

Yes your right i love to

Yes your right i love to hate Lee

One word todescribe

One word todescribe him-poodle, poodle poodle poodle poodle, sorry that's 5 and he don't deserve that many!

What a joke.

Idol forget it-turn over and watch Mythbusters on SBS-its more true to life!

Perhaps they could shoot Lee out of a cannon?

Perhaps they could put Kate in a crate to NZ?

Emily, could she breathe underwater?

Let's hope not.

AUSTRALIAN IDOL 2006 IS A JOKE AND FIT ONLY FOR 10-13 YO

guess wat?! good news James

guess wat?! good news :D

James is recordin his 1st album now xP

oh dear.  another

oh dear.  another forgettable year of Australian Idol.  The first year, there were four decent singers in the final 4.  All had the ability to give goosebumps at times (hey would even conceed one to Cosima).  What happened last year and this year?  I have no idea.  Think the judges are too soft personally.  Emily can't string two words together after singing, and didn't Casey get slammed for that last year?  Kate, well the tuck shop lady arms, is all that I really see when I watch her.  I really am suprised that she is still there.  Actually totally astounded she is still in the competition, just quietly.  Lee, I have to hand it to him. I think hes funny.  I mean, ok, he doesn't have an amazing voice or anything, but hey, cover it with alot of noise and jump about, and its entertaining, and keeps you awake, through many pathetic song choices.  By the way what on earth is up with that?  Why do they choose such dead end songs?

This being said, I couldn't believe Emily stuffed up whatever song she sang second on the show, it was a "giveme touchdown" song.  I really suppose that sums up idol this year for me.  I don't remember any of the songs that they sing, because its all forgettable.  I did like Dan, but even I could barely list any of the songs he sang on idol, unlike my ability to list some of the songs that Guy Sebastian and Shannon sang, and even some that Casey sang last year.  Only really stand out song that I remember for the whole season of Idol 2005 was Lee's Eye of the Tiger Performance.  Totally manic frantic and insane.  Didn't mind it :)

Roll on next year. Get judges that don't gloss over if people don't sing well.  Actually don't let the judges anywhere near the contestants, don't let them get up close and personal with them, let them just be judges assessing performances, without allowances for sickness, or personalities.

who was lauren again?

who was lauren again?

IF THERE IS ACUALLY ANYONE

IF THERE IS ACUALLY ANYONE OUT THERE WHO VOTED FOR KATE BECAUSE THEY THINK SHE'S GOOD YOU ARE A DELUDED RETARD WHATEVER IT IS YOUR SMOKING MUST BE SOME TOP KNOTCH GEAR.

If you were a fan of Dan,

If you were a fan of Dan, Vote for Kate or Emily, not Lee.
Dan said himself 'oh its like im going to be losing a room-mate' just before he was off-ed.
Why?
Because it was clear to everyone except teen losers everywhere that Lee should have left last night!
That bogan di(khead has NOTHING to offer from his chunky untalented excuse for a voice-box.

James??!?!?! Who's he??

James??!?!?! Who's he??

Emily is a dead ringer for Gretel Killeen, except a black version. She sings well but she is so irritating and self-effacing with the crying and the sobbing and the giggling and all the politically correct crap answers and never saying anything REAL or INTERESTING, just getting teary and waving at her jailbait man with IQ of minus 75.

I originally thought she'd win...but UNFORTUNATELY due to 90% of the voters being braindead, it looks like Lee or Kate might scrape through. Remember when Mark was saying weeks ago that this was the best bunch ever?!?!?

What a crock.

  

Yeah Kyle has been a real

Yeah Kyle has been a real let down for me after a promising start of bagging people this year.

And Mark Holden once again is totally inconsistent and dribbling. His stupid touchdown rubbish is the rubbish of all rubbish. Why he shoots down Laura but never rags on Lee for example is disgraceful. Laura messed up one song very badly but at least was starting to move in the right direction - but Holden kept on ragging on her badly. But Lee does the same rubbish noise with no indication of getting any better and he pumps him up. How is that consistent?

The worst of all is still Marcia with her stupid congratulating of any performance no matter how shocking re: Lee with "Ben". Marcia stays because of her singing reputation from 30 years ago, but frankly as a judge she is poo.
