AUSTRALIAN Idol fans might be feeling deja vu, with speculation finalist Joseph Gatehau could be forced to pull out of the competition due to throat problems.

The shy 18-year-old Ashcroft High School student yesterday said he had almost lost his voice while practising on Wednesday.

In 2003, West Australian Cosima De Vito was a hot favourite to win before she withdrew from Idol after developing throat nodules.

Channel 10 paraded its final 12 Idol contestants yesterday at a press conference. Chris Murphy, 30, brother of 2004 finalist Courtney, emerged as the loudest of the group, at one point controlling proceedings.

Betting agency Centrebet has Lisa Mitchell as favourite to win this year, followed by Dean Geyer.
