“Australian Idol will not return in 2010. Network 10 has decided to “rest” the tired talent quest after years of falling ratings.”
No huge surprise. Been saying for years they would be better running Idol every second year. Gives them a better pool of talent to choose from, plus lessens the burnout from viewers.
2009’s format was a dud. Should have had the elimination at the end of the show. Too often we just tuned in for the first 15 mins to see who was booted and then watched something else.
Judges need to have a say too. IMO the best format is Rock Star. Judges picked the 3 worse performances on the night and then the viewers voted on that.
Bring back Kyle. And Big Brother!
Main problem I see is what will Undercover.com.au do now for Australian Content now that Paul can’t bitch about Idol? ;)
