Australian Idol

Yup. She only had to sing in front of Meghan. And then she was put through…

She’s lovely by the way haha. Nothing personal. Just telling you how it happened.

It’s not the whole show. And one off visits to remote areas have been done before.

As far as I know they only did the remote thing to two contestants. They still auditioned via zoom and that the other judges watched them. It wasn’t just the one judge that got them through.

Looks awesome. Promo says starts January, so presumably will begin before official ratings commence.

The promos are great. I’m really looking forward too it.

This comment hasn’t aged well. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: Meghan’s song ‘Made You Look’ is currently #7 on the ARIA charts.

The comment was correct in its entirety. The new single is quite a shit song that sounds exactly like her others. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Interesting. Any thoughts as to what date they might be aiming for? Poses some serious risks too. Potential to spoil 10? Get the jump on Nine?

I doubt they would go against the Aus Open final which is 29th Jan. so if they air it on Monday’s then I can see the 1st episode being 23rd Jan.

So maybe it airs Monday (23 & 30) & Tuesday (24 & 31) before switching to Sunday from the 5th of Feb?

Seven has BBL matches on both January 23 (Hurricanes v Sixers) and 24 (Renegades v Strikers). If it is to start Idol on that week it will have to move the BBL broadcast to 7mate.

Apart from those days, I just don’t see when they will air it if the advertising is saying January 2023

Monday 30th? Also after the AO. Still technically “Jan”. Seven often cheeky with teasers and non-committing. And agree they’d be stupid, more because it’d give the show the hardest chance to succeed, going up against the tennis, let alone 10’s revamped Bachelor and pissing Cricket Australia off further.

As much as I’m looking forward to this coming back, just makes me sad that it took Ch7 killing off BB for good to admit that live TV still has a time and a place.
