NZ Idol 1: NZIDOL OR NZJOKE?? NO SERIOUSLY!!!

Submitted by nga_maunga_tapu on 19 March, 2004 - 10:00am

Do you really think any of these hopefulls even have the talent?? Ok yup a bit of talent here and there - but no way would I want any of these people to represent NZ if they had to in WORLDIDOL - how embarassing to think that this is what NZ talent is! The judges are always pointing out that this is not a singing competition - well HELLO?? They seem to be concentrating more on personality - as for looks: Ben looks like he's gonna go cross - eyed any day and Camellia looks like a monkey, straight hair or not! Paulini would kick ass in all departments!!!!

Comment

nga_maunga_tapu just look at the transformation they did on Clay Aiken. You should be cheering your NZ contestants not dissing them.

to me its in search of some new talent in any different form...END of STORY..

Comment

Leave them alone... they made it through some of the hardest auditions theyll probably ever do..... I know i was there and they are all beautiful people and all excited and hopefull about thier futures!!!!

Most people have a wee memory lapse when it comes to the overseas Idol shows. At this stage of the competition most of the american and oz contestants were still developing as much as our guys are. People tend to only want to remember the last few shows when they had all had weeks of getting better. Loosen up guys

Comment

hey EKIN! would love to know your stories of how it was for you. you dn't have to tell anything your not alloed to but would love to know how everyone treated you like are the producers more interested in making good telly than how it goes for yous? Di they treat you right? I voted for you, i thought you were very braqve to talk about your face like you did. I think you afre beautiful

Hey guys,

I reckon as the competition moves on, and the idols get more and more isolated, then they will start to raise the standard a bit. (hopefully a lot)

I've noticed they are all like, 'family, family' and noone really seems like they want to compete against each other. As the numbers dwindle, I reckon they will get the enlightenment 'click' and think, 'is it time?? it is!!' and then the standard will have to rise.

Any further thoughts?

GO NZ IDOL 2004!!!

Comment

No I totally disagree with you person whatever your name is. Ok yeah sure so some peoples voices are a bit stuffed but i mean nz people have special voices i reckon. I realise the nzidol stage has a higher percentage of beautiful maori voices than pakehas. And I always thought their voices were beautiful and they are!! And so are white peoples voices !! gosh dnt get angry aite?

They just need to sing better SONGS!!! OH GOD THEY SUCK AT CHOOSING THE RIGHT SONGS!!!!ALL OF THEM!!!! and yeah they should compete with each other more.. id b more interesting lol:P

NZ JOKE.....end of story

Its all too easy to be a couch potato critic. Wish I had a fraction of the talent and guts these finalists have.

Comment

^^^Are you making fun of me????????

There has only been one contestant that I was unhappy with, for reasons already discussed, but 'boy o boy' did he sing his heart out when he left and gave the best performance ever!

After watching overseas idols, I have so been looking forward to having our own NZ Idol program and have grown very fond of all of them. Let's appreciate our homegrown talent and the opporutnity to see them succeed. As we watch each week, it is going to be very hard to see any of them go home.

GO NZ IDOLS!!!! YOU MAKE US KIWIS PROUD!

Comment

hey um yeh... dont diss Camillia or Ben.

GOOO CAMILLIA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Comment

Thinking about World Idol, I'd most like to have someone like Camillia representing us. Shes got an air of maturity and class about her, qualities some of those other idols might not ever know anything about.....

Comment

Qualities like what?? She's a fake and that's that...did you know Camellia and Ben have been famous since birth - they were the first chimpanzees to be adopted into a human society..well that's only what I heard - their mother's were sisters...cool huh...

Comment

whats your problem, (calling Camillia and Ben chimps, and their mothers) attack the voice or the performance, but why go their for, but hey, you heard it from somewhere or someone right? so now you need to do yourself a favour and take your head out-of-your ** so you can identify which person it is spreading these hated rumours, or you could look in the mirror (what a crack-up)

eastiman: nga_maunga_tapu just look at the transformation they did on Clay Aiken. You should be cheering your NZ contestants not dissing them.

Note to eastiman - Clay aiken was a bloody good singer BEFORE entering AI2, they just made him LOOK better, you dont win a competition like this from LOOKS you win it mainly on your singing ability

Comment

OH get over it you NERDS..everyone's entitled to their own opinion..and actually, from last night I hope Camellia WINS...but as Fiona mentioned, I too expected Camellia to ROCK THE HOUSE with that song, but she didn't get up as far as I expected..yeah I Hope she WINZ..Ben err well yeah he didn't do much for me either - he'd make a better singer than a performer coz he just blinks too much..Robin did better than I thought he would the little dork..and Jessie?? HAHAHAAHAHA now she was a Joke..the attire and all..When I saw her audition I really thought she could SING...well err I was wrong..as for LUKE = blah blah blah..I really hope that LUKE does not win - I'd rather have Robin win before Luke..anyway BYE for now...

Comment

I used to be of the NZ JOKE opinion, but slowly I think each performer is getting better (well most of them bar a couple), and the standards are getting higher.

This is probably all still very new to many of these people and I think if you really think about it you will also notice vast improvements by most!

I wont bother to go there and say who hasn't improved, it goes with out saying . . .

Comment

I thought that show was the worst show ever screened in the history of Television.

NZ idol is a joke, god it was a bad show.
