A place to post about NZ Idol 2006, for those things not worth making a thread about :p

Does anyone know why the NZ

Does anyone know why the NZ Idol logo wasn't 'attached' to the glass? 

The NZ Idol animation was

The NZ Idol animation was supplied to SPP by Fremantle, (not made here).

Yup yup. But I don't see why

Yup yup. But I don't see why the logo wasn't 'attached' the the spinning glass sign. In America the logo is attached, but in NZ it just 'floats' there. Kinda cheap :p

Fremantle get a percentage

Fremantle get a percentage of the total budget.  New Zealand's is obviously a LOT less than America's, therefore determines how much they spend on re-doing the animation.

Ahh okay. Makes sense. But I

Ahh okay. Makes sense. But I still think it should be the same for every country, or theres no point in doing it at all :)

  

  

There was this chick on

There was this chick on Playhouse Disney (shut up, I have a little sister) before the Wiggles who looked just like Kali.

I miss Becks and Aroha! I

I miss Becks and Aroha!

I downloaded the Top 10 Medley preformed on the final, and Becks is amazing! And so is Aroha!

Random: I just saw the

Random: I just saw the Philippine idol animation, aka the idol spinning in front of the glass on the screen on the stage, and we should be thankfull. Because over there, the logo stays slap bang on the middle of the screen as the glass, etc spins around behind it. Lame.

Isnt that what we had on NZ

Isnt that what we had on NZ Idol - because im sure we had the same animations! - I thought America would had been one of a few countries that managed to "pull a few dollars" to get a proper animation.

Our one had the NZ Idol logo

Our one had the NZ Idol logo hovering in front of the 'bare' glass panel, and when the panel-thing spun around, the logo would sorta 'swish' around as well and hover.

Their one: The logo stayed in the center and doesn't move. Even wehn the sign spins around, it stays bang in the centre. It does not move at all, and it looks silly :p

I need second opinion thats

For the past two nights (and

For the past two nights (and mornings) I've had the pleasure of serving five of the top 10 contestants at work this week. On sunday night/monday morning, Aroha and Indira came through drive-thru wasted (though, I don't blame Indira ;) ), and Aroha seemed a little lost when I explained to her which drink was which.

Monday night/tuesday morning we had Victor, Toni and Ben come through and they seemed quite friendly :)

I guess that just goes to

I guess that just goes to show that the rest of the country is as bored of Idol as we are! ;)

Mm, I'm not sure if it's

Mm, I'm not sure if it's that, or:
The Dom Post is a Wellington-based/run newspaper. Ben was from Wellington originally. Rosita was...an Aucklander? Matt is from Levin which tries to be part of Wellington.

 Hehe  DomPost trying to

 Hehe  DomPost trying to cash in on Levin man's story......gee i dont know :P 

they shouldve just stuck to 3rd place getter Ben seeing he's local

So there IS a record

So there IS a record contract with the $50,000 and the Daihatsu car. Anyone knows the record label?
I'm predicting that the winner will go to nowhere (mo-fo) island after this TV show. :P

The single was put out by

The single was put out by Shock Records NZ Ltd (anyone heard of them?), so I guess any album would be the same.  Though recording contract may mean the contract for the single...

I have managed to get to 2

I have managed to get to 2 idol shows this season and was really annoyed at Indiras friends.  I think she has heaps of talent, but both shows she has had friends in the audience that have been really rude and nasty to other people, and at the second show they were threatening to take someone outside and "smash their f***in face in".  So talent or not I had younger family with me and they didn't find it funny either and they have changed their votes to Aroha.  Bring back Clinton and Kali!

I totally agree. I had one

I totally agree. I had one of Indira's friends standing next to me at the final and he wouldn't move a bit to the side so my sister could stand by me. He was a real d!ck.

lmao! i so wish i was there

lmao! i so wish i was there i wouldve been in my prime ;)

Yeah those bloody islanders

Yeah those bloody islanders can get like that - you should see those coconuts at work.......

Got nothing to do with where

Got nothing to do with where they were or weren't from, horrible is horrible whatever your race.

dont be a silly billy.

:puzzled: dont be a silly billy. theres only a small minority bad but a great good majority in any race black, white, brown, yellow...

especially if you're a

especially if you're a coconut.

Countdown?

Countdown?

The current Idol studio

The current Idol studio suits the old indent: ya know, the video of the Idol logo out in space with stars passing it?

But having the old studio with the new spinny-logo one, it just doesnt fit. New studio!

I think this season's voting

I think this season's voting has proved to be really bad. I've found myself on Monday nights gutted about whoever left yet laughing at the joke that has proved to be this season's Idol. I just dont take it seriously now, and you could tell the judges were getting annoyed at the public's voting. My favourites, and in my opinion some of the best people like Clinton, Bex and Toni (the last two especially) have been voted out way too early, leaving the wrong people in to continue in the competition (Aroha to name one). I just think it was a real shame for the best talent to be voted out so quickly :(

And yet at the Grand Finale

And yet at the Grand Finale last night, when they crossed to the Judges, Frankie said that, 'This time the NZ Public has voted correctly and we have two fine, talented young people out there'.  I don't get that. :?

Those were my faves too!
