General: NZ Idol 3 Announced

Submitted by The Critic on 2 February, 2006 - 4:52pm

TVNZ have confirmed that there will be an NZ Idol 3 and will air in the second half of 2006.

Two things of note from the press release though:

  • Got to love the spin on Rosita hitting number one in the charts
  • 10 seconds on Google would have shown that American Idol is actually in Season Five

New Zealand’s favourite local TV show is back. NZ Idol 3 will launch on TV2 in the second half of 2006, confirming its place at the heart of Kiwi popular culture.

“NZ Idol was a huge hit again last year, and we’re looking forward to an even more exciting season in 2006,

Wow!  I didnt think that

Wow!  I didnt think that there was going to be a third season!!! i went last year for some unknown reason!!! i will probably go this year to!!! i was so nervous last year that paul just ripped me to shreds... good thing he wont be there this time huh! I will bring more support with me this year though!

Have a great time everyone... shud be entertaining!

P.S. Anyone know when the forms go up for registration???

I'm not sure how excited I

I'm not sure how excited I am... kind of wondering who would enter when there seems to be no effort put in by the record company to actually make them successful. It seems wrong to exploit someone, put their life on national television and make them give up their whole lives for someone else to make money.

I am but i am afraid about

I am but i am afraid about what kind of contestants will be in it. Season 2 contestents were sent from heaven i love *most* of them so. Season 3 has extremely high expectations for me, so good luck to it with that.

It will be interesting to

It will be interesting to see how "So you think you can dance" compares to NZ Idol since TV3 are promoting it as "from the makers of American Idol".
