    Is it just me or are the contestants in Pop Idol not that good? I mean, let's face it, Will Young isn't THAT brilliant, neither is Gareth Gates. If you watched American Idol (I and II) you can be sure that both Will and Gareth would never have made it to the finals with the competition there: Kelly Clarkson, Clay Aiken, Tamyra Gray are superb. Why is the level in England so low?!

    Haha...but i'm still surprised at the gap between American Idol and Pop Idol. Australian Idol is better than Pop Idol too.

    Yea... I hope Kelly wins she'll brill. I listened to clips of the other winners and their not as good as her. Guy Sebastien from Australia is pretty good though.

    I don't really like Japanese singers in general, lol. I like Misia and Hirai Ken though. I met Hirai Ken once, and he was a great person as well. Ironically, I didn't know who he was!! We had a chat and the following week I see him on tv and they're talking about his new single...and it was that single that made him famous! Grrr I should have asked for his signature.

    I personally think the best singer in the world ever has to be Clay Aiken! He came second and so should have won American Idol. I could listen to his voice EVERY day. It is so amazing.

    Clay, you rock my world!

    How does the voting work on World Idol? Presumeably the country with the biggest population will win as they voted their representative to 'pop idol' status and would vote for them again. We also know how each country has it's own style and perhaps would not like anothers offering because of their type of music they choose. I could see it turning into a huge popularity contest.

    I guess it will be like the Eurovision song contest. We can't vote for our own country, and the other countries won't be able to vote for their own countries either.

    May the best man/woman win!
