Now first, this is no disrespect to michelle because she is quite a good singer.
But it is a wonder with all the controversy concerning her weight and whether she will be able to PERFORM LIVE as well as sing that she could win such a contest. Everyone know's it was a sympathy vote. Everyone also knows that image is everything in music, I mean how many record companies would be desperate to sign her up before the whole pop idol thing.

:confused: So how is it that someone with the right image and a good voice can not win.......and yeah I'm talking about Javine. Could it be because she's got an ounce of black in her

All the judges loved Javine and they were saying "Oh she's definetely gonna win she's brilliant" a bit too much, so every individual thought they'd be wasting their money by voting for her bcuz shes so good shes probably going to get lots of other votes- so she ended up losing.
As for Michelle, there's only so much you can do with sympathy, I wonder if we'll still remember her in a couple years.

Michelle and Mark were not even that great at singing, there was so many better people. Also, the name of the programme is pop IDOL, who would want to idolise someone who is obese..

superb quote.

ROXANNE AND SAM WERE THE BEST 2 "POP IDOLS" - VERY GOOD SINGERS AND THEY WERE NICE PEOPLE WHO LOOKED THE PART ASWELL.

SIMON SAID "I THOUGHT ROXANNE OR SAM...."
NICKI SAID "ROXANNE OR SAM"
FOXY SAID "ROXANNE OR SAM"
PETE SAID "ROXANNE OR SAM"

CLEARLY, THESE 2 WERE THE BEST POP IDOL'S, POSSIBLY ALONG WITH ANDY SCOTT LEE AS THE DARK HORSE.

MARK R IS A CRAP SINGER, HAS ANY1 ACTUALLY WATCHED HIM? HE SOUNDS TERRIBLE, LIKE A "DECENT KARAOKE SINGER" - FOXY SAID THE SAME THING 3 WEEKS IN A ROW "CABARET" IS THE TERM HE USED.

AS FOR MICHELLE, OK, GOOD VOICE, BUT COME ON, AN OBESE PERSON BEING A POP IDOL? WORLDS GOING INSANE.

Correct me if I am wrong but when it comes to weight, the "sympathy vote" didn't win it for Rick Waller, did it?

I have to say I don't even rate Michelle's voice - it's very nasal and the single's crap.

Pop Idol should be run over the radio - the best singer would then win with no prejudice and it would be really funny when we finally get to see them!

No it didn't.

And Rik Waller still got signed up hoping there would be "sympathy buyers" but there weren't.

That's a good idea actually because people just want the best looking or person they have sympathy for to win.

I mean, who cares if they're fat, if they sound good when we switch the radio on then what's wrong?

There's plenty of her to remember!! She isnt that good either.

Javine was quality but doesn't she have a single out now anyway?
