Australian Idol

One of our guilty pleasures has been watching Australian Idol -- the down under version of the American show. We never watched it at home, and I wouldn't know Taylor Hicks if he fell off a roof and landed on me. Although I suppose it would hurt.

But we've been hooked. We started watching in Hobart in September, when we were all in one hotel room and had no internet access. It's now down to the final two, and they are really talented. Even I can tell.

The judges are comparable to the American, except the panel is led by Marcia Hines, who's a damn sight smarter than Paula Abdul.

Most prime time TV here consists of American shows, and there are about 300 different versions of CSI (Miami, Las Vegas, Little Rock, the works). There's even a campy version of Family Feud, run by a longtime TV star with what has to be the worst toupee in the Southern Hemisphere.

If you don't know who Taylor is then how do you know his name? I think by next summer everybody on the planet will know who he is, and why he's destined to be a voice matched by no other! Cheers!
