The Australian Idol circus rides into town again

The laughter, the tears the humiliation, the big final and the inevitable one hit wonder, has rolled into town. You got it, Australian Idol is back on the telly and with Channel 10 having already pulled the plug on Big Brother, it is only a matter of time that Idol will follow suit.

So far the auditions I have seen have been extremely tired, formulaic and boring. The loss of the only judge with any ounce of wit, personality and style, Mark Holden, has frankly killed it for me. As for Ricki Lee, well a couple of hit albums do not a presenter make.

Poor, poor, poor.
