I was watching the Durban auditions of Idols last night on channel 198 and the farce seems to be going ahead for this, the fifth (God help us all) season. And whilst you might not remember who won last year’s competition, you needn’t worry as it looks like they’re finally closing up shop.
Dave Thompson suggests
Idols has been given a final chance
In an incredibly amateurish bungling err , Idols judge Dave Thompson let slip that there may well be no more Idols competitions after this one.
Following the audition of a slightly plump Durban girl who didn’t make it through, Thompson commented, “IF this competition continues after this year, please come back and try again.”
With only one out of the four past winners becoming CLOSE to being a household name (Heinz Winckler), it is QUITE evident that MNET bosses have given the team a last chance at making this abortion work; otherwise the series is over. Either that, or it IS over following this season. Why else would Dave Thompson to make the Freudian slip?
Unless his contract hasn’t been renewed and there is some bitterness?
Can you imagine Simon Cowell saying, “IF this competition continues next year…”
Please man, that would NEVER happen, even if it WAS true! That is the difference between professionals and our bunch of neophytes.
Randall Abrahams, for example, tried to have a go at a contestant after finding out that she was a music teacher. So he says to her, “Do you know the saying? Hey? Those who don’t do, teach.“
“Those who don’t do, teach”
No, no, no… You’re wrong Randall, you’re fucking wrong and you’re fucking clueless and an embarrassment to SA broadcasting and the country as a whole. The phrase is Those who can, do; those who can’t, teach. The general day-to-day short form (which it seems you were trying very hard to pretend to understand and use), however, is just the end part : Those who can’t, teach.
I mean how is it possible that the “Simon Cowell” of the group be such an imbecile? Surely that goes against the very fabric of the concept of the character? The thing that makes Simon Cowell good is he is QUITE clearly intelligent. He would NEVER make an error like that.
This show is a satire at best. SA’s IDOLS is basically the Spinal Tap of the world’s Idol competitions.
