Multiple 2oceansvibe’s sources who attended the event have confirmed that Idols winner, Dave Van Vuuren did a corporate gig not too long ago for Samsung, during which he was expected to perform a few songs. Dave Van Vuuren, who is of the belief that his music will indeed change the world, got on stage and [...]
As if it’s not bad enough suffering a broken ego, several bruises, and a broken cheekbone, M-Net has now also “reprimanded” Idols contestant Freddie Van’Dango. He drank alcohol on Friday night, tuned a DJ and was then apparently assaulted by a cage fighter. He claims he never raised so much as a fist himself, but does concede to having a “quick mouth and a rocker mentality.”
A bout of flu broke out in the Idols house last week. To help “lift their spirits” the contestants were given permission to go out in public on Saturday night – without supervision. Apparently Freddie van’Dango was in such good spirits after a while that he tuned a DJ and got his arse kicked by a “cage fighter” in the process.
Ja, so basically I surprised even the great Silwood Cooking school, with my orgasmic roast summer vegetable dish. But I can’t take all the credit for it – as it was sent through from France, by Mother Dearest. Click link for the video (and recipe), in case you missed it. Fans of Idols’ Adeline will be quite pleased with this too..
The producers of Idols South Africa have let Mara Louw go after three seasons of racist slur, violent outbursts, faux couture and drunken shenanigans. Boy, that was fun. She was the single judge who could always be counted on to do something unscripted and rash at around the 40 minute mark of every episode. What do we do now?
Monday evening’s episode of Idols SA was the standard mix of tepid content, low production values, and a small group of talented vocalists vainly struggling against a tide of disinterested public, average backing tracks, and of course, inebriated judges.
So, some of you may have noticed, some of you not, that the sixth South African season of the least-successfully exported show of all time, Idols, has crawled it’s tawdry way on to our television screens. You have to give it to the Idols producers. They must be rimming someone with a corner office at [...]
MNET and Idols are going for the “World First” vibe, with regards to the incredibly embarrassing situation they are now in, having completely muffed the final vote counting exercise – something they hired the constantly troubled and shrouded in scandal Alexander Forbes company to do for them. “World first” – as in they’ve now got [...]
You have heard the news that they are having an Idols final vote recount, right? No, I’m not kidding. Let’s break it down. This, from News24: Cape Town – M-Net has announced that they have begun to audit votes for Idols because of “system problems“. “The moment we were alerted to possible [...]

I’m pleased to announce that the video from this year’s SA Blog Awards Best blog post has hit 85,000 views. For those of you that didn’t get to the article (here), it was in response to a challenge laid down to me by Idols judge, Randall Abrahams. CLICK HERE to see the original post. Or [...]
I sent out a tweet on Sunday night with the following photo of Mara on Idols, as I waited for Carte Blanche to start. I sent with it the words, “Haaaahahahaha” which was what I was doing at the time – completely hosing myself. Who are you? Aah ja – good old Mara. [...]
I’m assuming Supersport wouldn’t be so foolish as to publish an April Fool’s joke on the 31st of March? Hey? Surely not, guys. You wouldn’t balls it up THAT badly, would you? Supersport reports (including title screenshot with date): The impact of the Indian Premier League has been felt around the cricketing world, and [...]
2oceansvibe’s disgust at the incredibly low levels of professionalism over at IDOLS has been echoed throughout the media world over the past couple of months. The most recent of which was yesterday in IOL’s Tonight Section: Check, check, check it out (source – iol): Idols, hitting the wrong note March 22, 2009 By [...]
I really do hope that Randall Abrahams doesn’t think all the negative press is a compliment to how well he is playing his “nasty” character on SA Idols. I must make it radiantly clear that this is not the case. Unlike in the US, where people “hate” the nasty judge, Simon Cowell (they do actually [...]
In case you missed it, Idols judge Dave Thompson was slated in a recent Mail & Guardian Thoughtleader article. You can catch that article HERE. that was obviously after OUR whole debacle with him and fellow judge, Randall Abrahams.

I spotted this little article on the Mail & Guardian‘s website, regarding an incident at Idols. I forwarded the story to a friend of mine (The Fruit Farmer) and he said he witnessed the same thing, adding that the kid in question was definitely the kind of kid you wouldn’t want to do that to. [...]
Whilst the original nasty judge, Simon Cowell exudes an air of intelligence, the character is once again lost on Randall Abrahams as his increasingly unconvincing facade gains momentum. ..and the hits just keep on comin’ I had another perverted tingle down my back and I turned on the Idols highlights channel for a [...]
Amazing how Idols is doing “so well,” yet they have urgently changed the rules, following disappointing ratings. SUDDENLY the process has changed from entering into the 12 girls / 12 guys vibe, and has gone straight to a final 14. Desperate measures to save the show in this, the Dying Swan scene. From TVSA: [...]
It’s interesting to note that this whole debacle with Idols began when 2oceansvibe suggested that Dave Thompson experienced a Freudian slip when he told a contestant that there might be no a show next year. We even gave reasons for the slip, including the possibility that the show might be going on, but perhaps Dave [...]
I’ll kick off with this picture of one of the American Idols contestants who seem to be heading for glory – Casey Carlson. No, I am not joking. Yes, she is 20. Here is another shot. You can see more pics of Casey Carlson here. Why don’t we get stuff like that? [...]

You should be pretty up to date now on where we are. If you’re not, I would advise following these links as I give them to you. I was flipping through my satellite TV a few days back and caught 5 minutes of the Idols highlights channel, testing to see if such a short spurt [...]
I posted an article a couple days ago about Idols and, in particular, Dave Thompson suggesting the show might not go on. I also expressed dismay at Randall Abrahams playing the nasty character but ballsing up his sayings/phrases when he does so. All of this came after spending 5 minutes on the Idols highlights channel [...]
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 [...]
