Post World Idol

I've never really cared about these contests, but i just want to announce that the norwegian competant(sp?) Kurt Nilsen just won!
Pretty big for a small country as Norway

I'm happy

ehm, sorry to say it, but even though he looks like an average/non-famous guy, he does NOT mime
we have had proof of that.
He actually sounds kinda like Bono.

I'm glad he won, I wanted him to win. I don't care wtf he looks like, his voice is awesome and he deserves it.

What's going on Pie? I thought us HUGE METALLICA FANS wouldn't give a stuff about World Idol . I never bothered watching it. Not interested, hate Pop music.

As i said i don't care much about these contests, and thats mainly because none of the contestants have a decent taste of music (IMO)...
Just thought i'd mention it because Norway is such a small, unrecognised(sp?) country, that this is really big.
I didn't even watch the program, just heard it from a friend
Metallica still roxx you all

He mimed after he won World Idol, I watched his lips. Why else did you think they had the chunky microphone? To hide his mouth.

I absolutely agree. I'm just so glad Kelly Clarkson didn't win it. Did you see her face when Kurt was getting maximum points towards the end? That was priceless XD

Yeah, it was great. She was trying so hard not to cry bless her. I think she has a good voice, but she overdoes it. Kurt's voice is just awesome. If you heard him sing on the radio, you'd think he'd been doing it for years and sold millions of records. Good on him.

Just some random facts;
He is a plumber from a small village in Norway...
He won the norwegian competiton because he was so natural, and people could identify with him. And he had a great voice of course.

Kelly sucks, I live in Crowley which is right next to Burleson. During the region choir comps she always came in last. Just so you all know, on the show her voice was edited. She won because of her good looks, which I have to say aren't so good. (I went to the choir comps because my sister entered and was always 12 chairs ahead of Kelly, chair 3 to be exact.)

I never saw world Idol but out of the ones I heard (including the norwegian, I think it's a fitting decision.

Dude, no they dont

AC/DC now thats a band, they blow Metallica out of the water man. Like the bombers of ww2, that sunk da battleships.

AC/DC never changed their style, even after their first lead singer. (Not the famous voice of Brian Johnson), died. Plus, they have a cooler name, and get song and album names from relatives who read labels the labels off of home accesories. (ex. Back in Black, the motto for a new brand of Hoover. Also Angus Young kicks so much more *insert bad word here* than Metallicas lead guitarist. How do ya like those apples.

Now, onto World Idol.

I truly didnt want to watch it, because being a AC/DC man, i dont enjoy, "popular" music. Too um..."popular". The only reason i watched the first two american idols are because i wanted to see all the people screw up in the beggining.

Also, Kelly Clarkson doesnt deserve to win anything, even record labels. 6 months before the first american idol, she was involved in a porn flick. And sold the videos to minors. Now, is she really, a "sweatheart". She not even good looking. Her voice is ok, but deffinently not better than mine. *no joke intended*

Wow, every day im becoming more of a critic

How was the Canadian guy? I never watch the series of Idol shows but I'm curious about him.

All i know is that people keep saying i somewhat look a bit like him.

true indeed, in the one here in Belgium which certainly was fixed i only watched the finals but after watxhing some first rounds from your country and the USA it's hilarious television

I deliberately refused to watch the world crap idols, but why the hell was Belgium 3rd, you should put that piece of turd (i like to rhyme) on the bottom after the netherlands. Peter Evrard sucks, it's not because he sings *shivers* nirvana he's a friggin pop star
