Weak...that's the best way (worst way?) to describe Australian Idol's first group who performed last night. I have no idea what's going on, Australia. These boys were the favorites in the audition and I actually thought they bunched up the best ones in the first group. I'm totally wrong about that now.
The performances went from "meh" to "ho-hum".... so mediocre. And that's not the way Australian Idol is. It left me with very little good impressions.
But I give all of them plus points for image and presentation. The boys each had a specific look and style that sets them apart from each other. But they aren't judge for that, are they?
Give me something to clap about, a performance that will knock me off my feet!

Accessory of Choice: the scarf (understandably since it's winter in Aus. It's that or their grannies are in the audience...)
