Aussie Idol 7 Highlights, Week of 9.21.09

Some highlights from this week's Aussie Idol, Season 7:

If Christopher Cross, singer of songs like "Sailing" and "Arthur's Theme, sang AHA's "Take On Me", this is how I think he would sound like ---

...and someone in the audience has probably fallen asleep! No offense but this guy's voice is for easy Sunday afternoon listening only.

The kids from GLEE were the special guests (wheee!) and the contestants rendered "Don't Stop Believin", a song which was featured in the series' pilot episode. I was not happy with this group performance at all :P but yeah, kudos for the effort ---

This week's theme featured Top 10 Songs, with song choices like "Since You've Been Gone", "Drops of Jupiter" and "Kiss From A Rose". Overall, an okay week. Aussie Idol though is slowly losing its sparkle for me. Guess that happens when it's been around for awhile. To its credit, it does re-invent itself every year with its rule and format changes.
