tv newsletter News. This was officially announced by the EBU in the website\’s newsletter of the event.

Idol withdrawal
The Age – Nov 27, 2003
Guy Sebastian was a shoo-in to win although his vocal aerobics were not exactly my glass of medicine and he deserves to fare well in the World Idol contest in London over Christmas when he competes against the winners of 10 or so other Idol contests held in places as far-flung as the US and Poland Britain and Lebanon. It will be like a worldwide Eurovision Song Contest. Let’s just hope the global voting system is less tedious than at Eurovision. The word is that after a concert on Christmas Day (probably Boxing Day here on Channel Ten) in which all contestants will perform viewers will have a week to vote for their favourite before the announcement of the winner on New Year’s Day. But they will not be allowed to vote for their own nation’s contestant. If they were American Kelly Clarkson would surely be the winner simply because the US population of 260 million dwarfs that of any other country in the show.

The Eurovision has always been inspirational to him. “The You’re A Star programme helps the ultimate Eurovision contestant to build up a big profile in their country” James said. The Achill Sound singer-songwriter is an experienced performer and knows the value of the exposure he will have just by making it through to the final 40 contestants in this year’s programme.
