Idol ratings bring summer shock
The Age – Dec 30, 2003
Then came World Idol on Boxing Day in which Australian winner Guy Sebastian competed against the winners of the equivalent Idol shows from 10 other countries. Viewers around the world had 24 hours to phone in their votes with the proviso that no nation could vote for its own candidate. Last Friday’s two-hour program which closely resembled the Eurovision Song Contest averaged 2. 4 million viewers in the mainland capitals. This would have put it among the 10 most watched shows of the year if it wasn’t outside the official ratings period. Ten will show the results of the voting live at 6. 30am this Friday and again at 7.

French rocker Johnny Hallyday gave four sold-out shows at a Paris stadium to mark his 60th birthday in June. His golden mane is thinner and his cigarette-tinged voice is deeper – but he’s still one of France’s biggest stars. Combining belly dancing with Turkish rhythm and Western pop Turkish competitor Sertab Erener won the Eurovision song contest singing “Every Way That I Can. ” She beat out a Celtic-flavoured tune from Belgium’s Urban Trad as well as the favorites saucy Russian pop duo Tatu. On the British music scene manufactured pop bands and big US stars dominated the charts while retro-styled American guitar bands like The Strokes and The White Stripes and homegrown glam pranksters The Darkness got the critics’ approval. Amid continued fretting about the inability of British bands – Radiohead and Coldplay excepted – to crack the US charts record labels set their hopes on off-kilter young stars including tousle-haired jazz pianist Jamie Cullum and teen soul diva Joss Stone.

Something Jewish – Dec 31, 2003
While undoubtedly we must control the media we seem to be doing a pretty bad job when it comes to transmission times. Most patient Israeli: Singer David D’Or has been chosen to represent Israel at the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest. Part of the job involves choosing four songs in the Israeli final one of which will go forward to the contest. But before he gets that far he’s got to narrow it down from 250. Looks like he’ll be busy for the next few weeks then.
