Annoying
29 December 2003 | by Media_guruSee all my reviews

That's how I can sum it all up. Now I am a huge fan of the American and Canadian Idol shows, you could even say I'm obsessed. (I have never missed an American episode and am even listening to Kelly Clarkson as we speak) but the internatinal version, World Idol was strangly more pathetic. Anyone can tell you that a person will root for a person from their state/provice but their own country? Bias-City! (Despite this fact, you cannot vote for your own idol) It's almost like moving backwards in a dememted sort of way (11 countries battling each other?) With a Judge for each contestant who unsurprisingly favors there own contedor and annoying bad cutting in the Canadian version, World idol was just mean and well, annoying!

(sorry for spelling/grammer mistakes)
