Idol or INXS?

After watching Rock Star INXS last night, I have decided to do a top ten list of why Rock Star is a much better show than American Idol:

1. Actual Talent - I may be a little biased towards rock-n-roll, but these guys and girls can actually perform.

2. Better House Band - These guys rock!

3. Better Host - This host doesn't pretend that the show is about her.

4. No Obnoxious Judges - It's so nice to hear qualified comments from the band - not cheap shots for ratings.

5. No Cheesy Themes - So far they have picked great songs for them to perform. I can only pray that there will not be a disco night!

6. Better Elimination System - What a concept - let the qualified people make the final call!

7. More Background Info - It's great to see the contestants rehearse and work out the songs. You can see the hard work that goes into the performances.

8. No Paula Abdul - No explanation needed.

9. They Can Play Instruments! - The one thing that I really liked about Nashville Star.

10. No William Hung - They took 15 great performers and put them on the stage. That's all we need.

I'm loving INXS: Rockstar. My money is on JD. The House Band rocks too.

Gary Lamb said...

JD is awesome but he dropped the ball bashing the other guys and girls. I just read the ratings are horrible.

I couldn't believe it when JD blew himself up. Not cool. My money's on Brandon now. He seems to fit the band.

It will be Mig or Marty I truly believe now.

Chris Surratt said...

I think you're right on Marty. This week pushed him ahead. Ty's still in there though.
