So You Think You Can Dance - Cirque to Soleil To Be Guest Performers on Tonight's Show.

The Daily Telegraph says the guests for tonight's final six elimination show will be performers from Cirque du Soleil. The US winner Sabra Johnson, and Kameron Binks will be in the audience - but will have no part on the show. Which I consider this a ridiculous decision considering Sabra's popularity.

American Idol performers that have appeared on the show ie. Kelly Clarkson have not overshadowed the local contestants.

Erika Heynatz to plug her Single on It Takes Two Tomorrow Night.

Erika Heynatz will sing her new sing Slide on It Takes Two tomorrow night. Her rationale is that the other singers on the show have been plugging their new material so why shouldn't she? Fair enough.

Australia's Next Top Model - Jodhi Meares admits how bad she was on last years live finale.
Jodhi Meares admits in an article that her startled live performance in last years ANTM finale "was done under duress". She does not say whether the finale will be live this year.

She has been in New York last week with the final three contestants. The very popular show will commence on 22 April at 7.30pm on Fox 8.

Dicko said Mark Holden Made My Life a Misery
This story is such bollocks. This is the biggest beat up of a yarn in a long time. Shame on you Dicko. Is to get publicity for Australian Idol this year?

"Mark always tried to turn it into pantomime," said Dicko, pictured, who also admitted he'll be happy to steal his culled comrade's trademark "touchdown!" catch cry.

"I was really, really thrilled to come back last year. And this year, now that Holden's gone, it's even more exciting," Dicko said.

"Mark always kept me at arm's length. I like him. I think he's an interesting character but he would do whatever he could just to make my life a misery."

Yawn, yawn, yawn.

Are you kidding? Cirque Du Soleil are AMAZING and far out-trump mediocre and bland Kameron and Sabra. You would have to be CRAZY to cancel a booked appearance for Cirque Du Soleil just because a couple of contestants from the US version happen to be in town.

Yes Cirque De Soleil is amazing, however why not do both.

A 1 min 30 sec routine by Sabra and Kameron would mean there could be less filler tonight.

PS: I am pretty certain that I read somewhere that AusNTM are going ahead with a live finale this year. That last one was a trainwreck. I think they're batshit insane for attempting it again!

I suppose you're right, they could do both, but is there really enough time? I don't think there's that much filler in the results shows. Although I do believe they should really cut out Natalie recapping the judges thoughts when we just heard them in the video recap, though.

The Australian Idol results shows are terrible with filler! God, they're tedious.

Last Nat means more time for everyone else. I don't think Cat every took away from the show (did she? I'll have to rewatch S3 to see).

It would have been cool to see Cirque du Soleil and Sabra/Kam (Sabra and Danny would have been better, but...well, one can dream).
