Idol ruminations – fifth final ousting

Bye Jacob.


Apparently next week is contestants singing songs from the year they’re born.

This is also known as the “My GOD I’m so old and my life has amounted to NOTHING” as we here a lot of music from the 90s. The NINETIES!

    To think I was out drinking and partying to that music in the early nineties.

    I am off to buy cream for my neck.

    btw – will be relying on your reports heavily whilst I am away since we seem to have been largely in sync with our opinions

  • Cathy

    hee hee love your Idol night summaries – I continue to tune in for your well placed opinions.

  • Fairlie

    Yes, Blue Mountains Mary…still mildly regretting Jacob’s exit! (as much as I care at this point in the competition, my interest may increase again as we get closer to the final four).

    Oh my goodness, all those songs of the 90s…plenty of potential for cringe-factor.
