Each country gets to vote using their own voting systems. The home contestant from each participating country (e.g. Will Young in the United Kingdom) will automatically start with the highest points (12) awarded from their own country. Viewers from each country will then vote on the remaining ten contestants and once the votes are tallied and the position of each contestant is determined (1st place, 2nd place etc.) points will be awarded in accordance with the Points System below.

Points System:

Home country contestant - 12 points.

1st place - 10 points.

2nd place - 9 points.

3rd place - 8 points.

4th place - 7 points.

5th place - 6 points.

6th place - 5 points.

7th place - 4 points.

8th place - 3 points.

9th place - 2 points.

10th place - 1 point.

The points each Idol gets from all of the countries will be tallied and added together by an independent vote management company to determine their overall position in the contest.

Guy no Idol favourite
December 17, 2003
http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2003/12/16/1071336950451.html

America's Kelly Clarkson has been named favourite to win the World Idol contest in London over Christmas with England's Will Young the most likely runner-up.

Online gambling company Interlop has laid down the odds for all of the international contestants.

"The U.S. and the UK dominate the world's music scene, and here at Intertops.com we feel it will be reflected in the competition" says Intertops Michael Maerz.

"Kelly's the darling of the North American audience. She's come on leaps and bounds since her win last season, and it's a great time for her, though the UK's Will Young is every young girls dream - but as always, it will be up to the viewers on the day."

Australia's Guy Sebastian is rated in fourth place behind Germany's Alexander Klaws and aside from Klaws the surprise bets are the lack of odds for the Europeans.

Dutch Idol Jamai Loman is at 10/1, Belgium's Pete Evrard at 12/1, and the Nordic Idol Kurt Nilsen come sin last with 15/1.

The current odds are:

USA's Kelly Clarkson 7/4
U.K.'s Will Young 2/1
Germany's Alexander Klaws 3/1
Australia's Guy Sebastian 5/1
South Africa's Heinz Winckler 6/1
Canada's Ryan Malcolm 8/1
Holland's Jamai Loman 10/1
Belguim's Peter Evrard 12/1
Poland's Alicia Janosz 15/1
Lebanon's Diana Karazon 15/1
Norway's Kurt Nilsen 15/1

Well as long as Evrard doen't win I'm happy LOL (but I have found an excuse for why Belgium's winner *who BTW was a lot worse than the runner-up :(* isn't that good: Belgium is SO small, so the number of candidates is like 5 or 1 % of the number in the US or something, right? So I feel a LITTLE bit better now hehe It would be more fair if they organized a European Idol first to decide who should compete against countries like the States and Australia, no? *UK probably still would have won it I guess hehe* :dance:

Look I can't stress this enough: when the Belgian guy has to sing, cover your ears or just unplug the TV if you wanna play it safe... He is so.... NOT an idol I'd say... But here in Belgium the series was played on a channel that is in itself kinda.. how to say it... extremely unsophisticated (not that there's anything wrong with unsophisticated but this is yuckkie) and whatnot.... Don't say I didn't warn you all !! ;) :p

12-26-2003, 02:20 AM
omg Joske I wish I'd heard your warning BEFORE I watched the show!! That was horrible!!! No offense but how did he win! LOL! Surely there must be a better singer in a country as beautiful as Belgium lol :) but the worst award from me goes to the German... his dancing was purely AWFUL and his singing not much better. He hit a few notes that just plain hurt my ears lol

I actually didn't like most of them... if I were going to vote I'd vote for the South African guy, I just really liked his vocal tone, it was nice and rich and full and he sang with good technique.... and I also liked the guy from Norway, and the Lebanese girl had a pretty voice. Kelly is still my fave of all-time. Her voice just makes me :eek: every time she opens her mouth and it's been that way since the first time I saw her sing. I did NOT like Guy at all... his voice just did not do it for me, not at all. The Dutch guy was cool, though, I liked his style... but his voice is a little weak compared to people like Kelly and Ryan (Canada, though I don't really like him he has a decent, strong voice)

but what kind of crack was the Polish judge on? And I thought Simon was dumb!

12-26-2003, 10:41 AM
I'd like to thank Ryan for doing a "Guy Sebastien" on me and ruining a favourite song for me. Kudos mate! I wish I hadnt voted prior to watching the show, I didn't think I'd watch. But, as with Aus Idol i was sucked in! Most impressive to me were Kurt and Heinz (possibly relating to my dating history, but we wont go there ;)). Also Alexander, who I did vote for...but for doing something fun, and challenging himself (though a bit too much I dare say!)

Simon Cowell. Interesting fellow. Calling people odd and ugly. I'd like to use the saying "It takes one to know one" What an ass! I voted:
Heinz-2
Kurt-2 (though might vote some more!)
Alexander -1 (in the hope everyone will do it to annoy the judges!)

Also very proud of Dicko on the show... he was a pussy cat compared to Cowell. Polish guy reminded me of Mark Holden with his wanker-ish comments about nothing in particular.

Didn't really like that Alex chick. She bothered me a bit. Her voice was different, in a catatonia way!

Antwerpen
12-26-2003, 09:50 PM
Here's my opinion:
-The judges were cruel and rude ( the polish judge was crazy :crazy:- but he cracked me up anyway)
-The guy from Norway has a kickass voice ( he's not what I call attractive but his voice makes up for that)
-I'm from Belgium and I was ashamed :o Peter sucked big time (why, oh why didn't we vote for Nathalie(runner-up))
-The winner will be America, UK or Australië (not based on singing ability ofcourse, stop pretending it's a singing contest :devil: )

But that's just my modest opinion :D
Good night everyone! :zzz: too much x-mas partying for me

This is how i would rate every1.

12 points- Guy (I'm Australian and plus i felt he was the best male preformer of the night he involved the audience and even tho his song choice didnt let him showoff all his abilities, I still thought he did a good job considering he just finished with aussie idol, recorded his album in 8 days and has all this promotion to do.)

10 points- Kelly (By far the best female preformace of the night)

9 points- Will (He had a really stage presence but it seemed like he didnt really want 2 be there but im glad he was cause he's delcious :) )

8 points- Heinz (good voice, good looks he seems to have the package)

7 points- Kurt (well i probably should have put him were Heinz is but other then his gr8 preformance i didnt really feel like he had any charisma or anything else but i suppose i only saw him for 2 mins so i cant really judge.)

6 points- Alex (I just loved her personality, I dont think we got 2 see her best in her preformance and i think we actually might see more of her after the competition).

5 points- Diana (I really liked her voice and i wish i could have understood what she was saying but it was beautiful i thought.)

4 points- Ryan (I liked his preformance but i didnt really feel drawn to him, i think he's the type of person u have to watch on a show like a idol 4 a while from him 2 grow on you.)

3 points- Peter ( I liked his preformance but i think he might not reach the audience he wants through idol)

2 points- Alex (i was going 2 put him last but i dunno i think he tried to do something different and the judges were just soo mean 2 him.)

1 point- Jamai (i liked him and his glasses but i suppose some1 has to be last)

After reading some comments here I couldn't resist to repost:

http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?p=2849954#post2849954


He had his own method of explaining it, but the Polish judge was correct:
Only three original and marvelous performances that were not fake:
-Kurt
-Peter
-Ryan
BTW not by accident the three older contestants

I personally like his style of presenting it, but most people don't see through his amusing comments.

The guy that 'played' US judge, Simon, was the real moron, it was obvious he, by all means, tried to promote the US contestant, Kelly. I hope people see through his low attempts to bash everyone but Kelly and, of course, the UK contestant, Will.
He thought hmmm easy win for Kelly, but then came Peter, and he couldn't give some grounded critic so he gave the moronic comment: you're fake. I'm glad Peter put him on his place!
He was still recovering of Peters grounded critics on him, and then came Kurt. Then he really had to do it the dirty way, because Kurt was really brilliant. So he just sad he was ugly. Can you get any lower than that!

BTW Simon has proven to everyone in the US and UK to be a moron by bashing the ultimate winners during the competition. He had to take his words back then and he will also have to do it now.

BTW The canadian judge correctly noted that kellys voice isn't all that compared with the best. And her voice is the only thing she has to play out, her performance (not including her voice) was nothing. She apparently knew that and tried to focus the performance on her voice, she wanted to score with her voice, and that resulted in shouting, making the song terrible to listen to.

BTW Simon was saying that Kelly has already 'world' wide succes, I'm certain most people outside the US never heard of her, including me. Many US citizens apparently don't know the world is much bigger than the US, or are they just plain ignorant?

The Spaniard guys/gals of Operación Triunfo (the same format of these programs) are much better than all these "idols".

I love Vicente....I hope he can win Eurovisión next year. :)

Oh you gotta love Jazzy!!! dont worry i didnt find what ur wrote boring, i actually found it quite funny ;) I cant belive u found a dream more important that IDOL :mad: :) , actually i wish didn't wake up 2 watch it either because i thought it was boring :o

and i truly do believe (no offence to Kurt because i thought he was a worthy winner) if the audience had seen more of Guy not just 2mins of him performing waay below his best, they would have fallen in love with him just as we did.
DON'T WORRY AUSTRALIA STILL LOVES U GUY!!!

Heia Kurt.

I voted for him, yes he was definitely real and could actually sing, so I am surprised that he won.

Peter came in third !? Wowwww mama! I think his little "rebellion" thing of the last show played at least a small role in that, no? But it's cool though, we even kept up with Kelly *natural woman* Clarkson... That's pretty amazing IMO :) And Kurt *the Hobbit* N. definitely deserved to win. He also chose a great great song to sing, so he couldn't lose.. Fantastic! Although I haven't seen the entire show of last week, when I saw the short fragments they showed this week, I was amazed by Guy Sebastian's voice... It's brilliant! But ye I haven't seen his whole act so maybe I missed something that made it less good? :confused: Anyway, I'm pretty happy with the results.. Is all I can say ;) Thathaaaaa

thanks joske ;)
Guy came 7th?! thats an absolute JOKE but i think its stupid how everyones like...he'll pull thru...its O-K...coz i dont think he cared that much about it...it would have been great if he did better but like one of the other idols said, it's not the end of the world, its just a competition?

Jazzy
01-04-2004, 09:54 AM
yeh, true esther! does any1 think the competition waz fair? if u really look @ it, we could only judge 1 of each of the idols songs, which is hard 2 c how good a singer can sing, not saying, they were( they wee obviously good!)
