    Yeah, FA is quite a cool prog. I watch it whenever its on terrestrial TV. It definitely beats pop idol. I agree that Alex should win.

    Ok sorry to burst your bubble and I'm sure people will be against me but the programme stinks maybe thats because theres been so many similar programmes in the past and that fame academy seems to be taken over by the big brother vibe too! its all been done before its just in a new format with new people

    Not me.

    It's TV aimed at the lowest common denominator. Nothing more.

    The BBC and people involved really couldn't care less about the contestants, provided that their own careers are enhanced by the programme. If the viewing figures are high, they are safe and let's face it many people are just voyeurs and this would appeal to that side of them.

    I mean, do we really need another David Sneddon?

    No way! Pop Idol rules! :D

    Fame Academy's alright, it's watchable but its a bit poo really! I don't think any of the contestants are particularly good, whereas there are some amazing singers on Pop Idol :yes:

    I was wondering when a fame academy thread would pop up, i nearly posted it!

    I didn't watch it at all last year, but now I'm hooked, as I am to Pop Idol too. Alex is my favourite, but I preferred her early performances to her more recent ones - her version of 'beautiful' was amazing, and 'yellow' was pretty good too. But to be honest, I'm not sure how much longevity her career would have - although i'm a fan, i can see her stuff is quite samey.

    I don't get the whole craze with Alex at all. I think she has a horrible voice, she always sounds so bloody depressed. Cheer up girl you're on telly :rolleyes: Alistair is quite cute however! ;)

    And on the Pop Idol subject, I voted for Roxanne, she's fab :thumb:

    Fame Academy is shite.

    Pop Idol is 100million times better!

    I think it should be banned from tele.
