The Pop Idol Christmas Special makes me want to smash a bauble and hack my own head off with the jagged shards.

Bah, and additionally, humbug.

[Though I have to say that if American Idol had Ant and Dec and Pete Waterman, I'd watch it *and* tape it]

So I'm thinking you weren't entertained and put in the proper holiday mood.

Anything about it especially bad or just the whole thing stunk?

I was just being a miserable swine, I think. It feels too early to be all-out Christmassy. End of this week feels about right to me.

The show wasn't terrible but it's hard to see what it's *for*. They've now voted off the best two singers: a 17-year-old girl who sounded a little like Diana Ross only better and looked like a film star, as well as being completely unspoilt; and the 'Clay Aiken' of the British competition, a geeky lad who lacked Clay's charm but had, if anything, a slightly sweeter voice (not nearly so powerful or sure a voice though)

The people they've got left are all decent singers, but they seem to be there because they're funny or cute. So if it's not about singing talent, what on earth is it for? I wonder if the format is running out of steam, after two 'Idol' competitions and two 'create a pop group' competitions.

And yet, needless to say, I am hooked on the damned programme. *g*
