I saw the end of Fame Academy last Friday - what WERE those men doing to "Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic"? It really wasn't for me... But my young cousin loved it, and loves this show, so I'll go for FA too.

Nadine in Popstars is a mate of mine so I just watch to make sure I vote. I'm raging Marli was voted out of FA. Sinead to win!

I thought Marli looked so much like Milly from This Life... anyone else see this? I felt so bad for her after she was unanimously voted off...

Nadine in Popstar is very good at singing but she's not very good at dancing

Fame Academy's Sinead and Ainsley are the best of the group IMO.

This is so pathetic, first they start a show and then they gotta make a million simular. There are channels only showing this crap 24/7 and they call it entertainmend?

How do i get?

i agree, Javine is so amazing!

Lamaar rocks as well! i am sure he will (should) win! I dont expect him to win though, usually in these types of shows the worst people win!

EVERYONE'S SOMEONE

I FEEL LIKE NEVE IN SCREAM, NEVER GETTING AWAY FROM THE KILLER!

I'm in love with Jack Ryder and Justin Timberlake!!!

JUST PLAIN DIRRTY!

THE UK DOES IT LIKE NOBODY DOES!!!

I prefer neither... the popstars rivals thing is flogging a dead horse in my opinion... Fame Academy is a desperate attempt by the bbc to amalgamate the concept of Big Brother and Popstars to fuse together... the result? Another example of the conveyor-belt-esque music industry that has always existed but seems to be reeling off more flash-in-the-pan acts than ever now.

I'm not exactly an ardent fan of the music that these shows produce, but I like the fact that Fame Academy is actually trying to nurture talent (from what I have seen) and some of the contestants get to sing their own material on the live show. I think what happened to Hear'Say/Myleene Klass left an unpleasant taste in the mouths of a lot of people, but there'll always be young people out there with a taste for this and the inevitable exploitation...

Plus, one of the Fame Academy teachers dyes her hair a great shade of red!! *jealous*
