    You really have to wonder about the taste of Australian Idol voters when they place the likes of TJ Zimba before the brilliant Imogen Spendlove. I was glad to see Zimba voted out after he butchered the John Farnham classic ‘You’re the Voice’ but his elimination doesn’t alter the fact that Imogen should, at the very least, be one of the final three. Imogen is perhaps the only woman who can take on a Whitney Houston song and make it her own. I hope she has the bright future she deserves.

      Oh Imogen, I’m totally in shock! You should NOT be leaving Australian Idol – you were a mike better than anyone else in the comp! PLEASE don’t stop singing and keep chasing your dream because MANY people will be lining up to buy your first album! Your voice – technique range and tone are just sublime.
