Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : October 8 2008
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, October 9, 2008 5 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Priddis hits low note SHIREEN KHALIL Roshani Priddis performs on Australian Idol this week. Love the hair, hate the corset, you look too short for it but it was a very good performance' ' Another fashion critic and Australian Idol judge KYLE SANDILANDS FOR the first time on Australian Idol, Ashfield contestant Roshani Priddis found herself in the bot- tom three on Monday night's ver- dict show. Priddis was shocked to know that despite the judges' positive comments on her ABBA perform- ance of Money, Money, Money, she was in the bottom three with Madam Parker and Chrislyn Hamilton. ''Maybe Australia didn't like it and it was too theatrical?'' Priddis said. She chose to perform the song cabaret-style and on Monday night's rehearsal said the judges would either love it or hate it. ''It's definitely got a bluesy feel to it and a lot of attitude and I can put a bit of character in it like cabaret . . .'' she said. ''I think the judges will hate it or love it but I'm waiting for them to rip it apart.'' The judges loved it but Ian (Dicko) Dickson said when he found out she was going to sing the song theatrically, he was nervous because he didn't feel her vocals were ''rude'' enough. ''But I got to say you really carried that well. Fantastic Roshani, well done,'' he said. Kyle Sandilands and Marcia Hines both agreed with Dicko and said it was a great, fun perform- ance, however Sandilands wasn't too impressed with her corset. Priddis wore a tight red corset, black rose choker and a three- quarter grey skirt with long grey gloves. ''Love the hair, hate the corset, you look too short for it but it was a very good performance,'' Sandilands said. The only thing Priddis was worried about was not being able to breathe in the corset during her performance. ''It wasn't so tight and wasn't as bad as I thought it would be,'' she said. However, it wasn't the outfit that left her breathless, but rather being in the bottom three for the first time. Before reading the verdict, presenter James Matheson said it was a shock for all to see three amazing girls in the bottom three and urged Australia to get behind their favourite singers. Priddis was the first safe con- testant, while Madam Parker, of Beverly Hills, left the show after receiving the fewest votes. Priddis was sad to see good friend Parker voted off the show. ''We share a room together in the Idol house and I have devel- oped a great friendship with Madam Parker,'' Priddis said. Protesters to march against V8s FIONA BRADY Have your say Comment on this story at www.innerwestweekly.com.au A PUBLIC rally against the con- troversial V8 Supercars race through Sydney Olympic Park will take place on Sunday, October 19.The Save Olympic Park -- No V8 Race committee is organising the event in the Overflow on Sunday week. Speeches will begin at noon. Committee member and Newington resident Tom Bohan said his committee had been inun- dated with support since Premier Nathan Rees announced the event last week and he called on race opponents to join the rally. ''We have had support from all over the state, it is amazing,'' he said. ''People are angry.'' Mr Bohan has called on the Premier to release financial mod- elling and evidence to support his claims that the Sydney 400 will contribute more than $100 million to the NSW economy and create 100 full-time jobs and 75 NSW apprenticeships. Sixty per cent of respondents who have taken part so far in a poll on the Inner-West Weekly's website are opposed to the V8s coming to Olympic Park. The poll remains open until 5pm Friday.
