Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : October 29 2008
MB INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, October 30, 2008 7 NEWS www.innerwestweekly.com.au Roshani's journey ends SHIREEN KHALIL Your outfit looks like a dog has savaged a take- away chicken wrapper' ' Idol judge and fashion critic KYLE SANDILANDS Ashfield Australian Idol contestant Roshani Priddis performing on Sunday's Rolling Stones night. SHE had hopes of being the next Australian Idol, but Roshani Priddis's Idol journey came to an end on Monday night after the judges advised her she chose the ''wrong song''. On Sunday night's Rolling Stones show Priddis took the stage to the 1971 classic Wild Horses and despite believing she chose the best song, the judges particularly Kyle Sandilands, thought it was ''stupid, stupid . . . to choose that song out of all the Rolling Stones songs''. On Monday night's verdict show Priddis justified her song choice by saying she really loved it. ''To be really honest I loved that song and I sang with all my guts out there,'' she said. ''I was just trying to really enjoy it and put it out there and I think it was a good song choice for me and I have to stick by that, that's what my heart says.'' However Sandilands said just because she liked it, that didn't mean the Australian voting public liked it. He also referred to her outfit by saying it ''looks like a dog has savaged a takeaway chicken wrap- per''. ''You are such a nice looking girl; you've got so many choices of clothes, why do you wear rags every week, I have no idea,'' he said. Priddis defended her shiny out- fit by saying it was style, but Kyle stuck by his word and said it was just stupid. After being named in the bottom three with Teale Jakubenko and Luke Robson, the judges said comparing to the rest of the per- formances, they were the weakest. Ian (Dicko) Dickson said Priddis had been a bit of a hit-and-miss in this final season and it had usually been down to song choice. ''You did an OK job of Wild Horses but I feel there's so many great pop melodies with real en- ergy for you to shine,'' Dicko said. ''You really sucked the life out of that song. I don't know what you've done with it, there was no desperation in it, it just felt cab- aret really.'' It was down to Robson and Priddis and the Ashfield local received the least amount of votes. Priddis said: ''It's a shame you know, I've really enjoyed it. This has been the time of my life really and I'll always remember it. ''It's been the hardest thing but the most awesome thing at the same time and I'm just real disap- pointed that I had to leave on a sour note with you guys (judges) 'cause I have so much respect for you. ''And thanks to everyone that supported me and everyone in- volved in the show, it's been unbelievable. You guys rock.''
