NowUC went along to the big Idol auditions at Canberra Stadium (did they really need the whole stadium to do 2,000 auditions?) and came away with Kyle Sandilands view on what is holding back Canberrans in the entertainment industry:
Known for his harsh but straight forward comments, Sandilands said many Canberrans didnâ€™t fit Idol criteria because they lacked vibrant personalities.
â€œSome people could sing well enough but they didnâ€™t have personality, and when it comes down to it, thatâ€™s what Idol and this industry is all about,â€ said. â€œIf you donâ€™t have a personality you wonâ€™t get this kind of career.â€
It doesn’t seem to have held Kyle back.
