And also because it looked like it was going to be a bit different from Pop Idol and Popstars.
And the prize for the winner is absolutely amazing, a definite WOW!
I think the show was wicked especially the part where David, Sinead and Paul had to sing for a place in the Academy. I voted for David because I liked his personality and he had a good voice, even though he was really nervous when he was being interviewed he appeared to be relaxed when he was singing.
Becoming a star
I also liked the group singing but would've liked to see a bit more of the auditioning.
My faves at the moment are Lamar and Marli. I wonder if I'll still think that as the weeks go by?
I'll definitely be watching it every week to see who stays, who has to leave and to see what goes on in the Academy (and the arguments they'll probably have!!) I reckon Nigel will miss his kids and want to go home!
I bet Fame Academy will be watched by as many people as Pop Idol if not more because it's showing more of the training and the pain and effort that actually goes in to becoming a 'star'.
I'll definitely be watching it again!"
