Brazilian Idol

Brazilian network SBT bought the rights to "American Idol" for R$12 million, and debuted the show "Ídolos" last Wednesday in Brazil. From the opening track to the logo, the Brazilian version remains loyal to its American predecessor. The only difference is that the judges try way too hard to fit in the mold created by Randy, Paula, and Simon, making it simply unbearable to watch. Will it be a hit and also discover a Brazilian Kelly Clarkson? What about a Brazilian Clay Aiken? I will keep you posted.


Oh dear god, say it ain't so.
