Product Description

Review

Thousands of aspiring superstars flocked to auditions all over the country with the dream of making the big time as a pop star. This official book follows those hopefuls as they were whittled down on camera by a highly critical and controversial panel of entertainment professionals. The survivors found themselves at the mercy of the viewing public who voted them off the programme, week by week, until only one remained. Illustrated throughout with exclusive colour photos and behind-the-scene gossip. This is the true story of the TV event of the year.

Format: Paperback
I'll freely admit that I was addicted to Pop Idol, and bought this book as soon as it came out. However, I found that the majority of it seemed to be rehashed from the Pop Idol website and various articles that have been in magazines over the last few months. If you haven't been following the webiste or reading the UK entertainment magazines, then you might find this more interesting, but is it really worth its retail price...?

This book is a good way to look back at the phenomena that was Pop Idol. Looking back at auditions, finals, the Final 10 etc it covers most of the ground covered in the programme. Theres nothing new however that viewers haven't seen already and its put together a bit ameteurishly, but still its a good read!

A week by week reminder of the high and the lows of the show - from Pete and Simon's bust ups, to the contestants views of the process. A worthwhile souveneir purchase for all hardcore fans!

This book is great for REAL enthuisasts of the Pop Idol show. Especially the statistics of the voting each week and the interviews with the finalists. The beginning about the auditions wasn't great, but the final 10 stuff is brilliant if you suddenly want to know who sung what each week and what happened. Not to everyone's taste, but still good (for me anyway).
