Songs[edit]

I know it can be a nightmare to find Pop Idol 1 songs, but these are Hayley's

Hayley Evetts: Week 1: Anastacia - I was meant for loving you Week 2: Rocking Around the Christmas Tree Week 3: Do you know the way to San Jose Week 4: Show Me Heaven (Maria McKee) Week 5: Week 6: That ole devil called love.

I'll put the Abba one when I remember it. These are some other Abba ones. =]

Zoe: Thank you for the music Gareth: One of us Darius: I have a dream Rosie: Winner takes it all —Preceding unsigned comment added by Kyleofark (talkcontribs) 16:12, 17 May 2009 (UTC)

Elimination Table[edit]

I changed the old table to the one thats there now, just because this new one is the same as the tables in American Idol, which articles I feel we should be trying to follow for this one. I personally feel the one thats there now is better than the original, but if anyone disagrees, please say. I'll post the old one here, just in case we decide to change it back.

Ratings?[edit]

Any ratings information should be listed, similar to other television shows. --Cooly123 (talk) 17:58, 4 June 2009 (UTC)

Table Changes[edit]

Whilst i'm all for putting the placement of the contestants in the table "eg 1,2,3" I think it's misleading to put "Btm 2" or "Btm 3" all through the competition, when in fact, those labels were only used until halfway through. I changed it to the numbers used for other contestants from the week of the top 6 onwards, when only the bottom contestants were revealed on the show, as to not create a false impression. Stating that for example Hayley Evetts and Darius Danesh were in the bottom 3 in that week along with Rosie Ribbons, the eliminated contestant isnt accurate, as the bottom 3 was never announced, they were just the three with the least votes.

And another minor point - I changed Hayley's position from joint 5 to 6 on the table too - even though she and Aaron had the same percentage, he got more votes than her. :) Kyleofark (talk) 01:31, 13 September 2009 (UTC)
