I was never a fan of the band INXS, but they have a show on TV now that is much like American Idol -- only better in some ways. For one, most of the music has a harder edge to it, unlike the teeny-bopper music of American Idol. Also, American Idol very seldom had exceptional singers on the show. This past year we had Nadia, Bo, and Carrie who were all very good, but nothing that made you say "I have to go out and buy the record." On Rockstar INXS, the contestants are all trying to win a recording contract and tour as the lead singer of the band INXS. That's a pretty good prize, and the talent on the show is pretty impressive. Two standouts are Jordis and Mig. For those interested in music, check out the following videos (after you get past the annoying advertising) and see what you think:
Jordis doing "Heart Shaped Box":
Jordis doing "The Man Who Sold the World":
Mig doing "Baby I Love Your Way":
The show is on Tuesday night at 10:00PM for the performance show, and Wednesday night at 9:00 for the results show on CBS.
