    I’ve been hearing a lot of talk (on other boards) about how the whole of Australia will carry to Toby to the top three ala MiG. Based on the numbers, I can’t see how this is the case.

    -We only have a population of 20 million
    -They don’t broadcast the show on free-to-air television, and only a small percentage have access to pay-tv
    -500,000 watched last year’s finale, which is peanuts compared to 8 million viewers in the US.
    -The voting window is an hour less

    Even though I’m also a Melbournian, I threw some votes towards some of the girls like Storm instead, with Tobes is one of my least favourite contestants.

    Does anyone know if Toby's story is hitting the papers and such in Australia? I am just wondering if word of mouth, internet and such are going to be giving him a large voter turnout from his homeland.

    Nope. Rockstar is not that big of a deal here. The declining Aussie Idol franchise still gets top ratings, just like in the states. And unlike Magni, Toby is not an established singer in his respective homeland.

    Okay, thanks for the information. I didn't know you are from Australia, so it is nice to have someone with the inside information from there.

    I genuinely like Toby. I find that he is very rock, without being a freak. He would probably fit in well personality wise with the SN guys - he seems to be able to get along with just about everyone.
    AND... when he sang Layla this week, he actually made me like the song. Normally, Layla is one of my least favorite songs of all time. Way to go Toby!

    Do you think that the Australian fans played a bigger role last year because it was also an Australian band? That could make a difference, no?

    I think Toby looks like a good fit for Supernova, based on his performance last night.
