Well I'll admit that I found myself watching some such show just before, and none of the singers had voices even remotely as good as Bono's. Thus, the question...

I'd hope someone would talk him into leaving. He shouldn't degrade himself like that.

I'm going to be really difficult here and say that my previous comment still stands. I can't imagine Bono ever appearring on a contest like that ... it's just not Bono.

I've always thought about the likes of Bono/Springsteen/Gabriel etc going on doing a charity celebrity pop idol. It certianly would be interesting!!

As for how Bono would fair on a celebrity special, well maybe he's do well due to U2's large fan base which would back him up on the polls, but there's many singers out there with a much better voice imo.

Oh yes, absolutely... but I do wonder how one of the greatest voices ever would fare in such a setting.

You can put this fancy down to too much watching of Survivor or something :D (although I don't watch that, so...)

I dread to think. Those shows are all about dismissing people or encouraging them for all the wrong reasons. I saw a comment from someone on Ceefax a while back, saying they'd been watching Fame Academy and one of the judges had advised a contestant not to move about so much on stage... this viewer pointed out that Elvis would never have made it big if he'd been a contestant on that show!

Well yes... that's exactly what I was asking (but I obviously worded this question horribly, lol) Would one of the greatest rock stars/voices in our eyes be appreciated?

Thats an interesting thought. Just any singer I like in general even. I hate to say it but I don't think a lot of people I like would do oh so well. But American Idol only accounts for how well you sing and I think there's so much more to it for great musicians you know. I hope this is making sense. hmm I don't think a Bono would win, might get far though. Eh I'm just thinking about what they probably would be looking for and not my personal opinion. But I've never really watched that show even so what the heck do I know. :p
