Next to temperance, a quiet conscience, a cheerful mind and active habits, I place early rising as a means of health and happiness.Source Unknown
The following comments have been documented from the TV show, Australian Idol. These comments were given to Dan O'Connor.
Screaming Jets - Better
- Mark Holden: Hi Dan. You're clearly the ladies choice; there's no doubt about it. I'm sure there's a market for you in terms of selling records. You made a noble attempt at working the crowd. But for me, if you're going to be the Australian Idol, I want you to do better than that. I think you're gonna have to squeeze out more sparks. Quite simply I think you'll have to sing better. To communicate to the guys at well as the girls - cause you've got the girls, there's no question about that - you're going to have to show us another side.
- Marcia Hines: In your performance, you expelled too much energy in the early stages of the song. You've gotta learn to disperse that properly and then you'll perform fine. Well done.
- Ian Dicko Dickson: Yeah you've got the chicks - definitely. There's very little chance of you leaving this competition over the next 4 weeks. I think you need to listen to what Mark has said. You're going to have to knuckle down and work really hard on that voice. Mark's right, you haven't got a superstar voice but you have some fabulous looks. I think that was a really brave song for you to do and I really give you big chops for taking a risk and doing something different cause that's a side of you we haven't seen. I think you're gonna have to get up to speed in double quick time if you're gonna win this competition and make something of it. I don't think you're going anywhere for the next 4 weeks at least so it's gonna give you the opportunity to work with some great people to improve your vocal.
- Dark Helmet: Nobody gives me the raspberry!!!!!
Creed - Higher
