Ok, so first we take wannabe singers and parade them in front of an audience (Idol), then we see if amatuers can dance… (So You Think You Can Dance) and now, just to make sure we cover the bases, can you “Act”… (Since we know newbies can direct their own movies as seen in “Project Greenlight“).

Welcome to “Grease : Your the One That I Want“… First sing for us, then dance, and soon you can try acting, all to win the role that will make your career in the $10 million dollar revival of Grease (The Play Version).

So I have watched the first couple episodes (of course introducing the British Judge), and just in case we dont have enough people using English accents, lets just fill it up with a female British co-host. (And “Seacrest Out”, but not quite there). The show itself is very Idol like (NBC has a set that looks very FOX like). Lets interview alot of poor saps stuck outside in line and all that, then come in, be belittled and tossed out. There is a certain look for Danny, and most of these guys should have hit a mirror before hitting the stage. The girls fit a bit better and had the talent on their side.

I don’t know where this will go, I am still up in the air, the one thing about Idol is that once they really weed out the crap, it is very boring for me (I am not into the teen pop and that is the target)… so if they keep it interesting, dancing, singing, and acting (which i do want to see some of these amatuers “act”), I may stay hooked and watch the season.

It may be a good one-off, I am not seeing Season 2 at this point… maybe they can surprise me.
