Tonight’s live Verdict show was amusing for the moment when James Mathison made two, make that two, gags at the expense of Axle Whitehead who performed his single, “I Don’t Do Surprises.” Mathison mocked unzipping his pants, in reference to Whitehead’s infamous penis exposure at the ARIA Awards. Seems no matter how hard he tries to reinvent his career that moment keeps getting referenced.
Another contestant also corrected Andrew G who said Western Australia must have voted a lot for him. Nope Mr G, he was a judge’s choice. Doh!
You gotta love live television.
