Short Stack's giant leap to the top of the charts Short Stack have come a long way (see what I did there?)... all the way to the top of the ARIA chart.

The Central Coast three-piece scored the number one spot this week with their debut album Stack is the New Black, thanks to an insanely rabid a devoted fanbase that follows the band's every move via MySpace and YouTube.

Seriously, though, the boys — Shaun Diviney, Andy Clemmensen and Bradie Webb — deserve their success. I heard a story recently about how they ran some competition where they personally called up 1000 winners. No, I didn't accidentally type a few extra zeroes there. THEY ACTUALLY PHONED AND SPOKE TO ONE THOUSAND PEOPLE. That is hardcore.

Australian Idol: semifinal 1 Kudos to new judge Jay Dee (who I'm henceforth referring to as JD, because typing those extra four letters hurts my delicate fingers) for handling his first live episode of Australian Idol with calm grace. If I were in his seat I'd've been crapping myself.

Big changes are afoot this year: JD has, of course, taken over from Kyle; Andrew G is hosting the show solo for the very first time (okay, perhaps with a little help from Ricki-Lee); and the rules have changed so that you kids at home don't have to wait till the end of the show before you can vote. Surely that advantages the contestants who sing earliest, but whatever.

Read the full post for MusicFIX's verdict on the show!

Australian Idol: and the new judge is... this guy! Hi, Jay Dee Springbett! You're the new judge on Australian Idol. Before that, you were the "senior director of A&R" (whatever that is) for Sony Music. You're heaps better looking than Kyle Sandilands so I reckon you'll go down a treat with the Idol audience.

... however. I'm bracing for an epic Jay Dee vs Dicko feud in future instalments. Two sarcastic Brits on the judging panel? This will only end in tears.
