Dear reader, I have a feeling you may not want to hear this, but: I kind of like Kyle Sandilands.
At least, I like the Kyle Sandilands who's on Australian Idol. (I've never really listened to his radio show, which by most accounts is pretty boorish and horrible.) On television, Kyle is a boofhead but he's a boofhead who makes you laugh.
What I'm saying here is that Australian Idol will miss Kyle when he leaves the show in coming weeks. Fellow judges Ian "Dicko" Dickson and Marcia Hines respectively bring experienced snark and motherly grace to the panel, but no one can lay on the easy, greasy arrogance quite as well as Kyle Sandilands.
