Randy Jackson Slams Brit Idol

AMERICAN IDOL judge RANDY JACKSON has blasted the latest winner of the British talent show POP IDOL - for not having a strong enough voice.

Jackson was left less than impressed by MICHELLE McMANUS's vocal talents, who won the competition last year (DEC03), but insists the fact she's overweight has nothing to do with it.

Jackson says, "To be honest, I wasn't blown away by her voice.

"Michelle doesn't need to lose weight in order to have a successful career."

Pop Idol judge PETE WATERMAN, who helped choose McManus as a contestant, stormed out of the live finale of the programme after the chubby Scot was crowned winner and has since labelled her, "Rubbish. She won't even last six months."
