'You're a Star' falls to earth as sparks fly all over the show
LAST Sunday's You're a Star show, on RTE, has drawn both an ambivalent and acerbic reaction from music industry insiders. Previous Eurovision winner Linda Martin excoriated the ginger-haired siblings, Donna and Joseph McCaul, who were chosen by the public as the winners.
She dismissed the pair as "childish, inexperienced" and without star quality.
"We have less than no chance this year, they don't have the right image. Other countries send their stars; some have already sold millions of records. How can we compete when we send the likes of those two?" said diva Martin.
