'World Idol' pits winners from 11 nations

Dec. 20, 2003  |  NEW YORK (AP) -- Who will be the world's favorite pop superstar? On "World Idol," a two-part special airing the evenings of Christmas and New Year's Day, "American Idol" Kelly Clarkson will compete in London with winners from 10 other countries including Germany, South Africa, England, Canada and Poland.

The program will air at 8 p.m. EST on Christmas Day and 9 p.m. EST on New Year's Day. Elton John will perform on the final-results show, the Fox network Web site said Friday. Fox is the home of "American Idol."

Viewers worldwide will have the chance to vote.

The competitors are all winners of the first season of the "Idol" series in their respective countries -- making second-season U.S. winner Ruben Studdard ineligible, the network has said.

The third season of "American Idol" will premiere Jan. 19 at 8 p.m. EST. Special episodes also will air on Jan. 20 and 21, according to Fox.

      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
