Gareth Gates wins Pop Idol! Oh, no he didn’t. Much to everyone’s surprise, Will Young beat G-G-Gareth to the crown, in the final episode of the extremely protracted Pop Idol series. This means we can look forward to his rendition of the eminently forgettable “Evergreen” being released shortly. Sadly, this is not a cover of the Barbra Streisand standard (Luuuuuuuuurve, soft as an easy chair…). It is, however, just as bad.
