A Saturday night gem., 2 April 2003
Author: jamie_likeskylie from United Kingdom

Reborn In The USA started in March 2003 airing on Saturday nights. The idea of the show as to resurrect the careers of former pop stars by taking them around the USA on a bus and making them perform live in front of an audience in various States. Each week the performers with the least studio audience votes were up up for eviction from the bus and sent back home to the UK. Viewers voted for the one they wanted to stay on the bus. There was a good range of performers from 80's pop lovely Sonia to 70's rocker Elkie Brooks and crooner Tony Hadley. Surprising entrants were Gina G and ex-Ultimate Kaos member Haydon who were only in their 20's! The show was rather cheaply made but this added to it's charm. The contestants were made to stay in run down hotels and eat fast food much to their annoyance. Although the singers aren't exactly the best in world the show was still great entertainment and the cat-fights between Sonia and Dollar were hilarious. Early evictees were not surprisingly Dollar (David Van Day & Theresa Bazarr) followed by Gina G and Elkie Brooks. Top notch!
