Malaysian Idol and the power of SMSes

I've always loved American Idol, but am not a follower of Malaysian Idol season 2. In fact, I've only watch 1.25 episodes of Malaysian Idol 2. 1.25 episodes because the first time I saw one of the episode of Malaysian Idol 2, I was appalled by the types of participants that were selected! My viewing lasted only for a few minutes. The 2nd time I watched Malaysian Idol 2 was when my hubby tuned in to watch the finals on TV.

I was playing with my two kids when I heard Daniel's voice. I asked dear hubby if that was one of the finalists and he said yes. Gosh! We're talking about Malaysian Idol, man! How could he ever be one of the finalist, I debated! All of us in the household (my mum, my maid, my hubby and myself) agreed that he doesn't qualify to be one of the finalists, let alone being the winner. And when Jacklyn Victor came in somewhere at the end, it was a far far cry on who is the best.

Nita can sing, but her voice can be quite unstable at certain times. She's got this habit of pursing her lips which can be quite irritating. She's tall and definitely a head-turner I would say.

It was pure entertainment for us all when both Nita and Daniel performed together. hehehehe. Quite a funny sight, one tall lady with one short guy....

Well... well... well... it was a sudden surprised when I realised that Daniel won, and winning by more than 65% of the total votes seem to be even more surprising!

Daniel mentioned something like he was chosen to be the winner because of his talents!! err...... talents? Actually, I don't really know what he's singing leh.....

He also mentioned that one parent called him up to say that he makes a good role model for the younger generation or something like that. There you have it! It's the power of the teens and the young adults that generate the SMSes for him!! These are the youngsters who have the purchasing power, the decision to decide who should win! Come to think of it, Daniel is quite charming and confident of himself. No doubt the teens will vote for him. He's probably got that "x-factor", that seasoning that will push him further.

Ha Ha Ha... the telcos are making big bucks out of all the SMSes. Ha Ha Ha... Daniel has the final laugh as well. He won, and he deserves it. You must have fans to support you, or else... down you go. So... congrats Daniel. and to you too, Nita. All the Best!

I only watch 0.10 or 0.005 episode and still think that Nita sing better.

Sharon, I had the final laugh too cos ALL my frens went for Nita and I was the only one screaming when the result was announced. I was watching the show with a few frens, neigbours and my family. Kekekekeke.

Not only the teens and young adults voted for Daniel BUT aunties (ahem) like me too voted for him (I'm imagining how u r reacting now, hee, hee).

Baby Smooches said...

Well, Tracy, I'm not even supporting Nita coz her type of singing don't appeal to me lah.
But between the two, Nita is definitely a better singer while Daniel seems to have the charms to gain more votes from his loyal fans.
Err.... any reasons why you voted for Daniel?

Tracy said...

Good question, Sharon. My frens asked me dat too. They were 'condemning' Daniel when he was announced the winner. I really dunno wor. It's like when some ppl look at Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise. It just 'zapped' and dat's him.

Baby Smooches said...

Tracy, I like Brad Pitt but Tom Cruise is never in my "list". eww...
Brad Pitt quite "lao hang" already.

actually i was kinda dissapointed that daniel won...i thought nita was more of a performer..and her "hey big spender" number was superb...whereas I thought daniel was a bit too girlie...and his pronounciation of the english lyrics was a bit way out la....he sings english songs with a funny accent...

speaking of brad pitt and tom cruise....can't compare this two la...it's not comparing apples to apples...i find these 2 men very very appealing in their own ways...one things for sure..they both look better and better with AGE!

and speaking of the malaysian idol (i am on the roll here...) i thought the line up of judges were horrendous...

roslan - ok la..his comments has some "meat" in them...

fauziah latif - she is a copy-cat. period. no ideas/comments of her own. always repeating what roslan said but in a diff languange. a typical fauziah latiff comment would be "Ok. Hi Daniel. Good. I Like it. You can do better. But overall, it's good." DUHHHH?????!

paul moss - well..he always have opposite opinions compared to roslan...so i guess he's the malaysian idol version of simon.

P/S and i'd also like to add that they should sack their wardrobe designer or whatever you call them cause the make-up/clothing of the idols are appalling if not all the time, MOST of the time!
