Asian Idol 2007

asian idol

Watched fabulous performances by Mike Mohede (Indonesia), Abhijeet Sawant (India), Hady Mirza (Singapore), Jaclyn Victor (Malaysia), Mau Marcelo (Philippines) and Phuong Vy (Vietnam) in Asian Idol. I knew in the first place that I’m going to watch such international quality in singing and my thought was right.

Mike Mohede, Indonesian Idol, Indonesian sweetheart, of course could steal my heart with his loveable and unique character of voice. He sang ‘Mengejar Matahari’ and ‘I Believe I Can Fly’. Judges are thrown by his version of ‘I Believe I Can Fly’. I definitely VOTE for MIKE. INDO.

Jaclyn Victor, Malaysian Idol, sing with power and superb high quality in technical way. But why is the song didn’t touch my heart? (I agree with Ken Lim, Singapore Judge). Anyway, I VOTE for JACLYN. MAL.

Hady Mirza from Singapore is a good singer, but that’s it. We need more than that for Asian Idol.

Mau Marcelo from Philippines, whose my brother told me has the most powerful voice, didn’t really showed her best. She hold herself back. I know she can do more than that.

Phuong Vy from Vietnam, pretty and lovely girl, everybody loves her, and I guess she did a great job, because I can enjoy her performances. She’s truly an entertainer.

Last but not least, Abhijeet Sawant. When he sang English song, I frowned. I knew that his voice is better than that. And he really ‘perform’ in the second song. His own Indian song, Junoon. I LOVE IT. SO MUCH. He enjoy the song, up to the beat, giving a soul on this song. I JUST LOVE IT. Watch his wonderful performance on YouTube or you can see his Junoon music video in ballad version. Eel will love this :D

Can’t wait to see who’s the winner is, tonight on RCTI! (Many guest stars! Taylor Hicks, Guy Sebastian, Alisha Chinai, Rivermaya, Agnes Monica and Peterpan)
