Spore idol - of Hopes & & Guts & Reality

I have to confess - i really enjoy watching American Idol and yes, Singapore Idol as well. I enjoy the Hopes, the Guts, and the Reality. Like the Susan Boyle story, it often makes you want to laugh and cry at the same time, and sometimes simply applaud the guts and relish in the hopes of the contestants. 

Tonight is the 1st of the new season of Spore Idol, and we are off to a good start. The 2nd (or was it 3rd) featured contestants sand really badly, but she described her ambitions as wanting to be Singapore's Avril Lavigne. Ken, who is expected to deliver the mean lines like Simon Cowell, asked her flatly (rhetorically) - "Are you living in this world? You can't sing."

There were some beeps in the post-audition interview with Spore's Avril Lavigne.

Krauser, that guy who dressed like a Japanese version of Kiss, with the Chinese word "Kill" written on his forehead, who went on to sing John Lennon's "Imagine"... we do have strange people in Singapore and it is all good. Dick Lee politely commented that he looked like Cher.. ? Unfortunately he can't sing. 

That girl who went in with the Lady Gaga Mask- she can really sing! - Gosh she could be our answer to Susan Boyle. The mask is a bad idea. 

Riding on "UP" the Pixar cartoon with an old man as the protagonist, that girl who brought her grandma in and sang to her "Ain't no Mountain High enough.." - very moving indeed. Luckily she can sing.

And now i have to wait a week for my fix of Spore Idol!!!
