View Full Version : Overdose of local American Idols...

When it rains it pours...

Look at what our TV stations are offering us:-

RTM - Bintang RTM
8tv - American Idol & M'sian Idol (coming soon)
astro - Akademi Fantasia & American Idol (much slower than 8tv!)
ntv7 - Who Will Win (WWW), WWW (Chinese) & Audition

That's 7 talentime contests in all - to me - that's an overdose!

Joked with my friends that any rejected contestant from one show who wins in another show will show that the standards can vary, especially those involving phone-ins. (Well, the charges for the phone-ins can be a totally new story by itself!)

I was disappointed that my fav singer got voted off from Am.Idol last week - sorry can't mention this person's name so as to not spoil the fun for those who's following it on astro. :D

Hi buddy KH EE:) - Please tell Orchi which contestant got the boots last Saturday? Orchi missed the result on last Saturday.:)

Err....on American Idol

when it rains, there's no ASTRO!!!!

Hey achee, I didn't know you have a good sense of CLEAN humour. I must learn that from you as mine is as polluted as the monsoon drain in Kampong Kayu Ara.

If you watch ET or Entertainment Tonight on Channel GKWN (God Knows What Number as I always get confused over NTV 7, Channel 8 and Channel 9 as they are the more free to air liberalised channels) the results are already made known. Last week I think it was on Wednesday night that I came to know who got voted out in ET so the results on Saturday on the American Idol was an anti climax. I myself was disappointed that she got voted out though she is a very good black singer. I think it was Barry Manilow who said that she could be the reason that make him want to sing again. Malaysian idol? Please lah, don't imitate for the sake of imitation. We can't come even near it but I heard they have to short list from the thousands who have registered. In the words of the Hokkien "don't take people bottom as your face." (em tang tek lang eh ka chiu (backside) choh lu eh been (face) puay - hope I got it right) The question everybody as is asking is "Who is going to be our Malaysian William Hung?"

Hi pcYeoh:) - A while ago, you got someone here worked up n surprised at your Sg. Kelang Jokes...now you got Orchi worked up all over again.

Just which contestant was booted out last Saturday?? Which black lady singer? Fantasia? Orchi HOpes not....

PLease somebody tell Orchi it is not Fantasia that got booted out!

Orchi I have PM u the out-voted contestant - hope ur PM box is not full unlike achee's (achee, ur fastmail also full-lah:D)

No need to wait for Ent Tonight as u can surf to www.idolonfox.com on Fridays after 12noon, our time, to find out the ousted contestant. ;)

this reality show is finishing soon & after survivor & explorace (yes, tv3's explorace) ended, there's a void in my life! Wonder when CBS is bringing back The Amazing Race Part 5 (i think)? :)

Hi buddy KH EE:) - Thanks for the PM. Yes that is a pity to loose Latoya London in the competition. She is definitely a much better singer too. Orchi actually picked both Latoya n Fantasia to be the final 2. Guess like what Cowell said is true, the Hawaiian have like 5 phones for each person in support of their candidate 100%ly.:)

It is La Toya London lah.

Now we left with the last three.


They've come this far. But who has what it takes to go all the way? We may learn Tuesday night when the ladies each sing three songs, one that they chose, one that the judges chose and one that music industry giant Clive Davis chooses for them. There's more pressure than ever riding on each performance! Who will step up? Find out TONIGHT at 8/7c on FOX and then vote!

Then come back TOMORROW at 9/8c for the live, one-hour results when we get our two finalists!

orchi, orchi, when I PM u, it was meant to be off this forum as I believed that some ppl are following A.Idol thru' astro (like my sis) & may not want to know the ousted singers... anyway it's out & may the most popular (read: not TALENTED!) contestant win but it's no big thing tho.

Look at all AI finalists from last year - they r all doing well with albums here & there. Also ppl say that last yr's runner-up, Clay Aitkin is outselling last yr's winner, Ruben Stoddart (sori if wrong spellings both both guys). So there's life for latoya & the other ousted finalist except maybe john stevens - this guy can't sing & defintely can't handle fast numbers. Better still, be last like William Hung... :D

Basing on Elton John's "accusation" that this is a racist competition when the 3 divas, latoya, fantasia & jennifer were in the bottom 3, I believed the final 2 would be jasmine & diana with diana having an edge as she's a full-blooded american while jasmine is part filipino... just my thots based on american's voting, don't hammer me-lah.:p

Hey, it's down to the final 2 - 4 those interested, find out more @ www.idolonfox.com - don't wanna spoil ur fun! :o

My mistake - u can get the results b4 12noon, Fridays (our time).

According to NST, there'll be a LIVE telecast of American Idol final 2 this wed, 26/5 with the results, also LIVE, on Thu 27/5 (11am) on 8tv.

However surfed to www.8tv.com.my but couldn't find this LIVE telecast thingy! :confused: But saw a lot of sperms heading for a light bulb with the 8tv logo as a filament! :p
