So Suki won the One In A Million contest. Not really a big suprise, quite predictable although I backed Faizal to win after saw his last performance which is really good. And did he lose to Suki by a tiny margin of 5%! Suki collected 39% of the votes and Faizal 34 % of the votes. Faizal, he must be like ..’*%&!!?>>**&&!’ hehe.
Missed that one million.. so close yet so far. It’s really argumentative whether with this kind of talent search reality show.. you will really find a good, talented singer or will the one with real talent win or the one that’s popular with the crowd will win. And looking at the past results, seems like those who are more popular with the crowd.. won. After all, it’s the crowd that supported and voted for the person will buy his/her album. An artist only can survive if his/her album are selling well.
Suki – She can sing, that’s for sure. But I don’t see her as a future artist.. judging from her performance and choices of songs. She doesn’t has the essence and style that’s ‘her’ – to sell to the people. Most probably people vote her because she’s cute, adorable.. and that’s all. Maybe it’s good afterall, grooming a new artist from scratch… zero.. will be easier than someone that already has his/her own style.
Faizal – Got style, just sometimes sticking to his style too much – every song also = rock, must scream in order to sing??.. Good to have his own brand of music, just then maybe he can only attracts his niche of the market.
Alif – At that young age and be among the finalist, he must be something. I don’t find his performance good enough for him to become future artist, but people just like him. He’s likeable, cute? (for the ladies….not me). He’s the male version of Suki. Both getting their votes, by charming the crowd, not really by their performances.
So we will see in the future whether the winner of One In A Million can stay for long in the entertainment industry 🙂 Congratulation to Suki.. and all the best!
