The franchise of the American idol chain, Singapore too could not loose out on the craze. Initially during the first season (which I thought was the best and most popular) as the idol hype was still all about, it looked like a really good opportunity for potential performers out there to display their talents on a more public platform. Furthermore it was a great stepping stone for many amateur singers to step it up and gain some experience on an event with such a massive scale.

I enjoyed watching the first season of Singapore Idol very much. I remember pestering my parents so that I could call to support my then-idol Taufik Batisah who eventually still won the competition without my vote. I thought the way the contestants performed were really professional and it was really nice to see how the nation supported singing talents.

Though the aftermath of the competition did not ensure much continuous recognition to the stars, it was one of the better and more popular shows that hyped up singing talents.

Waste of time and sponsors.
Overall Rating 
 
2.5
i dont' see them on air anymore. Probably because of the lack of funds? Or the lack of talent? Or probably they thought that it was a waste of time and sponsors and would rather inject money and time into other productions which would be more refreshing to the entertainment scene rather than cheesy, corny and not that stellar vocals on TV trying to mimic other more professional singing contests like American Idol.

Pardon me for being too harsh, but I'd rather my Point Of Entry anytime. This show attracts much more viewers than this and the former is just earning and extracting more and more money from the public to vote for the contestants in which I hardly see the winners around in the entertainment scene anymore, besides the occasional one-song-air on reality shows or events.

Laughing stock for some.

I think the most interesting part is the first round of auditions when people try their very best to enter Singapore Idol. It's the only time where you can really look at the screen in disbelief, thinking how hilarious and ridiculous some people are. They just don't know where they stand.

And then there are some, that somehow emphasises on the fact that we should never judge a book by its cover, as proven by some of them.

I don't understand this show and I do hope that SIngapore can come up with something more original and singing-industry-worthy. People are watching Singapore Idol because it's very laughable, and plus, like what the others say, the final contestants fade away. We no longer see/hear about Taufik, Hady, Shazari anymore.

Who won Singapore Idol?

Let me ask you this: "In 3 seasons of Singapore Idol, who are the winners?" You can't remember right? Well, that in itself should tell you something about the show.

Some may remember Taufik, the winner of the first Singapore Idol. But even he has faded off the scene. I only remember him because my NS platoon sergeant competed in Season 1 and we watched it.

The show itself is quite entertaining to watch. The deluded people who thought they were superstar material were a hoot to laugh at. The "drama" between contestants was interesting although probably staged. And of course there were some truly talented singers who were a joy to listen too.

It is too bad that the music producers in Singapore do not seem to be able to capitalize on their talents. The winners were good, some even had that ever elusive X-factor. But the driving force to catapult them to international fame is sadly lacking.
