Critical mass does count for something. Its all about the loong tail baby, the long tail.
I'm a great fan of American idol because it embraces the notion that from the masses you can find great great talent.
You won't find a more patriotic singaporean than me, but I'm sorry, Taufik, and Hady (Thank you for doing Singapore proud however), but you guys got a long long way to go. And I doubt we'll ever find talent like this guy right here.
I'm sitting in my room, and I've just been blown away by what a perfomance that would make me put money on this contestant.
The next American Idol is (I'm stealing Ryan's line) ....................... WITHOUT A DOUBT
This guy's perfomances through the auditions have blown me away. And tonight, in the first round, I can already see him going through all the way.
Its his youth, its his demeanour, its his charisma, and most importantly, its that heavenly voice mixed in along with it.
THE PURE TALENT, LOOK AT HIS PIANO SKILLS.
For all those punters out there, the first person who wants to bet against me can do so! I'm putting my money where my mouth is. 100 bucks on David! Comment on my blog if you're taking it up.
