Asian Idol !!
And the first Asian Idol goes to, Hady Mirza, Singapore,” that’s how Ata announced the voting result of Asian Idol. Hady Mirza from Singapore is the first Asian Idol. Held on December 17, 2007, at Hall D of Jakarta International Expo and watched by many viewers, Hady Mirza proudly sang Berserah on stage.
Hady Mirza was crowned the title Asian Idol, against other 5 candidates from Indonesia (Mike Mohede), Malaysia (Jaclyn Victor), Philippines (Mau Marcelo), Vietnam (Phuong Vy), and India (Abhijeet Sawant).
It wasn’t quite expected before as the judges, Paul Moss, Siu Black, Indra Lesmana, Anu Malik and Pilita Corrales didn’t predict him to be the first Asian Idol. “There are actually 3 names that deserve to win, Mike, Jaclyn, and Mau Marcelo,” Paul Moss said.
Siu Black and Indra Lesmana said basically the same thing, Mike, Mau, and Phuong Vy are the ones that deserve to be Asian Idol. “To choose one winner is hard. But if I have to, I’d pick Mike,” Indra said. Meanwhile, Hady’s winning were given positive comebacks from Singaporean Judge, Ken Lim. Being the owner of Hype Records he exclaimed that whoever wins the competition had to be appreciated. “The winner is Asian too,” Ken Lim said. Hady admits that he didn’t expect to be crowned the first Asian Idol.
He is thankful for the support and can only give thanks. “I didn’t expect to win at all. The other contestants are so great. I thank everyone who voted for me,” Hady said sincerely.
