Philippine Idol Updates: Asian Idol Competition “Confeermed”

27 06 2007

It’s confeermed, my amigas! Not just confirmed, but confeermed! The speculation of a regional Idol competition is finally coming true.

Sources from Indonesia confeerm that there will be a competition among Asian winners of the Idol franchise that will held around November 2007. Indonesia’s largest TV network, RCTI (which also hosts Indonesian Idol), will be the official broadcaster and the program will also be shown in TV stations among competing countries.

Seven Idol winners from India, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Vietnam will participate in this regional tilt. Each country will send a representative from their choice season. In the case of Philippines and Vietnam, they would have to send the winner from their first season.

Every franchise will have a representing judge in the competition to comment on each finalist’s performance, while viewers from all seven countries will have to vote through online or SMS as to who stays or who goes (indicating that there could be plans of lengthening the contest).

According to Indonesian Idol Project Director Daniel Hartanto, they have yet to decide who among Indonesian Idol winners will represent their country since Season 4 is currently ongoing. He also added that India, Malaysia, and the Philippines are the countries to beat, especially the Philippines.

So who do you think would win it? Watch this video and have your say.

(Please note that Australia, New Zealand, and the Pan-Arab region are not part of the competition)

1. galing naman–the indonesian idol was singing a pinoy song hehehe
2. voting pa rin ba ‘to? then alam na natin kung sino mananalo hehehe we aint the texting capital for nuthin’
3. kung american/western ang judges, i think we have a REALLY good chance (diction at diction na lang); although im kinda crushing on the singaporean idol as well.

guys , I think there’s a problem. Kasi sa world idol na ginanap noong 2003, kung american citizen ka, hindi mo pwedeng iboto ang kababayan mo kundi ibang bansa. Kung ganon din ang gagawin sa asian idol, eh hindi natin maboboto si Mau marcelo, pero hindi rin maiboboto ng ibang bansa ang kababayan nila.

HUWAT! Kala ko ba si Christian Bautista na ang Asia’s Pop Idol? Baket umaapila pa sila?

Anyway, for sure kung may Internet at text voting ito, 200% panalo na ang Pinas! Miss Photogenic nga sa Miss U kinabog naten, Asia’s Idol pa kaya?

Eh sino naman nga judges? Sana nga ipalabas yan dito, para hindi puro WOW MALI bites ang palabas sa channel 5.

FYI! the format of Asian idol will be like World Idol so we cannot vote for our own contestant instead other countries have the chance to vote for our contestant and vice versa. kya wag maging confident na tau na ang mna2lo,dhil hndi tau pwedeng bumoto kay mau. the least we can do is not to vote for other contestants,right?
