Singapore Idol 2009 And Sing60sMusic Idols

The winner will emerge and there will be one Singapore Idol 2009. Who will win? Sezairi Sezali or Sylvia Ratonel? Blogger wishes the two of them all the best.
It'll be butterflies in the stomach, lots of sandpaper in the throat and a Ferrari engine replacing the heart. The whole body quakes like jelly... That's how a singer feels just before he or she hits the spotlight on stage. But once the adrenalin goes into the bloodstream it's all touch and go.
If you have gone through this blog for the past year, you might have been reading about our 60s Singapore Idols (image). And there are so many that a year's blogging hasn't done much justice, especially when you need to mention the music influences from around the globe.
So as some of us take a break during this Christmas season, we wish the two Singapore Idol 2009 participants all the best. May the better person win! It's on at the Singapore Indoor Stadium this Sunday, 27th December 2009 at 8pm.

Andy, who's the singer in the photo? Is it Landi Chang?

Lam Chun See said...

Is that the RTM logo behind her?

Hi duriandave,
This picture was taken on 15th April, 1957 at the RTM studio in Singapore. I am not too familiar with Landi Chang but know she was in the same league with other Shaw Brothers' Organisation stars in the 50s and 60s. Perhaps other readers can help?

Yes, Chun See, But it must be Radio Tanah Melayu rather than Radio Telivishen Malaya? Perhaps you'd like to comment?

I only know that they had talentime and also invited pop singers from Asia to record for the radio programmes then. These are the Singapore Idols of yesteryears - my theme actually.
