Pic From Astro’s Official Page for AF6
AF6 = Akademi Fantasia, season 6, has just started, with the first concert tonight. I only realised it when it was halfway (no thanks to Nuni for mentioning it during our YM chat). But alas, Tottenham Hotspurs were playing against Portsmouth, so Aina didn’t allow me to change the channel 😦
Instead, I took a nap, to wake up just before 11pm (on hearing the AF team song 🙂 ), to know that Spurs have just won by 2-0.
Honestly, I only followed season 2 and 3 seasons of AF. AF4 I followed only about 50% of the time, and AF5 came and go “just like that” to me without much notice 😉
I still remember, when the season 2 final was aired, I was in Tokyo, and Aina was nice enough to show (using the webcam) parts of the show, especially when Linda was singing. I used to like the powerful voice of Linda’s, but eventually got fed-up with it, because most of the time Linda sang with no emotion or feeling 😦 . My other favourite of that season was Bob.
I think AF3 was one of the best, if not the best, having people like Marsha, Felix, Amelia, and of course the SMS King Mawi 🙂 , I also kinda like Kaer’s unique voice 🙂
I remember when I came back from an 11-day course in Seoul, as I entered the house, the repeat of the Prelude Concert of AF3 was on, and it was Mawi singing. I immediately said to Ayi, “Wow, I like that voice!”, to which Ayi said “Oh, That’s Mawi. He was not chosen”. I then said what a pity!
But as the public knows, Mawi was re-selected to join the group, and the rest was history.
I also remember when family members and friends found out I was in favour of Mawi, most of them reacted “Mawi?? Tak best lah… Felix is the choice la..”. I stuck by my choice, and was happy that Mawi actually came out the champion for the season.
Unfortunately if you ask me now, I have gotten over that “Mawi fever”. Mawi? To me, he’s just another singer with a very strong voice… I am not as fanatic as some other people, who initially loathed Mawi, but eventually idolise him to the extent of having all sorts of “Mawi paraphenelias”! For the record, Nuni never likes Mawi’s voice 😀
I wonder if AC Mizal can get out of Aznil’s shadow as the compere of the concert.. tonight I only managed to see Saida and Stanly singing and I think we should watch out for Stanly 😉 He sang “You Raise me Up” very well tonight! AS for the others, I can’t comment since I didn’t get to see them perform.
But then again, he might just be like Shari (of AF1) and Bob (of AF2) who have the potential but overlooked by the fans..
I hope this is the first and the last time I blog about about AF6 🙂
Oh, me voting for any one of them? Nah… don’t think so. Why waste my phone credit?
