Singapore Idol Top 24 : Gabrielle Ferdinands

In The Shower with :
Gabrielle Ferdinands
(nickname : Blushy)

Gabby can go from zero to bright red in under 2 seconds. Seriously. Which is why I changed her nick to Blushy. She blushes so easily! (Gabrielle, BET you're blushing NOW right if you're reading this!) Blushy is also a play on 'Mushy', Perez Hilton's nickname for Mischa Barton - I think she looks a bit like her.

Gabby says "Strange". I say "Interesting"
Gabby says "Funny". I say "Hilarious" <-- seriously. Although her humour is quite different from our other comedy queen, Jannah. Gabrielle's self-depracating humour is so point blank and unexpected, its actually quite endearing!
Gabby says "Honest". I say...ok. :)

Quick facts about Gabrielle :
Lives in : East
Occupation : Student
Favourite MJ song : Man In The Mirror
Favourite Judge : Dick
Single/Attached? : Single (wipe that drool you guys!)

Who does he think will win Idol 3? Frances.

If music is your first love, what is your second?
If I had to pick, it would be meeting new people and witnessing different cultures and places. I love finding out what makes a person or a place unique. I ask a lot of questions and I like to provoke thoughts, making someone go 'what? How did you come up with that?'. I enjoy discovering more about people and what their story is.

I've also found out that Gabrielle likes tattoos and piercings. On her 20th and her Mom's 50th birthday, they both got tattoos together! How cool is that? Gabrielle's tattoo reads 'Let Go' and her Mom's reads 'Let God' (as she's quite religious, according to Gabs). Gabrielle has also had a total of 7 piercings all over her, but only 3 remain at this point.

Secret Single Behaviour : What do you do on your own that no one knows about?
I eat cheese really weirdly. The Chesdale squares kind, I nibble around the edges so they become all 'bitemarked' then I fold it in half, then fold it again, then nibble around the edges one more time, so it becomes like a small cheese cuboid, then POP the whole thing in my mouth. Yummy. When I'm having a meal, I also have to 'neaten' my food, using my cutlery to push all the food together into an organised little pile, and no I don't have OCD. LOL!

I NEVER sit down on public toilet seats. EVER.
I'm a helicopter. I hover.
(this is hilarious classic Gabby! ROTFLMAO!!!)

summerr's take :
Gabrielle can definitely sing, it must be in her genes. Her Daddy is Mel Ferdinands, from the popular 80s band Gypsy. She's also got a very likeable personality. So vocals + personality = kaching! Right?

Well, almost. In front of the judges, she came across as shy and unsure. But in her profile video, she was funny and straightforward. Now that we're at the Piano Show stage, I hope the latter comes out more on the show. You're a natural, so don't hold back!

In the meantime, check out this vid she did with fello Top24-er Teddy. I totally enjoyed listening to it :)

Do check out her other videos on her YouTube channel, the link is at the bottom of this post.
