Singapore Idol Top 24 : Nurul Huda

In The Shower with :
Nurul Huda
(nickname : Ebony)

Nurul and Syltra are the only two that gave me a short 3-word sentence when I asked them to describe themselves in 3 words. Everyone else gave 3 separate words. Nurul said "Happy Go Lucky!" and she is! She's also SUCH a ham for the camera!

And doesn't Nurul look like an Asian version of Reese Witherspoon? The resemblance is uncanny minus the blonde hair and blue eyes!

Quick facts about Nurul :
Lives in : East
Occupation : Sales Assistant
Favourite MJ song : Earth Song
Favourite Judge : Ken
Single/Attached? : Single

Who does she think will win Idol 3? Theodore.

If music is your first love, what is your second?
My second greatest love is watching tv (yes! a girl after my own heart! Woot!), especially football matches or even wrestling (oh, so NOT on my team anymore...LOL!). I always watch tv till the tv watches me,.... sleep that is hehehe.... tsk tsk tsk bad habit I know.

Secret Single Behaviour : What do you do on your own that no one knows about?
My one and only small smelly bolster a.k.a "hen-tay". Nothing can replace it. I cant sleep without it simply because of its smell. (I hope it goes for a 'bath' every now and then...)
Let me tell u a short story...there's this night when I slept without washing my face cuddling around with "hen-tay" and I slowly dozed off to dreamland.
Next morning, the first thing I saw was that....she GOT A PAIR OF EYES!!! Thanks to my mascara-LAH. (Hen-tay is a she??!)

summerr's take :
Nurul has got husky powerhouse vocals reminiscent of Nana from Season 1. She's a little chilli padi and she's a natural performer. Nurul was the only one who got props from Zaki at the Choreo workshop during Bootcamp.

Nurul not only sings and dances well, Producers who've heard her upcoming take on Rihanna's "Rehab" tell me that its totally unexpected and very unique. So I'm really looking forward to it.

My only hope for Nurul is that her diction improves as she progresses in the competition, I'm assuming she will because she is just so talented. And so nice, you can't help but love her!

  3. She looks tiny on TV. Love her voice! Noticed her in those national day promos already. Hope she goes far ):

  4. The Judges got it terribly WRONG..
    Nurul was the only person worth watching.
    Best wishes and im sure you will do bigger and better things in life than the rediculously judged and directed Singapore Idol.

  5. to the anon above me: you got it wrong man. nurul was really good and SO WERE THE OTHERS! this yr's sg idol contestants can really sing,just that i did not know why ytd's piano show was not their best performances. imagine you're the one singing in front of the whole sg for the first time? i was quite disappointed that most of the idols picked the wrong song choices which did not potray their full talent. syltra was the smartest/luckiest of the day :)

  6. Her voice is very good, I don't get why she got eliminated. So unfair..

  7. Im really sad to see her leave!
    i hope they would bring her back into the top12 or even a top13!!

    I doubt so!!
