Singapore Idol Top 24 : Samantha Lee

In The Shower with :
Samantha Lee
(nickname : Badgirl)

When I asked Sam to describe herself in 3 words, she replied 'I Don't Know'...hrm, I wasn't sure if that was a joke or not!

Anyway, 3 words that I would use to describe her would be Sexy. Rocker. Chick. She just has that rocker chick vibe, what with the leather jacket, black heels and guitar!

Here's something else you probably didn't know about Sam, she is pretty musical. The girl plays drums, guitar and the piano. To chill, she actually indulges in classical music like Chopin (her favourite)! Hope her musicality shines through, because the Judges LURVE musicality (and usually, so does the audience)!

Quick facts about Samantha :
Lives in : Central
Occupation : Musician
Favourite MJ song : Billie Jean
Favourite Judge : Ken
Single/Attached? : Attached

Who does she think will win Idol 3? Syltra.

If music is your first love, what is your second?
Second greatest love will be cooking and baking. I can cook chinese, italian and japanese ^_^ and I can bake some really good cheesecake too.
(so totally unexpected - the Rocker is domesticated - cheesecake to boot! yum!)

Secret Single Behaviour : What do you do on your own that no one knows about?
I talk to my puppy, literally.
(woman of few words :) but she talks to her puppy, how sweet!)

summerr's take :
Producers nicknamed her 'diarrhoea girl' after her infamous latecoming episode. Thank goodness the judges decided to let her stay the day (unlike Ruben Raj's brutal dismissal).

Samantha doesn't seem the chatty type (as seen in her short and succinct answers too - while others have had verbal diarrhoea, no pun intended).

But the girl can sing.

note : Don't you think she looks like Stefanie Sun?

Check out this vid of her solo from Theatre Auditions. She's singing "Heaven". There's also a very cool cover of Immortal at her fanpage - do check it out, link is at the bottom of this post!
