The great MJ Trailer shoot

Beat it! Beat it! No one wants to be defeated!
That is definitely the game plan for each of the Top 10 right now. But just 2 days short of a month ago, they were still in 'play' mode.

On Sept 12th, I was surrounded by 13 Michael Jackson impersonators. The Top 13 were dressed up in MJ garb for their trailer shoot to promote MJ Week.

Here are the behind-the-scenes pics from that part of the day (they shot 3 other trailers that day in various different outfits and themes, but I can't give those away yet :))

The first few collages are of the Idols sitting around the hallway chillin' and waitin' to go into the studio for the shoot. They also decided to practice some MJ-esque poses (cos the Director said, each one had to strike a pose for their individual close-ups) and their overall 'dance routine' for the shoot. The song du jour .... MJ's 'Beat It'. :)

Sigh...sorry peeps, I had tons of vids from that day, but its all gone now thanks to my phone's memory card that got corrupted last Wednesday - I think it was protesting being overworked what with the continuous twitpiccing and videos being recorded :P ....will just have to raid Iz's trove of vids now :( boo hoo!.

Here are shots of them in studio (finally, after lots of wait and rehearsal time out in the hallway) getting directions from the Director. Love the lighting in the studio - it makes everyone look good!

At any one time, only 10 Idols are in the shot. 1 in the spotlight (with close ups) and the other 9 in the back providing atmosphere. This is because at this point in the competition (ie now), its Top 10 only. But because we didn't know who would make it to the Top 10, every one of the Top 13 would be filmed.

Tedious, but so much fun! I can't wait to see the trailer!

More pics to come. In the meantime, check out my fave pic of the lot (below) - Malaque looking a lot like Michael Jackson's youngest child Blanket (a grown-up version). Its the hair la! LOL!

    Hrm, Sezairi-Faizal...its a possibility. But not so clear cut - I'm thinking Airi's not getting the votes yet, and I have a feeling because of the way Farhan's exit was announced (it was down to him and Airi), its possible that Farhan's fans may transfer their votes to Faizal instead of Airi. I dunno. Heck them conspiracy theories - lets see what happens in MJ Week. Hope everyone BRINGS IT!


  3. exactly! and i hope people see that!

  4. hah? people are blaming sezairi for farhan's exit? that has to be the funniest thing I've heard in days...

  5. my sentiments exactly, but apparently there's a ridiculous buzz goin' on in independent forums that goes something like that! crazy rite?
