You've done it Singapore, you've chosen your Singapore Idol and its Sezairi Sezali. The Idol journey has come to an end for viewers, (and what an amazing journey it has been!) but its only just begun for Airi. He is now signed with music label Universal Music and will be a MediaCorp Artiste. And that gorgeous red Gibson he jokingly said would name 'Gurmit' (he's seriously considering naming it Gurmit now), is also now his to keep.
Hours after the win (and a pretty 'tough' press conference according to him), he still seemed a little shell-shocked and in disbelief. Check out this random vid of him - I caught him the minute he walked into his dressing room, with a ribena!
To my dearest Airi, you totally deserved it (both of you did, actually, but there can only be one), you worked hard and gave it your all last night and every performance hit its mark. The cheers and screams you heard were for you, and no, you are not dreaming, your song DID play on the radio today! Woot!
This is a reality, you ARE the Singapore Idol. :) I'm so proud of you Airi! Do us proud with an awesome album - 'Something Personal' has got to be on it!
Keep on that 'empire state of mind', and if you ever fall short, you know what/where to look to for strength k!
ps. Catch Singapore Idol Sezairi Sezali on Celebrate 2010 this New Year's Eve and the repeat of the Idol Grand Finals on Channel 5 this Saturday at 4pm.
