Challenger #4 : Dan Thompson

summerr's note:
Hi all, this is a re-posting of Dan Thompson's original profile for when he appeared on OMG's Ep 3. An updated profile will be posted later today.
xoxo, s.

The Entertainer From Down Under
When I first saw Dan Thompson, the first word that came to mind was 'debonair'. Dressed in a tux and bow tie, the guy looked dapper. But when I got to interview him, he was really open and easy to talk to. Charming yet laid-back, Dan's got a fair bit of performing experience under his belt. Tonight he'll be crooning his way to hopefully, a spot on the podium.

Why did you join OMG!?
I joined the show for the exposure. For years and years, I've seen that the people who get on tv are the ones who get the jobs. Its not that they are way better than other talent out there, its just that they got the tv exposure. I know how it works and it opens doors. I'm actually doing quite well - I have my own business, I perform for events, I teach and even manage other artistes. Its actually quite risky doing this (being on the show). I mean, financially I'm doing well, its just that I want to take my work to the next level.

What is your talent?
I do impersonations, like MJ's dance moves. I dance - popping (or rap-dancing as they called it back in my day), I tap dance and I sing.

How long have you been performing?
Since I was 7? I was the youngest member of the Sunshine Singers. We performed in shopping centres. I got $50. And I thought, if I could buy any toy I wanted just by singing and dancing, this is a pretty good idea. When I got my $50, the first thing I bought was a Space Lego Set!

Where are you from originally?
I was born in Sydney, but I lived mostly in various parts of Queensland, like the Gold Coast and Brisbane. I first came to Singapore back in 1993 with Disney. We were doing a show at The Raffles, and I was a singer/compere/host with them. I really liked Singapore, so when I was invited back in 2003 to do a corporate event, I was more than happy to come back. I've been going back and forth ever since for performances and events.

What would you do with the $50k if you won?
First I have to say, I don't actually believe I'm gonna get to the end and win the prize money. But if I did, first up, I would give $10k to my competitor, if they were nice to me. I'd then give $20k to my mum, and the rest would go to charity. Specifically the vegetarian society and SPCA, I'm a big animal lover.

Catch Dan's smooth crooner performance on Episode 3 of One Moment Of Glory TONIGHT! 8pm, only on Channel 5!
Have you got a hidden talent that everyone keeps telling you you should reveal? Why not do it on the show? It could change your life - plus you could be $50,000 richer! Simply email because producers want YOU!

  17. Label season once again! I do them in word. The original was simple
    ... A couple of years ago. Now that I have actually made removals,
    it appears I can not just put in one more name & address in the deleted
    (blank) area.
    Whether I utilize tab, space, or ctrl tab, the arrow visits the next label position.

    Not at the top line, to begin with a label. Why is that? Just what's the solution? What am I doing wrong? I considered simply developing another tag template. But that appears a lot of do business vs a basic update.
    Thanx anyone ...:).
