OMG Guest Judge : Hossan Leong

Catch Judge Hossan! Special Appearance! One Night Only!
OMG! has got a real treat lined up for everyone next week. When a scheduling conflict arose, and Judge B couldn't make one of the recordings, producers cracked their heads for someone who could fill her shoes - after all, B had just been confirmed as a resident judge, we would need someone just as credible.

Lo and behold they invited the very experienced, very talented and might I say, rather flamboyant, Hossan Leong to keep the seat warm for that one night. Hossan is an actor, director, radio presenter, host, standup comedian, corporate trainer and motivational speaker (check him out on Twitter). Like FD, he's on a morning show (on Gold 90.5FM), so after Sunday night's taping, both had just 4 hours to get home and get to bed before they had to be back at MediaCorp to prep. I managed to catch up with Hossan just before taping began.

What do you think you'll bring to the judges table?
I bring a sense of style and flair to the table *big flashy smile*, well you know, somebody's gotta bring it! Coming from a theatre background, I guess I'm looking for enthuasiasm. I've seen it all before, so I'm just looking to be impressed.

What do you think of the show's format - the Survival Rounds?
I think its a great way to pit the contestants against one another. And choosing their own challengers, it lends an element of surprise to the whole thing for the people watching. Who will they pick and why, and how do they plan to challenge them.

What type of acts are you looking out for?
Singers and dancers. If you're a singer, what else can you bring to the table? You just sing. But for a dancer, I mean, look at shows like So You Think You Can Dance, the dancers on that show are amazing. There's just so many things you can do with your body, with your choreography.
















What do you think of the judging panel?
The line up of judges is a pretty varied group. I've been in theatre for over 15 years. Ping Hui is your Channel 8 stud, he's done so many variety shows, he's done a little of everything. Irene and FD are veterans. Our experience in the business is so varied, so we'll be able to offer a nice range of comments and hopefully constructive ones that will encourage them.

What type of acts do you think will be at an advantage or disadvantage?
Dancers have a good chance, for me if you're a real dancer or popper or whatever, it takes a lot of skill and talent to do it all in synchronicity. I mean, I can't do it! If you can show me you can move, make me laugh, I'll sit up and take notice.
Those at a disadvantage would be people who put on bland performances. Bland. No joie de vivre (love this term, it means 'joy for life or joy for living', and in this case, he probably 'enthusiasm for one's own performance').

(I asked him a few more questions after the show - don't worry, no spoilers!)
On a scale of 1-10, how tough was it to judge the contestants and come to a consensus with the other judges?
Judging - 8 (waah that's pretty tough!)
Coming to a consensus with the Judges - 1 EASY PEASY! (cheyyy, no big-bang-table-type rows or anything ah? so undrama!)

What kind of act would you personally have liked to see on the show?
I would have liked to see something that was out of the ordinary, like a lion tamer ... or an iron chef!!















Have you any hidden talents?
I can't mention it. Its definitely NOT for General Viewing ... call my personal number and I'll show you :) (bwahahahahhahahahhahahha!)

If you had to join a show like this, what would your talent be.
erm....play the piano upside down while reciting a mandarin poem, all this while shaving my legs.
O.O

Out of all the contestants you saw on your episode, which one did you connect with/feel for the most and why.
Danny... coz he didn't really do anything that episode except stand there and look cool. Very difficult to do that you know!
(Danny has immunity on this episode having won his challenge against Fatema the week before).

Thank you Hossan for a lovely interview - he is such a character - you have to watch the show to listen to his comments. Look out for his hilarious facial expressions and pretty interesting takes on the contestants' performance! Good job producers for finding someone big enough (actually he's quite petite) to fill Judge B's shoes.

Catch Judge Hossan *for one night only* on Episode 4 of One Moment of Glory this Wednesday at 8pm only on Channel 5.
Can't get enough of Hossan? Want to get in touch with him? Follow him on Twitter and check out this website.

xoxo, s.
