Bye Bye David :(

OMG's First Solo Elimination - David Lin
Somehow, during the Survival Rounds, when someone got eliminated from the show, it didn't feel as brutal. Tonight, it felt really brutal. Some more the spotlight for the eliminated person was red versus the green spots on the other two who were safe. Fwah - brutal k!

Ok, C-Murda's exit was painful for many, but by and large, I guess because a few people were sent packing every week, it didn't seem so brutal. Tonight, David Lin was the only one going home, and to do it at the start of the show, as opposed to the end of the show, just made it all the more painful to watch - he would have prepared all week to perform, but wouldn't get to at all. Ouch.

Then again, its David. He's chill. So we should chill too. Thats why we love David, he's just chill. Check out the exit video I recorded with him after he left the stage.

David was in the bottom 3 based on Judges' ranking last week. Fair enough that his vocals weren't stellar last week, totally overwhelmed by Jack & Rai and their band. But I had thought his fans would have voted enough to keep him safe. Perhaps everyone thought the same and didn't pick up the phone to vote. That's what happened to Jeassea Thyidor from Idol 1. Everyone thought she was so good and pretty that everyone else would vote for her, so people concentrated on 'saving' the ones perceived to be less popular. And lo and behold, poor Jeassea, arguably the best vocals on the show at that time, was sent home.

So next week, folks, if you support someone, don't get complacent. Put your vote in, even if its just one, every single vote counts!

As for David, we wish you all the best in whatever you decide to do after this - don't be a stranger and keep at your music, the OMG family will always be behind you! Ganbatte!

Next week's theme is 'My Singapore Dream'. Like this week, the title is open to interpretation, so it need not necessarily be patriotic songs or flag bearing routines. I can't wait to see what the Contenders will come up with next - I thoroughly enjoyed tonight's show, quite a few of them took me by surprise. More in my review tomorrow. Plus! There's guest judge Debbie Gibson to look forward to! Woooooot!

xoxo, s.

ps. We got some feedback from the audience and viewers that David should have been given a chance to sing one more time. That would have been a nice touch. But so far on the show, contestants who exit the show haven't been given an exit performance. Also, tonight's show was just an hour - I doubt producers could have fit him into that hour - it was quite chop chop already. Next episode maybe? 

What do you think?  Should those getting eliminated be given a chance to sing/perform one last time?


  1. YES! TOTALLY. All the eliminated contenders should always be given a last chance to perform! It's their last time to enjoy the stage, why not give it to them.

    This show is so awesome that it should last more than an hour!

  2. yeah i think that they should be given the last opportunity before they got the 'cut'. it's like they prepared so hard for that, and yet they can't show it to the rest of Singapore.. so it's kinda unfair to them.

    lastly, david lin's awesome but i really didnt know how he was going to fit into th theme of 'light up my fire, baby'. his voice is more suited to slower and emotional songs, not rock or hard metal songs.

    anyways, good luck david, you did your best and that's what is needed. (: have fun always, and keep singing yeah?

  3. even if there are two going off next week, its still brutal..grown to like all of them..sigh cannot imagine what it will be like without them..dessert roses, jill, luminiq crew, rythm and moves, vertical dancers and not forgetting danny..

    still brutal.. but at this stgae all of them are winners..but still if we want to see our favs in the finals..need to keep voting..

  4. Yeah, endless applause for all contenders!! Well done! It is such a huge struggle to compete every week. I think they should be given the last opportunity to perform so that their supporters will not come disappointed too. Can you feel how David's supporters feel? I do. And I hope I won't be the next one having to drop tears for anyone. One MORE Moment of Glory for them, they deserve it. Leave the stage with glory!

  5. Please give these guys who have entertained us for so many weeks at least the last chance to perform and have a "glory exit".

    Hats off to those whom have been around since day 1(Desert Roses, Danny Koh, Luminiq, of course David too). It must have been really difficult to come out with so many different routines for so many weeks! *applause*

    No time? Too chop chop for the producers? Give up the "mystery"(like oh wow!?) contender slot for these guys who have put in so much effort another chance for tv time. They deserve it way much more than these whatsoever new contenders who breeze their way in to the elimination rounds. Just my 2 cents. :)

  6. david lin should have been given the chance to perform something at the end or at least his song he prepared. He probably prepared it for the whole week and when he went to the show, he got eliminated :( I think it's be nice to let them perform just once more, their last stage of "glory" lol
    **C-Murda should come back! He's so awesome! :D

  7. Yes, true that they have contenders have not been given a chance to perform after being eliminated, but in the survival rounds, they already performed just before they got eliminated. So you go there prepared and have a chance to perform. Even though I'm not a fan of David, I do think that coming into the elimination rounds, they should be given a chance to perform, like at the end or something.

  8. C-Murda??? Gone long ago rite? He's nice but when comes to popping. He's not quite good leh? Why so many people wants him to be back? I think the best one is Jumping Jewels leh. Even John the singing also good. But so far those who packed up and go home are good. The weak ones are C-Murda, the king and doggy leh.

  9. @omgrock.. you must be a fan of the jumping jewels. they may have been gone early in the competition, but to stay in it..they will have to come out with more stunts. have you seen the way the taiwanese do skipping?? if jumping jewels can bring that level into OMG.. they may be still in..

    Its not right for us to say who is better than who, do not tell me that the seven who are standing there right now are not? (minus the new challenger)

  10. @girlgirl. I agree if what u said. But can't stand C murda fan for always commenting and bring down other contender complaining abt judgesjust to proof their C murda is good. Don't u think so?
