    Failure to follow these criterias will result in null vote from you.

    So HERE THEY ARE!


    At Least There's Still You -> BGM1NO1 Originally sung by Sandy Lam. The lyrics of this song are very sweet. Dedicated to my sweetie.

    Goodbye Firefly -> BGM1NO2 : In the face of past winning giants, a tiny firefly sang for Spcnet Idol3 final, 'if at this stage you will not kiss me, then at least recognize me... behold, my shining stubborness, do not forget me...'

    Kian -> BGM1NO3

    This is again a Malay ballad song. If I'm having a good mood I will post the english translation of the lyric. A very sad song about heartbroken and failed relationships. I chose this song as I can relate to it LOL. This is another of my f**k-up recording as usual. Very high note song and I sang it too fast at some places. Anyway, the submission is only a formality, we know already who the winner i

    Success -> BGM1NO4
    It's Sheng Li Shuang Shou Chuang - "Success is Created with Two Hands" by Ye Zhen Tang

    Wow. This is hard to vote.

    My first vote would have gone to #1 and it was marvelously done. Thanks for singing the song, you know who you are.

    But I think #4 got my vote because I know #1 will garner a lot of votes from people.

    BTW, #4, this song was used in a TV drama before right? You almost sound as good as the original singer of this song. I like this song too. I think this was a good song choice for you too.

    wow everyone is a potential winner here

    after tough narrowing down i got #1 and #4.

    but then #3 came back in the picture after i heard it again.

    so i used a hat to draw, but cant find a hat. so i listened to it all one more time and narrowed it down to #3 and #4.

    but then the more i listen, the more i like #1.

    so i took a shower and came back and #2 started sounding good.



    what to do, what to do!!!!

    so i try to vote blindly with my eyes close and just clicking with my mouse but i clicked the home button and went back to the yahoo page

    i came back and listen to it all 1 more time and finally eliminated 2 and 3 regretfully.

    #1 or #4?!?!?! 1 or 4, 1 or 4, 1 or 4!!!?!?!?!?!?!?

    4 DING DING DING!!!!

    but seriously (underline with HUGE emphasis), everyone here is a winner and all deserves a hand of applause

    My vote goes to no 1, though no 2 wins my heart too. No. 4 has a powerful voice but I care about the feel of a song

    Keep up the good works you guys!

    BTW, are we not allowed to ask who sang the tunee?

    I voted for #4 because hearing someone sing that song cracked me up.

    Everybody else did a good job too.

    Posting my thoughts as i'm listening to the music.

    BGM1NO1- This is really good- good voice. As the song was ending, i was hoping to listen to more. If this is in the karaoke, i would have stood up to clap. Well done.

    BGM1NO2- There's a ridiculous faye wong on youtube with feathers on her head with this song. So i put both song together and the only big difference that i would like to convey to the participant is the participant's vocal out- crowded the background music, robbing it of a better mark. Faye's youtube clip http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMY7rxBlfMY

    BGM1NO3- Lots of passion there especially at 1.32. and also score highly for its finish. An evenly paced start would have helped to score better- you have some moments of inconsistency there. Youtube of Kian- Mawi http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yb7It...eature=related

    BGM1NO4 I know this song as the hokkien version and didn't know that the cantonese version existed as well. Needs controlled crescendo to show passion better.

    I apologize to participants for using youtube's videos for comparison. I tend to only hear classical music and therefore don't know the source material well.

    Well done everyone, for entering; give yourselves around of applause. It's pretty cool to hear someone sing a female version of At least I still Have you. Including, the entree song:Success; not too bad my hokkien isn't all that great, thanx for given your all.

    Except for one song, I know who did which entry. I think most people know too.

    The one that I don't know was in the last idol too, but I didn't find out who it was.

    Would have been an interesting final if warlock hadn't been unlucky to have a problem with his first round song. It probably would have come down to a close battle between him and last year's runner up again.

    That was a hard one with so little to choose between the songs, then it got narrowed down to #1 and #4. In the end my vote went to 1#.
    Have you learned to love one another?

    Sorry no, except some swear words (Cantonese) learned from early Stephen Chow movies LOL (j/k), my Chinese language is extremely limited. I already enroll in a Mandarin class for 3 months, but that's just it, only for survival when traveling in China. I can't stand all the 4 tones, so hard to pronounce correctly.

    Anyway I prefer Cantonese more. If you have these things, I can try it

    - The romanise Cantonese lyric
    - The original song
    - The minus one

    Sugar, did you want to revise your post and change 7th of Jan. to 7th of Feb?
    How come most 江湖 (jiāngh) wanderers never worry about money? I wonder how a 大俠 (dxi) make a living...does meddling in people's business and righting wrongs pay well?
