Asian Idol ? Mike, Indonesian Idol, Must Put High Effort On It !


Asian Idol is an upcoming version of the singing competition format, Pop Idol, featuring winners of idol competitions from six Asian countries consisting of India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, and Vietnam. The winner will be awarded an international recording contract and a free trip around the world to watch international Idol shows.

It is set to be held on December 15 to 16, 2007 in Jakarta, Indonesia. Indonesia's largest TV station, RCTI (which also hosts Indonesian Idol), will be the main TV station with the competition being broadcast live in the participating countries although problems with time zone difference are being discussed.
It will be hosted by Amelia Natasha and Daniel Mananta, both from Indonesian Idol.
Each participating country will have its own system of determining its representative.

As a kickoff to Asian Idol, all six contestants will be introduced through an Idol Showcase presentation on December 8, 2007. Meanwhile, fans of each contestant will be able to choose the song they want their Idol to perform before the Asian Idol performance show. The Idols will perform two songs each--one in English and another in their native language.

In addition to the coverage of Asian Idol, RCTI will run a series of features called Asian Idol Extra between late November to mid-December 2007.
Every competing country will send a judge to serve as the contestants' critics, but unlike in usual Idol shows only three judges will comment on each performer due to time constraints.

Special guests in the program include Australian Idol winner Guy Sebastian and Indian Idol judge Alisha Chinai.

Here are the contestants in Asian Idol.
