It's here again, Singapore Idol 2006. It was Taufik Batisah then, but who will it be now? There have been a few changes from Singapore Idol 2005 but the most obvious one faced by many is that there no longer exist a hardcopy application form. All hopefuls must apply online via their website.
Well, there was this applicant who wanted a shot at the competition. But when I looked at Joan's (name has been changed to protect the actual person) application form...I won't elaborate further, I will let you see for yourself.
Joan's application form:
FULL NAME: Joan Wong (changed to protect the person)
NRIC/Passport No.: S1234567Z (changed to protect the person)
ADDRESS: My House
NATIONALITY: Singaporean Citizen
ARE YOU A SINGAPORE PR?: NO
POSTAL CODE: 455664 (changed to protect the person)
DATE OF BIRTH: 05 JAN 1996
Contact NO.: 45645645 (changed to protect the person)

WHO ARE YOUR IDOLS?
So far I don't have any. I would like to try to be one.
HOW WELL CAN YOU SING?
Quite good. My mum and dad says that I have a good voice :P
WHY SHOULD WE PICK YOU?
Because I have a good voice? Also, I am 10, so I guess the recording industry will want to have me rather than someone older.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO TAKE PART IN THIS COMPETITION? (CITE A SPECIFIC EXAMPLE)
My friend who laughed at my voice. Well, there was once when this girl that I hate laughed at me, saying that my voice sounds like a car that has broken down. Well, I wanted to prove her wrong and told her that I will show her how good my voice is and there's no better way other than to join Singapore idol
HAVE YOU HAD ANY EXPERIENCE IN THE ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY SUCH AS PERFORMING, HOSTING, PARTICIPATING OR ACTING IN EVENTS, IN PUBS, IN CLUBS, IN LOCAL FILM PRODUCTIONS (STUDENT, AMATEUR OR PROFESSIONAL PRODUCTIONS) ETC.?
No. Well, I am in choir. So I guess you could say that I sang in front of a panel of qualified judges in the SYF (Singapore Youth Festival). We got a Gold Medal in the end and also ended up as the top five choirs for our primary school.
HAVE YOU TAKEN PART IN ANY TALENT-BASED COMPETITIONS (DRAMA, HOSTING, SINGING, DANCING) IN THE PAST 2 YEARS? IF SO, PLEASE PROVIDE FURTHER DETAILS (TITLE, YEAR, DURATION, ROLE, CHANNEL, STAGE REACHED [FINAL 30, FINAL 10 ETC.])
Just like what I have said above. I took part in the choir's SYF and ended up with a Gold Medal and top five position.
DID YOU PARTICIPATE IN THE FIRST SEASON OF SINGAPORE IDOL IN 2004? IF SO, PLEASE PROVIDE FURTHER DETAILS (HOW FAR INTO THE COMPETITION DID YOU PROCEED?)
I did, but admission won't let me try, saying that I was too young. I just reached the registration part of the whole competition.
WHAT’S YOUR PROUDEST ACHIEVEMENT TO DATE?
The SYF event (Gold Medal and Top Five position) and my mum and dad saying that I have a good voice.
DESCRIBE YOURSELF IN TEN WORDS:
I have a good voice, mum and dad said so.
NUMBER THE FOLLOWING IN ORDER OF YOUR ABILITY. (START WITH 1 FOR BEST – DOWN TO 4 FOR WORST)
Singing - 1
Song writing/Playing - 2
Dancing - 4
Acting - 3
This is Joan's application. Through the advice of mum and dad, she finally decided not to submit her application form.
