Part 5: The People Speak
Our sampling of the many KLKomments surrounding Dhool in the blogosphere. Taking them objectively is entirely optional..
They Didnt like:
Farzana - "....The worst part of the whole thing is.THEY GOT SECOND.why do the best always get SECOND.i don't know why.But NUS Vidiyal won it all.they got obviously because of the voting.atleast thats what i think.they had and edge over acidhouz because of their popularity.damn the voting.ACIDHOUZ WAS THE OBVIOUS BEST AT THE FINALE..."
Nasreena - "..Last sun dhool competition rock'd except for the results.... i so want'd a 1-2 finish for Acid Houz and Diversity... sadly.. the judges and the vot'n screwed up... I personally thk its so dumb to hav voting in talent show... i mean. wat happens if a team is freak'n lousy n they get to win thanx to jus the sms votes?! its so freakin unfair!!! - arghhh!! nvm.... done is done...."
Salz - "...Diversity & Acid Hauz did amazingly but NUS won. They so do not deserve it!Even the article today quoted the judges sayin tt the public vote helped them win the title but the former 2 were much better.That might catch NUS full on their face. Aikx!..."
Malini - "..Okie.. this is a post on the Dhool 2007 competition which took place yesterday.. and I am super duper pissed off with the result..A team from NUS known as NUS Vidiyal won the damn competition.. wth!.. how can they ever win it?.. Just because they are from NUS doesnt mean a FUCK!.. naturally all these Indians have a perception... that Indian kids from NUS are more 'decent' than the other Indian kids who make it to Polys or ITEs.. and for goodness sake.. that doesnt mean a SHIT!.. and btw.. I do HATE Indians from NUS..."
Sutha - "...The truth: I have nothing against them. No.1 university in Singapore. Nice school. Not everyone have the chance to study there.The fact: pls give chances to the rest of the schools in sg. NUS is not the only one. In singing competition, dance competition, whatever s***t competition they participate , they are always choose as no.1. I just wonder whether the media has sign up some sort of agreement with them in terms of winning..."
Poonamm - "...yes we voted obsessively, many times at that. but if you are in to win a competition and you are supporting a team that you hope to have win the competition wasnt tt part of the process of supporting?..."
"...anyway the dancers are well aware tt on the finals they were not the best group there. but hey their supporters ensured they got the victory. n biased comment insert-- they worked their bloody asses off... n dared to be different.. they knew the dance they were doing was a risk.. it was unchartered territory for them n it was a risk they were willing to take for the finals. so for tt i m happy they won...."
Miss Exothika - "...I was mesmerized by NUS Vidiyal’s performance in the 1st round. However, I think Diversity took over the lead in the 2nd round. NUS deserved that Victory. I think there was something going on between AcidHouz and Veshnu (the judge). I didn’t fancy their performance in any way yet the dude was praising them for nothing. My personal favourites for last night were NUS Vidiyal & Diversity..."
They Dont Give A Damn:
Dev - "... and as usual NUS won!!! Though they were good that's not the reason they always win...it seems that the brand name NUS sells... their dance were very different from the others... their dance were all contemporary fusion and the TriDX was mainly hip hop and they were really good... and acid house was really the house favourite... however my eyes were glued to diversity... they should have called themseves diverSexy..."
Tiagesh - "...Look, i'm not an incredibly big fan of NUS. Be it Puyal , Vidyal, or any other vaal that may be. I do think there is a slight bias towards NUS. I remember this program which was some glorified school competition which had a really shitty dance, but they still got in. Of course, they somehow bucked up, danced really well for the semi finals and made it to a credible fourth placing. Or was it, 3rd? Like i said, not a big fanNow Vidiyal arent too bad. They did really well for the quarters and semis and i think probably deserve to be up there with the best.I couldn't watch the final, but based on their previous performances , i'm not surprised. I also understand you're required sychophantic sms freaks to win as well, but hey whose bothering..."
Karthik - "...Talks of Kalaichelvan started fillin' the room. I guess rumours will always be rumours, till there's substantial proof, that Mr Dhil Dhil (whom I find terribly irritating) was pullin the strings for NUS to win, in this case, Vidiyal.However, based on the comments of many who watched the show, I gather that Houz Houz and Diversity seemed much likelier winners. I guess it is only fair, to point fingers at the judges then, rather than to point towards Vidiyal. Dun get me wrong here, I am no Vidiyal supporter, and no sms from my phone was a vote for them, or any other group for the matter. Whatever the outcome, as the title suggests, life must go on. To Diversity and Houz Houz, I guess you guys did your best. To Vidiyal, congrats...
There you have it. Coming right up, Part 6: Interview with a Vidiyalite.
