World Idol for Taufik?

Some after thoughts update - I found this while Googling the net, and thought it worth updating right now!

December 3rd, 2004:

Taufik completes the list for this year. Our congratulations to Taufik Batisah who became the first Singapore Idol on December 1st. During the series there were three million votes cast with more than one million earlier in the week for the final. Almost two million viewers tuned in to watch Taufik and Sly wait for the announcement on Wednesday with around eight thousand people in the Singapore Indoor Stadium watching on.

There was controversy at the press conference just after the final show. Sly was signed to BMG then rather than a few days later and the network indicated that they believe that there will be no World Idol 2 contest which is why some voted for Taufik. Fremantle Media Asia was asked by the network about a World Idol 2 contest but have not confirmed one, leaving some fans disappointed. It should be noted that this does not mean that there will not be one next year. So Taufik may still have a chance to compete on the world stage with other Idols. Rumour has it that the network is also talking about an Australasian contest that would invite Taufik, Ben, Casey, Jac and others in January or February.

Yeah the official website doesn't actually say anything about not having a World Idol, they're probably just working out the kinks cos they mentioned that they WANT to give the new Idols a platform so I think there is a good chance they will have World Idol 2 :D:D
