Farhan didn't win

Did anyone of you catch Akademi Fantasia 4 finals last saturday?

This was the first time I watched the entire show this season.

As I had predicted before, Farhan didn't win even though she was the most talented among the lot. She was amazing with her version of Spain by Al Jarreau from the album This Time (1980). If she comes out with an album, I will definitely buy it.



One thing I noticed was that a lot of the AF students were giving the "sign". And Lotter was the guy doing it most of the time. Check below if you don't believe me (all pictures from the Astro website).






The lyrics for Spain.

Yesterday
Just a photograph of yesterday
and all it's edges folded
and the corners faded sepia brown
and yet it's all I have of our past love
a post script to it's ending

Brighter days
I can see such brighter days
when every song we sang is sung again
and now we know
we know this time it's for good
and we're lovers once again
and you're near me

I can remember the rain in december
the leaves of brown on the ground
in Spain I did love and adore you
the nights filled with joy were our yesterdays
and tomorrow will bring you near me

I can recall my desire
every reverie is on fire and I get a picture of all our yesterdays
yes today, I can say
I get a kick every time they play that spain again

I can remember the rain in december
the leaves of brown on the ground
Our love was a spanish fiesta
the bright lights and sounds were our joy each day
and the nights were the heat of yearning

I can recall my desire every reverie
is on fire and I get a picture of all our yesterdays
yes today, I can say
I get a kick every time I see you gaze at me
I see moments of history
your eyes meet mine and they dance to the melody
and we live again as if dreaming

the sound of our hearts beat like castanets
and forever we'll know their meaning
I can recall my desire every reverie is on fire
and I get a picture of all our yesterdays
yes, today, I can say
I get a kick every time I see you gaze at me

(music solo)

You gaze at me
I see moments of history
your eyes meet mine
and they dance to the melody
and we live again as if dreaming

the sound of our hearts beat like castenets
and forever we'll know their meaning

I can recall my desire
every reverie is on fire
and I get a picture of all our yesterdays
yes today I can say
I get a kick every time I see you gaze at me

be do de
(scat solo)

You gaze at me
I see moments of history
your eyes meet mine and they dance to the melody
and we live again as if dreaming

the sound of our hearts beat like castanets
and forever we'll know their meaning
I can remember the rain in december
the leaves of brown tumbling down

in spain I did love and adore you
the nights filled with joy were our yesterdays
and tomorrow will bring you near me

I can recall my desire every reverie is on fire
and I get a picture of all our yesterdays
yes today I can say
I get a kick every time you sing that spain

whoa, whoa, oh yeah

I only managed to catch the 2nd part. Farhan is good but her expression probably spoils it. There is no expression! Anyway, the first judge said it all, semua pengundi perempuan mungkin jeles dengan Farhan...Women always vote for men. I was pining for Lotter to win 'cos his parents look so humble! But at least he got a car, yay! Faizal voice is nothing special.

I agree regarding her facial expression or lack thereof. A friend commented that she has a "wooden face".

I didnt watch the final.. i dont have astro..thanks for the video... I guess i wouldnt really care of her 'wooden face'..but her voice is DA BOMB - as moreover i love jazz and rnb. I guess i didnt make any initiative to watch AF final since the last two seasons as ..the result is sooooooo predictable..
