SINGAPORE: 22—year—old Sezairi Sezali has won the third edition of Singapore Idol. But his win garnered some mixed reactions.

"I’m very happy and proud, and this drink is for you, Sezairi. All the hard work and effort he went through — thank God," said Rubiah Chayan and Sezali Suliman, parents of Sezairi.

The judges said it has been a fair competition.

"Sezairi did a better performance tonight. And to be fair to him, he showed a lot more. He was a lot more convincing than Sylvia," said Ken Lim, Singapore Idol 2009 Judge.

But Sylvia’s supporters were in shock, and within 24 hours, disgruntled fans had voiced their displeasure on the online platform.

Mr Lim said: "Every competition has got its plus points — its advantages and disadvantages. What is important here is that we have to support who the public has chosen as their idol".

The winner is looking ahead and gearing up for his music career. Sezairi has signed with Universal Music Singapore, and he said his album will be out by April or May 2010.

"My musical direction will probably be very acid jazz, very soul. It is a mix of Jamiroquai, John Mayer. Expect to hear a lot of live instruments, expect to hear a lot of guitar as well," Sezairi said.

On asking whether this is enough to set him apart from the past two Singapore Idols — Taufik Batisah and Hady Mirza — Sezairi said all three idols have different singing styles and personalities which show in their music.

Sezairi said: "The three of us have distinctively very different styles, and we are completely very different people and we have really very different personalities as well.

"So if you see beyond that, and if you really take a listen and open your heart, your mind, and your ears, you will see the difference."
