Is Ken Lim addicted to judging

Is Ken Lim addicted to judging
The Final 1 judge Ken Lim (centre) with the runner-up Shaun Jansen (first from left) and winner Farisha Ishak (first from right).

I had expected Shaun Jansen to win, simply because he's a guy and the winners of four previous singing competitions on Channel 5 were all guys.

Wait a minute, you say.

Four? But there were only three seasons of Singapore Idol. The winners were Taufik Batisah, Hady Mirza and a third guy whose name I had to look up. (It's Sezairi Sezali.)

So what's this fourth competition I'm talking about?

Remember something called Live The Dream?

Probably not, since the ratings for the 2007 Singapore Idol knock-off were so horrifyingly low that a former MediaCorp colleague working on the show called it Live The Nightmare.

Anyway, the winner was also a guy.

I do remember his name because it sounds like the team manager who just quit the Johor Darul Takzim football team but it's actually the name of a handbag - Fendi.
