MTV Sessions is a brand new television series(on MTV Asia) for artistes to showcase their skills in an intimate studio environment. Filmed live in front of a studio audience, music fans will be introduced to fresh young talents and get to know a different side of their favourite artistes, through live performances and up-close Q&A sessions.
Vanness Wu(吴建豪) is the first artist to debut on the new MTV Sessions, held on December 14, 2011 at Resorts World Sentosa's Waterfront Studio. I WAS THERE!
And I followed instruction:
So did everyone who started pulling out their mobiles to tweet and ask Vanness intimate questions like "Which chipmunk will you be in the movie, Alvin and the chipmunks?"
Vanness replied was Theodore because he loves to eat just like the chipmunk. Thanks for sharing so much with us that night, Vanness!
A personal comment with no offense:
I felt that the audience took too long to warm up, that includes me. We were too.. safe to the extent we were... stiff and boring. No one was going ga-ga over Vanness, so I didn't dare to be siao char boh among such a quiet crowd, especially when I standing right at the back. The singer was trying his best to amuse and loosen us up with a lighten spirit yet no one really seem to show that he/she cared.
All of us have a role to play.
As supporters, the least we can do is to be REALLY spontaneous. Even if we're shy, we can always smile, clap or even wave a 'hi' to show that we care that's why we come to watch a show. I'm certain that's what all performers really look forward to see and feel appreciated for. Also, performers on stage will feel more relax. In return, he/she can perform better. Let down your hair and enjoy!
It wasn't until the encore session that everyone began screaming and swaying their hands along with Vanness' singing. I can tell that then, he was so excited and sang with so much passion he'd wanted to stay if time allowed.
Too late; The recording session was over.
Nonetheless, I was glad that we finally decided to show our utmost support by initiate screams & applause for him JUST before he ended the session with us; fond memories to bring home and be looking forward to come again(I hope).
