Carlsberg Diamond Idol 2012

I must have done a very very VERY good job (LOL!) for Carlsberg 'coz I was once again invited to blog for them. My last Carlsberg post was on "The Triple Launch Party" which is currently sitting handsomely as one of the most popular post in this blog of mine.  
This time round, I'm being joined by not only Tom (Rungitom), but other bloggers as well:

Organised on July 20, at Firefly bar & grill, a press conference the event was & it being named "Carlsberg Diamond Idol 2012", hence a singing contest it shall be.  Some facts about the contest:
