Now we have another reason to watch American idol 7. Ramiele Malubay, 20 from Miramar, FL has made it to the top 24. She wants to be the first Asian American Idol, following the tradition of contestant Jasmine Trias who came in third in season 3. They both happen to be Filipino so lets show our support to our fellow Asian sister.
I have to say this is probably one of the better ones. The show premieres on Thursday, February 7 on MTV, but you can still catch the live casting show on repeat. The show takes groups from 4 regions, the East Coast (New York), South (Atlanta), Mid-West, and West Coast (LA). You definitely notice the different styles from the groups in each region. There are two Asian groups from LA, Kaba Modern and Jabbawockeez. In my opinion, these are the two best teams. You have to see their routine. It's sick. You can see them on youtube. Click here for Kaba Modern clip and Jabbawockeez clip.
One thing you might find interesting is that one of the members on Kaba Modern, Mike Song, is the kid you see in this Kollaboration freestyle dance battle video clip that made David Elsewhere famous.
Before AZN TV fades away, they have a reality modeling show for Vietnamese women. Here is the synopsis:
30 Vietnamese women from the United States and Canada were selected to be trained as professional models with the winner landing a cover on Nha magazine and $10,000 in grand prizes. Sequestered in a hotel for 2 weeks, the aspiring models were carefully coached in their professionalism, attitudes, responsibilities, rigors, and occasional disadvantages of the glamour industry.

MTV K will be the first music and pop-culture destination for young Korean-Americans. The channel will import the hottest and latest superstars from Korea -- artists like BoA, Rain, and Se7en -- and introduce new and emerging Korean-American artists making noise of their own. Finally, Korean and Korean-Americans artists alike will have their own platform in the U.S.!
We want you to be a part of this historic movement by choosing the very first video to be played on MTV K! Watch the videos below and vote for your favorite. The clip with the most votes will go down in history as the video that kicked off this Korean-American revolution.
The winner will be announced June 27 here and on MTV K.
