Indonesian Idol

Season 1 (2004)

Delon Thamrin

Stanislaus Alexander Liauw Delon Thamrin on May 20 1978 in Jakarta, Indonesia) is a Chinese Indonesian singer and runner-up in the hit reality series Indonesian Idol. Delon, the youngest of three boys, grew up in a neighborhood of Mangga Besar, a highly-populated district in Jakarta which is identified primarily with commerce and trading activities and not with art, with the exception of night shows at some hotels.
Prior to Indonesian Idol, Delon never had formal music training. His first encounter with music was when he joined a choir in his parish, the St. Petrus and Paulus Church. Delon's classical tenor voice made him one of leading soloists of this choir.
He got his degree in English from the Saint Mary Academy of Foreign Language. After his father died in 2001, he was compelled to work laboriously to help finance his family. During this period, he became a door-to-door salesman selling spring-bed and plastic ware. Later on his singing ability opened the door for him to be a wedding singer and an emcee—a not-so-fabulous start since the gig did not pay enough. At the time he entered the Indonesian Idol contest, Delon was a non-managerial employee in a Japanese import-export company. He had to quit the job so he can follow his dream to become a singer.
His participation in the Indonesian Idol became a controversy, as he split the Indonesian public into two groups, those who loved him and those who disliked him. In fact, it was thought that he would win with sympathy votes after one of the judges behaved towards him in a manner similar to that of Simon Cowell, when the judge apparently told Delon that the reason he was in the competition was because of his looks. Delon said that the remark hurt him very much and caused him to become depressed. But Indonesians saw that he tried to give a sincere smile to answer this comment and that he tried to improve his performance thereafter.
This controversy made him even more famous, causing him to become a singing heart-throb, especially among teenage girls. His loyal fans are called "Deloners," and they have even developed a club which consists of Delon’s fans from all over Indonesia. A turning point for the young singer who went from a church choir boy and wedding singer to Indonesian Idol runner-up, and from a salesman to a rising star, Delon is now almost an icon for Indonesian youth culture.
Delon's first debut after Indonesian Idol took place when he got the chance for the opening act for Blue Concert in Jakarta in October 2004, followed by the Air Supply concert in December 2004. His first album, called Bahagiaku (My Joyfulness), sold more than 300,000 copies in just under three months. Recently, Delon was voted as MTV's "Most Favourite Male" 2005. Delon just finished recording a song ("Kokoro No Tomo") with Mayumi Itsuwa in Japan and has already moved to wowing audiences behind the screen, featuring in several branded advertisements and releasing his first movie, Vina Bilang Cinta, a box office rave in Indonesia.
