    my kids, music, Mika-gigs.
  1. #CasaMika 2 - 2017

    Actually I'd prefer it fully in Italian. I never liked the song, actually there were times when I absolutely hated it, because it was played on the radio far too often. But with Mika's voice and the different language, it sounds so different from the original that I could get used to it. Just wondering, did the Italian version of the song already exist by the original artist or was it Mika and his co-writers who wrote the Italian text for it?
  2. Kumazzz posted a few short videos above. Or do you mean a video of his complete speech?
  3. I suppose they weren't invited by Mika but paid to be there, same way I came to attend the Rose d'Or Awards. Anyway I wasn't at this gala, but I'm sure @Gabry74 can answer your question.

    I don't know if that's true for the general TV audience, at least on German TV some casting shows or reality TV last 3 hours or longer, and people watch them. But maybe that's only possible because it's TV shows for which you don't need to use your brain. Anyway, personally I prefer shorter shows these days, 8 x 1,5 hours Casa Mika would suit me more than 4 x 3 hours. I hardly watch TV anymore and if I do, not for 3 hours in a row.

    So, did the 2nd show get more viewers than the first? I loved it, with the Disney songs and Pick up off the floor. Sadly I couldn't watch the 2nd half of the show, as the stream kept freezing. I hope I'll soon find time to watch the replay.
  6. Mika's collaboration with Pilot?

    I don't know much about pen brands... is it a brand that can only be bought in France, or is it international? So, after sunglasses and watches it's pens now... at least that's something I'd actually use. (The sunglasses weren't my style and I can't wear Swatch watches on a daily basis because they're too big and too loud...)
  7. Ah, so all places are given away by Mika's Facebook for this last recording, 300 for the audience and 100 for the waiting list - right? I wish I could go again, but can't make it during the week, as hubby is working and someone needs to take care of the kids... Anyway I hope many MFCers can attend the last recording, I'm sure it'll be special.

    @Anditwassummer I haven't checked the Italian Wikipedia page, but I agree with you that it's a good way of promoting the show if they put enough info on there. I don't think @dcdeb has time for updating it, but maybe she can mention it to Mika's team - surely there's someone at Rai2 or Mika's Italian Management who can take care of it. Although I guess for now maybe it'd be better if some Italian fan added some info, because I'm sure Mika's team won't manage it in time before Casa Mika 2 is over.
  9. #CasaMika 2 - 2017

    Ah, ok, thanks. I don't know most of the guests in his show, so I'm always confused as to who is who. She was talking Italian (unless I mix up Italian and Spanish now ), so I thought she was Italian and well known there.
  10. #CasaMika 2 - 2017

    But that other woman from last year, the one who threw onions at Mika, she seemed very straightforward and outgoing as well to me... ah well, I really should watch the full episode from tuesday, and not just parts of it, maybe then I'll see what you mean.
  11. #CasaMika 2 - 2017

    Ah, that's a shame. Who is this Luciana, what is she famous for? Why do some people not like her? Of the Mika fans I would've said maybe they're jealous... - but if you say some journalists don't like her either, that can't be the (only) reason.
  12. #CasaMika 2 - 2017

    Just wondering, how was the reception of the press and Italian public? I know Mika posted a positive article from La Repubblica, but I don't understand the details... As they had such a big marketing campaign for the show, did it get even more viewers than last year? I don't remember how many it was last year, but iirc it was pretty good.
  13. #CasaMika 2 - 2017

    Aww, he's talking German again! t4p! I can't find this on Instagram... is it because it was only live and then automatically deleted after a while?
  14. Mika in UK Press 2017

    Thanks for this. Actually I meant to ask him at the Rose d'Or awards whether he was planning to bring Casa Mika to other countries, but the time he was there was too short and I forgot. Happy to have my question answered by this article. I agree with Nina, it's good to see this point of view in an article. I just wish they had gotten their facts right. Rose d'Or, not Palm d'Or. And I really ask myself how they get the idea that Mika is still popular in Austria. I've never stopped following him because as long as he keeps making music - and I'm glad to read it's true that this is still the core of it all - I don't care much what else he's doing. And I've said quite often in discussions about this that I believe he started this all to finance his music. Ok, now he came to like doing TV, so indeed things have changed a lot. But with a show like Casa Mika, I understand why he likes it and I certainly would love to watch it in English. Sad that he doesn't speak German, so my country will probably stay Mika-less forever. *sigh* Anyway, although I kinda miss the good old times, I'm fine with all those changes. Times and people change... it's sometimes hard to accept for me as well, but I know it's necessary for development. Just one thing really bothers me: The fact that it has become so rare for him to meet his fans after the gigs. Maybe he's just getting old and needs more sleep than in his 20s. But it was one of those things in the "good old times" that made it so special, and I can't see the reason for this change, because it has nothing to do with him doing TV. At least as long as I refuse to believe that TV has changed him in such a negative way that he cares less about his fans than he used to. The special moments have gotten extremely rare but they still exist.
