  1. I'm not sure where Mika's siblings live anymore - but I think they were staying in Paris while their mother was so ill. They may have gone back to their respective homes by now, don't you think, if they have jobs or other relationships? It's interesting that we're discussing this now, because last night I ran across an old interview in which he said that London was his home and it always would be. Of course, this interview was from 2007 or 2008 (of course, I can't find it now that I need it!) so his opinion could have changed. Yes, I recall him saying that the
  2. Hi Naomi, I found these early articles, but I can't find any videos with what you're looking for. It's probably in some of the video interviews from 2007-2008, but I don't know which ones. Sorry. https://www.femalefirst.co.uk/music/musicnews/MIKA-29901.html
  3. I'm sure I remember seeing video at one time, but I can't find anything anywhere -- maybe @Kumazzz knows?
  4. Thanks for letting us know, Virgi. I've banned this spammer!
  5. There are lots of exceptions, and certainly work is one of them, but it depends on what sort of work. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/from-other-countries.html LOL, @Paoletta How many times and how many people are you going to ask? As I've told you several times already, here and on Instagram, the truth is that none of us knows for certain unless Mika himself says something. I'm guessing, however, that he is not married yet.
  6. I just read through the current rules, and it doesn't sound like Andy can travel to the US, unless he and Mika are actually married -- there's an exception for spouses! Mika has family in the New York City area, so I can imagine that he's traveling to see them, passing through Vermont on the way. Unless he's taking a break in New England
  7. It was definitely difficult for my husband and me -- he used to travel so much that I often felt like I was single! So when he suddenly was home ALL the time, well, let's just say that we had some tense moments! So there was an adjustment period, but we got through it. Mostly unscathed! As for the dates, Mika has always been that way with dates and numbers. You know, "it took 3 weeks to put the Versailles concert together... it took 2 weeks... it took 10 days..." "There were 10,000 people in the audience... there were 12,000.... there were 15,000..." Sometimes I think he's vague o
  8. It is the same suit, and it's a Viktor & Rolf: https://www.farfetch.com/shopping/men/viktor-rolf-plaid-check-print-fitted-blazer-item-15727351.aspx
  9. I guess this excerpt wasn't broadcast? But it's on the show's Facebook page. He's told this Orlando Bloom story before.
  10. Well, that's just it. I was trying to go into interview mode when he said something like, "You and I need to do something together." And then things went downhill from there.
  11. I haven't heard anything, and I'm curious as well. I wonder if he'll stay in Canada for a while -- he clearly loves Montreal, and he's invested the two weeks of quarantine, so maybe he has more planned there? or maybe he'll just go back to Athens to write some more? It would be nice to know! I've lived through too many "Mika droughts"!
  12. Thanks, Cath! The '80s girl in me is so happy -- can't tell you how much I love Bronski Beat and the memories it evokes! And of course Bowie is one of my Big 3. Anything by Elvis is always welcome and same for Gaga. The only thing I don't know is Djadja? But in Mika's capable hands I'm sure it's going to be amazing!
  13. Hey Eriko, and anyone else confused about time zones -- I always use this site to figure out what time it is, maybe it can help you. https://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/ Also, I remembered that I read an interesting piece in Rolling Stone a few years ago about the meaning behind Cohen's Hallelujah and how it came to be. The song's not simply about sex, or about religion, and it has an interesting backstory. I googled and finally found it, if you should want to read it: https://www.rollingstone.com/feature/how-leonard-cohens-hallelujah-brilliantly-mingled-
  14. Periodically Universal puts out compilation playlists or albums that include one of Mika's songs. When that happens, it seems that YouTube automatically uploads all the songs from the playlist/album again with the new artwork. You'll see it again here: We've seen it a number of times over the past few years, and it always freaks us out, thinking Mika went and released new music without telling us! Alas, it's just old music with a new face. I have no idea why they do it that way.
  15. OK, here's the full medley, for those who can't see the dailymotion videos. Thanks to @Ève Grenier for the files! 1399869986_2021-03-28-StarAcademie(Mika).mp4
  16. For anyone who can't see the dailymotion videos above, here's the Leonard Cohen tribute: I tried to upload the full medley on YouTube as well, but it was blocked due to copyright... I'll see if I can upload it here, although it's a pretty big file.
  17. Hi Mindy! There are a number of US fans still here but I guess we don't hang out in this thread as much. Welcome, though, and I'm happy to chat here when I can! I'm in Northern VA just outside of DC.
  18. I couldn't get my VPN to work right last night -- no matter what I did, RAI knew that I was NOT in Italy and they were not letting me in! So thank you to everyone who posted bits and pieces last night and for the replay today! It was truly a sweet thing to see Mika's reactions to both Elio and Chiara's performances.
  19. Yes, I agree. And about "sleep like a baby" -- I saw a comedian once who said he'd slept like a baby the night before -- got up every two hours and cried.
  20. @Paoletta The saying is "slept like a baby." Come un bambino. Which means that you slept very soundly, very well.
  21. Hi Liam! Glad you found your way here to us!
  22. One more from Canada: https://hollywoodpq.com/mika-debarque-a-lacademie-des-lundi-et-a-dambitieux-plans/ Mika débarque à l'Académie dès lundi et a d'ambitieux plans Crédit: Cover Images Par Pierre-Luc Houle 18 mars 2021 • 11:24 L'auteur-compositeur-interprète et musicien britannico-libanais Mika a confié avoir l'intention de présenter deux gros numéros extravagants lors des deux soirées d'éliminations de Star Académie auxquelles il participera, a-t-il dit en
  23. NO pants? LOL! I think maybe short pants - shorts, if it's warm enough in the house! It's funny the things you notice! It's also funny that my husband and I made homemade fries on Friday night, actually fish & chips. But we did it outside to keep the smell out of the house. Self-isolating does get you trying new and different things, doesn't it?
  24. I guess I should find a COVID mask emoji! LOL! And even 14+ years later, I still remember those early feelings as well!
  25. Creating a new spot for you all to post any tech issues you might have with the forum here. Hopefully you won't have any, but if you do... OK, I'll start. You may have noticed that Instagram and Facebook both changed the way you can embed their posts here on the forum recently, and so things don't show up, or they don't always display properly. Well, Invision (the platform this forum is hosted on) will be issuing a fix for that very soon. So stay tuned! They're also looking into supporting TikTok embeds.
