  1. There's not much online about this Songwriter's Society, this is the most recent (2013) and most reliable source of information I found about it: ... seems to be a very exclusive club.
  2. I don't know if there are 2 sessions that day, but usually the tickets you can win here are for the evening sessions.
  3. It'd make a nice Christmas single for sure! 😊
  4. Aww, this new song sounds beautiful! From the little snippets I heard, it sounds like it has wonderful harmonies - maybe it's a bit like Ordinary Man and Pick up off the floor, 2 of my faves... Let's see if it stays like this on the album, he has often changed songs from early versions to album versions.

    I also hope he keeps it that way, but I guess if he wants a new look, he'll do that for the release of the new album, or for the tour, and not for a TV show. So the fact that the curls are there now doesn't guarantee they'll still be next year. Anyway, I hope you're right - curls forever!

    Yes, apparently I was very lucky and usually the M&G's after the Voice recordings aren't so long, he often just waves from the car or doesn't stop at all, like on Tuesday. I don't know if I would've gone to see him at the Voice, if he didn't know me for years already and I want him to know I'm still there. And surely not if there had been a gig instead. Because the Voice recording itself really isn't worth it for a Mika fan trip, imo, at least if you don't speak French. The talents are interesting to watch, some really good, others just boring, and all sorts of different music and voices, at least in the show I attended. But that's no reason for me to travel to Paris. Mika concentrates on the talents and on the other jury members, and the show is not about him and his universe, as it was with Casa Mika. I wasn't disappointed by this, it was what I expected, but anyway I don't have the feeling I missed anything because I didn't attend the afternoon recording. Except maybe a few hours spent with my MFC friends, but not as for seeing Mika. I'd have been bored to death til midnight, if I had attended both recordings. Anyway, I feel extremely lucky to have gotten such a M&G, despite the long hours of work for Mika before that. With my 2 small kids, atm I can't see Mika as often as I'd like to, so of course it's very nice that the only chance I got this year was such a success. Back in the old days, we called it "Mika luck", I always had lots of that in the first few years... then it was gone for a while, but now at least sometimes it still seems to be there.

    Btw, there was a cute little visitor... when Mika first entered the Studio, he brought his Nephew with him. They watched the rehearsals of a song together, that one of the former judges performed. And when Mika needed his mic attached, he sat Beau in Soprano's chair, where he stayed for quite a bit, before Soprano came. Very cute.

    Aww, thanks for that! I love watching M&G videos where you can hear him talking to me, but not me talking to him. So I don't have to be embarrassed about my tired stuttering at 2am, but can remember his words & rewatch him smiling at me. 😊 When he was giggling so sweet while talking to me, that was when I asked him whether he can say anything about the tour yet. "No! *giggle*" Yes! And inside when he first saw me (I had a good place to see him when his chair was turned to the audience), he said "Wie geht's?". He doesn't need to speak German for me, actually I prefer talking with him in English, but I love it that he appreciates my presence that way, that's very sweet of him. That little gesture of remembering to turn around and say goodnight to Renate and me in German, and to Nina in English, instead of just talking French for the 95% French fans there, that means a lot to us.

    Mika quote of the evening, before he got in the car: "see you soon with new music!" - and he looked really happy and excited. I asked him about the tour for next year, but he can't say anything yet - just that it's "a lot". I guess the Voice recording was nice too, though I have no comparison to others - I did enjoy myself, and others who are there more often said it was a really good one. But let's face it, I didn't travel to Paris for that, but to see Mika, and that was worth it. He even dug out a few German words for me. Fangurl mode, lol. ... I'm off to bed now, early train tomorrow.

  11. This is for the evening session, right? I'll be there, already got my confirmation on the ticket website, hope I'll see some other MFCers there!

    Elf costume! No, I don't think so. Thanks for the translation and the tips! Makes sense with the camera interferences, no glitter pineapple then. I do have some floral dresses, might not be the best option for November weather, but who knows, they say 20 degrees for the next few days. So is it always warm inside? Well, better that than too cold. Edit: Although, I'm not keen on going on screen, just sitting near Mika but being hidden from the camera would be perfect. Guess that's not possible, but I certainly don't need extra camera time.

    So, I got a confirmation for the evening session of the 14th. 😊 For the afternoon it says "demande annulée", so I guess that's a "no". 🙄 Could some French speaker please translate the dresscode for me? Google translate only partly makes sense. I suppose marques means brands, but google translates it with stains, so I'm not sure how reliable that translation is... Another fan told me, no sequins, but I can't find that in this text... - was wondering if I could wear a shirt with a silver glittery sequin pineapple on it, but ofc only if it's not against the dresscode. DRESSCODE Tenue correcte et colorée exigée. Pas de survêtement ! Pas de vêtement FLUO ! Évitez les marques apparentes et les rayures.

    There's more dates open for registration now. But still no e-mail about tickets for the dates of the first week...
  15. Generally true. Just that half a dozen times didn't help anything for me, I guess after m&g no. 50 or so, I finally started to become calmer! And I'm *still* nervous now.
