meimei88 Posted February 26, 2007 Share Posted February 26, 2007 Manchester Evening News Posted by Lawrence Poole on February 26, 2007 12:47 PM CONSIDERING the speed with which Mika took the British music world by storm, you could be forgiven for thinking the Lebanon-born phenomenon was the cynical concoction of a record company scientist, hired to fuse the soaring, disco camp of the Scissor Sisters with the dynamic showmanship of Freddie Mercury. As on paper there is no doubt such a thrilling cocktail would shift units by the truckload and so it has proved. Of course in reality, Mika was actually rejected by a number of record execs before finally securing his big break, apparently including pop impresario Simon Cowell. After rocketing to the number one slot with his debut offering Grace Kelly, Mika now hits the live trail aiming to prove heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s no one hit wonder and he possesses the potential for career longevity that is so often missing with many artists. He plays here a sold out show at Academy 2 on Tuesday, but expect a city return to a larger space before the end of the year. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
