FremantleMedia's Singapore Idol will return for its third season in August on Mediacorp TV Singapore Pte. Ltd in Singapore. The new season will once again be hosted by Singaporean actor-comedian Gurmit Singh and co-hosted by last season's SI winner Hady Mirza. Returning to the judging panel are musician Dick Lee; managing director of Mediacorp Radio, Florence Lian and music producer and director of Hype Records, Ken Lim. The show returns after a three-year hiatus with a few new elements (among them, the 'Judge's Save' and the allowing of musical instrument-playing Idol hopefuls), with this year's crop vying for a recording contract with Universal Music.
