Seal of Approval for Logies Best New Talent
Former Seal keyboardist, Seaton Kay-Smith, shows his Support
With the announcement of the 2013 Logie nominations the social media world is abuzz with news that Seal has been nominated for Most Popular New Male Talent.
For many, the unknown Seal’s inclusion in the Logie nominations comes as a surprise; but for those who know Seal, his nomination is a given.
“A lot of people think that Seal has just emerged from obscurity this year and blown people away with his immense talent and ability, but the truth is, Seal has been working hard since the nineties to be the best new male talent of 2013.” Says Logies Enthusiast, Bill Walsh, “Since the nineties; or in the nineties? Regardless, he’s worked hard to be where he is.”
Since finding success with his song, ‘Kiss from a Rose’ which showcased in 1995’s Batman Forever, Seal has been working away at a career, which 17 years on, finds him nominated for Best New Male Talent, which could be the icing on cake which is almost old enough to sleep with.
But it’s not all smooth sailing, this year’s Most Popular New Male Talent category will provide some stiff competition with fellow Voice personality, Joel Madden, also a nominee; because unlike Seal’s relative obscurity, Joel Madden’s obscurity is genuine and people love genuine.
The Logies is an annual award ceremony shedding light on Australia’s TV talent. This year, A Rational Fear front man, Dan Ilic is also nominated. He’s lucky Seal is still in the baby pool of Most Popular New Male Talent, because in 20 years’ time when Seal graduates to the big leagues, Dan Ilic is going to have some serious competition.
