SSR  - Indonesian Idols Visit The UK
Indonesian Idols Visit The UK
Last week we were delighted to welcome the winner and runner-up of last year's Indonesian Idol competition to SSR in Manchester and London as they visited the UK along with a film crew from Indonesian broadcaster RCTI.

Nowela Mikhelia, the winner of Indonesian Idol season 8, was joined by runner-up Husein Alatas on the trip. During their time in the UK, the Idols visited our Manchester campus for a recording session in our flagship Spirit Studio before heading out on a sight-seeing trip of Manchester and Liverpool including a tour of Manchester United's Old Trafford ground.

This was followed by a trip down to London where the two stars took in the sights of the Capital before returning to Jakarta.

Representatives from SSR Jakarta, who themselves have a long relationship with the Indonesian Idol programme, were also present for the trip which was documented by national broadcaster RCTI for an upcoming Idols Visit The UK TV special.

Ian Hu - SSR Director
“We were delighted to welcome Nowela and Husein to the UK and SSR. They are both huge stars in their home country and it was great to experience their talents first hand during the recording sessions and to show them the sights of Manchester. The entire crew were great company and it was an absolute pleasure spending time with them. I think Nowela and Husein loved every minute of it (despite the cold and rain) and I’m sure they will stay friends of SSR for many years to come."

Watch the moment Nowela was revealed as the competition's winner below:
