Vodafone M.I.C (Make It Count) is Fiji's own music reality TV show which is similar to the format of American Idol. The show has had five successful seasons. Its sixth season is set for release next year. The show was created by Paul Dominiko. It is broadcast on Fiji TV and airs Tuesdays and Fridays from 7-8 pm (Fiji time)

How contestants are chosen[edit]

The judges and producer travel to places in Fiji (Nadi, Suva, Labasa, Lautoka) where auditions take place. Judges observe the contestants and after auditions narrow hopefuls down. The remaining contestants return for a second audition round, here the top 10 finalists are chosen and go on to compete in the live shows.

Performance night[edit]

Performance night happens two nights before the elimination night. This is where the contestants perform for public votes. Voting lines open at 8pm and close midnight(4 hours of voting time).

Elimination rounds[edit]

Here the votes have been counted and the elimination takes place at the start of the show. The host reveals the bottom three and then the judges deliver who is eliminated(from voting results). The eliminated contestant then sings their swan song and the remaining contestants then continue the show and perform for more vote.
