FGT 2014 is finally over!
I am really glad that we completed FGT 2014 so nicely, there came some problems in finishing this but we crossed the hurdles together and honestly I couldn’t have done this without your helps. We saw some amazing and breathe taking entries in this FGT but only 4 entries made it to the Grande Finale.
Still wewe all are winners as wewe guys are brave enough to participate and onyesha your talent to the world. Some facts about Fanpop’s Got Talent

2.80+fans voted in Drawing and Digital Art Quarter Finals. And 60+ mashabiki kura in shabiki fiction Quarter finals.
3. 137 mashabiki kura in Grande pick and choose the winner as well as runner ups.
4. This was the first time winner were choose kwa direct voting, as earlier kura were took through PMs as we all know it’s hard and time consuming work and not much people PM their kura I thought it would be better to make a pick based on maoni for choosing the winner.
5. It was the first time that FGT had volunteers and judges who had to do work. As earlier judges collected votes, but this time it was different as there were too many entries and mashabiki couldn’t read all the posts, so we gave them the best of best and let them decide the winner.
6. It was first time that categories were divide and each category had different volunteer and judges.
7. This FGT was shabiki fic’s FGT (not because it won au else) as 10+ fics were imewasilishwa which is a large number.

Here is sort interview with winner nerdbuster2 Q.1 How are wewe feeling after winning Fanpop's Got Talent 2014?
The first thing I thought was *what the hell?* I guess xD coz there are so many other talented people on fanpop... and I thought I wouldn'tdeserve it compared to the work other people here put into their entries... but also I am so happy that and thank everyone who voted for my work because it really does give me inspiration to do zaidi and get better at it ^^ Q2. Since when wewe are makig drawings? Do wewe make digital art works?
I've drawn ever since I was tiny ^_^ I upendo drawing coz I can put anything on that sheet of paper I want :3 I also visit extra art classes at school and use a special drawing book to help me :)
Well, I do sometimes do digital art works but they are all so rubbish :P I don't have much patience for computers so doing something so detailedon one would drive me *totally crazy* xD I did once ubunifu a logo for a company a friend's dad is establishing but that is the only thing I ever done that looked any good :) Q3.What's your inayopendelewa talent excluding drawing? And did wewe wanted to participate in another section?
*MUSIC!* I upendo muziki zaidi than anything else but unfortunately there wasn't a section for music, only imba and dancing and trust me, no one wants to see me dance and especially not not hear me sing :P so I admired the imba entry and congratulate her for her great voice ^_^ I play kinanda and guitar, gitaa and I guess that's my other talent.. but as I alisema there is no section for music...
I also like to write.... but I'm not so good at shabiki fictions and stuff like that so I wouldn't have participated in that section ^^ Q4. How wewe came to know about this contest and what was your first reaction towards this?
Well, I kinda joined the club a while zamani but couldn't really figure out what it was for :P I found out about the contest through Sini I think... ukuta post ^^ I had a look and read about what it was and thought to myself 'Why not give it a try? Can't do any worse than lose!' Q5. Did wewe participate in earlier FGTs?
Nope, I didn't jiunge fanpop until last June :D Q6. Whom wewe found a good contender in Drawing and Digital Art Category? And whose entry was your favorite?
I think my two juu favourites were IngridPresley and karinabrony :) I quite liked the characters they both chose and I thought theirs were the best ^^ I congratulate them too for their awesome drawings :D and I thought -AaY_V- digital art work was amazing! ^__^ so well done to him too!!! Q7. What's your inayopendelewa shabiki fiction entry in this FGT?
oh that's a hard one now I gotta think... I'm a big shabiki of Animefan66's uandishi so I guess I have to say his entry was my favourite ^^ *well done Kasey* <3 I have to say I didn't read all of the others because I haven't really had much time lately, but I remember 'The Pirate-King's execution' and 'The dark mansion' they were great too so well done to them :3 Q8. What's your inayopendelewa Haiku entry in FGT 2014?
hmm... I think I only read snsdlover4ever's Haiku entry... so I can't really say it was the best au it would be unfair towards the other haiku entries as I didn't read them all. but well done to snsdlover4ever because she did a great job :D Q9. When wewe joined Fanpop? And what do wewe think of this site?
I joined last mwaka in June not long after my birthday... I actually have *no idea* how I found it... guess I was looking up about Johnny Depp again lol but I guess I must have come across his club somehow and just joined - I guess that's how it happened xD and I have to say it's great I never made so many awesome Marafiki ^_^ I upendo it here it's like a sekunde nyumbani I can come to whenever I feel like it :D because I can be who I am and am not judged the same way other people around me judge me... and I guess everyone feels that way, and that's why I like it :D
Q1O. Would wewe like to tell au suggest something to inayofuata year’s contestants?
oh god me giving advice? O.o haha ok whether anyone will listen au not is another thing :P I would tell wewe guys to keep at what you're good at and never give up when things don't go so well... everyone has a talent and once they've found it they can get better and even those who think they are not so good: wewe are! wewe do your best and that's what counts! competitions aren't about winning (even though winning gives wewe a great feeling of course lol jk) they are about having fun and inaonyesha off how good wewe are at something! even when someone is 'better' than wewe au gets zaidi kura doesn't mean they are better.... it's just someone else's opinion and none of that counts so stay awesome and do your best all the time ^_^ (gosh now I hope wewe guys really do listen took me a lot of effort not to write something silly just then and that's all true what I wrote trust me!) Q11. Anything else wewe wanna say to our fans?
yes: you are all awesome!!!!
I want every single one of wewe to stay as wewe are because I upendo wewe all! you're such great Marafiki and I don't ever want that to change! and I'm sorry if I bored wewe all to death with this you're probably all asleep kwa now but I hope you're not xD have a great siku fanpoppers, friends, bros and sisters :D
