I'm looking forward to the event next year!

IMO, Vietnam did a poor job hosting the show this year. Could be due to the lack of popularity. I don't know.

Macau will do well, hosting the show. :cool:

I don't know the exact word in English

but :
1. we say it Pelipur Lara
2. it means something or someone who will get ease our sadness :D
3. we barely say it in daily conversation, only in poem or song
Yes, same in Malaysian, we call 'Penglipurlara' - those who tell stories to amuse, to ease sadness .. and it's a poetic word ;)

Hi all!

2nd semifinal of Malaysian's Anugerah Juara Lagu has finished, and below are the six songs that make the cut to the finals:

Sahabat (Friend) - Najwa Latif feat Sleeq & Syamkamarul
Hanya Aku (Only Myself) - Hyper Act
Kalau Aku Kaya (When I'm Rich) - Awi Rafael ft. Altimet
Kau Yang Terindah (You, The Most Beautiful) - Alyah
Aku Pelat (I'm Speech Impaired) - Salammusik
Tanda Tanya (Question Marks) - Azlan & The Typewriter

By far this is the best semifinal batch, and all the 6 songs deserve the final spots ;)
But my fav will be Hanya Aku & Kalau Aku Kaya.. xcheer

P/s: Alyah is in with a second song, making her the only artist to have more than one song in the final so far ;)

Even though I fear it's impossible, I'd love to see Jaclyn Victor in the ABU TV Song Festival
Yeah it's possible, Jaclyn Victor is in the running for Anugerah Juara Lagu with 'Jagalah Diri', she will be in the 3rd semifinal next week. ;)

Naaaaah,

I prefer for having another unknown name rather have Fatin xsnooty

she is so annoying SOOC
Yes, she's maybe a bit annoying, but her voice is unique and she has a big fanbase (named Fatinistic), if she performs for us, i bet the popularity of the show will increase, if TVRI promotes it great too :mrgreen:

Sorry Danny, the 12 songs going to Anugerah Juara Lagu finals announced yesterday, 'Jagalah Diri' is not in the list xcry xcry
It was a shock to everyone, considering the song was everyone's favorite..

However, Jaclyn Victor will still be in the finals with another song 'Ikut Rentakku' which I personally don't really like :(

I don't know that Malaysia is really promoting the festival (not like our country, i wouldn't be surprised if someone watched the festival accidentally and considered the festival a random TV show) :lol:, does Singapore and Brunei really promote the festival too?

The results are out.. and it was disappointing. xcry

WINNER: Bahagiamu Deritaku (Hafiz) --> xcry weak and cliche ballad song. unworthy of the champion title.
2ND PLACE: Hanya Aku (Hyper Act) --> xcheer My choice for winning spot but so close.. maybe because the band is new and not as many fans as Hafiz..
3RD PLACE: Kalau Aku Kaya (Altimet & Awi Rafael) --> xcheer Another of my choice, very fresh song with meaningful message..

BEST PERFORMANCE: Bahagiamu Deritaku (Hafiz) - All I can say is.. WTF?? Stacy & Altimet is WAYYYY better..
BEST VOCAL: Ikut Rentakku (Jaclyn Victor) - This diva deserves this title, she made the crappy song sounds classy..

I totally detest if Malaysia want to send Hafiz again to ATSF 2014 with this crappy ballad song.
