Syukur

Harini aku ada berita baik, tapi tanak bagitau pe pe kat sini. Cukup aku bersyukur kerana peluang nampaknya da terbuka tuk aku mengambil selangkah lagi dalam mengembangkan bakat aku ke disiplin lain dalam bidang hiburan sekarang.

But it was a good day today and aku kept busy with some stuff. Again takleh bagitau apa.

What I CAN share with you is something unrelated. Besok memang busy gila. I got to rush to TV3 to pick up something. Then make a dash to Kompleks Suka Bukit Jalil nak tengok ujibakat Akademi Fantasia, hari pertama. Then pas urusan peribadi sikit and a spot of shopping with Faz, nak ke Stadium Putra seberang jerk tuk layan rehearsal Anugerah Juara Lagu 23.

Following which I got to dash off to Damansara Perdana tuk pelancaran butik Belicious milik Umie Aida dan Betty. Da janji ngan Faz and Liyana to meet up so should be quite a night.

Definitely a lot of pics to post, so look out.

Apapon, back to cita Anugerah Juara Lagu on Sunday. Aku dengar pagi esok at 11am, bertempat di Sri Pentas, Bandar Utama, the final voting will be going on. Aku dikhabarkan senarai mereka yang menjadi juri. Setuju sangat hampir semua nama termasuk penyanyi, pencipta lagu dan sebagainya. Cuma dua nama je aku rasa very the tak perlu. But oh well. Let's just hope for the best.

Ada ke keputusan bocor. Eeee... tak mungkin. Kalao aku tahu pun (cam sebelom ni penah jadik) aku diamkan jerk.

But on bab Anugerah Juara Lagu 23 nih, aku baru sedar aku lum wat predictions. So here they are.




So ni lagu-lagu yang akan bertanding Ahad nanti di Stadium Putra Bukit Jalil, secara langsung menerusi TV3 pada jam 9.00malam hingga 11.30malam.

CALON JUARA LAGU (Lagu/Kategori/Artis/Penulis Lagu/Penulis Lirik)
1. Bukan Di Sini (Pop Rock/Sofaz/Sofaz/Sofaz)
2. Lagu Kita (Balada/Aizat/Aizat/Aizat)
3. Dusta Berkalang (Etnik Kreatif/Aiman/Hafiz Hamidun/Ahmad Fedtri Yahya)
4. Cuba (Balada/Faizal Tahir/Audi Mok/Faizal Tahir)
5. Yang Pernah (Pop Rock/Estranged/Estranged/Estranged)
6. Bila Nak Saksi (Balada/Spider/Tam Spider/Loloq)
7. Doa Dalam Lagu (Etnik Kreatif/Zahid dan Heliza/Ajai/Loloq)
8. Sampai Syurga (Balada/Faizal Tahir/Audi Mok/Faizal Tahir)
9. Hanya Di Mercu (Balada/Ayu/Aubrey Suwito/Habsah Hassan)
10. Aku Stacy (Pop Rock/Stacy/Intan Norul Azlin Intan/Norul Azlin dan Laila Ismail)
11. Dingin (Balada/Ziana Zain/Azlan Abu Hassan/Azalea)
12. Kalis Rindu (Pop Rock/Elyana/Aidit Alfian/AD Samad)
13. Persoalan Cinta (Etnik Kreatif/Farawahida/Julfekar dan Ku Seman Izza Rosley)
14. Lagu Untukmu (Pop Rock/Meet Uncle Hussain/Taja dan Tass/Taja, Tass dan Lan)

So what are my predictions sapa akan menang? Ok let me just say this first. A good song - is a subjective matter indeed. So mungkin apa sorang suka, sorang agik tak suka kan?

For me, the kriteria of judging should not be based on the definition of best as in the technical approach of things, because there is no way to ascertain that. Those are following factors that should apply.

For me - what makes a song good - will be the uniqueness and fresh appeal of a tune. Does the song sound tired and a repeat of something that may have been done before, and it's relevancy to the business today. Subjective again perhaps - but a more reliable measure to judge by.

On that note, my predictions.

ETNIK KREATIF
Honestly... korang nak aku buang masa predict ke? Ok.. senang. Doa Dalam Lagu. Not because it's that good. But it's the best of the worst. Ngan competition dari lagu-lagu camni, baik buang je kategori ni sebab memang this category drags down the standards of the whole competition.

Bagi meka yang kat stadium ke kat rumah, time persembahan lagu-lagu ni memang tak mustahil penonton gunakan tika ni tuk gi jamban ke haper jer.
PREDICTED WINNER : Doa Dalam Lagu (Etnik Kreatif/Zahid dan Heliza/Ajai/Loloq)



POP ROCK
This is where the competition gets a lot tougher. Baru nampak sikit saingan.

For me secara jujur lagu paling lemah sini lagu Aku Stacy. This is followed by Bukan Di Sini.

Tuk kategori Pop Rock, it's a three cornered fight antara Yang Pernah, Kalis Rindu dan Lagu Untukmu. And I think Kalis Rindu yang pertama tercicir if it boils down to this.

So we have two bands who rock the house being the possible winner here. Both from the new school of Malay rock. It could go either way in terms of the overall compositions and their updated take of the genre today.
PREDICTED WINNER : Yang Pernah - tapi menang photo finish ni. Sengit gila.



BALADA
Ni lagi satu kategori yang memang gila babiks nya tough fight. Tolak tepi lagu Dingin dan Hanya Di Mercu for sounding like something that was released 10 years ago - and nothing spectacular at that (trivia time - lagu haper la yang leh layak ngan lirik dengam perkataan CECITA... meletups!)

Also tolak tepi Bila Nak Saksi. No offence, but tuk aku, again kalao lagu Mabuk, mungkin Spider stand chance. But not on this song.

So again three cornered fight. Of which I think Cuba will fall by the wayside first, walaupon aku rasa tu personal favourite aku.

So the fight will be between Lagu Kita and Sampai Syurga.
PREDICTED WINNER : Sampai Syurga pas juang habis habisan ngan saingan in a simple but beautifully written Lagu Kita.



JUARA LAGU
Honestly aku tak berani pilih walaupon tuk prediction. So my guess, depending on whether the judges are all above 35 or not, will be Yang Pernah or Sampai Syurga. Yes, their age and background have everything to do with it too.

When things get too hard - look at who the judges are and you may guess their choices right.

My guess is Sampai Syurga may just win this. But again - I'm saying if both songs indeed win their category as I predicted Yang Pernah stands the best chance to make it a second win for Estranged again. Just knowing the judges, I doubt it.

For Best Vocal Performance aku dapat rasakan Aizat, Estranged and Faizl Tahir stand the best chance, though I really don't know sebab tak tengok rehearsals lagik tuk judge. Just guessing based on their past record.
.
For Best Performance, Stacy, Estranged, Faizal Tahir stand chance walaopon aku guessing again. Will let you guys know if I change my mind pas tengok rehearsal esok.

Anyway... kita tengok je kang ek.
