I bet each music fan in the country was stuck on the tele last night watching the Anugerah Juara Lagu 26 on TV3, huh? Well, at least I am... coz right at 9 pm, I got the best seat in the house. Front row. With my feet up, no shoes whatsoever, cosy on the sofa with the fluffy cushions unlike those in the Stadium Putra. Isn't that the best one? And if I'm hungry, there's always food in the fridge to get some. If there's nature's call, I don't need to queue. Ha!
What's up with the results? Oh man, this time around I think the battle was tight! Extremely tight! Who do I like? Jac Victor who's stepping in to sing the movie anthem of Merong Mahawangsa 'Sedetik Lebih' was not bad either as her vocal is stupendous (though I much prefer the original singer btw). And that three divas - awesome. Kalau Berpacaran - that song is cool. So as Kekanda Adinda - they look and sound cute. Alyah, ho ho ho... tak sia2 ko bawak Remy Ishak, ha? Hmmm... taktik mengelirukan pihak lawan btol, mujur ko menang persembahan terbaik! Yuna? I don't understand her song...sorry. But I still think those hijabi girls will be rooting for her anyway.
But again, why Cinta Muka Buku doesn't win? Oh oh oh oh oh...no! Probably because the audience or the jury can't hear her vocal very well, that's why it's not her day. It was a bit slow though, which is quite unfortunate. Still, I think the lyrics is very poetic, very raw and very honest; that at least could be given some recognition in the competition, if any. I know lots of people love it. I love it. My 10-year old nephew love it. So there, you got supporters. In the end the one who brought home the Juara Lagu is iPod nano. Owh silap... Awan Nano, sorry. Ahaks!
I think, okay, the song maybe deserve to win coz hearing that afro guy sang it - man, I got goosebumps (but without the goose or the bumps. aik, camner tu?) His voice is awesome, even better than the original record! No wonder he win the award for the best vocal performance again, after last year he snapped the same one. Yet, deep down inside I think the main factor that the song win is becoz it was by the Sifu. So, no comment there. No one can lawan Hang Tuah , you know?
Anyway, controversy or not.... just accept the results. To Najwa, if Muka Buku doesn't make it this time, let's do other song - Cinta Laman Blog plak. Well, at least I got part of the the lyrics ready now! :D
