For the Best Vocal Performance category, Jaclyn Victor won for her rendition of Ikut Rentakku. Jaclyn also broke Hafiz’s three-year winning streak for the award.
The glittering event saw 12 songs compete for the main prize including Salammusik’s Aku Pelat, Stacy’s Bosan, Azlan & The Typewriter’s Tanda Tanya and Noh Salleh’s In Love With You. Songs were chosen based on their performances on the Muzik Muzik weekly chart, a music programme on TV3.
