Siti Nurhaliza gets Grammy invite


PETALING JAYA: Datuk Siti Nurhaliza is going to the 49th Annual Grammy Awards this Sunday. 

The pop icon will be the first Malaysian to be given the honour of walking up the red carpet meant for invited celebrities at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. 

Siti: Will be the first Malaysian to walk up the red carpet meant for invited celebrities.
Siti made it thanks to the two tickets she won as Best Dressed celebrity at Star World’s “Breakfast With the Stars” in conjunction with the 78th Annual Academy Awards last March. 

Star World wrote and received permission from the Grammy organisers for Siti to walk on the red carpet along with other invited celebrities.  

“Siti is very popular in this region and she deserves this honour,” said Nini Yusof, assistant vice-president of Star TV in Singapore. 

“We are sending our Channel V crew together with the local team in Los Angeles to film the footage which will be shown later over Star World. 

“I told her that she would walk on the red carpet last Sunday and she was so thrilled.”  

Siti, who will be accompanied by her husband Datuk Khalid Mohd Jiwa, said: “I am so elated. Being able to attend the Grammys is good enough for me, what more walking on the red carpet.”  

Siti will be wearing a black and white kebaya that Malaysian designer Bernard Chandran will tailor for her from Chanel material she bought in London. 

“It’s another dream come true for me to be there with all the big names,” she said. 

Nini said if Siti’s dress stood out, “she might attract the international paparazzi. We hope that happens. We are giving her the platform as she is a big icon in this part of the world.”
