TV3 hosts 25th annual Juara Lagu

KUALA LUMPUR: A touch of nostalgia filled Stadium Putra, Bukit Jalil last night as TV3 hosted its 25th Anugerah Juara Lagu competition.

Celebrating 25 years of the premier music competition in Malaysia with the theme “Music Mapping”, the star-studded night began with performances by past Juara Lagu winners Francesca Peters, Nash and M. Nasir.

Later, during an interlude segment, the audience was further mesmerised by performances from three divas of local music, Datuk Sharifah Aini, Datuk Siti Nurhaliza and Ziana Zain.

Big winner: Ana receiving her trophy from 8TV chief executive officer Ahmad Izham Omar Sunday night.

However, the night still belonged to the stars of this latest edition of Anugerah Juara Lagu, as Tolong Ingatkan Aku was named Song of the Year.

Singer Ana Raffali, who also composed the music and lyrics for the winning song, took home a trophy and RM35,000.

First runner-up was Drama King, sung by Meet Uncle Hussain & Black with music composition and lyrics by Taja and Tun Teja respectively. They walked away with a trophy and RM15,000.

Noktah Cinta clinched third prize. The team, comprising singer Hafiz, composer Ajai and lyricist Shah Qalam, won RM12,000.

Hafiz also clinched the best vocal performance award. He walked away with a trophy and RM10,000.

The best performance award went to Faizal Tahir – for his rendition of Hanyut composed by Audi Mok. The singer won a trophy and RM10,000.

Cheryl Samad, Ally Iskandar and Faizal Ismail hosted the event, which was broadcast live on TV3.
