My PoinT Of VieW :-

Ermm..what should I say here...actually from the beginning, my instinct said that Norayu Bte Damit (Ayu), 19, will be the winner in this reality competition...huhuhu...So, last night, everyone's doubts answered and I felt so happy to hear that Ayu won the competition. Based on the performance, I dare to say that Ayu beat Shila with her organic + natural performance..Wow and a big clap for Ayu. When Ayu sang the first song which was Samudera and this song picked by the judges, Syafinaz and Paul Moss, I realized that, Ayu performed it differently..She put little improvisation on it..So, got different rendition if we compared to her previous performance...This was how we considered and evaluate Ayu as a good performer...Her second performance really put my head up in the sky..She was really good last night...performed song, Ceritera Cinta..I espect she will sing it like the way she sang it previously in this competition..When she start to sing this song, I heard a different rendition also and this time she sang smoothly and the voice wave really obvious...huhuhuhu... Good Ayu...you are so good....I still remembered last night that Paul Moss acted so happily...harr..har..har....Ayu's last song which is her brand new single, clarify everything about her ability as a good singer and performer...we can't deny that, its hard to sing a new song and give satisfaction to the audience and to the judges itself...huhuhhuh...but, Ayu proved to everyone and to Malaysian all over the country that she can sing it very well....Last but not least, we proud of you Ayu...SABAH BOLEH BAH
