Yes, you read that right. We are going to highlight ONLY the Malay minority in the Final 1; Channel 5’s latest talent-scouting program airing in 2 days. Last Malay folk standing will be OUR winner! Let’s get to know who’s up against each other, shall we?
21 year old Danial Razak whose cover videos have been shared by The Script and Hot Chelle Rae themselves.
21 year old Farah Erfina wants you to know if she’s smiling in the bus, she’s listening to TaeYang.
Victoria JC’s 18 year old Farisha Ishak is ready to win your heart.
Hakim, 20 years old, recently appeared on Fiza O’s Muzik Arena. So dah ada head-start sikit…
We were not sure dia Melayu ke tak, tapi dia Muslim lah geng! 21 year old Harris Baba.

Hariz Maloy (Mohammad Hariz bin Imran Maloy), 19 year old, looks like Australian Idol, Guy Sebastian kan?
18 year old adik cantik Hashy Yusof has big potential!
Kamsani Jumahat, also from Top 20 MediaCorp Suria’s Anugerah 2009, is 22 years old.

Not bad eh, ada 18 orang Melayu-Islam (termasuk Indian-Muslim k?) All the images were conveniently taken off The Final 1 microsite because to use their selfies on their Twitter profile just won’t do it. Sorry, kalau kita ter-miss any other orang kita from the lot. We wish you good luck! Belajar cakap Melayu yang betul tau, it will come in handy when you win!
