Gegar Vaganza back for second season
Reality tv show Gegar Vaganza will be back for its second season next week and promises to feature a tight competition between professional singers who once made their mark on the local entertainment scene.
The weekly concert will be broadcast live from Shah Alam City Council on Astro Ria (Channel 104) and Ria HD (Channel 123) for eight weeks consecutively every Sunday, 9pm, starting this October 18.
According to Astro Ria channel manager Raqim Ahmad, judging by the positive response for the show since its inception last year, Astro is excited to bring back the programme that features professional singers who once made their big names in the music industry.
“The show had successfully brought back these singers together to display their vocal superiority and their brilliant performances which may have not been showcased to the public for quite some time.”
Raqim also expressed his gratitude to the twelve contestants who agreed to compete this year.
The 12 local singers who will compete in the second edition of Gegar Vaganza include six male contestants including Amir Ukays, Ezad Exist, Nassier Wahab, Zul Handy Black, Achong Sweetchild and Nizam Laksamana, as well as six female contestants including Azian Mazwan Safuan, Ezlynn, Sheeda, Faradhiya, Haiza and Siti Nordiana.
“Looking at their exceptional singing experience, we believe that all of them will give a tight fight in this competition. Their approval and commitment will ensure the success of the programme and we appreciate it very much and surely the second season of Gegar Vaganza will be livelier with their presence.
The fate of the contestants lie 100 per cent in the hands of professional judges, Datuk Ramli MS and Datuk Khadijah Ibrahim, who will evaluate the performance of each contestant based on a predetermined criteria. Participants with the lowest scores will be eliminated each week. A guest judge for the programme will be invited each week.
Gegar Vaganza season two will be hosted by Nabil Ahmad and Jihan Muse.
A cash prize of RM100, 000 awaits the champion, while first, second and third runners-up will receive RM50, 000, RM30, 000 and RM15, 000, respectively. All winners will also receive a trophy.
