Tomok Juara OIAM3 2009

| May 1, 2009

Last night we have seen the New Boyz lead singer Shah Indrawan “Tomok” Ismail has emerged as the contest’s most creative and entertaining contestant, and for that, he won the RM1 million prize! Almost every week, 25-year-old Tomok of Rembau has made his performances his very own. Strict judges Paul Moss and Syafinaz Selamat loved his performances, most notably in the third week of the competition when he gave his take on Beyonce’s Crazy In Love. Tomok, the fourth of six siblings, said he joined OIAM3 to “beef up his singing skills” and progress from teenybopper to adult contemporary artiste.

“New Boyz has been around for a decade, and I’m one of the original members who joined at 15. All this while I’ve been a ‘T-shirt singer’ but OIAM3 has matured me into a “coat and vest” crooner,” he said.

Tomok is a great fan of The Moffatts, Search, Slam, U2, Bon Jovi and Rod Stewart, and credits his brother-in-law and producer Zulkifli Majid of 2 By 2 fame (Ismaliza’s husband) for introducing him to various local and foreign artistes’ works.

“I’ll invest the prize money in my first solo album, and start my studio if I win. It’s always been my dream to be a producer, composer and lyricist in the long run,” he said, adding that he would love to work with Faizal Tahir, Aizat Amdan, Aubrey Suwito and Audi Mok for his album. Moss and 8TV chief executive officer Ahmad Izham Omar both described this year’s finalists as the show’s most competitive to date.

“All three had their moments in the episodes thus far. The key to winning is to challenge one’s limits and give the audience something to remember,” said Moss.

Ahmad Izham said all three had a good shot at winning with their different strengths.

Tomok has performed Rindu Terhenti composed by Aubrey and written by Tinta S. Aweera performed Ku Di Sini composed by Lin Li Zhen and written by Pacha, and Esther sang Mimpiku composed by Sharon Paul and written by Mable Lew.

Reigning champion Ayu Damit and Bunkface has been the guest artistes. The grand finals has been televised “live” from Stadium Malawati, Shah Alam last night at 8.30pm. The contestant who receives the lowest number of SMS votes for the previous weekly concert will exit the show, leaving two contestants to compete for the grand prize. However, The last-minute surprise — as in the case of OIAM1’s grand finals, when all three finalists battled it out until the end. Ahmad Izham said 8TV’s website had conducted an opinion poll for viewers to vote for the contestants they want to hear sing in the finals.
