AGT: Grand Final

Assalamualaikum.

Episod kesembilan, Grand Final.

Sembilan peserta akhir akan merebut hadiah utama 100,000 dolar Amerika Syarikat. Tiga peserta layak dari setiap sesi separuh akhir. Satu layak secara automatik setiap minggu (Pilihan Juri) dan dua layak setiap minggu menerusi undian penonton. Pilihan Juri bukan bermakna mereka yang terbaik.

Dua peserta terakhir yang mendapat undian terbanyak dari separuh akhir ketiga diumumkan sebelum aksi final bermula. Berikut adalah ulasan peserta yang membuat persembahan.

-------------------------------

1) Urban Crew (Filipina)
Persembahan pembukaan bertenaga dengan aksi akrobatik yang berani. Sangat tersusun. Koreografi yang cantik. Peningkatan berbanding aksi di episod separuh akhir. Aksi agak gila apabila melompat ke bawah pentas. Aksi-aksi berbahaya yang dilakukan menggerunkan para juri dan penonton. Menghiburkan, dan mendapat penghormatan berdiri dari juri. Rating 8.5/10.

Jay: "You guys definitely stepped it up. Almost flawless performance, but you guys blew me away. When you guys flipped off the stage, crazy."

Anggun: "My heart beats so fast. I was so afraid of you, but you know what, that was such a solid performance again. During the semi final, there were some mistakes but tonight you delivered."

David: "You know what, we keep getting asked this question like, 'what do you wanna tell the act so that they can shine?'. And we always wanna say they just need to do better than before. I don't know how you did it but you did better than you did before. It was just amazing. You're not only changing young kids' lives but you're changing your own lives right in front of us as we see it."

2) Angela July (Indonesia, pilihan juri)
Latar belakang yang menarik ketika Angela menyanyikan lagu 'Skyfall' sambil bermain harp. Nada yang baik seperti biasa. Suara yang dinamik dan indah. Menunjukkan peningkatan berbanding persembahan yang lepas. Nada tinggi yang memukau. Rating 9/10.

David: "Angela, you know in your video package you said 'go big or go home'. And you chose to go big. Thank you so much for that great performance."

Jay: "Usually you show us more softer, more elegant side. But today you more charismatic. I love it. I think you showed us why you deserve to be here today."

Anggun: "First of all, that dress is commitment. That is one dress to die for. You know Angela, you are the true example of millions of people in this side of the world who have undeniable talent, but they have full-time job. You are stay at home mom which is the most important job in the world. I'm so happy that you're here. I'm so happy that your family supports you because otherwise we wouldn't have seen this magical moment that was really beautiful."

3) Canion Shijirbat (Mongolia)
Tarian yang digabungkan dengan latar belakang digital. Pembikinan yang memakan masa. Sangat kreatif dan sangat berbakat. Persembahan lebih baik dari yang ditunjukkan di separuh akhir. Persembahan yang sangat bermakna baginya kerana dapat melamar isterinya di depan seluruh Asia. Persembahan ditamatkan dengan 'Will you marry me?'. Rating 9.5/10.

Jay: " You definitely stepped it up with your graphics, your creativity. And whether you win this competition or not, you should be proud of yourself. I think Mongolia should be proud of you and your wife should be proud of you because that was a great performance."

Anggun: "I want that kind of proposal, anytime. No, really. First of all, congratulations to you and your wife. Again, for me, you are showing another side of Mongolia. This is the modern side, the very talented side and congratulations. Your country must be very proud of you."

David: "You know i'm kind of known as the dream crusher and we've spent the last few months with this panel. Whether they say no or yes is very important. But what we say doesn't matter isn't it? The only thing that matter is that you got the yes from that fella back there. The most important yes of all! You did great, man! You made all the Mongolians proud. Thank you very much. David. The name is David."

------------------

4) The Sacred Riana (Indonesia)
Tidak mengecewakan walaupun persembahan kali ini sedikit mengambil masa. Riana memulakan persembahan dengan memindahkan corak bintang dari kertas yang dibakar ke tangan Anggun. Riana menyeru zombi yang keluar dari kotak. Riana masuk ke kotak tersebut, hilang, dan muncul semula di belakang juri. Persembahan yang unik dan menggerunkan. Rating 8/10.

Anggun: "Riana, I don't know what is it with me? Why? You have these two (Jay and David). One thing. Riana, that was spectacular. That was spectacular! Really. I'm still very much afraid of you. I'm super scared of you but I have to say. I'm becoming, you turn me into your absolute fan. It's a bit weird."

David: "Well you know, Riana. Throughout this whole process with Asia's Got Talent this season has become the one that everybody wants to see and everybody wants to watch. She becomes the most anticipated act of all the acts that we've seen over the last few months. Today, tonight, she did not disappoint. She killed it! Literally."

Jay: "After you know, watching your semis, I'm glad I came prepared today and I wore diaper. I mean, you are very unique and I was very entertained and frightened at the same time. Great job."

-----------------

5) Sobhi Shaker (Malaysia)
Satu lagi persembahan menarik dari ahli magik yang berasal dari Syria ini. Helah kad yang penuh dengan mesej penting dan besar. Sobhi menceritakan tentang mimpinya yang musnah dan bagaimana dia bangkit semula. Satu helah di mana Sobhi mencantumkan semula kad yang telah dikoyak. Sobhi terus konsisten dan antara peserta terbaik musim ini. Rating 9.5/10.

David: "You know Sobhi, obviously the message is just so profound and your life experience is so profound. You're a magician but you yourself are magic."

Jay: "Looking good, bro. I like the suit. But you know, I love talent. But I always like to stand behind someone who uses the talent for good. And I think that's you. So good job."

Anggun: "Sobhi, I think more than ever, we need artists, we need performers like you to convey this message of love and unity. Because we need that kind of reminder constantly in the world that we're living right now. I hope people vote massively for you. I really hope so."

------------

6) Neil Rey Garcia Llanes (Filipina)
Persembahan Neil juga lebih baik dari aksi separuh akhir. Persembahan beatbox penuh kelas. Sukar dipercayai bagaimana Neil bernafas. Memulakan aksi sebagai DJ yang berdepan masalah teknikal. Neil seterusnya menampilkan kombinasi 10 bunyi berbeza, lebih banyak dari sebelum ini. Lebih mengagumkan apabila Neil menambah koreografi tarian dalam persembahan. Rating 9.5/10.

Jay: "Mabuhay! Neil, I think you are definitely a natural-born performer. I think you have a long career ahead of you, bro. Good job."

Anggun: "Well, I still don't know how do you manage to breathe. It's almost as if you're an alien that you have more vocal cords than you know, other human beings. Really, that performance was something."

David: "I just have one word for you. It was so clever. It was so clever. I was so impressed. You said you gonna bring it. You brought it. You went from six to ten sounds. Bravo, man."

--------------- 

7) ADEM Dance Crew (Kyrgyzstan)
Memulakan persembahan ala robot di tempat kerja. Seterusnya mempamerkan kelenturan badan yang sukar dipercayai. Tiga orang ahli keluar meninggalkan seorang saja meneruskan persembahan solo dengan kelembutan. Penutup persembahan yang sentimental. Kurang rancak berbanding separuh akhir. Rating 8.5/10.

Jay: "Yeah I mean, each time you guys are so precise, so clean, so dope. This time around, you went for more sentimental ending. I thought that was great. I think you guys really brought it. Good job."

Anggun: "Yes, you know honestly, I'm one of those people who used to think that Kyrgyzstan is one of those discrete countries from over there, from somewhere. But now, thanks to you. I think of Kyrgyzstan as home of incredibly, insanely talented dancers. It's crazy what you can do. I mean, come on. You turn yourselves into human pretzels. It's crazy."

David: "You know, I've made a living hopefully with my heart. And you guys showed so much hearts out there. I love the story. It wasn't just the moves that are obviously insane and I don't know how you did them. But the heart of your story was so beautiful. So thank you for sharing. If I was sitting at home right now, I'd vote for you guys."

--------------

8) Feng E (Taiwan, pilihan juri)
Latar belakang yang menarik. Pilihan muzik yang catchy. Sangat tenang dan yakin pada usianya yang muda. Benar-benar bakat besar untuk masa depan. Menggunakan gitar akustik dan ukelele elektrik, Feng E memperlahankan rentak persembahan di tengah sebelum menamatkan persembahan dengan meningkatkan tempo. Peserta cilik yang hebat. Rating 9/10.

David: "Dude, I hate to interrupt but I showed your tape to John Mayer and he was blown away. And I wanna tell you. You're like Hendrix. In ten years, you're gonna be famous. Promise."

Jay: "Yo Feng E, you get better each time we see you. And you're a true testament to the saying 'the sky is the limit'. The sky really is the limit for you. Good job."

Anggun: "Feng E, such huge talent in such small package. We see that you had fun on stage and that is a true performer when we can feel that. So I think you were born to be a performer. You were born to be on that stage."

------------ 

9) DM-X Comvalenoz (Filipina, pilihan juri)
Cuba untuk membenci mereka tapi terpaksa mengakui persembahan mereka hebat sekali lagi. Latar belakang yang terang. Persembahan yang gila-gila, bertenaga, seksi, dan kelakar. Aksi mereka dengan lagu 'Despacito' sangat menghiburkan. Persembahan penutup yang terbaik. Walaupun bukan peserta kegemaran penulis, DMX tidak mengecewakan. Mereka mendapat sorakan padu penonton sebaik saja menamatkan persembahan. Rating 9.5/10.

Jay: "You know, it still amazes me that you rock the most prettiest, feminine dresses with armpit hair. And for me, I think you guys deserve to win the whole competition."

Anggun: "You know what, I was really looking forward to your performance because you never fail to impress me. I absolutely love the energy, I love the skill, I love the sexiness, I love the humour, I love everything. DMX, you rock my world!"

David: "I would say everything that my fellow judges have said. And then finally, I'm just so confused because I don't know whether I should hire you as my bodyguards or I should date you. I just don't know which. It was really, really spectacular!"

--------------------------------

Hebat-hebat belaka persembahan semua peserta di Grand Final. Keputusan sepenuhnya di tangan penonton dengan undian akan dibuka selama enam hari sehingga tengah malam hari Khamis waktu Singapura. Juri tiada bahagian langsung dalam penentuan juara.

Peserta dengan undian terbanyak akan bergelar juara Asia's Got Talent musim kedua dan membawa pulang hadiah utama 100,000 dolar Amerika Syarikat.

Ranking peribadi penulis:
1) Canon Shijirbat (Mongolia)
2) DM-X Comvalenoz (Filipina)
3) Sobhi Shaker (Malaysia)
4) Neil Rey Garcia Llanes (Filipina)
5) Angela July (Indonesia)
6) Feng E (Taiwan)
7) Urban Crew (Filipina)
8) The Sacred Riana (Indonesia)
9) ADEM Dance Crew (Kyrgyzstan)

Bagi penulis, persembahan Canion Shijirbat adalah bukti kebijaksanaan dan kreativiti satu bakat besar dari Mongolia. DM-X dengan gabungan beberapa makhluk gila-gila, Sobhi dengan magisnya, Neil dengan bakat beatbox. Canion sangat luar biasa.

Namun, kelihatan seperti The Sacred Riana hampir pasti menang. Video persembahan final Riana sudah melepasi dua juta tontonan, jauh meninggalkan jumlah tontonan peserta final yang lain. Riana mendapat sokongan padu penduduk Indonesia selain peminatnya yang lain di seluruh Asia.

Walaupun Sobhi tidak muncul juara musim kedua Asia's Got Talent, dia sudah menang di hati penulis. Begitu juga Canion dengan kreativiti yang berada di planet lain.

Keyboard off.
