Mediacorp’s flagship Malay talent discovery competition, will make its long-awaited comeback next month! Fans can look forward to contestants battling it out every week for the eventual top prize of $25,000 as they pull out all the stops to impress resident judges Najip Ali and Ann Hussein, who will be accompanied by an equally star-studded line-up of guest judges.
