Only the brightest star may shine for the 33rd instalment of Anugerah Juara Lagu (AJL33). 12 of the best songs of 2018 will go head to head to claim the throne of AJL33 at Axiata Arena, Bukit Jalil on 3rd February 2019 (Sunday).
The prestigious night will be hosted by last year’s dynamic duo, Sherry Al Hadad and Alif Satar. The night will shine brighter with their witty character and spontaneous attitude. The night will further shine with performances by rock-legend Search, numerous hip-hop artistes and BBNUs; namely Sarah Suhairi, Ismail Izzani and Nabila Razali.
Unlike the previous years of AJL, this year there was a slight difference in terms of ticketing. Tickets were sold to the public online via www.myticket.asia. Tickets were sold like hot cakes beginning 7th January and prices ranged from RM25 (level 4), RM35 (level 3) and RM55 (arena).
“Tickets were sold out in matter of hours! But, tickets for level 4 are still available, so grab them while you can! Goes to show that AJL is still relevant and is the awaited music awards show by the nation. Previous winners like Search, Yassin, M.Nasir, Siti Nurhaliza and others in their prime are engraved in the hearts of the nation. As known to many, AJL is a recognition not only for the artistes, but for the composers and lyricist as well. This is the stage where every local music enthusiast wishes to be, to showcase their song and the bragging rights as the best song of the year,” said Johan Ishak, Chief Executive Officer, Television Networks, Media Prima Berhad.
Additionally, AJL33 is brought to audiences by Samsung Galaxy A9 – First in the World, Quad Camera Smartphone and KFC – It’s Finger Lickin’ Good. Samsung will also sponsor the prize for Best Performance.
