Kjwan and Vina Morales Win at Ikon Asean!

13 08 2007

It’s a 1-2 Pinoy Punch as Vina Morales and Kjwan both won in their respective categories at the just-concluded 1st Ikon Asean Competition! The event pitted professional artists from Indonesia, the Philippines, and host country Malaysia against each other, creating a unique musical extravaganza.

Vina Morales created a huge upset in the solo category, beating Malaysian Idol Jaclyn Victor and Indonesian Idol finalist Judika. Vina sang “Pangako Sa ‘Yo” (which is familiar among Malaysian audience because of the very popular soap opera of the same title) and a dance track called “Feel So Nice” (not Feel Good as earlier posted) where she shown the crowd that she was also a very good performer.

Meanwhile, Kjwan (pictured here with Ikon Philippines host Asia Agcaoili) bagged the top award for the band category from the get-go if you ask me. The band has shown what their competitors OAG of Malaysia and Tahta of Indonesia lacked: versatility. They performed two completely different tracks, a heavy rock-induced “Invitation” and a reggae-ish “One Look.”

Again, congrats to Kjwan and Vina for making our country proud!

Keyword to Philippines performers is SOUL. Vina and KJWAN did not only have musicality but delivered a soulful, total performance! I almost lost it when I heard Indonesia’s Jaclyn Victor. But then, in my heart, hearing Vina’s Pangako and I Can Feel, I knew we were on track! Galeng ng PINOY sa feelings and perfect combination! Congrats to VINA and KJWAN!

Jaclyn is from Malaysia. There was huge pressure on her to win the competition because she’s huge in Malaysia, so maybe that explains the sad face. Vina was very wise in choosing the “Pangako Sa Iyo” song, we were all jumping like crazy baboons when she started singing. Haha! Congrats Philippines!

Si Vina nanalo? Mabuhay ang mga babaeng macho!

But seeing from the comments here, she seemed to have fared well. And so did Kjwan. (me record na ba sila?)

Kongratchen Corbett to all!

@ Goddess – Korek Mare! Sweep kung sweep ang drama!

@ bogabon – Aba, akala ko ako lang ang nakapanood! hehe…

@ Totoy Vivo – Actually, kahit nga ako akalang mananalo si Jaclyn. Pero Mama…mali ang hula nila!!!

@ Pageman – Yeah! Reprezent baby!

@ Mamabit – Although Jaclyn’s performance was great, there were some instances that you find her pitchy (oh, and the “mic on the forehead” thing…you know we Pinoys are aware that’s cheating).

@ Hestia – I so expect Vina to sing “Pangako Sa ‘Yo”, but I was concerned when she sang her dance track. But then again, Vina proved she’s a great performer!

@ Ruff – Bakla, wala ka namang masyadong na-miss. ‘Di mo rin mage-gets ang koda ng host.

@ Raymond Lee Quijano – Ika nga ni Bella Flores, magaling magaling magaling!

@ Kiks – Ibig bang sabihin nito aangat na rin ang karir ng Maskulados? Ay! Disbanded na nga pala ‘yun!

@ Blue Harajuku – Naku, si Mare, may pangarap!
