Anugerah Industri Muzik (AIM) or Music Industry Awards is one of the most prestigious music award ceremonies in Malaysia. It’s basically our equivalent to the Grammy Awards in the US. Last night (Sunday, 12th September), fans got to enjoy some amazing performances by the biggest names in music as well as witnessing their favourite artists winning one or multiple awards for their craft.
Speaking of performances, not every artist will admit they’ve done something wrong on stage. Most would just say they’ve done their best and leave it at that so it takes a lot of guts to admit and apologise for your mistakes. Janna Nick took to her Instagram to address her pitch-perfect performance last night which netizens found highly suspicious.
Actress and singer Janna Nick had the privilege to be one of the performers for the AIM 2022 ceremony last night. The 27-year-old performed her single “Gatal” which was released on 28th June and became a global hit that even K-pop artist Psy participated in her “Gatal” TikTok challenge. Unfortunately for the singer, netizens noticed that she was actually lip-syncing.
The singer posted a video on her Instagram last night after her performance to apologise for disgracing the award show for lip-syncing instead of singing live. In the caption, she explained her reason for doing so. She first stated that she was honored to be invited to perform for the prestigious award ceremony but unfortunately, she lost her voice due to overworking herself.
Prior to the award show, the “Lockdown 2” star, who was advised to rest after recovering from Influenza, resumed filming for “Melastik Ke Hatimu 2” and did a performance in Indonesia and Singapore which took a toll on her health and thus lost her voice in the process. Celebrity friends and fans commented on Janna’s post, wishing for her speedy recovery and comforted her by saying that she’s done her best.
While Janna could’ve easily cancelled her performance, she still made an effort in getting her voice back and performed at the award show despite knowing the consequences. In related news, the singer won the award for Best Music Video category for her song “Gatal” at last night’s music event.
