Season 9 (GV9) Gegar Vaganza Champion Jaclyn Victor expresses her gratitude for her win on Sunday, November 27, during The final showdown, which was held at the auditorium of Shah Alam Municipal Council.
Malaysian Idol, Jaclyn, 43, who is popular through the song Gemilang beat five other contestants namely Shila Amzah, Tomok, Bob Yusof, V.E group, and Hazrul Nizam, and together taking home RM100,000 in cash, a trophy by Astro, and a vacation to Paris. “I haven’t thought of any other plans yet, but for now, what is certain is that I want to share the money for my two children as savings for their future”, said the GV9 champion.
The jury panel, Datuk Ramli MS, said that the singer who scored 85.6 percent deserved to win the title because she managed to give the best performance in both the solo and battle segments. Jaclyn took the challenge and sang ‘It’s All Coming Back to Me Now’ originally sung by Celine Dion and ‘The Real Slim Shady’ (Eminem) and ‘Sang Saka Biru’ (Joe Flizzow, Alyph, Altimet, and Sonaone) in a rap round with the group V.E.
According to Malaysiakini, Jaclyn needs enough time to rest before resuming her career as a singer. She also said throughout the duration of GV9 she gave her all to the preparation of the show and had to sacrifice time with her children. Jaclyn would like to spend this break with both angels, Jonah Joshiah Rivera, 7, and Molly Marguerita Rivera, 5.
All the hard work of competing for 11 weeks was worth it and paid off when she has crowned the GV9 champion.
Congratulations Jaclyn Victor on this amazing success of yours!
