Singapore Top 24 : Jannah Shaharuddin

In The Shower with :
Jannah Shaharuddin
(nickname : Diva)

Jannah describes herself as Vivacious, Funny and Wise. I can attest to the 2nd word. Jannah isn't just run-of-the-mill funny, she's comedy-queen-on-a-roll funny. You can always rely on her to break awkward silences with her great sense of humour.

Quick facts about Jannah :
Lives in : East
Occupation : Student
Favourite MJ song : Human Nature
Favourite Judge : Ken
Single/Attached? : To which she replied, "Single and SO ready to mingle!" (Laugh-a-minute I tell you!)

Who does he think will win Idol 3? Frances.

If music is your first love, what is your second?
Apart from music, fashion is my passion. I think fashion is an extension of one's personality. I do my own sketches and I doodle a lot. My friends call me 'The Queen of Cheap' (I prefer Thrift Queen!) because I looove thrift store shopping and I always love a good bargain (typical Sporean right?Haha!).

I feel flattered being nominated for 'Best Fashion' on Idol's online voting contest recently. Growing up, I was taught to make the most of what I have. None of my performance outfits (from head to toe) costs more than $50! No joke. I also enjoy giving my friends/cousin free make overs.... I feel good when I make others feel good about themselves.

Secret Single Behaviour : What do you do on your own that no one knows about?
When I'm eating a burger, I prefer to eat it layer by layer. From the top.. the bun, lettuce/cheese, then the patty itself, and lastly the bun at the bottom. It's weird, but I enjoy it much more that way! <-- that IS weird! Isn't the point of the burger that you bite into all parts at a go to get that all round taste?

I also like to eat petai with burger or pizza.(omg yuck! petai on its own is enough to kill ya! LOL!) During boot camp, when we were eating BK (sponsored makan! woot!) the others were so shocked!!! Especially Justin, the look on his face was priceless man! <-- what did you do? whip out petai from your handbag to add to your BK burger??

summerr's take :
She isn't really a diva. She just has a big personality and a husky voice, and does the whole diva act - for laughs. I like Jannah, she always makes me laugh and is always trying to put people at ease.

She and other best friend Maressa were forced to go their separate ways in the end, and looking at that now, perhaps it was Jannah's personality that gave her that slight edge over her friend.

A total livewire, Jannah still has some work to do ff she's going to survive this show, she needs to first sort out some of her diction lapses. Apart from that, vocally, I'd say she has great vocals.

Check out this video of her from YouTube. In typical Jannah fashion, she's crackin' jokes at her own expense all the way.

But jokes aside I thoroughly enjoyed the first song and thought she did it well.

Her online links are at the bottom of this post. Go be a fan!

Not enough? Need to see/hear Jannah for yourself....

  1. Her voice is quite power house. This video is not bad. All the best!

    but why does she keep wearing those shinny clothes with prints that look like a table cloth ?? I think she looks nice in black in this video.

  2. agreed. didi you see her in the theatre show with that shinny blue print thing. Ken should call her the table cloth not the other girl hahaha

  3. ok la. That's just styling which can be changed. She sounds good in the vids here. All the best sista ! :)

  4. summerr tat pic of jannah is very misleading. she's actually ugly in real life. too much makeup. and, once ur out of idol stay out of idol. don't act like you were robbed of sumthing, wen actuali not enuf fans voted fer u & e judges din wan u also.

  5. What do "anonymous" have against jannah? You MUST be a girl. I've seen Jannah around my home area and she's got such a huge heart for every1 around her. I suggest you think twice. Cyber bullying isn't cool. The happiest girls are always the prettiest.. and honey, YOU are the ugly one.

  6. anonymous no.1 came off as jealous more than anything. so obvious!! anonymous no.2, i agree wif u.

    in my opinion, a lot of the top 24 has been robbed their chances to be in the top 13. not only Jannah. seems like the new format is based on who the judges/producers want to win.. not Singapore. it has always been like that but it's getting too obvious now.

    Jannah, you're a nice girl n u left the show on a high note. good 4 u!
