Akademi Fantasia, Season 9 is the ninth as well as the final season of Akademi Fantasia to be aired in Astro Ria which premiered on April 2, 2011. Aznil Haji Nawawi is appointed as the host of this season, after being a permanent judge in Season 8.[1] The professional trainers as well as twelve students of this season were revealed in a press conference which took place in ÆON malls in Malaysia| ÆON AU2, Setiawangsa.[2] On April 2, 2011, Amy Search was revealed to be the Principal for this season during Konsert Tirai Akademi Fantasia.[3]

It was also announced that this season will be the last season of Akademi Fantasia which was confirmed by Azlin Reza Azmi, the Manager of Astro Ria channel.[4]

On June 12, 2011, Hazama Ahmad Azmi was crowned the winner of the ninth season of Akademi Fantasia. This season attracted the lowest reception of votes in the history of Akademi Fantasia, with 3.74 million votes cast.[5]

Changes from Season 8

Several new formats were also implemented in this season. For instance, the location for Diari Akademi Fantasia was disclosed which is at ÆON AU2, Setiawangsa. Students undergo their daily routine as a student of Akademi Fantasia in the second floor of the shopping complex for public viewing. This change is a departure from the previous eight seasons where the location for Diari Akademi Fantasia was not revealed.[6]

Operasi Gugur

The second change in Akademi Fantasia format is the implementation of Operasi Gugur. In this format, students with the least improvement would be expelled by the professional trainers in order to give an opportunity for new students to join the academy. The announcement was made at the end of the second concert in Season 9 on April 16, 2011.[7][8]

Immunity

Another change in Akademi Fantasia format is the introduction of an immunity system where the professional trainers would be given the power to exercise a veto on a student to spare him or her from elimination for that particular week.[9] The immunity system, which consisted of 50% public voting from the audience and another 50% from a unanimous decision made by the professional trainers, was used in the eight concert of this season. The recipient of this system would advance automatically to the final concert without having to perform in the ninth concert.[10] The new format change was revealed at the end of the sixth concert on May 14, 2011.

Auditions

Auditions were held in the following cities:[4]

In addition to the above cities, for the first time contestants were allowed to audition via online.[4] To audition, they were required to upload audition clip of them singing a pre-approved song in YouTube. Then, they were required to submit their application form together with their video link. The internet auditioners were called back in order to go through the second stage until the fourth stage of the audition.[11] Contestants were required to be between the ages of 18 to 45, and are Malaysian and Singaporean citizens who are not embedded with recording or management contracts.

On February 18, 2011, forty semi-finalists were revealed as the candidates of Akademi Fantasia. Nevertheless, only twenty-five semi-finalists were selected to move on to the next round which was determined through public voting via online and based on professional jury.[12] The online voting commenced on February 18, 2011, and ended on March 8, 2011.[13] The twelve finalists who made it into the academy were revealed in a press conference which took place in ÆON AU2, Setiawangsa.[2]
