Akademi Fantasia, Season 8 is the eighth season of Akademi Fantasia to be aired in Astro Ria which premiered on 13 March 2010. The professional trainers for this season were announced in a press conference for media which took place in Hilton Hotel, Kuala Lumpur on 8 February 2010. In the ceremony, Norman Abdul Halim was revealed to be the Principal for this season, while Sarimah Ibrahim and Jimmy Shanley were selected as the new hosts replacing AC Mizal.[1]

The eight season saw a new change to the format of the show. Instead of eliminating a student at the end of each concert, the elimination process was conducted in a new 30-minute segment called Debaran Akademi Fantasia, which was conducted by Sarimah Ibrahim.[2]

The final concert was broadcast live in high definition technology, an Akademi Fantasia first, which was accessible for Astro B.yond subscribers in Channel 124 through Astro.[3][4]

The winner was 21-year-old Ahmad Shahir bin Zawawi from Kampar, Perak. He made history for being the first student to win the title after being re-entered into the competition through AFMASUK following his elimination in Week 7.[5][6]

As many as 3.75 million votes were cast the entire season.[7]

Auditions[edit]

Auditions were held in the following cities:[8]

List of songs during auditions[edit]

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.
