KUALA LUMPUR: Radio singing contest Fly FM Flydol: Sing It To Win It has found its two finalists, and they are Hashmitha and Ronnie.
The duo were announced as finalists today following the unexpected double elimination of contestants Melissa and Helmie on the third week of the contest.

The elimination of Melissa and Helmie came in the first round of voting, which began at 10am last Monday after their songs were premiered by announcers Hafiz and Guibo and closed at 6pm last Thursday.
Listeners determined 60 per cent of their marks while the remainder was in the hands of the judges who comprised Fly FM’s head of programming Shiva Ruppeni, Fly FM music director Navin Rishal, AIM winner and vocal coach Vince Chong and Paperplane Pursuit lead singer John O.
