Dayang Nurfaizah binti Awang Dowty, better known as Dayang Nurfaizah, (born July 20, 1981 in Kuching, Sarawak) is a Malaysian singer. Dayang recorded her first album with the title Dayang Nurfaizah which was released in May 1999 mainly of the Pop and R&B genre. The album's first single Hakikat Cinta introduced Dayang to the local music industry.
Her biggest task up then, to mark her 5th year in the Malaysian music industry, was to set up her own recording company, DN & AD Entertainment Sdn Bhd. Under its banner, in 31 October 2004 she released her fourth studio album, Dayang Sayang Kamu, which was received with rave reviews from the Malaysian public as well as neighbouring countries.
In 2006, she participated in One in a Million, a singing competition hosted by Malaysian local television station 8TV. She ended up as one of the top four in the competition but was voted out by the Malaysian public on September 15, 2006, as the competition was determined by a 50% text message voting system. The recording industry was shocked over Dayang's participation in One in a Million. Dayang's participation received many mixed reviews from various parties including the media suggesting that Dayang should give the opportunity to new talents because she already has an established position in the local music industry. During the competition, Dayang showed her off her singing capabilities with the R&B genre, infusing the music with her own style and no one captured the essence of her style better than one of the One in a Million judges, Paul Moss where he called Dayang the "Booty Shaking Funky Hot Diva".
Unfortunately, Dayang was voted out during the Top 4 show when she got the highest vote out amongst the top four participants. Dayang's elimination was the most shocking elimination in the history of Malaysia's reality TV and received coverage by all local newspapers and was a hot topic of debate discussed heavily online.
