The Final 1: Contest for popularity, not the best singer?

Many viewers were angered that contestants Kamsani Jumahat and Hydir Idris ranked among the bottom five of this week's The Final 1 TV singing contest, saying that the competition has turned into a "popularity contest" as opposed to one that susses out real singing talents.

Results for the show are based purely on public voting system via SMS, telephone or Facebook, while the judges' opinions bear no weight.
