Sandra: Hitting the high notes and making sure to get the lyrics right.

Ezli: What worries you the most about doing this song?

Sandra: That i’ll screw up and freeze on stage.

Ezli: What do you think of other contestant performance?

Sandra: I enjoyed most of it… I really think everyone did their best.

Ezli: Who’s the closest challenger of the entire competition?

Ezli: Are you surprise when they announce as the Runner Up for Karaoke Solo Category?

Sandra: VERY! Hahaha…

Ezli: After you watched the recorded performance of yourself at Animangaki, do you wish to change anything to make it better or perfect?

Sandra: I can’t tell because my work schedule is pretty irregular. So i’d consider myself lucky for being able to join any one of the future competitions.
