Top 12 male semi-finalists sang their heart out on stage in tonight’s show.
Ryan Agoncillo, who looks nice in pink, is Philippine Idol’s host. MrC (Ryan Cayabyab), Mamita (Pilita Corales) and FM (Francis Magallona) are the judges who will be booed every now and then. Philippine Idol, here we go!
Freddie Cabael - Macho Guapito (FREDDIE 2339/ 1 908 5 IDOL 01). Nah. I heard this song performed better in a karaoke bar. Sorry. I really don’t like it. During his auditions, he sang Gary Valenciano songs. Maybe he wants to show some flexibility with his song choices but hey, stick with your own genre. Don’t risk it dude. Not during the semi’s.
Robert Bernadas - Take A Look Inside Your Heart (ROBERT 2339/ 1 908 5 IDOL 02). Wow! I really love his song for tonight. But what’s with FM’s comment about his dimples? Hahaha. Cebuano’s will definitely vote for him.
Ken Dingle - More Today Than Yesterday (KEN 2339/ 1 908 5 IDOL 03). Errr… Will he record this song for Ayala Mall’s latest commercial?
Drae Ibanez - What You Won’t Do For Love (DRAE 2339/ 1 908 5 IDOL 04). Love it. I just love it. He’ll definitely make it to top 12. Top 11. Top 10. Top 4. Top 2? VOTE FOR DRAE!
Onyx Culala - Windmills of Your Mind (ONYX 2339/ 1 908 5 IDOL 05). Maybe he needs to go back to law school. Or poetry reading. “As a philosophy major, I like to think.” Huh? This ain’t philiosophy class. This is a singing competition.
Gian Magdangal - Footloose (GIAN 2339/ 1 908 5 IDOL 06). 17:28’s former member. A theater actor. No doubt that he can perform on stage. Footloose, footloose!
Ramirr Grepo - Bed of Roses (RAMIRR 2339/ 1 908 5 IDOL 07). The rocker idol. Well, yeah, of course Francis M likes him. He’s not bad. I’ll give him 6 weeks in this competition.
Miguel Mendoza - Highways of My Life (MIGUEL 2339/ 1 908 5 IDOL 08). Falsetto gone wrong? He'll get to top 12 of course. He got the looks. And he's from DLSU. I just hope he'll do better next week.
Reymond Sojor - Tell Her About It (RAYMOND 2339/ 1 908 5 IDOL 09). What the eff happenned to his microphone? They gave him another mic, but it's not working. ABC5? What the eff happenned? But he's a good sport, he sang again... But i don't like it. LOL
Joseph Astor - Why Can’t It Be (JOSEPH 2339/ 1 908 5 IDOL 10). I lobe his song as well. Second to DRAE’s performance. Yeah, he kinda looks like Piolo Pascual. So he’ll definitely get the female votes.
Christian Masaga – Have I Told You Lately (CHRISTIAN 2339/ 1 908 5 IDOL 11). What’s with the intro… hahahaha. He changed the song to a Christian song. But he can definitely sing.
Jan Nieto - Bridge Over Troubled Water (JAN 2339/ 1 908 5 IDOL 12). Steph’s bet for Philippine Idol (he's from UNILEVER). Sorry. I don't like his song. This song is for granny's. And i don't see my lola voting for him. She's sleeping already. Harhar! Good voice, bad song choice.
The 3 judges love Ramirr's performance (huh?). Mr C also loves Gian's Footloose ala Broadway production. I wish Simon is here to whip the judges' asses. The 3 judges ain't doing anything but just to sugar coat each performance. I'm not that disappointed with Mr C, he gave some valid comments. As for Ryan's hosting job, he's really great! As for his co-host (why the eff does Philippine Idol need a co-host?), Heart Evangelista might be on air in the next couple of weeks. Argh!
Next week, I hope to get good recordings. Still fixing the audio set-up.
