Last night, four artists impersonated four legendary artists. Sam Concepcion rapped Slim Shady, Eminem. Myrtle Sarosa as 2NE1’s Sandara Park, while KZ Tandingan did Vina Morales and Kakai Bautista as Australian singer, songwriter and producer, Sia.
Tonight, another set of four artists performed. Actress Denise Laurel was unexpectedly a good performer. She did an emulation of Latina singer and actress Jennifer Lopez. It was almost perfect as she got Jen’s voice except the body. The performance was followed by singer Michael Pangilinan acted out as George Michael’s huge hit “Careless Whisper”. Rocker and Callalily’s vocalist Kean Cipriano became a pop star as One Direction’s Harry Styles. The finale performer was comedian Eric Nicolas who had shown his Willie Revillame impersonation.
The first week’s winner ended up was Eric Nicolas who was cheered by the audience. All of the 3 judges voted for him and majority of the celebrity performers as well.
Based on the accumulated scores, here’s the ranking of the performers:
1. Eric Nicolas as Willie Revillame
2. Sam Concepcion as Eminem
3. Kakai Bautista as Sia Furler
4. Kean Cipriano as Harry Styles of One Direction
5. Denise Laurel as Jennifer Lopez
6. Myrtle Sarosa as Sandara Park of 2NE1
7. KZ Tandingan as Vina Morales (tie)
8. Michael Pangilinan as George Michael (tie)
So far, the ranking was okay except Kean and Denise. I think Denise did better as what she did is more difficult. Nevertheless, it is a good start for the show.
Each of the 8 artist seemed doing their comfort zones next week when the artists they’re going to copy were according to their tastes and style. Excited to see their performances next week. Can the winner this week attain his position? Or somebody will take the victory?
By the way, last season’s winner Melai will do her weekly impersonation that’s surely an anticipation for viewers.
Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 was aired by ABS-CBN every Saturday and Sunday night.
