Recap: Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 October 3, 2015

It’s Saturday night! For me, it means the time to watch my Saturday night habit and I know many Filipinos do with this top-rating program, Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2.

Tonight, five artists did the challenge again and performed impersonating five icons assigned to them. To start the show, one of the most anticipated every week was Melai Cantiveros’ impersonation. This week, she impersonated Philippines’ King of Talk, Boy Abunda. She should have done it last week when Abunda was a guest judge.

The first performer this week was Eric Nicolas as rapper Pitbull. He looks exactly like Pitbull and he did very well with rapping. He admitted he don’t really rap but he did a good try. The voice was quite raspy but it’s still a good performance.

Denise Laurel had a great performance tonight. She looks exactly like R&B singer Ne-Yo with the sonb closer. She sang it well despite the difficulty for a woman to sing like a man. The movements of Ne-Yo was also done well. One thing I just noticed negatively. The suit looks big for her. However, I think Denise had the best performance for tonight.

After being at the top 2 for three weeks, it seems Sam Concepcion would be out from that position this week. He did good copying Rey Valera but not the best.

Comedian Kakai Bautista went OPM through Donna Cruz impersonation. The face doesn’t look Donna but the voice and dance moves was spot on.

Tonight’s last performer was Myrtle Sarosa as the iconic Hollywood star Marilyn Monroe. She did good but her movements were quite limited and without grace. The voice needs a little higher to sound Marilyn. The looks was superb and she looked very beautiful. Among all the judges’ comments, I agree the most with Jed Madela.

With all the performances, check my ranking for tonight:

1. Denise Laurel

2. Eric Nicolas

3. Kakai Bautista

4. Sam Concepcion

5. Myrtle Sarosa

The winner for this week will be announced tomorrow after the three performances of remaining artists.

 

Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 currently airs on ABS-CBN 2 every Saturday and Sunday night.

 

Recap: Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 September 27, 2015

It’s Sunday night and the winner for this week in Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 was already announced. Last night has been a great episode, with good and not-so-good performances. The five performers last night were KZ Tandingan as Bob Marley, Michael Pangilinan as Nick Jonas, Myrtle Sarosa as Armida Siguion Reyna, Kakai Bautista as Sheena Easton and Eric Nicolas as Bayani Agbayani.

Tonight, three artists performed which was started by Sam Concepcion who had the most difficult impersonation for the week as Janet Jackson. For a guy who will sing like a man and at the same time dance like a woman, that was very difficult. Good thing the old Janet Jackson did masculine dance moves unlike the latest when she went sensual. Among all the performances this week, he’s the best.

Denise Laurel performed as Alicia Keys with “Girl on Fire”. It was a good performance despite ¬†Alicia Keys was known without too much movements. It also shown Denise’s musical talent.

The last performance has been Kean Cipriano who impersonated Philippines’ King of Movies, the late Fernando Poe, Jr. It turned out as a tribute which can be respected despite a so-so performance.

My rank based on the performances of the artists were:

1. Sam Concepcion

2. Michael Pangilinan

3. Denise Laurel

4. Kakai Bautista

5. Kean Cipriano

6. Myrtle Sarosa

7. Eric Nicolas

8. KZ Tandingan

With the judges ranking the artists, I disagree with Sharon Cuneta with ranking the first place, but the remaining was fine. Boy Abunda did the right ranking while Gary Valenciano has always been messed up in giving his ranking, though his top position is okay.

Based on the judges and the artists choices, the results were:

1. Kean Cipriano

2. Sam Concepcion

3. Michael Pangilinan

4. Denise Laurel

5. Kakai Bautista

6. Eric Nicolas

7. Myrtle Sarosa

8. KZ Tandingan

It was already announced who the artists are going to impersonate. It was surely another fun episode next week and let’s see who will Melai going to impersonate.

 

Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 airs on Saturday night after MMK and Sunday night after Rated K on ABS-CBN 2.
