Finale: Your Face Sounds Familiar 2

The time has come for the winner of the second season of Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2 to be announced. All the five celebrities has already performed last night which was a great night as it was like a concert of five icons.

The show was started with performances of the three judges, Gary Valenciano, Jed Madela and Sharon Cuneta singing different Christmas songs. After commercial break, three celebrities who did not make it to the finals performed as sibling trio BeeGees singing different hits for the iconic group. The judges gave good judgment with the performance as well as motivational worda for the three.

The Top 5 celebrities performed again in 30 seconds of their performance last night. The performance tonight was almost the same with last night’s performance and my judgment was the same. It serves as the last look for voters to give their votes who really deserves to be the winner.

Some video clips was shown too by which the celebrities are giving the money they won from episodes to the charities chosen by them as donations. The show and the artists really have been a big help to these charity organizations.

With regards to prizes, the four runners-up will receive PhP 200,000 while the winner will receive a hefty PhP 2 million.

Now, the ranking and winner was announced.

Fifth place was given to Kean Cipriano. I think he deserves that position because of a poor performance. In my ranking last night, he’s at fifth as well.

Fourth place was KZ Tandingan. I expected KZ to be on the top 3 because of an excellent performance last nighy by which I put him at second.

Third place was Sam Concepcion. It is still a good place for him though. Last night, he was at fourth in my ranking.

Second place was Michael Pangilinan. I expected him to be the winner but still a good place.

The winner was Denise Laurel. I still think she deserves it. CONGRATULATIONS!

Recap: Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2 November 8, 2015

The second episode of Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2 this week had just ended and the winner this week was finally annannounce. Last night, five artists already performed with three more remaining artists who had shown their impersonation tonight.

Kean Cipriano as Robi Rosa of Menudo
For the second time, Kean became another member of a boyband. The first one was when he portrayed Harry Styles of British and Irish boyband One Direction. This week, he impersonated Latin boyband Menudo member Robi Rosa. The performance is just light and the movements and dances was good. However, the voice isnnot perfect and the looks was like Indian version of Robi Rosa.

Michael Pangilinan as Bono of U2
Micharl became the vocalist of the biggest Irish band ever, U2. He sang the signature hit of U2 which is “With or Without You”, which he surprisingly sang it well. It doesn’t matter if the looks is not the same but the singing is for me, perfect.

Eric Nicolas as Jet Pangan of The Dawn
Eric is a rock star tonight as he copied Filipino rock icon and vocalist of The Dawn, Jet Pangan. His voice hit the spot the movements isn’t Jet Pangan. His looks bothered me too as he looks like Willie Revillame. I still find it a great performance though.

Now that all of the artists already performed, I made my list with ranking of all the performers.
1. Myrtle Sarosa
2. Michael Pangilinan
3. KZ Tandingan
4. Kakai Bautista
5. Denise Laurel
6. Kean Cipriano

Recap: Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2 November 7, 2015

A usual Saturday for me since tonight airs another episode of Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2. The show just camera quite late due to the finale episodes of Pinoy Big Brother and that the grand winners were already announced.

The show started with the impersonation of Melai Cantiveros as actres, formerly recording artist and Batangas Governor Vilma Santos. Everybody laughed as she’s entered. She’s always nailing it doing her impersonation.

Here are the five performers tonight:

Denise Laurel as Gloria Estefan
Denise had gone Latina tonight as the Queen of Latin Music Gloria Estefan. The song “Conga” was quite difficult to sing due to its fast paced chorus. She did a good job but it’s quite obvious that she is trying to chase the music which she came first before she should. The look though was perfect even just make up without prosthetics. I still find it a fun performance especially in stanzas and the way she duplicated Gloria’s moves.

KZ Tandingan asTina Turner
It maybe the second time that Tina Turner was impersonated but with different songs. During the first season, Nyoy Volante copied her with the song “Proud Mary” while this time, KZ sang “What’s Love Got to Do With It”. The performance was great from vocals to gestures and facial expressions. The performance ended up with standing ovation from Jed Madela and Sharon Cuneta.

Myrtle Sarosa as Britney Spears
Myrtle turned into the pop princess then, Britney Spears. She sang and danced “I’m a Slave for You” , which she performed pretty well from her voice, choreography and with that snake stuff which Britney did during the VMA’s. Even Britney fans will surely like the performance.

Sam Concepcion as Mandy Moore
Sam again became a woman as young singer then Mandy Moore. It was good but not as I expected. He did very well when he became Janet Jackson but this performance was quite mediocre. The makeup to her eyes is also lacking, as well as her lips which is one of her identifying marks.

Kakai Bautista as Eva Eugenio
After doing well last week as Eva Eugenio, Kakai turned into jukebox singer Eva Eugenio. It seems she is doing consitently as she almost duplicated Eva Eugenio from vocals to her looks.

My rankind for tonight’s perfornances were:
1. Myrtle Sarosa
2. KZ Tandingan
3. Kakai Bautista
4. Denise Laurel
5. Sam Concepcion

Three more artists will perform tomorrow as well as the winner this week.

Your Face Sounds Famiiar Season 2 airs on ABS-CBN 2 every Saturday and Sunday night.

Recap: Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 October 31, 2015

Time for the recap of tonight’s episode of Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2. Since it’s October 31, the episode is actually the Halloween special of the show and to start the show, a creepy creature came out of the iconator. It’s Chucky, the killing doll. It’s the impersonation of the ever-funny Melai Cantiveros. In fairness, she looks very creepy and every time she was focused on the frame, it creeps me up. Tonight, there were five performers again and they were below.

Kakai Bautista as Jennifer Holiday
Kakai started the show with a bang as the iconic performer of “Dreamgirls” musical, Jennifer Holiday. Initially, I thought she may pull it through knowing the song “And I Am Telling You” requires a very strong throat and she did it. Even the looks is close to perfection. The two judges, Sharon Cuneta and Jed Madela, eventually gave her a standing ovation while Gary Valenciano had his hands down in owe.

Eric Nicolas as Claire dela Fuente
Eric went female and jukebox queen as he impersonated Jukebox Queen Claire dela Fuente. The looks is perfect and his movements are really Claire. The voice really equated Claire’s voice. Eric really did a great job again.

Michael Pangilinan as Haji Alejandro
Michael impersonated Pinoy singer Haji Alejandro tonight. He did well in the performance but there’s lacking substance and with the judging, I agree with all they said. One of Haji’s identifying mark is his distinct vibrato which was shorted in Michael’s performance.

Myrtle Sarosa as Kuh Ledesma
Myrtle becomes a diva as she did her take as Kuh Ledesma. I think it’s her best performance since the recent episodes. The gestures was done well and the voice was really comparable to Kuh.

Kean Cipriano as Anthony Kiedis of Red Hot Chilli Peppers
Kean returned to his roots as rock star through impersonating Anthony Kiedis of hit rock band Red Hot Chilli Peppers. The judges are all praises for the performance but there’s lacking in copying Anthony’s voice. The looks is even far from Anthony’s, though the movements are perfect.

So far, tonight’s episode is a blast after starting with a bang. My ranking for tonight’s performances were:
1. Kakai Bautista
2. Eric Nicolas
3. Myrtle Sarosa
4. Kean Cipriano
5. Michael Pangilinan

Meanwhile, three more artists will perform and the announcement o winners will be tomorrow.

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

Recap: Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 October 24, 2015

After a week of failing to watch last week’s episode due to strong typhoon, I am back to writing the recap for this week. I may be writing about last week after streaming. Anyway, tonight may be another great episode of Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2.

To start the show, of course, Melai Cantiveros is back for her weekly impersonation. This week, she’s the ABS-CBN News reporter Doris Bigornia. Funny how she stole the beginning of the show from host Billy Crawford.

Here are the five performers for tonight’s episode:
Kean Cipriano as Jose Mari Chan
Kean turned into a balladeer as he acted as iconic Filipino balladeer Jose Mari Chan. He sang one of Chan’s signature song “Beautiful Girl” which even had 3 beauty queens onstage: MJ Lastimosa, Bea Rose Santiago, and Mutya Datul. His look slightly looked like Chan while the singing was done lower than Chan’s voice.

Myrtle Sarosa as Nicole Scherzinger of Pussycat Dolls
Myrtle went sexy this time as Nicole Scherzinger of girl group Pussycat Dolls. The performance is good, and I think she needs more moves. So far, she copied Nicole too close.

KZ Tandingan as Lolita Carbon
KZ went folk rock as Lolita Carbon singing a very iconic OPM song “Himig ng Pag-Ibig”. It is very close and the voice is very soothing. Though Lolita’s voice is slightly pitchy than KZ, it is still a very good performance.

Michael Pangilinan as Tracy Chapman
Michael turned into a female singer tonight as folk pop singer Tracy Chapman. It wouldn’t be that hard to act as Tracy since Tracy is quite musculine. By the way her voice is very distinct and it can be understood if Michael do not exactly copied Tracy’s vocals.

Denise Laurel as Jed Madela
Denise had the most difficult task as she is assigned to do Jed Madela, who is one of the judges. It is not exactly Jed but the effort can really be felt. Even the judges gave her a standing ovation.

Tonight’s episode had just wrapped up and the winner will be announced tomorrow after three more performers. By the way I made my own ranking for tonight which was listed below.
1. Denise Laurel
2. KZ Tandingan
3. Myrtle Sarosa
4. Kean Cipriano
5. Michael Pangilinan

Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 airs on Saturdays and Sundays on ABS-CBN 2.

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.
