Finally, the top 24 was finally completed last night. It does mean that Round 1 is over. Tonight, Round 2 will start. However, before the performances, the top 24 were grouped to visit places assigned to them and try to enjoy for an adventure.
The first group were brought to Davao where they had fun. They went for an adventure like white water rafting which Sumner tried and ate the very popular fruit, Durian.
Sumner Mahassey first performed tonight. He sang Daniel Padilla’s “Simpleng Tulad Mo”. His score for tonight from the judges was 91.67.
Reece Rostedt went out for zipline. He’s obviously scared and conquered his fear.
Reece sang the song “Kay Kristo Lang”. The song was translated to Tagalog from its original language. His score was 86.67.
The group also went to Crocodile Park. Fathin was given a chance to feed the crocodiles.
Fathin had a powerful performance tonight. She performed the song “Paano” by Dolce. She sang it well which all the judges gave her a standing ovation. Her score was 96.33. Because of that, Reece was bumped off as only two will advance for the next round.
The group finally went for a massage. But it was a snake massage. Naisa have no idea what it was until he foudn out it is a big snake on his back.
Naisa performed the song “Ikot Ikot” by Sarah Geronimo. He nailed the song and had the judges had a hard time with their decision. Because of his outstanding performance, his score was 93.67. That was enough for him to bump off Sumner. The two were bestfriends so it is hard for them to see someone leave.
