Dance music is the most common genre today. That’s why there are lots of songs and collaborations between DJs/producers and singers. Here are some of the best dance hits of the year.

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.
