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
7. Eric Nicolas
8. Sam Concepcion

Based on the judges votes and all the artists’ votes, here’s the final result for this week.
1. Michael Pangilinan

3. Myrtle Sarosa
4. Kakai Bautista
5. Kean Cipriano
6. Denise Laurel
7. Sam Concepcion
8. Eric Nicolas
Congrats to Michael for winning this weeks’s episode. It seems next weelk would be fun and entertaining too.

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 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.
