As the sun goes up, it was like giving us another day and another hope. It gives us smile that we live with another day. Nice to hear some songs with sun as mostly were positive. In this list, includes songs with “sunshine” as it also refers to “sun”.

If you are in such a difficult situation, instead staying in darkness, why not go out and escape and enjoy a pocketful of “sunshine” that can light up your day. This song was made a successful top 5 entry in Billboard Hot 100.

Recap: Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2 (December 5, 2015)

The competition is going intense likewise the performances is getting harder for the celebrity impersonators. Tonight has been an interesting episode. When I first heard about the celebs doing a duet with themselves, I thought they will perform like doble-kara (double face). But when I watched all the performances tonight, I was in awe. I think the other artist was first recorded while the other artist they impersonated was the main one.

To start the show, Melai Cantiveros came back as Miley Cyrus, the impersonation that had her won during the first season.

Here are the performances of the celebrity impersonators:

KZ Tandingan as Liza Minelli and Luciano Pavarotti
“New York, New York”
The performance was amazing. She sang very well as Liza but we cannot expect a perfect Pavarotti as she was female. As Liza, she is very comfortable and enjoyed the performance. Her vocals as Liza is even perfect.

Michael Pangilinan as Sam Smith and John Legend
“Lay Me Down”
Among all the performances tonight, this is, for me, is the perfect performance. I mean his voice as Sam Smith and John Legend is perfect. No more words to say about the performance.

Denise Laurel as Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett
“The Lady is a Tramp”
Denise became a jazz singer and she did it perfectly as Lady Gaga. While the Tony Bennett performance is very impressive like how she can sound like that. I saw no pressure in this performance and Denise looked relaxed.

Kakai Bautista as Whitney Houston and Cissy Houston
“I Knew Him So Well”
Kakai did mother and daughter duet as Whitney and Cissy Houston. This can be a difficult performance since it is an emotional song but she did it well. In fact, she sang even better as Cissy.

Kean Cipriano as Paul McCartney and Stevie Wonder
“Ebony and Ivory”
I never thought Kean can pull the impersonation so well. Though there are flaws as Stevie Wonder but Paul McCartney was perfect from the looks to his vocals.

Admittedly, it is the episode which I enjoyed all of the performances. Of course, the set-up and idea is good but all of the performers did very well. Even myself, I find it hard to rank them (which will surely make it difficult for the judges to rank them too) but I made the ranking below based on every performances effect on me.
1. Michael Pangilinan
2. Denise Laurel
3. KZ Tandingan
4. Kakai Bautista
5. Kean Cipriano

Since it is the last performances from the celebrities, it is becoming more interesting. With three more performers tomorrow, the top 4 will be announced tomorrow by which next week will be the finale.

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