Recap: Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2 November 14, 2015

It was quite late again for the show to air tonight but I still watched as tonight, it will be an exciting episode as all the artists are copying Filipino artists. Not just that, they are also performing alongside the artists they are impersonating.

The show was opened by Melai acting as the show’s host Billy Crawford. It is her poorest impersonation but as usual, she’s still hilarious. There are two guest judges for tonight taking the place of Jed Madela namely Rico J. Puno and former YFSF performer Karla Estrada.

Here are the performances last night:
KZ Tandingan as (and duet with) Charice Pempengco
KZ started the show as the Filipino international singer, Charice Pempengco with the hit song “Pyramid”. As we all know, Charice mentored KZ before on the hit reality competition “X-Factor Philippines”. Honestly, she don’t look like Charice maybe due to the shape of their faves. But her voice especially at the beginning sounded like Charice.

Myrtle Sarosa as (and duet with) Verni Varga
Verni Varga had chosen Myrtle to impersonate her. With her looks, Myrtle was even prettier than Verni and I could not see Verni in her. Good thing her movements were exactly Verni when she’s still younger.

Denise Laurel as (and duet with) Imelda Papin
Denise copied and dueted with the Jukebox Queen, Imelda Papin. I can see the similarity with them looks, though she lacked with the voice.The movements are okay, though Denise’s was classy as guest judge Rico J. Puno commented.

Sam Concepcion as (and duet with) Erik Santos
Sam’s turn to impersonate fellow ASAP Kapamilya Erik Santos. I was not impressed with the looks because I haven’t seen any resemblance. But I think she sang it well, it’s just that the judges focused on the voice which we cannot expect to be perfectly copied since a balladeer is different from a R&B artist.

Kean Cipriano as (and duet with) Richard Poon
Kean becomes a crooner this time as Richard Poon. The looks is a little close But the voice and their movements together were synchronized that made it a fun performance.

Honestly, I am not impressed with the make-up. Good thing the performers were able to copy other aspects from the artists they are impersonating.

Meanwhile, here’s my ranking for the five performers tonight:
1. Kean Cipriano
2. Denise Laurel
3. Myrtle Sarosa
4. KZ Tandingan
5. Sam Concepcion

There are three more performers tomorrow to check out.

Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2 can be seen on ABS-CBN during Saturday and Sunday night.
