Recap: Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 October 25, 2015

Fun continues tonight in Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2 as three artists will perform tonight. Five artists already performed last night: Kean Cipriano, Myrtle Sarosa, KZ Tandingan, Michael Pangilinan and Denise Laurel. The three performers for tonight were:

Eric Nicolas as Apache Indian
Eric was tonight’s performer and did the fusion of Indian and Jamaican dancehall through the 1993 hit “Boom Shack-a-Lak” from Brit-Indian recording artist Apache Indian. The performance is so far good as Apache Indian is comedic like Eric. The vocals of Apache is husky which Eric has too.

Sam Concepcion as Ogie Alcasid
Sam’s turn to become a balladeer again as songwriter and singer Ogie Alcasid. The performance was very good as he got Ogie’s voice. Again, I disagree with Gary Valenciano’s judging. He often looks at minimal mistake which is just the pronunciation. He doesn’t do that to others who made more distinct mistake. The looks though is not approved for me.

Kakai Bautista as Julie Andrews
Tonight, Kakai did musical as Julie Andrews with her performance from the film with the same title as the song “The Sound of Music”. She received a standing ovation from all of the judges tonight. The voice and her looks are perfect even just when she entered the stage.

This is my personal final rankings for tonight:
1. Kakai Bautista
2. Denise Laurel
3. KZ Tandingan
4. Myrtle Sarosa
5. Sam Concepcion
6. Eric Nicolas
7. Kean Cipriano
8. Michael Pangilinan

So far, judges’ ranking for Kakai is agreeable, but with Denise whom they gave the standing ovation last night is not in their second. With the artists’ votes, Denise was pulled up to second.

Here’s the final ranking from the points accumulated from judges and artists’ votes:
1. Kakai Bautista
2. Denise Laurel
3. Michael Pangilinan
4. KZ Tandingan
5. Eric Nicolas
6. Myrtle Sarosa
7. Kean Cipriano
8. Sam Concepcion
Congratulations to Kakai who really deserves the win this week.

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

Recap: Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 October 24, 2015

After a week of failing to watch last week’s episode due to strong typhoon, I am back to writing the recap for this week. I may be writing about last week after streaming. Anyway, tonight may be another great episode of Your Face Sounds Familiar Season 2.

To start the show, of course, Melai Cantiveros is back for her weekly impersonation. This week, she’s the ABS-CBN News reporter Doris Bigornia. Funny how she stole the beginning of the show from host Billy Crawford.

Here are the five performers for tonight’s episode:
Kean Cipriano as Jose Mari Chan
Kean turned into a balladeer as he acted as iconic Filipino balladeer Jose Mari Chan. He sang one of Chan’s signature song “Beautiful Girl” which even had 3 beauty queens onstage: MJ Lastimosa, Bea Rose Santiago, and Mutya Datul. His look slightly looked like Chan while the singing was done lower than Chan’s voice.

Myrtle Sarosa as Nicole Scherzinger of Pussycat Dolls
Myrtle went sexy this time as Nicole Scherzinger of girl group Pussycat Dolls. The performance is good, and I think she needs more moves. So far, she copied Nicole too close.

KZ Tandingan as Lolita Carbon
KZ went folk rock as Lolita Carbon singing a very iconic OPM song “Himig ng Pag-Ibig”. It is very close and the voice is very soothing. Though Lolita’s voice is slightly pitchy than KZ, it is still a very good performance.

Michael Pangilinan as Tracy Chapman
Michael turned into a female singer tonight as folk pop singer Tracy Chapman. It wouldn’t be that hard to act as Tracy since Tracy is quite musculine. By the way her voice is very distinct and it can be understood if Michael do not exactly copied Tracy’s vocals.

Denise Laurel as Jed Madela
Denise had the most difficult task as she is assigned to do Jed Madela, who is one of the judges. It is not exactly Jed but the effort can really be felt. Even the judges gave her a standing ovation.

Tonight’s episode had just wrapped up and the winner will be announced tomorrow after three more performers. By the way I made my own ranking for tonight which was listed below.
1. Denise Laurel
2. KZ Tandingan
3. Myrtle Sarosa
4. Kean Cipriano
5. Michael Pangilinan

Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 airs on Saturdays and Sundays on ABS-CBN 2.

Recap: Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 October 11, 2015

  • The fun continued tonight with three more performers as the five were done last night. The following performers for tonight were:

    Eric Nicolas- He impersonated actress Whoopi Goldberg which he performed “I Will Follow You” from the hit 1990s film “Sister’s Act”. He may not completely looked like Whoopi but the performance is all fun.

    Denise Laurel- She nailed her impersonation of Broadway Diva Lea Salonga. Knowing Lea for her clean singing and pitch perfect, Denise never shown intimidation for her performance. She sang “Bakit Labis Kitang Mahal?” (Why Do I Love You So Much?) very well. Tonight, I think she is the best performer.

    Sam Concepcion- It was fun to see Sam nailing his performances. Tonight, he impersonated Dong Abay of the band Yano. As usual, he did it well and served as his redemption from last week’s poor performance.

    This week is the best episode of YFSF2 as the artists did very well in their performances. My poorest performer for me is Kean Cipriano. Here’s my ranking for all the performances:

    1. Denise Laurel
    2. KZ Tandingan
    3. Sam Concepcion
    4. Kakai Bautista
    5. Myrtle Sarosa
    6. Eric Nicolas
    7. Michael Pangilinan
    8. Kean Cipriano

    The judges had spoken and already gave their judgement. However, the artists’ votes affected the ranking. The result for this week’s episode below:

    1. Sam Concepcion
    2. Denise Laurel
    3. Kakai Bautista
    4. KZ Tandingan
    5. Kean Cipriano
    6. Eric Nicolas
    7. Michael Pangilinan
    8. Myrtle Sarosa

    Sam again won for the second time. He’s a frontrunner and will surely make it at the top four. So far, this show is all about fun and giving the entertainment for the viewers.

    Next week will be another exciting week as the artists already knew who are they impersonating. Surely, there will be lots of surprises again. We are also looking forward for Melai’s impersonation.

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

  • Recap: Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 October 10, 2015

    The episode tonight is over and I am giving you the recap of what happened in the show. Who hits, and who misses tonight? Check below:

    As usual, Melai Cantiveros has shown his impersonation again. Tonight, she impersonated TV Host Kim Atienza. She nailed Kim’s looks, however, the voice may failed a bit. It is fine since it is the source of laughter in the show.

    Kean Cipriano
    Kean started the show as Philippines’ Comedy King Dolphy. The prosthetic didn’t meet expectations to completely look like Dolphy. The voice also doesn’t sounds like Dolphy, however, his gestures are perfect.

    KZ Tandingan
    After winning last week, it seems KZ Tandingan is breaking out with her perfect performance tonight. She impersonated the late Amy Winehouse singing her biggest hit “Rehab”, which she perfectly sang it. The way Amy moves and the looks was excellent. Tonight, I think she is the best performer.

    Myrtle Sarosa
    Apparently, Myrtle had the most difficult impersonation as she copied a male artist. It’s not an easy job because the song is not in English, not even in Tagalog. She sang in Chinese because she impersonated Taiwanese actor and singer Jerry Yan. The performance and her looks is okay, while the voice is hard to copy since she is a lady.

    Michael Pangilinan
    Michael often do well in his performances and he did the same tonight. He impersonated Brandon Beal, the guy behind the song “Twerk it Like Miley”. Among all the performers tonight, his looks is the most perfect. There might be lacking with the voice but movements are good.

    Kakai Bautista
    I think this is the best performance of Kakai since the season started. Her lools doesn’t need prosthetics because she looks exactly like Donna Summer. She sang “Last Dance” very well and hit the high notes. The way Donna dance and moves was well-executed by Kakai.

    My top 5 performers for tonight were:
    1. KZ Tandingan
    2. Kakai Bautista
    3. Myrtle Sarosa
    4. Michael Pangilinan
    5. Kean Cipriano

    Announcement for this week’s winner will be announced tomorrow after the three performances of remaining artists.

    Your Voice Sounds Familiar 2 is airing every Saturday and Sunday nights on ABS-CBN 2.

    Recap: Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 October 4, 2015

    The recap continues for the show. And tonight, the winner for this week was finally announced. Five artists had performed last night and the three had performed tonight which affected the rankings.

    Tonight’s show was started by Kean Cipriano as Pop/Rock princess Avril Lavigne. The looks was really cool even though he reminds me of “White Chicks”. The vocals wasn’t done in falsetto which I am not convinced. So far, the performance was good, even better than last week when he’s the winner.

    Next to Kean was Michael Pangilinan as another Michael, comedian/singer Michael V. It’s a shift from the usual pop and R&B performances from previous weeks, which at this time as novelty singer. The face was close but the voice didn’t hit it

    Finally, KZ took the floor and impersonated British pop star Jessie J. She has the best performance tonight. She might not look exactly like her, but she sang it well, likewise her movements were very Jessie J. The judges and even the audience gave her a standing ovation. It served as a redemption after weeks being at lower places.

    With all the performances from last night here’s my personal ranking:

    1. Denise Laurel

    2. KZ Tandingan

    3. Kean Cipriano

    4. Eric Nicolas

    5. Michael Pangilinan

    6. Kakai Bautista

    7. Sam Concepcion

    8. Myrtle Sarosa

    The judges already gave their rankings and the result was:

    1. KZ Tandingan

    2. Denise Laurel

    3. Kean Cipriano

    4. Michael Pangilinan

    5. Eric Nicolas

    6. Sam Concepcion

    7. Kakai Bautista

    8. Myrtle Sarosa

    The reason why I picked Denise over KZ was Ne-Yo is more difficult to impersonate and it’s difficult for a girl who’s very feminine then sing and dance like a man. KZ’s performance though is superb.

    Next week was expected to be another great episode/s. The icons the 8 artists are going to impersonate was finally revealed. However, Melai Cantiveros’ impersonation is not revealed for everybody to look forward to.

    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.

     

    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.

     

    Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 airs on Saturday night after MMK and Sunday night after Rated K on ABS-CBN 2.

     

    Recap: Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 September 26, 2015

    It’s Saturday night once again and I am on my Saturday night habit of watching one of my favorite shows, Your Face Sounds Familiar 2. Here’s the recap of tonight’s episode of the show.

    The show started with Melai Cantiveros showing her impersonation. Everybody is always anticipating who will she impersonate. During the first week of the episode, she nailed Madonna and last week with Dionisia Pacquiao. Tonight, she impersonated G-Force head Teacher Georcelle, who’s also the teacher of impersonation of all the contestants.

    The first performer for the night was KZ Tandingan who impersonated King of Reggae, Bob Marley. The song was “Waiting in Vain”. It’s never an easy job for a woman to sing like a man so it’s never expected, and she failed with that. KZ, I think, is an artist of her own and based on her previous performances and tonight’s, she’s not that a good impersonator.

    Next performer was Myrtle Sarosa who jump back to several decades with her impersonation of Armida Siguion Reyna. Knowing Myrtle is a young artist and Armida was decades back, it is difficult to impersonate such artist. I think she did well, in contrary with the judges’ comments.

    The best performance for tonight, I think, was Michael Pangilinan who sang “Jealous” by Nick Jonas. He haven’t got the face exactly but the voice really nailed it. He’s one of the best contenders when it comes to voice.

    Comedian and singer Kakai Bautista impersonated Sheena Easton with her big hit “Telephone”. It was a good performance and I rank her the second best for tonight.

    The last performer was Eric Nicolas with his Bayani Agbayani performance of “Otso Otso”. It was a fair performance and I never saw Bayani in the performance except the song despite dancing at the top of judges’ table. It may be in contrast with the judges but I really didn’t see it clicked.

    If I am going to rank tonight’s performance, it would be:

    1. Michael Pangilinan

    2. Kakai Pangilinan

    3. Myrtle Sarosa

    4. Eric Nicolas

    5. KZ Tandingan

    Rank may change tomorrow as 3 remaining artists will perform.

    Recap: Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 September 20, 2015

    The recap for Your Face Sounds Familiar 2 continues tonight. Last night, five artists performed and impersonated 5 icons, Kean Cipriano as Randy Santiago, Myrtle Sarosa as Jessa Zaragosa, Denise Laurel as Christina Aguilera, Michael Pangilinan as Janno Gibbs and Eric Nicolas as Louis Armstrong.

    Tonight, three artists performed which started with Sam Concepcion who impersonated R&B singer Jason Derulo with the worldwide hit “Talk Dirty”. He really nailed the performance, from Derulo’s dance moves to his looks. It was great to start tonight’s episode.

    The next performer has been KZ Tandingan doing pop rock singer P!nk. It was a decent performance, though knowing P!nk as an exceptional singer who is very rare, is hard to imitate.

    The last performer was comedian, singer and theater actress Kakai Bautista who impersonated Comedian Ai-Ai Delas Alas, who was difficult to copy as the judges commented.

    If I am going to rank the 8 artists, it would be:

    1. Sam Concepcion

    – he perfected copying Jason Derulo and I question Gary Valenciano’s judgement. For just missed few words, it affected the ranking.

    2. Kean Cipriano

    – it was another perfect performance. It’s just that what Sam did is more difficult.

    3. Eric Nicolas

    – he portrayed Louis Armstrong well, but I don’t think the vocals was perfect. Honestly, the way he sang it bothered me.

    4. Denise Laurel

    – it may not be perfect but the looks is excellent. Vocally, Christina’s vocal gymnastics is extremely difficult to copy and it’s still a decent performance.

    5. Michael Pangilinan

    -vocals was perfect but I am not convinced with the looks.

    6. Myrtle Sarosa

    – her looks is way more like Alex Gonzaga but she sang it well.

    7. KZ Tandingan

    – it was a modest performance. I am a fan of KZ’s artistry but not yet convinced with impersonation.

    8. Kakai Bautista

    – I have high hopes in her but the performance, I think, is a failure.

    That’s just my ranking it doesn’t count. The final rankings were:

    1. San Concepcion

    2. Michael Pangilinan

    3. Kean Cipriano

    4. Eric Nicolas

    5. Myrtle Sarosa

    6. KZ Tandingan

    7. Denise Laurel

    8. Kakai Bautista

    Next week will be another interesting episode and expect intense performances from the 8 artists.

     

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

    Recap: Your Face Sounds Familiar 2, September 19, 2015 Episode

    It’s Saturday night and I have my habit of watching my favorite local TV show at the moment. It is “Your Face Sounds Familiar 2”. Last week, I made a recap of the episodes from Saturday to Sunday. The winner for the week ended for Eric Nicolas who copied Willie Revillame. We will see this week if he will nail his performance and stay on top.

    This week’s episodes will be interesting once again as 8 of the celebrities will be impersonating 8 icons either local or international artists.

    The show begun with last season’s winner (and now a regular in the show) Melai Cantiveros impersonating Manny Pacquiao’s mom, Dionisia Pacquiao. Melai did so well even without a performance. She did Dionisia’s signature, her way of singing Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball” (Reking Bul as pronounced). As usual, she made the audience laugh as she really nailed it.

    The first performer for the night was Rocker Kean Cipriano who impersonated Randy Santiago. From the looks to movements and even his voice, he performed it well. I can’t even see Kean in that performance.

    Cosplayer Myrtle Sarosa connected to the song after her breakup when she sang and impersonated Jessa Zaragosa. The look didn’t get it but her voice is great. Even Jessa Zaragosa herself is in the audience and approved Myrtle’s performance.

    Actress Denise Laurel did Christina Aguilera through the song Lady Marmalade (actually sang with Pink, Lil Kim and Mya). The song was difficult to sing knowing the range of Christina’s voice but Denise tried and she sang it well despite not hitting the highest note. The way Christina moves her fingers and her look was well-copied. However, Christina’s flirt was lacking in her performance.

    Among the vocals, Michael Pangilinan is on the spot. The looks may not be perfect but his voice or the way he sang it will take him to top 5 this week.

    The last performer was last week’s winner Eric Nicolas who this time, impersonated Louis Armstrong with the iconic, timeless and beautiful song “What a Wonderful World”. He did well however, the way it was sang was more of a growling. The looks was good though.

    Among all the 5 performances tonight, I think the best was Kean Cipriano. The competition is not yet over since 3 other artists will perform tomorrow. The winner this week will also be picked and announced tomorrow.
