Charice Pempengco’s resurgence
DAN TULIN, student: “Charice’s performance in the ‘David Foster and Friends’ concert showed just how good she is. The crowd loved her version of the Carpenters’ ‘Superstar,’ sung with Ruben Studdard. But, it was her cover of Lani Misalucha’s ‘Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin’ that left the crowd asking for more.”
Ayla Flores, housewife: “The failure of Sarah Geronimo’s bets to advance to ‘The Voice Kids” final four caught the popular singer-actress’ followers by surprise. Last year, her bets were the top two vote-getters—but, this time, the reverse happened. Have voters’ preferences changed? Are they voting for contestants’ skill over popularity, regardless of whoever is coaching?”
Cookie Tiglao, televiewer: “Fresh-faced and naturally hilarious, Maine Mendoza’s (Yaya Dub) Dubsmash videos are exceptionally creative. Her ‘kalye-serye’ team-up with Alden Richards is a treat—I’m hooked!”
Amy Calumpang, teacher: “I wonder what film or TV project my favorite character actor, Roi Vinzon, is doing now. I became his fan since I saw him in ‘My Husband’s Lover,’ as Tom Rodriguez’s abusive father.”
Maria Eileen Sonjaco, freelance model: “‘It’s Showtime’ has always been my favorite TV program because of Anne Curtis—and watching the show live was one of my most memorable experiences! I had a grand time singing, dancing and laughing with the cohosts and the crowd. It wasn’t easy to get in, but it was worth the trouble—a once-in-a-lifetime moment!”
