I am never really fond of commenting on certain local shows I watch on TV. But in this particular case, I can't help it. I make it a point that I catch Philippine Idol.. if not Performance night, (which is on a Saturday and I'm usually not at home), at least on Sunday Elimination night. Today I got that chance to watch the show in its entirety. One of the show's judge, Ryan Cayabyab already expressed his sentiments in regards to voting because of talent and NOT popularity. I know a lot agree that the best singers lost their place in the competition because the not-so-good ones have garnered more votes either based on 'financial resources' or location-based vote monopoly (in this case, Australia). Gusto kong umiyak! when I heard Ken and Jeli sing (I was rooting for Mau, Arms and Pow) ... naku po! kung may gong lang ako na-gong na sila! Tama na!!!!
In between commercial breaks, I channel-surfed to Pinoy Dream Academy. Well, lo and behold. One on 'probatiobary' was Rosita (very 'masa'-appeal) and she was rendering her interpretation of 'Sana'y Wala Ng Wakas'. GOOSEBUMPS! She was soooo gooood! Effortless and the emotion, the feel of the song really gets to your bones! ito dapat and nasa Philippine Idol!
