Of idols and dreams

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!

I don't why Jeli is still on the competition. Ganun ba karami ang friends niya? Ganun ba siya kayaman? Umpisa pa lang di na kagandahan ang performance niya. Have you heard her "Paglisan"? Oh my! Kailangan na niyang lumisan. Sinira niya yung kanta!

Have you heard when Toni said "That's Rosita with her rendition of Higit Pa Riyan Ang Alay Ko"? OMG! Sacrilege! She's sooo stoopid!

hey Jheck! Gulp! Toni said that?!?! di ko napansin yun a... na-overwhelm ako totally kay Rosita.
Jeli's 'Paglisan' was bad. Ken's performance last Sunday was his only best so far-- though bandang huli may sablay pa rin. And also..di ako masyadong agree kay Mamita Pilita about Pow dressing up in long gown! I agree na 'iba' but then, pano naman individuality ng person?....

hay naku, deadma ka na sa mga comment ni pilita! as if naman pinag-iisipan niya ang mga sinasabi niya. good thing that francis is out of the country. ang balita ay talagang binigyan siya ng trabaho abroad para iiwas sa pagja-judge. there are talks that some people want hajji or wency to stay as one of the judges.

yes i heard and read that somewhere too. ok nga daw si hajji.. hay! you're right nga about pilita. pa-cute nga minsan mga comments niya.
