At last, the battle of singing hopefuls has come to its last and final performance. KZ Tandingan, Daddy’s Home and Gabriel Maturan are left standing in the competition aiming to be the very first grand winner of X Factor Philippines.
Host KC Concepcion shows her sexy back wearing a sizzling hot red dress. With her most direct hosting job, she reveals guest performers for the said show who are Vina Morales, Rico J. Puno, Nina and Bamboo. She then introduce International singing diva, “Asia’s Nightingale” Ms. Lani Misalucha as the opening act of the evening. Lani performs mash-up of Pink’s Raise Your Glass and Taio Cruz’ Dynamite with the Top 3 grand finalists Daddy’s Home, Gabriel and KZ.
Kicking off the show’s grand performance night is from Gary Valenciano’s Groups category, Daddy’s Home. The four daddies make their own version of a religious inspired Pinoy song. It was captivating, smooth but powerful. The blending of their voices really lifts you into the heaven, a wholly competitive harmonized group.
Martin: People in harmony, Angels beside God. That’s how it feels with this harmonizing group.
Pilita: Siguro dahil lahat kayo ay naka-puti, tonong tono ninyo ang kanta.
Charice: I just really feel it. Napakagaling.
Gary: Kayo ang perfect opening ng show.
Marikina’s bet also makes their music jam with Diamond Soul Siren Nina blowing a high-pitched song Through the Fire.
The one and only contestant who fortunately did not make into the bottom 2 throughout the competition follows, Gabriel Maturan sings his heart out with a grand-winning song I Believe of American Idol’s. Martin Nievera’s son delivers an exceptional performance of a “female song” categorically. I just don’t like his hands movements. It was quite disturbing back and forth to think that he may be shaking. He was pitchy in the middle but pull it through at the end especially those high falsetto, it was magically superb.
Pilita: Kung napunta ka sa akin, mas magaling ka pa.
Gary: Technically, there are some parts like oppss but sometimes, when a performer comes to the stage with heart and soul, it does not matter.
Charice: This is the reason why from audition up to here, we believe in you.
Martib: Pinakamagandang performance mo all by your lonesome.
CDO and Dapitan’s bet also turns into a heartthrob rock song with rocks star Bamboo in the center stage performing The Man Who Can’t Be Moved.
Show’s biggest threat to win this thing is from Girls category, KZ Tandingan. Charice’s own mentee singles out a very popular classic song, “Superstar” by Carpenters. It was the best performance of the night in a million miles away from her competitors. Her stage performance is undeniably astounding. Her projection is like a pro. Her attack to the song is her own KZ style and it absorbing our hearts and soul. This performance should have been blessed a standing ovation from judges but they did not do it. Kinda disappointing.
Martin: True honored that I am one seeing you in the stage in front of us. Unbelievable.
Pilita: KZ is the most consistent. Your performance is “still good”.
Gary: Ikaw lang talaga. You have the eyes that express; you have the voice that says.
Charice: Speechless na po ako. Tinulungan ka ni Lord. Ikaw na ikaw yon KZ.
Davao and Digos’ bet also performs a duet with ageless Rico J. Puno singing The Way We Were.
Meanwhile, dancing diva Vina Morales dance out in X Factor stage with her dynamic number. The final results of X Factor Philippines will be revealed tomorrow night on ABS-CBN right after Sarah G Live!
