It looks like it will be a busy week for me, so expect some delays. My DVR will still record Maging Sino Ka Man and Super Twins. Unfortunately, no more Rounin and everything else. Please e-mail me if there’s a StarStruck appearance that I should look out for on SiS. Thanks for your patience.

Avisala mga Kaisip!

Pinoy Pop Superstar — Iloilo Roadshow

Pinoy Pop Superstar

O sige na nga. The only reason I am posting Maricris here is because siya yung nanalo for the night. But it wasn’t beautiful, it was a disaster. LOL

Actually I’m kinda rooting for Miguel and John Louie, pero Miguel should really stop singing Spandau Ballet songs. I like Spandau Ballet, but it’s really hard for me to get excited over “Gold”. Miguel is not auditioning to be the new lead singer of Spandau, he’s competing to the next Pinoy Pop Superstah. And apparently, John Louie is also getting advice that he is a rocker. No. He even sang “You Give Love a Bad Name” — which Blake Lewis just sang on American Idol last Tuesday. I’m sure, that’s the reason he sang that. Mahilig yata kasi ang Pinoy ng “retaliatory” song selection, as if to show they can sing better. Regine has done it time and time again and failed miserably — etong mga baguhan pa kaya? I remember when Teen Pop Sensation Sanjaya Malakar sang “Knocks Me Off My Feet” by Stevie Wonder, both ASAP and SOP had Stevie Wonder medleys featuring that song the next weekend. Asar.

This batch of finalists really worry me. Sana may konting libog ng konti — it’s so flat and boring. I know I may sound incoherent at times, pero I think I’m the voice of reason here. I mean if they didn’t eliminate Reydan a few weeks ago, ang dami na sanang nanonood ng PPS ngayon. People aren’t looking for “songers” these days, they are looking for personality.

Anyway, Maricris, the Pinoy Pop Superstar of the night in Iloilo:
