It was a cold and rainy evening here in Laguna, but tonight’s performances from The Voice PH’s top 8 gave the night its needed warmth.
Live from the Newport Performing Arts Theater in Resorts World Manila, Voice PH’s Top 8 which includes Mitoy and Rhada of Team Lea, Myk and Paolo of Team Bamboo, Morissette and Klarisse of Team Sarah and Janice and Thor for Team Apl, delivered an all-out fiery performances all worthy of finals spot which made it hard for their coaches to chose who they will give their votes. The show itself made it appear not as a semi-finals showdown but finals already.
For Team Lea, Mitoy did a heartfealt rendition of Power of Love same with Rhada’s heartful version of Let it Be. Personally, I think Mitoy really performed better than Rhada tonight but I would still like Rhada to be in the Finals.
Team Bamboo’s 2 boys, Myke and Paolo did Baby I Love Your Way and Elesi respectively. Myk was really an artist waiting to be launched with his performance tonight. Although I didn’t liked his stage antics which seemed to be too much but vocally he easily vested Paolo Onesa.
Team Sarah presented her 2 belters Morissette Amon and Klarisse de Guzman. Morissette sang Who Are You while Klarisse did To Love Somebody. For me tonight was Klarisse’s best performance in the whole competition. She just gave it all. Didn’t bother with technicalities, she just let her heart our and sing all the way.
Lastly, Team Apl’s Thor and Janice also wowed the audience with their versions of Climb Every Mountain and Imagine. Thor gave justice to the song, but for me the night was owned by Janice and her powerful big voice.
Aside from top 8’s powerful performances, tonight’s show was also highlighted by coaches strong presence and jokes about its host’s Toni Gonzaga’s “Bangs” which was dubbed by her co-hosts Robi Domingo and her sister Alex Gonzaga, “The Bangs of the Philippines”
After more than 2 hours of airing, the results were finally announced revealing the top 4 which will compete in the next week’s The Voice PH Finale. Combined with public and coaches votes the top 4 for The Voice PH’s Season 1 were:
1. Team Lea – Mitoy Yonting (108%)
2. Team Bamboo – Myke Perez (103%)
3. Team Sarah – Klarisse de Guzman ( 118%)
4. Team Apl – Janice Javier (112%)
Earlier during the show I’ve predicted, Rhada, Paolo (only because I know many will vote for him), Klarisse and Janice to be in the top 4. Although I only got 2 out of 4, am still happy with the outcome. And will be excited to look forward to next week’s finals.
Here’s the complete list of tonight’s result with their corresponding percentage of votes.
