This is truly the night we’ve been waiting for! The performance night of the final six graduates of Pinoy Dream Academy Seaaon 2 is truly spectacular. It was a culmination of 13 weeks of ups and downs, gala and eviction nights. Their techniques have improved and the lessons they’ve learned kept them inspired to push on and it finally came to one Grand Dream Night!
Miguel Mendoza came out as a multi-talented, well-rounded musician. A balladeer at a young age, he surely has a long career of singing and songs to write out from his heart. Laarni Lozada stands out because of her powerful and versatile voice. Her command on stage really pumps out the energy from within. Cris Pastor is obviously the sexiest, gorgeous and beautiful that came out to be naturally artistic. Van Roxas is exceptionally a pop rock superstar. His groovy moves, charm and star-striking presence really gave him much of the edge from the rest. Liezel Garcia has one of the finest voices in the industry. She was also a 5 time star scholar. This exotic beauty is coined to be the future of Philippine RnB. Bugoy Drilon on the final note gave out his extraordinary voice much to his distinction. He has the widest vocal range that came out from the deepest part of his heart and soul.
It is a night to reckon. A celebration of the finest talent ever staged so far in the country. A collection of different people who strives to unite though they’re in a midst of competition. What they have achieved is not just improvement and fame, but inspiration, love and respect from their mentors, co-scholars, families and the fans.
There’s one more step though before the curtain falls. Tomorrow is the Grand Awards Night! And you have to keep on voting until 2pm with ASAP! Who would you vote for? 😎
The Final Six (6) of the Pinoy Dream Academy 2 is set to compete head-on to each other. The last expulsion night gave the six spot to Van to complete the finalists. Hansen got off the academy, leaving his friends and apple of the eye, Cris longing and in tears.
Shooting for the greatness, Bugoy and Liezel are the top 2 competitors who paved the way to exchange places as star scholars on the past gala nights. But Laarni has her own right and raging determination to keep up with the two. The popular bottom three, Cris, Miguel and Van is actually no bottom three at all. Their improvements, realizations during their exercises with Teacher Malou boost their morale and get them to think that they joined the competition not just to have a place but to be at the top!
Excellence is what to be expected from these six, nothing less or settling even for second best. Their first reason why they got themselves into the competition, their families, loved ones and their very dreams will be put across the line between each one of them and the Grand Star Dreamer’s Title!
Exciting isn’t it? You just can’t keep your fingers crossed if you want to see your chosen ‘Dreamer’ to the top. I guess you have to keep on sending in your text votes guys for now. <And don’t forget to cast your votes here too. Check our new Hot Polls which you can see just at right side of this page. Alright?> We’ll keep on watching! =)
Grand Jury Louie Ocampo got to give it to Liezel as the darling princess of the 7th Gala Night for her outstanding performance! She scored 9.67 enough to be the Star Scholar, beating Laarni scoring 8.0 with their one-on-one competition.
Together with Laarni were Bunny, Miguel, Van and Apple who lost and automatically went to bottom five for possible expulsion. Though the Dream Mentors already saved Bunny, another scholar will be announced soon as the scholar’s pick to stay in the academy.
The night was best so far for these scholars. Bugoy gave a church-like atmosphere but his voice quality and texture gave his rendition of “Nakapagtataka” a memorable one. Another notable performance was from Laarni and Poy’s duet. The two really got their voices high enough to impress the juries. Though Poy got a little intimidated with Laarni’s commanding confidence, both of them really pulled off an outstanding performance.
And not to leave the night cold, Cris really heated it up, singing “It’s Raining Men” as she takes off much of her clothes… whew! Even jury Jimmy Bondoc can’t hold much of his excitement! =)
Jet Singh, finally decided to drop out of the Pinoy Dream Academy after the announcement of their scorecards and being included to the bottom four scholars on their 3rd probationary night. This luckily saved the other bottom three Laarni, Cris and Bea for the expulsion night.
He was disappointed the last time he wasn’t voted out the last expulsion night. But for now, taking no chances to be voted again to stay, he decided to go straight home back to his family.
As for the scholar’s 3rd Gala Performance Night yesterday, both teams failed to meet the passing GPA with 6.68 and 7.32 for One Voice and Pupilars, respectively. But fortunately for the Pupilars, having won the music video making competition, they got a plus 0.5 to their team’s GPA, giving them a passing score of 7.82.
