Bottom 3 Last Saturday Night In Artista Academy Are Brent, Benjo And Marvelous

IT WAS LIVE exams night again in “Artista Academy” last Saturday. In the dancing segment, Sophie Albert is the highest pointer and Benjo Leoncio is the lowest. In the singing portion, Vin Abrenica who did Adele’s “Someone Like You” is the highest and Aki Blanco with “Alipin” is the lowest. Critics Gelli de Belen and Lorna Tolentino were so impressed by Mark Neumann who doesn’t really sing but did beat boxing and dancing with Justin Bieber’s “Baby”. It’s the acting segment that is the toughest but most impressive. Those who participated here were Malak So Shdifat, Marvelous Alejo, Stephanie Rowe, Chanel Morales and Brent Manzano. They all performed characters with multiple or split personalities. Chanel was the most impressive as a girl possessed by the devil. She’s the highest pointer with Marvelous as the lowest since the critics found her acting “kulang at malambot”.

After all the scores were tallied in their performances for the week, the honor roll showed Vin Abrenica as the top student for dance (93.25%) and singing (92%), while the top student for acting is Sophie Albert (94.5%).

The Bottom 3 were Marvelous Alejo, and repeaters Brent Manzano and Benjo Leoncio. You can still save your favorite among them through text votes. This week, the Artista Academy students will be treated by TV5 boss to a free trip to Hongkong. The show itself is sponsored by Unilever who gave away big baskets of free Closeup Toothpaste during the presscon.
