ABS-CBN Has Come Up With A Real Winner In New Franchise Show 'Your Face Sounds Familiar'

ABS-CBN HAS has definitely come up with a real winner in their new franchise show, "Your Face Sounds Familiar". It has gained more viewers than the show it replaced, "The Voice Philippines". Viewers are really curious who the celebrity contestants will imitate next among local and international singers?

In the first episode, Jay-R emerged the winner while copying local rocker Pepe Smith, with Edgar Allan Guzman runner up as Usher. Also making an impression then was Karla Estrada as Sharon Cuneta. In the second episode last week, Karla became the topnotcher while imitating Chaka Khan with her excellent version of "Thru the Fire". In all fairness, Nyoy Volante is also impressive in his own version of Yoyoy Villame in "Buchikchik", Tutti Caringal as Adam Levine, and Jay-R as Stevie Wonder. In the case of the other contestants, some are obviously put there just for comic relief, like Melai Cantiveros imitating Nora Aunor in the first week, then Britney Spears in the second episode.

Viewers also follow the comments of the show's three judges: Sharon Cuneta, Gary Valenciano and Jed Madela. In the last show, Edgar Allan imitated Gary V's singing and dancing. They even had a showdown. He's quite good, but Gary himself was obviously not pleased or impressed and gave him a very low rating of just 1. The fans of the stars who are part of the contest also make their presence felt, like in the case of Jolina Magdangal fans who complained in social media when Sharon Cuneta gave Jolens a low rating.
