StarStruck V Update:Council Members Suspend the Elimination + Final 8 Billboard Pictorial

Posted by JED on Wednesday, January 20, 2010 , under | comments (19)

Rocco Nacino and Sarah Lahbati get another chance to continue their StarStruck journey after dodging the risk of possible elimination in StarStruck V.

The Factor 2 twist came into play in last Sunday's elimination night after the council members composed of TV director Floy Quintos, versatile actress Iza Calzado and talent manager Lolit Solis used their one time power to stop the elimination.

Nina Kodaka joined Rocco and Sarah in the bottom 3. Diva Montelaba, Rox Montealegre, Ian Batherson, Steven Silva and Enzo Pineda were all safe.

The Top 8 survivors brace themselves to lose two contenders in the next elimination night if Factor 1 takes effect. Factor 1 states that if a survivor lands in the bottom group thrice, it would mean an automatic nomination for them. And right now, both Ian Batherson and Nina Kodaka have been part of the bottom group twice.

With only five weeks to go before the final judgment night, the eight remaining contenders are keeping their fingers crossed as only four will be given the chance to become the next ultimate survivors of the fifth season.

Who will shine in this week's artista tests and challenges? Can the Top 8 contenders survive Factor 1? When will Factor 4 and Factor 5 take effect?

Meanwhile, catch the billboard pictorial of Starstruck V Final 8 as taken by ace photographer Jun de Leon:

StarStruck V airs every Saturday with Raymond Gutierrez right after Pinoy Records and every Sunday with Dennis Trillo and Carla Abellana right after Kap's Amazing Stories while StarStruck Shout Out airs 3 times a day Mondays to Fridays with five-minute updates in the morning, afternoon, and primetime blocks on GMA-7.

Juliet Bahala is MYMP's Replacement to Juris Alcantara

Posted by JED on Monday, January 18, 2010 , under | comments (3)

There is life after Juris Fernandez for the local platinum selling band, MYMP (Make Your Momma Proud).

Months after the departure of Juris from the group due to "irreconcilable professional differences," founder and guitarist Chin Alcantara announced that the group will move on with new vocalist named Juliet Bahala (see photo inset).

The young Davao City native reportedly clinched the vacated spot through an audition where she bested fifteen other aspirants.

"Juliet's demo was the first one we heard and right away I knew she was the one. But our [new] manager [Tere Tinio] convinced me to wait and listen to other applicants but Juliet stood out. She fits all the criteria: distinct voice, versatile yet has her own style, and impressive technique and range," Chin proudly narrated in a recent interview.

The opportunity to sing for an established band was simply a chance Juliet could not afford to miss. Never mind if the prospect of assuming Juris's previous role is one daunting task for any newcomer.

"I have been a fan of love songs long before. When I heard that MYMP was looking for a new singer, I thought that even if my voice is different from their style, I will have a great input in this band. And I also heard from my friend who helped me audition that Chin arranges all the songs and that he is a perfectionist when it comes to music. So I know that I will be in good hands," said Juliet.

According to Chin, MYMP will release a new album this year still under Star Records where the group has still an existing contract.

Chin feels that releasing a new record is needed to immediately jumpstart the group's rebirth. He also hopes to reintroduce MYMP as a legitimate band and not a two-piece act, explaining that the term "duo" commonly used in describing the group for several years came from the music press.

"I want to maximize the talents and versatility of my new singer and instrumentalists. Expect a new sound from MYMP," mentioned Chin.

The crafty guitarist, who owns the MYMP trademark, is not bothered by the possibility of losing a huge chunk of the group's original fan base with this latest change. He said that the group has always put music first above image and individuals.

"If you study the history of MYMP, it started as an all-male rock band then it slowly evolved to pop then acoustic. The important thing is the talent, passion for music, grace and humility."

Watch MYMP introduce its new singer Juliet Bahala on ASAP XV this coming Sunday, January 24.

"Showtime" is Back Beginning January 19

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)

The ABS-CBN talent variety program "Showtime" will return on air tomorrow, January 19, despite the 20-day preventive suspension imposed by the MTRCB.

Here’s the official statement of ABS-CBN regarding the return of Showtime:

ABS-CBN is happy to announce that the talent-variety program “Showtime” will return on-air starting tomorrow, 19 Jan 2010, following the issuance of a temporary restraining order by the Court of Appeals enjoining the MTRCB from continuing to enforce the preventive suspension order on the show.

We welcome the CA resolution dated 15 January 2010, which states: "For reasons afore-stated, and as prayed for by petitioner, let a TEMPORARY RESTRAINING ORDER be issued, as it is hereby issued, effective sixty (60) days from notice hereof, enjoining respondent MTRCB, including any and all persons acting in their behalf and under their command and authority, from continuing to enforce the Preventive Suspension Order dated January 11, 2010 issued against petitioner, pending the resolution of the instant petition."

The top-rating talent variety program was suspended by the MTRCB last January 11 after one of its guest judges, Rosanna Roces, made statements against the teachers in the January 7 live show (click HERE for related story). A temporary show "Magpasikat" replaced Showtime during the suspension.

You Changed My Life, the Sarah Geronimo-John Lloyd Cruz-starrer, was once again a Valentine hit with its gross of P208.8 million. Star Cinema has promised that the love story of Laida Magtalas and Miggy Montenegro will continue, with Cathy Garcia-Molina still at the helm, but they have no definite date yet for its release.

Given the fact that Ai-Ai delas Alas starred in three blockbuster hits last year—Ang Tanging Ina N'yong Lahat, BFF (Best Friends Forever), and Ang Tanging Pamilya—there is a big possibility that she will be hailed as the Box-Office Queen. However, that will depend on the criteria set by the Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation, Inc. and whether they will count the gross of Ang Tanging Ina as part of the 2009 movies, or if it should be classified as part of 2008. The three films of Ai-Ai earned a total of P374.5 million.

Del Rosario pointed out that even though Ang Tanging Ina N'yong Lahat was part of the 2008 Metro Manila Film Fest, they still consider this Ai-Ai delas Alas starrer as part of their 2009 lineup. This is because even though the film opened on Christmas day, it had a much longer screening period during the month of January 2009.

1. You Changed My Life (Star Cinema/Viva) - P208.8 million
