APAT na grupo na pawang kababaihan ang nakakuha ng atensyon hindi lamang sa mga TV viewers kundi pati sa apat na judges ng Idol Philippines dahil kinanta nila ang old hit songs ni Lani Misalucha.

Ang nasabing grupo ay kinabibilangan nina Diane Vergoza, Carmela Ravanilla, Rachel May Libres at Endy Asidor at bongga naman ang kanilang hinirit na Tila.

“Kaming apat, sa tingin namin, ‘yung performance ninyo tonight, parang pinaghirapan ninyo talaga,” sabi ni Regine Velasquez sa kanila.

Despite giving their everything, only Diane and Rachel May will move on to the next round.

‘Yung isa namang contestant named Lucas Garcia ay umaming nag-pretend siyang hindi siya bading pero those days daw are now over.

During his introduction, Garcia said: “I am 20 years old, proudly and beautifully gay from Lipa City, Batangas.”

He said that he joined Idol Philippines because he knew that he will be judged based on his talent, not by his gender preference.

And what a talent he had – all of the judges agreed that his cover of Sam Smith’s Lay Me Down was one of the best they’ve heard and that they had no hesitations in saying “yes”.

“It gave me goosebumps,” said James Reid, to which Regine added that she thought his version was flawless and that his personality will take him far into the competition.

Si Billy Crawford ay pa-smile-smile lang bilang host ng Idol Philippipines, na umeere tuwing Sabado pakatapos ng Home Sweetie Home at Linggo pagkatapos ng Wansapanataym sa Kapamilya primetime.
