This Friday, sa live telecast ng artista search na ito ng GMA ay magkakaroon muli ng tanggalan, but as to whom among the surviving 10 is just as hard to predict. At bakit?
Pansin lang namin that while the council members pass their sound judgment in terms of the kids’ flaws, pagdating ng actual verdict ay hindi ‘yon ang nagiging batayan.
Take the common case ng mga Ingliserong sina Migo at Elyson na parehong pilipit ang dila sa pananagalog, both cuties are advised to brush up on the vernacular tongue. Mapabibilang nga sila sa bottom group o nanganganib magpaalam, yet in the final tally, both would sashay towards their co-avengers whose heads are earlier spared from the proverbial sword of Damocles.
And why is this happening? Ilang porsiyento lang kasi ang katumbas ng combined scores ng judges at council members as the weightier basis lies in the 60% na nanggagaling sa mga texters. And by texters, expect that these comprise the kids’ families, extended families, friends, friends of their friends, neighbors of their neighbors, and even their pet animals and their hairy playmates.
Isa sa dalawang girls who got booted out, si Koreen—a Julia Montes dead-ringer—ang pinanghihinayangan namin. She came on too impressive in a number of acting exercises even if the story was awfully written.
Even the council members were one in saying na mahusay ang bata yet Coreen was the third to go.
Tuloy, we couldn’t help kung ano nga ba talaga ang silbi ng mga naatasang humusga sa performance ng mga Starstruck hopefuls yaman din lang that their praiseworthy comments are overruled by popular social media-based choices whose voters hardly understand what acting is all about?
