Pinoy Idol, a big disappointment
I’m only able to watch Pinoy Idol online.. via Youtube, Daily Motion and simillar sites.
Unlike American Idol which i see to it that I download all the performances, with Pinoy Idol, I’m not that of a follower.. but i see to it that i get updates of which singer was good… then i watch their videos.But i don’t download them.
At one point, PI (pinoy idol) tried to imittate Pinoy Dream Academy (PDA). Those “Inside the house” or condo scenes… i said, ahh.. ok.. =p (then ASAP 08 is now having PDA scholars to sing every Sunday.. gayahan naman talaga.. hahahah)
Gretchen Espina is the new (not first) Idol.
Among the top 3 finalists.. i think Ram Chavez should be the Pinoy Idol. I’m sure the audience and those behind Pinoy Idol have taken into consideration hi background of being a former Viva recording artist. Jayann Bautista, was good… damn better than Gretchen. She has this attitude. But she tends to buckle down to pressure.. Kulang pa sa training.
If i were to compare Gretchen and Ram, the latter has the star qualities.. looks and nice voice. Unlike the former… Ang hirap niya tingnan pag kumakanta… Just watch her videos for you to know what i mean.
There’s this thread on GMA’s Pinoy Idol forum: “Ginamit ang pera para lang manalo“.Yes, its a popularity contest.. and yes pag may pera… pwedeng manalo. Pero hindi naman siguro lahat. Pero yun nga.. hindi maaalis sa isipan ng tao… pera kasi ang gagamitin para makakuha ng maraming votes diba? PLus, hindi naman super sensational yung singer to get the sympathy of the viewers.. so baka pera nga. Dad is a Governor. =>
I’m sure a lot of you will agree with me that without the votes, she wouldn’t even be on the top 3. Sabi nga ni Simon Cowell, if this was a singing competition, rather than a popularity contest, then for sure there’s a different winner! =p
But lets focus on the singing….
Gretchen has the voice… but she’s not that good to bag the crown as Pinoy Idol. Come on… listen to her and compare her to other winners of singing competitions and star searches. Most of those who wins these competitions are those power belters… but i’m not looking for one.. Just a voice above the rest… Something different. She might have a hard time pag sumabak na siya sa SOP.. with the GREAT singers of that show.
Raymond Guitterez was ok as a host.. compared to Billy Crawford.. Na hindi madeliver ng maganda ang mga speils.. Babasahin na nga lang nagkakamali pa. =p Not once, not twice,, but many times. =>
Jolina has proven to be an OK judge… konting practice pa din and she’ll inch Paula Abdul when it comes to judging ha.. not singing/performing.
Gretchen can still Improve, pero for sure masasapawan siya ng Second and Third Placers ng Pinoy Idol. Pag magaling ka, matalo ka man.. aangat ka pa rin, right Christian Bautista and Charice Pempengco?
Not only that.. for sure whoever will win Pinoy Dream Academy will surely be compared to Gretchen, and for sure mas magaling… And for sure gagamitan din ng pera.. syempre botohan yan. Teka, although walang pera, baka si bugoy ang manalo. wahhahahaha. Lagot na.. pahirapan ang pag market sa kanya parang Jerome Sala….
Oh, Gretchen maybe the FIRST pinoy idol as Raymond (the host) said. But wala na lang sigurong lokohan… To set the records straight Mr. Host, si Mau Marcelo po ang FIRST IDOL. Idol franchise naman po ang Pinoy idol diba? Sana po marunong kayong lumingon sa pinanggalingan. Pinalitan niyo lang ang pangalan ng show. tsk tsk tsk.
Uy, nasan ang figures ng number of votes? Bakit wala? Pero baka nga tama si Idol Philippines blog:
GMA has yet to reveal the numbers of their voting game not just for the finals but even for the previous weeks. Judging by how they’ve shortened the inaugural season of Pinoy Idol–with double elimination nights and a three-person finale–numbers may not even reach a million.
So, hmmmm.. this may really be, the WORST IDOL ever. =< Mas maganda pa nung nasa TV 5 (former ABC 5) ang show na ito.
Das Wandern shares the same sentiments.
Note: I’m just an avid viewer of singing competitions and star searches. I’m not a pro when it comes to singing.. but i’m sure that my eyes and ears are not failing me. => And, opinion ko po ito… All you can do is convince me to side with you.. Right?
