MANILA, Philippines - Kanta Pilipinas gets even more exciting as it aired its first elimination night last Saturday. The first batch of hopefuls that made it to the next stage of the competition include Timmy Pavino, Thara Jordana, 5az1, Nicole and Carlo David, Dea Formilleza and Allan Gonzales.

The judges and viewers were wowed with the jaw-dropping performances early on in the competition. Fil-Am singer Timmy was considered a complete package because of his excellent singing voice and stage presence while Fil-Spanish Thara proved that she does not just register well on camera but that she can also be a formidable performer. 5az1 (Herbert, Rex, John, Bryan and Mick) serenaded the audience with their unique blending while the brother-sister tandem of Nicole and Carlo David put their own twist on some acoustic favorites.

Two other hopefuls emerged victorious from the second batch of finalists — Dea Formilleza, the girl-next-door from Davao, and Allan Gonzales, the music wonder from Quezon City who refuses to be confined by his loss of eyesight.

The finalists were chosen by host Rico Blanco and Kanta Pilipinas’ esteemed panel of judges: Maestro Ryan Cayabyab and Asia’s Nightingale Lani Misalucha with the multi-awarded songwriter, producer and hit-maker Vehnee Saturno.

Kanta Pilipinas continues every Saturday night at 9.
