From arnis demonstration to live-sketching, monologue and violin-playing, the candidates of this year’s Binibining Pilipinas edition did not fail to entertain the audience when they showcased their artistry during the Talent Competition held Thursday at the New Frontier Theater in Cubao, Quezon City.

Some solid performances that stood out during the show were Bb. 12 Leslie Avila from Sultan Kudarat who displayed her arnis martial arts prowess; Bb. 17 Chelsea Fernandez from Tacloban City who performed Shakira’s sexy and fiery Whenever, Wherever; and Bb. 18 Ma. Isabela David from Mexico, Pampanga who showed her music skills in playing the keyboards and electric guitar by rendering Alicia Keys’ I Ain’t Got You and Lady Gaga’s Shallow.

Bb. 23 Nicole Borromeo from Cebu and Bb. 6 Elda Louise Aznar from Davao Del Sur expressed their creativity through live-sketching.

Bb. 39 Jasmine Omay from Tarlac Province played the violin with a Les Miserables soundtrack, Castle In The Sky, while Bb. 40 Roberta Angela Tamondong from San Pablo, Laguna dazzled in pink with her Barbie and Ken-inspired dance act.

Bb. 33 Mary Justinne Punsalang from Cavite delivered a powerful piece titled Halimaw, penned by Raymart Avellaneda and directed by Mark Ghosn. The piece is about standing for truth and combating misinformation and disinformation.

In a brief interview with The STAR during the event, Mary Justinne, a TV5 reporter and member of the spoken word artists group, Ampalaya Monologues, said she wanted to merge her being a journalist and a monologist at the same time.

“My personal advocacy is fighting misinformation and disinformation since I am a reporter,” she said, “kasi parang sabi ko dapat yung talent hindi lang siya entertaining, parang maganda kung meron siyang meaning, meron siyang message sa ating lahat.”

On the other hand, crowd favorite Bb. 8 Herlene Nicole Budol from Angono, Rizal, also known as the comedienne Hipon Girl, debuted her single Gandang Hipon in a colorful dance number. She also performed TikTok hit, Paro Paro G, as she exited the stage.
