The Final Four/ Philippine Idol/ Sailor Warrior Faeries

Meet The Final Four!

This is it, pancit! The Final Four candidates for StarStruck's third season has been announced. And this time, it's more dramatic than ever.

One finalist is called in every gap, and the audience (as well as the TV viewers) are going crazy as to who are the two boys and two girls who will make it.

As for Iwa Moto, she gets a lot of flak from the judges because of her "lashings" that she threw last Friday (watch the video on my previous post). But I guess she is true to her words. She is "just too beautiful to be beaten."



Before the end of the show, only two boys remain in contention for one slot and the tension is already brewing. Both Gian of Iloilo and Chuck of Davao have a huge fanbase and have performed well in their previous tasks.

But the announcement was heart-breaking for one of them...

Honestly, it is a huge upset on the part of Gian.

Congratulations to StarStruck's Final Four! Marky, Gian, Iwa, and Jackie! Far from my prediction of Marky, Vivo, Arci, and Iwa.

More videos of the elimination and the heart-break can be found on
Pinoy Rickey.

Oh My! Philippine Idol!

After years of negotiation, ABC-5, currently third in the Philippine TV race, has acquired the franchise of a local version of American Idol.

It was announced yesterday during the finals of Shall We Dance: The Celebrity Dance Challenge (the local spin-off of Dancing With The Stars) through a video of Paula Abdul saying, "Prepare to get wowed!" and there it was...a logo of Philippine Idol!

Here's the news.

Sailor Warrior Faeries

It's not too obvious that I've been addicted to youtubing for the past posts. Please tell me if you find it too annoying.

Anyway, I saw in Yuri's blog, Flight Manual For Dummies, of a series of transformations of the live action version of Sailor Moon. Well, Philippine TV also has it's own Sailor Moon-esque transformation. Here's a short and sweet video of "Sailor Sang'gres" of Encantadia.

THE EMPRESS FOOTNOTES

1) I was actually supposed to post about a trend in Philippine showbizlandia, but I ran out of free time and I was so lost for words. Writer's block, I suppose.

2) I learned from Direk Jon that some of the actors for my play "Si Jewel At Ang Kanyang Dalawang..." underwent a "gay workshop." Two of the actors are straight guys, so playing gay roles are considered a "challenge" for them. I hope they followed my advice and watched To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything. Julie Newmar

3) State of Emergency. What State Of Emergency? I went around and people didn't mind that there is such a thing as "State Of Emergency." People were busy falling in line for WWE Raw Tour, a jazz band is playing in a mall near where I type. It was a happy time to go out.

4) JUST ASKING: What is your favorite TV show?
